I'm NEW so disregard the stupidity. One of you, or shall I say, "Some of You" did not want Noctua fans to run their cooling radiators. I think the comment was, didn't like the color or too expensive, or whatever. Well kidos May I put you at ease. The Rosewill 140mm "Hyperborea" Fans are as good , Now, Watch It, watch it, as the Noctua NF-A14 PWM (140mm) believe it or not; but don't take my word for it, try it! I've of course used many did I say many of both. Main difference between the two; all bits and pieces weighed and considered, is that the Noctua are good for 150,000 Hours of continuous use as the Rosewill are good for 50,000 hours respectively as stated by the manufacturers. So, Boys and Girls there you have it.

Welcome to the forums Pudgen.

When you say they are "as good", is this simply your opinion or do you have some testing behind this theory. There are a few members out there that have done some standardized empirical testing and their studies are generally accepted over opinion. My questions would be, are you suggesting they are better as case fans (high cfm) or as radiator fans (high static pressure)? Also, many members prefer silence over any other feature. This needs to be included in any comparisons.

Here are a few examples of some standardized testing.

The Hyperborea are very good fans, but they're no Noctua.
