140 mm Fan Roundup
The fans of this size are currently pretty popular. It is not only because processor air-coolers more and more often use 140 mm fans these days, but also because they gradually replace the common 120 mm fans inside contemporary system cases, which is exactly what happened back in the days with the 92x92x25 mm fans. This is a pretty logical process, although it will be some time before 120 mm fans go away completely. Nevertheless, we believe that 140 mm fans will continue increasing their presence not only in the CPU cooling products, but also as system case components.
Well, today we are proud to introduce to you 13 fan models from nine cooling solutions manufacturers, such as: Deep Cool, Evercool, Nanoxia, Noctua, Noiseblocker, Revoltec, Scythe, Thermalright and Xigmatek.
However, if you are looking for the absolutely best 140mm fan in terms of noise-to-airflow ratio, then you should check out our leaders: Scythe Slip Stream 140, Thermalright TY-140 and Thermalright X-Silent 140. These fans not only create the largest airflow at the same level of noise as the other fans, but they are also cheaper than their competitors. Moreover, Slip Stream 140 and TY-140 can be installed into the slots designed for 120 mm fans, which makes them a universal solution. Although we would recommend the manufacturers to include some vibration-absorbing mounts with these fans and make the TY-140 power cable longer. Note, that X-Silent 140 doesn’t have any of these drawbacks.
Summing up the results of our today’s competition, we would like to award the three leaders - Scythe Slip Stream 140, Thermalright TY-140 and Thermalright X-Silent 140
