The SilverStone Shark Force 140 ARGB is a high airflow fan, featuring special design “shark force” fan blades, for lower noise. It uses a flud dynamic bearing for a longer lifetime and lower noise output, and it is also equipped with ARGB lighting, to satisfy users that like colorful products!
Like its smaller sibling, the SilverStone Shark Force 140 ARGB has blades uniquely designed and inspired by the hydrodynamic properties of a shark fin. This is why they called this fan with that name! The fan promises high airflow and static pressure without increased noise thanks to its special blades. This wasn’t the case for the 120mm model, so I am skeptical already if it will be true for the 140mm one.
According to the official specs, the fan can deliver up to 120 CFM airflow and 4.00 mmAq of static pressure. Remember, you need high airflow for chassis use, while you mostly care about static pressure for cooling solutions. This fan is also fully modular, having two headers on its frame, one for the power connection and one for the ARGB lighting. It utilizes a three-phase, six-pole motor, which provides more torque than single-phase, four-pole design motors. The fan rotates through a fluid dynamic bearing, ideal for normal operating temperatures, providing reliability and low noise output.
It is weird that at the time of the review, at least, the non-ARGB Shark Force 140mm is more expensive than the ARGB version! And if you think that this is crazy, I have something better. The Shark Force 160 has the same price as the Shark Force 140!
