Fans!!!! Expanding to 140mm size. Cyclops needs your help!

Hello fellas. As I'm sure alot of you guys know, I've been testing and reviewing alot of 120mm fans Here.

I think it's time to expand my operations and move on to test 140mm fans. This is where you guys can help me with choosing the right components. Right now, I'm trying to decide which parts to get for this build and first things first, I need to choose a test bench and a power supply. For my 120mm test rig, I'm using Lian-Li's PC-T60 Pitstop chassis and Seasonic's X-Series SS-460FL power supply.

I'm thinking of buying another one of each and get on with it. If you guys have better and/or cheaper alternatives, I'd love to see them. The processor in my 120mm rig is an i7 920 and it's using 1.42 volts under full load and according to my UPS screen, the whole rig is barely using 300 watts. I'm probably going with a sandy bridge based processor for the new test rig and those things consume way less than Nahelems so a 460 watt gold rated powersupply is overkill.

Xigmatek is sending me a Prime SD1484 which is a single tower 140mm heatsink, perfect for the job.

So throw those suggestions at me. A good, fanless power supply and a decent open test bench.

Well, the support is overwhelming to say the least

Thermalright TY-140 is the best 140mm fan I've used. If I had a choice, I wouldn't have gotten my PC-T60. I hate that I have to pay to get USB on the front of the chassis and pay more for the dual 140mm fan bracket. The handle also gets in the way so it's always off.

I have a pair of TY-150s and I have high hopes for them. Thanks for the feedback.

If you focus on quiet <30dB 140mm fans sans LEDs, I would be really interested in the result

I think Cougar is trying to one up Noctua on ugly colors. Orange doesn't go well with blue and black motherboards unless you are trying to go for a Halloween theme

I think the Thermalright TY-140 are pretty much top notch

I've also seen reviews of the Yate Loon

P.S. I'm a big fan of your fan reviews

The Arctic Cooling F14 is a surprisingly good fan for the price. You can't go wrong with a 140mm, fdb, pwm fan for $10.

The cougar vortex hdb grinds when blowing upwards which is too bad since other than that its a decent fan.

A lot of people seem to recommend the bgears b-blaster. I picked up a few and tried two and was very disappointed. The bearings make too much noise and they don't undervolt all that well. I'm not even going to bother putting them in my case.
