I came across this today

http://www.gelidsolutions.com/produc...=2&id=53&tab=2

I can mount 140mm fans on my cooler....hmm.....should I replace my
AP-15


cause it looks like the gelid fan has a static pressure of 1.45mm (aq
~~same as H2O)
and the AP-15 only pushes 0.081mm H2O

are there any other 140mm fans that are pretty silent yet pushing better static pressure? (pretty silent meaning >36-39dba please)

I'm looking more for static pressure cause higher is better for my heatsink

1 inch = 25.4mm, the scythe is really 0.081 in X 25.4mm/in = 2.06mm H20 static pressure which is greater than the Gelid.
oh....then that noise blocker fan would loose right?

then are there any better than AP-15 140mm fans out there? >39dba of course

Yes, noisebreaker aren't for radiator or heatsink they more for case fans.
You will have a lot more fan selections for 120mm fans as compared to 140mm fans.
Thermalright TY-140 fan seems to be good choice, but I don't know if it has more static pressure than the Scythe GT A-15.

Are you only restricted to 25mm thickness fan? San Ace probably the best bet for static pressure/noise ratio other than the GT series. Go check ehume's review for fan comparison he did a fine job.

eh...I would like a 140mm and no, I'm not restricted to 25mm thickness....I don't want 120mm fans cause I want a 140mm fan that can use my heatsink to its full ability

You are putting these fans on the Noctua C12? If so...I really don't see the point in such a high powered fan on such a loose fin array heatsink. Even with the stock fan I feel a large amount of air going through the fins to the base. Yet it still does not cool very well.
