Can anyone point me in the right direction for some 140mm PWM case fans ?
seems plenty out there now but in the past I've used the Thermalright TY-140 but they are not brilliant and occasionally make ticking noises etc.

Just need bog standard 125mm square mounting holes (i read the 150mm Thermalright is not standard mounting)

Need to be Smooth and quiet with good performance.

Cheers

akasa apaches 140mm are good at shifting loads of air. Whilst they are great for use as case fans etc they are however not suitable for watercooling radiators as they lack static pressure like most 140mm fans.

Thanks guys, not totally convinced any of the manufactures have the wherewithal to develop hitec blade shapes ;) some interesting styles recommended.
I think the only thing I am sure of is what bearing they need to have, sure they will all run quietly also reviews are a waste of time as they just test flat out performance that's why I appreciate real peoples experience.

Nothing has come up twice so I may just take a stab at a couple of the cheaper options on the website
