    i have been looking for a cheap replacement for my Cooler-Master fans in my case, i would like to have like 4x120mm, 1xfront, 2xtop and 1xside, so i have been looking at Yate Loon D14SL-12 but are they oki?

    bcs the first google i did i ended up with a thread from Hardforum.com one says his Yate Loon D14SL-12 only had mountings holes for 135mm not 140mm :wtf:

    Source: Yate Loon D14SL-12 is not 140x140 ? (hardforum.com)

    bcs i am not seeking to spend around 21,90euro for 140mm fans from Noctua even ino they r quality but i don't have that kind og money laying around for this.

    ino that caseking.de got the Yate Loon D14SL-12 fans and a danish site called Coolerkit.dk but after reading about the mounting holes might be 135mm and not 140mm i dunno if i wanna take that chance :(

    ino they say u get what u buy for but i have heard that Yate Loon has been many years in the fan business and sale good but cheap fans, so a little help would be nice, and no i don't want LED fans just regular not load once but some that can still move some air.

    That's weird indeed. Both the 135mm and 140mm fans are called the same models. Not even a letter differentiating them.

    The 135mm fans are most probably the ones you usually see in PSUs.


    And Yate Loon as cheap alternatives to CM fans? They're priced roughly the same over here. The Yate Loons are actually a bit more expensive though, but just by a bit. :laugh:

    caseking customer reviews say nothing about false mounting hole dimensions.
    Also the hardforum guy mentioned his Yate Loon fan supposedly is not the D14SL-12 model he received.

    Only heard good things about them.. How ever the reason i never bothered with them is due to the lack of 120mmx38mm fans as these you can run slower due to their extra thickness.

    The other reason is that in summer it can hit 30c-34c and the bigger fansas normally they have some beefy power behind them..

    I have a NMR-MAT 120mmx38mm and i mistakenly just placed it on the table not thinking about the reset bios would put the fan at full speed and managed to get it self of the table and hit some thing ripping to blades of it :(..

    That 120x38 one is good as long as you don't need it less that 1krpm.

    I just glued the fins back on it but pretty crazy that it was able to go though 2 blades i guess i should be grateful it was not 2 fingers lol.

    thx, entropy13, MRCL and AsRock, i wrote a email to the danish company that sales them to ask if they r really 140mm or just 135mm and if they say 135mm i properly thing i need to use around 20euro pr. fan instead of just 8euro pr. fan.
