I bought two Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 140mm (15mm thin) fans after discovering I couldn't get my 5.25" BluRay player to fit beneath the existing 25mm thick Noctua NF-A14 fan that sat in the top of my case.
The Prolimatechs are connected to a 4-pin PWM port by a Silverstone splitter cable - and are sited alongside one another in the bracket at the top of the Fractal Core 500 case to draw in external cool air.
I was worried the significant reduction in circulatory air space might have a hazardous effect on thermals. The advantage of these fans being a FULL CENTIMETRE SLIMMER than the Noctua has meant I've been able to install an additional one directly above my Noctua D-15S cooler stack. These slimmer Prolimatech fans run silently or incredibly quietly yet amazingly shift a bigger air volume than even the thicker Noctua - Better still my temperatures don't appear to have altered too detrimentally (generally between 23-33 degrees at rest)
