Currently the best 140 rad fans?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

When i say the best i really mean the best! 140mm radiator fans out there? (This obviously means having really good static pressure)

noctuas are very good , so are silent wings , but there costly , Arctic has pretty darn good fans , and there usually about 50% cheaper than noctua/cm

The EK Vardar fans are not bad too

Also Noctua NF-A14 are these the Industrial PPC ones? There seems to be 2 versions.

Judging by rated pressure noctua A14 3000rpm. Keep in mind though rated pressure is done by the manufacturer.

Gentle typhoon which isn't rated outperform noctua at same rpm. But they are discontinued.

A14's are not that good at any pressure rating... Peeps need to get off the Noctua Bandwagon...

The EK Vardar fans are pretty much untouched in the 140mm segement, with the Phanteks PH-F140MP being a close competitor only at low RPM, and the Noiseblocker B14-3 being second place at higher noise levels. Oh and the brand new 30 dollar a pop ML140 Pro fans are basically even with them.

This last image covers far too wide a range to usefully distinguish them, but from the raw data the A14 fans are mid to upper range at best...

Thats what im talking about.
Wether or not that transfer to real performance i dont know.
But i thought i mention since OP wants "The best"
Personally i chose fans out of style. Picture attached :)

I know, and thus I included real life performance metrics. Noctua has some really really good 120mm offerings, but relatively speaking the 140mm ones are much less impressive.

I will verify that the 140mm Noctuas aren't all they're cracked up to be. I bought into all the hype here. Wish I hadn't. (Still no ragrets on buying the LTT Edition fans, though!)

 

I just replaced mine with the Phanteks PH-F140MP and they're WORLDS better at pushing through my 45mm radiators. The Noctuas worked, but needed to be at fairly high RPMs (and therefore noise) to make decent airflow. They might be fine for low FPI 30mm rads, but not my HardwareLabs 45mm.

 

I run the Phanteks PH-F140MP at 70% or less, and they're nearly silent at anything under 80% in my Fractal R5.

Corsair just released their ML pro fans. They ARE stupid expensive but they also work very well and are actually noticeably quiet than most fans (compared by me i compared it to phanteks fans and silentwings 2)

Currently the best radiator fans do appear to be the Corsair ML140s, though they don't come cheap. And you must use them PWM, not DC controlled.

Try the NF-A14 IPPC3000 they spin at 3000RPM vs. the LTT edition (standard) NF-A14's 1500RPM.

EKWB's Vardar series spins faster (3000 RPM), have more static pressure, and a better design, they are currently the best.

The last thing I want is a jet engine in my case.

 

I have the 2000RPM industrials, too (ordered the same time as the LTT edition fans) just as a failsafe if the temps get ridiculous they'll go full throttle. They have TONS of airflow....at the maximum RPM which I can hear in the hallway of my apartment when my PC is behind 2 oak doors. That's not acceptable to me.

Well on the upside Noctua will hopefully soon be releasing their replacements they announced at Computex.

I'm happy with my Noctua iPPC 2000RPM PWM fans with my 280mm radiator (Cryorig A80)


Very quiet up until 800 RPM, then they will become audible in quiet rooms. I run mine at only 20-40% speed but they never reach 40% because my temps are so low.
