Noctua NF-A14 PWM 140mm Chromas Dropped 3 of these in to replace Corsair stock Case Fans and at first I had a howling wind tunnel. But after going into the UEFI and setting up a Silent Profile to slow them down a bit they are now running around 600 to 800rpm and are Dead Silent.
great fans; so much better looking that the brown noctua fans
Very quit and performs very well.
To cool this beast i used a combination of the famous noctua fans Chromax series: 2 x NF-A14 PWM in the front as intake, and 1 x NF-S12A PWM in the rear. the 14 cm fans move a lot of air and have lowered the cpu temperature by 3 degrees compared to stock fans. They are also very very quiet, I can hear them only over 1200/1300 rpm.
They look great, run quiet, and helped shave 3-5°C off both my CPU and GPU load temps. I'm a big fan of Noctua's chromax line and hope they continue to expand it!
Beautiful, quiet fans. My ownly gripe is the 4-pin "extension" cable that comes with the fan. It easily disconnects from the fan, and is too short for just about anything. For the price I paid, seeing something like that was very disappointing. I had a knock off a star for those lousy cables!
I installed this to replace a 3pin Fractal fan at the rear of my case - partly to gain 4-pin control and partly for aesthetics as I wanted an "all black" look.
I previously had a second identical fan sat atop of my case for cool air intake and it looked and performed great, but it blocked insertion of a later added 5.25" Bluray drive being too thick at 25mm so I replaced it with thinner form fans.
