Heatsinks and computer case are becoming all the more reliant on the larger 140mm fans and at X-bit Labs they decided to make throrough study of 140mm fans to find the most efficient solution available today.

The test shows fans being tested in a windtunnel made by suction straws, but it also tests noise and compare the airflow per decibel. A very interesting comparison that offers some surprises and not the least shows that te price tag doesn’t necesserily match the performance.

The participating fans:

  • Deep Cool UF140
  • Evercool Red Scorpion (RSF-14)
  • Nanoxia DX-14-700/ DX-14-1200
  • Noctua NF-P14 FLX
  • Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentPRO PK-1/2/3
  • Revoltec AirGuard 140 mm (RL060)
  • Scythe Slip Stream 140 (SM1425SL12H)
  • Thermalright TY-140
  • Thermalright X-Silent 140
  • Xigmatek Crystal 140 (CLF-F1451)

The entire comparison can be found at X-bitlabs.com.
