My System Specs

Default Undervolting Scythe Kama Maru fans (140mm fan recommendation thread)

I'm rethinking my fan decisions for my build in progress, now deciding to use 3 Panaflo U1s on my triple rad rather than a set of unruly 6000rpm monsters (San Ace). So to manage them I'll be using a 4-channel Rheobus, which leaves me with one channel free.

The Corsair 800D I'll be getting (once it hits, hopefully soon) supports either a 120mm or 140mm fan on the rear for exhaust, so I figured I'd grab a 140mm fan and throw it on the last rheobus channel. My options seem to be pretty limited (I'm shopping on Performance-PCs), so it's basically between Yate Loon and the Scythe Kama Maru line. I've heard bad things about Scythe fans on fan controllers (at least, for the Ultra-Kaze models), but has anyone had any luck/problems with the Kama Maru fans? Is there another fan I should be throwing my money at?

Thanks in advance, everyone.

I'd pick the yate loons for 140mm since kaze maru's fit on 120mm mounts
afaik...most of scythe's fan (with the exception of the ultra kazes) undervolt relatively well
