I'll be buying a Noctua NH-C14 heatsink in the next couple of days. Though it comes with 2 Noctua fans (and they're no slouch), I'm wondering if it'd be possible to replace the two 140mm fans with something that might be better at pushing air while being quieter.

I'm turning to this msg board to see if anybody has worthwhile recommendations.

What say you, fan veterans? :)

not sure why anyone chooses c14 over the better and cheaper d14, but... i wouldnt bother upgrading those fans... they might not be the absolute silentest, but theyre close, and will stay that way forever

a lot of silent fans get louder over time

drop them down to 600rpm and you are golden

Because the D14 wouldn't fit in my HTPC case.

Thanks for the tip. Will do. :)
