Recommend 140mm fans

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, I just need someone to give me the name of some good quiet high static fans for a 280mm rad (Cooler Master Nepton 280L) Preferably square design fans. Not looking for anything flashy like fans with LED's. Cheers guys!

I am thinking of getting the sp140 corsair fans for my coolermaster nepton 280L as the default fans are said to be loud so I though to changing them to the high static pressure, lower noise fans from corsair. Good/bad move? I have looked at noctua fans but they always come in packs of 1 which means higher price for 2.

I have personally had a bad experience with those fans. They have a sort of whining noise at low rpm. Definitely not the quietest.

I dont have experience with the 140mm version of Noctua, but their 120mm are very good. I can also highly recommend the MasterFan Pro 140s. And if your budget will allow, the Corsair ML140s.

The SP140mm are decent but probably won't improve over the originals by very much, some other fans that are good would be the Fractal Design Venturi's or even the Pro series of the Corsair fans.

If you're going to get the 280L anyway, just see how the stock fans do before preemptively buying replacements.

I agree with WM, that being said these are my favorite 140mm fans so far.  I've used Vardar and Venturi also but these have been better with my high FPI radiator (not sure on Nepton's fpi)

 

The Nopton comes with Jetflo's according to their page so if you can just control them you should be able to get pretty good airflow

Corsair: 

  AF(air flow) for non radiator fans

  SP (static pressure) for radiator fans. 

 

Been using them for years and years and they are quiet almost never break and do the job very well.  The ones you buy depend on how much you want to spend.

Phanteks PH-F140MP are going to be the best low-noise, high-static pressure fans I've worked with. Better than Corsair, Noctua (haven't tried 0ld_Chicken's recommendation, though) Fractal.... If you want low noise, and have a high fin density, put these Phanteks in a pull config and you're super set. As long as you're running at 85% or less, they're silent. Full throttle you can hear, but only barely.

?? i though corsair only did 120mm SP's.

 

best fan is to go with the corsair ML 140 there best of both airflow and static pressure :3

The SP140mm ones would be the LED versions for the regular ones unless you go for the ML or ML pro's which are good but a bit pricey.
