Have that both Noctua P12 and P14 and TY-140, if agasint P14 performance wise almost similar, but if both cranked up to their max, the noise profile for TY-140 simply beats P14 and P12, also with PWM, you simply easier to control the speed thru mobo fan header.

just a sidenote: you need other fanclips (eg megahlems) to fit the ty 140 on the d14, or you need to cut off a bit from the ty 140...

I just read a guy who fit a TY-140 to a D14 without cutting the fan. He used drills - held with his hand because the plastic is soft - to allow the pegs to go further in. This allowed the Noctua clips to work on the fan.

I have a NIB TY-140 laying around. Would I be better off installing the TY-140 where the P12 is installed?

Thanks guys!

Didn't you just get a Silver Arrow?

Any reason you switched to the D14?

I'll be testing the TY-140's myself soon. The big question for me is not so much the performance as the noise, both amount and quality.
