140MM Fans

Hello, I'm currently looking for a couple of 140MM fans to switch out with my default ones that came with my Lian Li PC-A71F (which are ****e).

Any tips on what I should get for best possible airflow?

If your not worried about looks, then Noctuas are great, high airflow and silent.
I'm using a 140mm Enermax TB Apolish as an exhaust and I'm pretty happy with it.

Another vote for the Noctua NF-P14 FLX, I used to run 2 of those in my old air cooled rig (CM 690-II Advanced), very good fans as with pretty much anything Nocuta produce... but as always, pricey.

Thank you I'll go with Scythe I guess. Will fit with the 120mm I'll get in the back.

I've had bad luck with Scythe, with my last 140mm fan of thiers dying on me and it wasn't cheap.

Browsing newegg the bgears b-Blaster 140mm fan seems to have the highest flow and the reviews look pretty good too, although they are out of stock at the egg.

I also like the look of this one.
