140mm fans with 120mm mounting holes!

Let's hope they're good performers too!

Yeah I was really happy to see that too. Makes mounting a lot easier really.

Looks to be good numbers given the RPM models.

+1 to that Cmetaphor. Thats the one thing I love about the Noctua NF-p14s. Glad to see Scythe follow suit! :)

There's him getting excited yet again..

Yea that's pretty nice news, stock case w/ a 140mm fan is brilliant, these 140mm fans at not too slow RPM can push a bunch of air without making the noise that some 120mm fans make.

A little OT, wonder why Gelid hasn't come with any 140mm of theirs, those magnetic bearings worked out well for them, and the looks were real good.

I think HWC should start doing fan reviews, the only decent fan reviews I can find are at SPCR and they're only just decent... so I'd really like some good fan reviews on this site!

I'd love to see those too. I have a stack of 120mm fans about 3 feet tall in my "parts" closet, lol.
I suppose I could give it a go though, I have a fairly decent sound-proof area. Would just need a CFM meter, decimeter... Hmmm.... ideas...
