Been reading some glowing reports/reviews on theese fans, im wondering if they would fit ok on an Alpenfohn k2 cooler, product description states that they use 120mm mounting holes.

Shouldn't be a problem unless you have anything in the top PCI x1 slot. Even then, it may not be an issue.

It's only the the extra width of these compared to the 140mm Alpenfohn fan that makes the difference. Mounting holes are the same :)

Lol, if only you had got a Silver Arrow to begin with! They would fit, but why do you need to change the fans on the K2? At 4.2GHz the 3570k doesn't really put out enough heat to stress the K2 fans?

The k2 fans are a touch on the loud side, and ive read that the Thermalrights are a lot quieter. My reason for opting for the k2 was that it was much cheaper, and better looking than the SA. Currently have an Asus xonar DX installed in the top pcie slot, but it can be dropped to a lower slot if need be. I intend to oc the cpu a bit higher as well at some point.

Ah fair enough. The SA isn't the best looking must agree. :) They do look good those TY140's.

Cheers Helios, btw are you still running the stock fans on the k2?

@BrianB, i also quite like the light blue and white colour combination on the TY fans.

@ Setter, I meant the noise to airflow results from them. I do like the blue/white colour though, I think the bogey colour ones are hideous, the blue is much better. :)

Lol, bogey colour. Great description.:D Indeed, the performance figures are very impressive, particularly on the noise rating.

@Helios, still rocking an old silver TRUE on my x58 system, still a fantastic cooler after all theese years.

Yeah amazing coolers! I installed one in my brother's rig and it's been solid for a few years now. That reminds me actually, the Venomous X is a brilliant near silent cooler people can still get on OCUK: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HS-093-TR&groupid=701&catid=2330&subcat=2352

@ settler
Very interested in finding out how the TY-140s compare to K2 fans. Please keep us informed. :)

I think they are 120mm one way and 140mm mount holes the other way

TY-140/141/143/145/147 are all same; 120mm fan mounts (105mm spacing)

Ty-150 is 105mm (120mm mounting holes) X 125mm (140mm mounting holes)

TY-140/143/147

TY-147 is 700-1300rpm & same fan blade as TY-140
TY-143 is 700-2500rpm & same fan blade as TY-140

TY-141/145 are same measurements but different fan blades than old TY-140

Not sure of which has what bearings.


Edit: I think I got the model number / blade design right.
