Thermalright TY-147A SQ 140 mm fan

Navigate to: Unboxing and Overview Performance Testing Conclusion Introduction When I first tested the Thermalright TY-147A late last year, I was forced to jig up an adapter to accommodate a round frame 140 mm fan on to a radiator that takes square frame 140 mm fans.
