My System Specs

Default 140 mm case fan

I want to get a good 140 mm that is a good compromise between airflow and noise.

I looked and found :
- NCIX.com - Buy Noctua NF-P14FLX 140MM Ultra Quiet Cooling Fan 750-1200RPM 71-110M3/H 10.1-19.6DBA Molex - NF-P14FLX In Canada.
NCIX.com - Buy Xigmatek XLF-F1454 140MM Blue Cooling Fan with White LED 1000RPM 63.5CFM <16DBA - XLF-F1454 In Canada.
NCIX.com - Buy Yate Loon D14SM-12 140MM Quiet Cooling Fan 1400RPM 62CFM 29DB 3PIN & 4PIN Sleeve Bearing OEM - D14SM-12 In Canada.

I would really like to hear from someone who really tried one. I'm also open to suggestion!

I've got a couple Scythe Kaze Maru 1900rpm fans. 104cfm @ 41db but its actually far quieter than that IMO. Theyre not available on NCIX right now, for whatever reason, but here's a link to the Scythe site:

I have a pair of Xigmatek XLF-F1455 they're very quiet and push a decent amount of air.

I've been ogling this particular fan for a while as a potential replacement for the 140mm fans on my 800D, but I can't vouch for their quality personally, as of yet. They look pretty darn good on paper.
Thermalright X-Silent 140mm Liquid Bearing Silent Cooling Fans Products Model: TR-X-SILENT140 [TR-X-SILENT140] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come
