got this to replace a fractal design r2 140 (included in the R4 case) which broke a blade when i stuck my finger in it-by mistake ... it worked it just wobbled if speed was low.

antec twocool seem to have some whine/more noise at highest speed- compared to the FractalDesign ones,
but what im wondering about is that the airflow seems peripherally directed instead of straight out the fan... i dont see how it helps blow over the hard drives like that... its been 10 minutes and the temp hasnt come back yet...

interesting...

i got 2 of the fractal design 140s ... and tested against the antecs
they're placed in front intake of Fractal Design R4 case

with the Fractal Design fans while the CPU & system temp is lower by at 5 deg celsius, the HDD temps are up 1-2 degrees ... not the way i wanted it to go...

If this setup is more quiet, the temp difference wouldn't matter to me.
