My Opinion About Thermalright TY-140 fan
yesterday I bought one of those fans, I think someone would appreciate a little personal opinion about it!
Well, the fan, as you know, is a 140mm PWM, with 120mm holes without any adapter included in the box. Actually there's nothing else but the fan itself in the package!
But I appreciated the ECO-Material Box, that is entirely composed of....PAPER. Very very good, thermalright!
The dimensions are 140mm x 160mm x 25mm, so, not all the 120mm holes will be goot for fitting the fan.
But let's talk about performance/ noise:
The fan is FANTASTIC.
There is no clue of ticking noises or something annoying, both in vertical or orizontal placement....the only thing you'll hear, is the sound of the air that is moving.
At low RPM is dead silent...you can barely hear it at 800rpm, but at the same time it moves air!
At full speed of 1300rpm it makes some noise, but it is still very quiet, considering the air that moves and the pression of it!!!
The only bad notes are the sequent:
the noise raises very much if you place the fan where there is something blocking the intake of the air. To be clear: if the fan push air in a radiator or in a grill....it's ok, but if the fan TAKE air FROM a radiator or a grill, the noise raise very very much, and I don't know why.
And the other note is that the power cable is too short.
So, the fan is wonderful, performant and silent, but you can't place it for example in the front of the case.
You can place it on top of the case, only if you put the fan pushing air versus the grll and not taking air from it.
That's all...11 euros that surely WORTH!
