Even if the fan is 140mm, the fact that it is a slim fan will impact noise/performance ratio. I would have really enjoyed this having a 25/30mm fan or something. I really need a cooler that stands between price/performance and wieght wise between Hyper 212 Evo and the high end Phanteks PH-TC14(no Noctua, too ugly and too expensive)/Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 2 (or 3 series for that matter).
Waiting to see comparisons to the 212 EVO. I just bought the EVO and am overall happy, but the fan rattles like a baby toy at anything over idle because it hangs upside down and it blocks a RAM slot unless I use RAM with no heat spreader...Though being able to add a second fan to this cooler has been great!
