i think im going to swap out the Noctua fans for the TY-140's and see how she runs.

anybody have more experience with either of these fans?? please feel free to chime in and give some additional insight.

thx

The TY-140's are some of the best, non-standard 120mm fans I've come across so far. The problem is their applications are incredibly limited due to the odd shape and large size.

For standard 140mm fans, the Thermalright X-Silent 140's are pretty tough to beat in terms of performance/noise/price.

Both are usually cheaper than Noctua's and don't have the poop colour scheme.
