Hi , im planning to buy a Noctua NH-U14S soon and im wondering if its possible to replace the fan that will be coming with it , it comes with a 140MM fan with 120mm mounting holes with a built in noise dampening thingy. I cant seem to find any images of a single nh-u14s using a different fan. Do you guys also know if theres a 140mm corsair fan with 120mm holes?

Thanks in advance guys :)

why would you replace the fan? the NF-A15 fan it comes with, will be mounted via some metal-clips, which again will fit into fans with 120mm mounting-holes.

Its ugly as hell lol , and from the unboxing videos ive seen , unlike the nh-d14 which has noise or vibration dampening material so the fan wont cause any noise or vibration allowing nh-d14 owners to swap fans , the u14s (i think) has noise/vib reducing material but its on the fan itself , so my biggest worry is if I put corsair fan there would it be too noise since theres since the fans will touch the heatsink directly w/o any dampening mats.
