So im about to buy the Noctua NH-U14S (CPU Cooler ) but Idk what type of fan do i need for it. I want to add another fan to it but the original fan it came in was 140x150x25 and i cant find any 150mm fans. OR can i just buy a 140mm fan and it will fit?

===========================
Also, will this fan fit in my Mobo. From some research i think it will fit but just wanna make sure.

The fan size is 140mm not 150mm, so yes a 140mm fan will fit

edit: yes it will fit ur mobo, just make sure you don't use a cheap 140mm fan. try to find one that is similar in performance to the original

I'm gonna use this fan and fyi its the same fan used in the cpu cooler so it should work

Why another fan? According to this test at TechPowerUp, minimal temp gain, and a little noisier with the second fan.

The u14s is a very quite and perfrming cooler adding another fan would be a vvery tricky job as u have to get the same fan as the stock one plus u have to get a y cable for the connection of both the fans in that y connector so that both are controlled at same speeds so that they do not cause hinderence
Diff rpms and different fans would cause hinderence and downgrading the performance of the cooler



So dont go for another fan untill u make sure the above 2 conditions

And yes it would fit the mobo perfectly

I saw a review on the card and it says the name of the fan thats on the cpu cooler and thats what i searched on newegg. Same exact name and looks. Also, my mobo has a this slot for another fan called the CPU OPT slot or w/e, its 4 pin. As for fan speed, the one im adding would be slower but i prob wont add another one then since u said they have to be exactly the same. If i wanted to add another i wouldnt just have to buy 1 fan, id have to buy 2 so im sure they are the same.
