Recently got involved in fan project. Note all the 120mm but the 14r are low static pressure. As they describe them, " specifically designed for low resistance applications". So they will dramatically slow flow if you put them behind or in front of mesh grille. Forget about filters with these fans. If you bench them on a table you will be wow-ed how much air they move, it's also very focused so that increases perception. But once you add a grille in either side it slows down a lot.

P.S. the smaller the gap between fan blades, the higher the static pressure (usually this means more blades). This usually sacrifices focus of the air stream. Hope this helps someone.

Nice price, snagged a few last round. My issue is how to power these 11 fans with 8 fan headers 😅

So it is not recommended to use for front and back fans on Cooler Master Lite 3.1? I am think to get the 120mm fans for my case.

Now idea about the case. If there will be any kind of grille other than the round wire style - don't get any of the 120mm except 14r (which is basically 140mm fan with 120mm mounting points).

Edit: this is the"round wire grille" I am talking about

I have a s340 and replace all the fans with 3x140mm plus 1x120mm noctuas. The airflow is way way better and they make less noise. Totally silent configuration with the kraken x62. I have a sli setup and the airflow with stock fans was not good enough to avoid the top card to overheat only when playing the division (I know its a very specific issue, but this game is making all cards super hot for whatever reason, good game to test cards actually)

be careful is you have a kraken or any AIO watercooling l, it might not like the noctuas straight out of he box.

The price almost got me, but I've already told myself I'm not buying any more fans until Noctua releases their sterrox a-series.

Heard (no pun) these aren't as silent when horizontal vs standing up. Deal breaker.

You can always get one of the Swiftech PWM fan controllers [amazon.com] which can power up to 8 fans at once. Or you can get one of the Noctua NA-FC1 4-pin PWM Fan Controller [amazon.com] which can control up to 3 fans with a splitter.

I'm looking into the Noctua NA-FC1 since my EVGA motherboard doesn't actually allow control of PWM case fans, even though it has 4 pin connector. The 140mm Redux at 1500 RPM is a bit louder than I want, but I cannot control the fan currently, so looking into the Nocuta solution.

I don't notice a difference between the fans being silent when horizontal vs standing, then again the 140mm 1500 RPM redux fans aren't exactly that quiet to begin with lol.

I will say the Noctua NF-A14 FLX at 1200 RPM is definitely quieter compared to the redux fan at 1500 RPM, but man does the redux fan move a lot more air at 1500 PRM
