Hey guys,

I'm trying to decide between the Cougar CF-V14HBs or the Corsair AF140s.

Going to add two on top in exhaust, one on the bottom and one on the front as intake.

Help is appreciated!

Thanks.

The Cougars are primo, mine have been running 3+ years and no problems (I have used 12 in different builds). The Corsairs seem to be modeled after the Cougar, and if they are clones of the Cougars then they too will be good. I'd get the cheaper of the two. I note that the Cougars give a couple of CFM more than the Corsairs and are quieter as well. So I would give Cougar the edge.

Was leaning towards the Cougars. For some reason I like the design of the Corsairs just a bit more. Cougar it is though. Thanks for the extra push ;)

Sorry! I have to revive this..

If I buy, let's say..4-6 cougar fans (depending on if I replace the current ones on my R4 as well), what would be the best way to hook them up to my system?

Would I want them hooked up to my motherboard or could I hook them all up to the Fractal R4s fan controller in the front? What would I need to hook that many fans up to the controller?

Thanks again.
