Hello... I've searched and can't seem to find good information. I'd like to replace the fan on my Scythe Big Shurikan ver. B with a 15mm thick fan. Can someone point me in the right direction or recommend a high static pressure fan. The Silverstone FN123 seems like a good choice but I haven't seen any real testing. thanks in advance.

Noctua NF A-12x15 PWM would be a good choice.

I'm sure they are good... just not a fan of brown. Thank you for the suggestion.

That's too often the problem: you can get something in Noctua brown or can get an inferior product in a different color.

I am using a Prolimatech PRO-USV14 140mm Ultra Sleek Vortex Fan on my Big Shuriken 2, it is 140mm but has 120mm mounting holes. Temps are 3-4C better than the stock fan and it is incredibly quiet.

Q1 2019 came and went and still no black version is available to my knowledge. What was the source of your info, if I may ask?
that information was from a noctua representative replying to an email or twitter inquiry. i think i saw it on reddit.

The noctua is easily the best, I actually own the majority of slim fans. The Silverstone ones aren't actually too bad, a bit louder and slightly lower performance but an easy second or third place.

Do you have the Aeolus Beta?
