There aren't a lot of reviews covering the acoustics of PWM fans with 140mm mounting holes, and the models I have found are out of my price range for trial and error.

Which ones have you guys tried and what are your thoughts?

Off the top of my head I can't think of any 140mm pwm fans. Why do you need 140mm fans?

I found a few fans worth trying listed available in Europe, can't say for US:

http://www.bequiet.com/en/casefans/264

http://www.bitfenix.com/global/en/produ ... e-pro-pwm/

http://www.phobya.com/en/products/Luefter_Nano-G.php

http://www.alpenfoehn.de/index.php?opti ... 44&lang=en

These fans are believed to be some kind of quiet at lower voltages. Haven't tried anyone myself.

Because the stock fans on my case are 140mm. :P

Will they accept 120mm fans? Can you do without PWM? What is your case?

Not without an adapter, my case is Cubitek's Mini Tank: http://www.techwarelabs.com/cubitek-mini-tank-case-review/

I could go with non-PWM fans, but would prefer letting SpeedFan manage them than always reaching for a knob.

Afaik Speedfan is well able to run nonpwm fans at different rpm.

By the way, i'm very fond of your case, missed the chance to buy one myself, right now it's nowhere to be found in Europe.
