200mm fan vs two 140mm fans?

Yokim

Hi,

I have a simple question.

 

What would you pick, one 200mm or two 140mm fans? Whats best for CFM/dB?

 

A 200mm would move more air then one 140mm but if you use two 140mm, would they move more? And if so would they sound more?

 

Thanks

@Yokim It really depends on what fans you use. If you get something like Noiseblockers or Noctuas then the 140mm fans would be better/quieter. I would go for two 140mm fans because there will be more options in terms of looks.

What are those 140mm?

As nsyedhasan said, if they are premium fans, they are going to rock.

A good 200mm will outperform a pair of normal 140mm. E.g. are Bitfenix spectre pro 200mm, and Cooler Master mega flow.

I am thinking of BitFenix Spectre Pro 200mm and Noctua NF-A14, or anyone know any better fans for airflow?

Well in terms of size 200mm is bigger than 2 140mm fans(20^2>14^2*2) but it really comes down to you, personally would take 200mm one because it will be more likely quieter...

Also for Watercooling later on... GL finding something to put a 200mm fan on :D

Okey thanks guys!

I think I will go with 2 140mm.

Is it impossible to find radiatiors for 200mm? Are there any pressure optimized 200mm fans?

It's surely possible but definitely hard...

Larger sized fans are more directly for airflow and silence.

The bigger the fan, typically, the more CFM and lower RPM. The pressure is greatly reduced.

 

You probably won't find a 200mm diameter radiator.

Just be prepared to do some modding with 200MM rads, only a few cases fit them well and easily. Do your research and save yourself the hassle I had with a 200MM rad.

 

One additional point is that if you go with a "standard" rad size you will be able to use it from build to build, case to case.

 

 

Anyhoo, the Bitfenix Specter 200MM fans fit the 200MM Phobya extreme well.

Wha...psh...where do you find these things?!

In all honesty, I don't know how well the radiator will perform with one of the "suggested" fans being a Cooler Master MegaFlow 200mm. Looking at Cooler Master's site, the MegaFlow is rated as

  • 700 RPM
  • 110CFM
  • 0.595 mm H20
