140mm fans for radiators

I've been looking around for some quieter 140mm fans, i've seen a couple of reviews, and looked around on extreme systems. They recommend some fans by noiseblocker the pk series, however in this review the thermalright ty 140 does better. I was wondering if anyone had the ty 140's or if anyone had seen anymore reviews of them?

Any assistance would be appreciated.

There's a review of some 140mm fans here that you might already have seen.

If you're looking for relatively quiet fans then you would probably get better results with Scythe GT1850s and 140mm/120mm fan adapters. I'd tend to go with Martinm210 reviews as he tests them on rads.

Yea been looking through that thread, the scythe GT's do seem pretty immense, if only they'd release them for 140's then they'd be lush. I'm more just trying to get the best performance for the quietest noise level.

140mm Enermax magmas should do the job, fairly quiet for the good level of CFM they have.

Aero Cool shark fans are great for keeping cool, yet quiet. I'm using them in my watercooled rig. They come in a range of colours too.
