4 out of 5 eggsGreat Air Flow!

Pros: - Packaged very nicely
- Includes 400mm extension cable, 4-to-3 pin adapter, Quiet Speed Adapter (QSA), anti-vibration compensators and screws
- Decent noise levels even at full speed
- Great airflow

Cons: - Anti-vibration compensators end flare not large enough for secure mounting
- Screws very slightly too large or hole/bore too small
- No manual included or online

Other Thoughts: The Phantek PH-F140XP is a great fan. As evidenced by other more in depth reviews its ability to move air is fantastic while maintaining low noise output. The devil is in the details for me and cost one egg.

The anti-vibration compensators were my first mounting option, however either my mounting holes were too broad or the flare at the end too narrow to effectively keep the fan in place. I pushed and pulled on the compensators for a while until I switched to mounting with more traditional Philips head screws.

The screws were unable to be easily mounted on any corner or either side of the fan. After struggling with this briefly I noticed after inserting the screws partway and removing them part of black finish had been scraped off. It was a struggle to use any of the manufacturer provided screws without rounding the heads as a result of the tight fit. I ended up using the screws from my previous fan which had a little more wear and fit very snugly.

Aside from the mounting elements I was somewhat disappointed no physical or electronic instructions were available. This was my first case fan replacement but hardly my first foray into computer building. It may prove more deterrent to those less comfortable.

These issues aside, the fan performance and build quality is strong. The sheathing around the cabling provides extra protection, the contact pads at mounting reduces rattles and vibrations, and the noise level is very low and blends into a quiet background easily.

All-in-all a great purchase for the price and delivered in a nice packaging with more than expected range of adapters for what you pay for it. The best test for this fan has yet to come for me, wear on the bearing over time. As any issues occur I will update this review but given its strong history I don’t expect to be doing so for a long time.

5 out of 5 eggsPremium quality, looks, and price

Pros: - Looks great
- Very quiet
- PWM control (20 - 100% speed in ASUS Fan Xpert 2)
- Moves tons of air
- All cables are sleeved

Cons: - $16-20 is still a lot to pay for just one fan

Other Thoughts: This is a great alternative if you think Noctua fans are too ugly.

5 out of 5 eggs$17 is too much

Pros: I use these fans, not as good as noctua but not nearly bad enough to warrant paying extra for noctua/

I bought 3 of these for $10 each on sale. Thats is the price they should sell for. At $17 you should just pay a little more for noctua.

They blow a good amount of air without making a lot of noise. You can actually feel the air moving without hearing the noise. Most fans cant do that.

Cons: Sometimes makes a little bearing noise if mounted funny. No big deal.

Other Thoughts: Phanteks makes good stuff, just think that $17+ is too much for these fans. $15 would be fair, but they do go on sale for $10 at times.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet Power

Pros: Extremely quiet and moves a good amount of air. I can't hear it unless it spins over 70%, but all I hear is air movement. They are very dense and seem to be of very high quality.

Cons: The rubber feet make it a little thicker than other fans.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat fan

Pros: Moves a TON of air
Very sturdy fan
Comes with multiple connectors
Case is much cooler using this as a front intake (-7C ambient -3 CPU)

Cons: Noisy, if you expect silence, look elsewhere, or get a fan controller
Rubber mounting "tabs" are difficult to use in a tight space, I didnt use them on this fan but on a top mounted fan that was vibrating my case, they work great but require a bit of force to pull through the fan. I ended up breaking one but the other 3 did the job very well with 1 screw

Other Thoughts: very pleased overall. -1 egg for the rubber mount annoyance and the noise. but the fan sound is more a a deep whirrr sound from pushing so much air against my hdd cage. I will update after I install my fan controller this evening.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality Fans Rivaling Noctua

Pros: Quality Construction, Truly Useful Accessories, Move Lots Of Air, Quiet!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My first thought was to go with a pair of Noctuas, but I bought two of these after about a week of research. I attached them in push/pull config to a Corsair H90. I had recently upgraded to an i7-4790K from an i5-4760(non-K) and wanted to water cool because I expect to OC at some point after the 4790 is burned in. I've had the H90 installed in my system for 9 months now and The highest temp recorded at load while playing playing any game on High or Ultra settings is 56C. I don't even hear the fans except as a whoosh of air when my CPU's are cranking. What's doubly impressive is that they exhaust the hot air produced by my GPU out of the case at the same time as cooling the H90's radiator. As an added bonus they are the closest match aesthetically to the Fractal Design 140MM exhaust fan that came with my Node 304 case. You won't go wrong with these.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fans, Great price!

Pros: Nice color scheme
Braided cables
Amazing dBA to CFM ratio
PWM
Crazy amount of accessories
Unique Anti-vibration "screws" included
Great value

Cons: Odd assortment of included screws (May or may not affect you.)

Other Thoughts: Ordered these to replace the two AF140L fans that were included as front intake fans in a Corsair 760T.

Upon opening the box, I realized these fans had incredible packaging. I've never used a Phantek before, but immediately I knew these fans screamed quality. Opening the box revealed a TON of accessories, and like the fan itself, everything had a nice braided cable (granted it is a rubbery-feeling type instead of the traditional cloth style, which means it bends slightly different, yet is still great.)

As I went to install the fans, I noticed the fans include some very small phillips head screws, and a white rubber "screw" which is supposed to cut back on possible vibration noise. Because the small screws and my AF140Ls screws wouldn't fit, I opted to try the new rubber ones, and to my surprise they hold up pretty good. My fans seem to be securely in place, and I didn't need a screwdriver. Although if you had ideas of hanging these fans from the top of a case, I don't think I would trust the rubber screws, I'd use the traditional screws instead.

As for performance, even when running at maximum RPM they stay quiet, in my scenario at ~800 RPM or so these fans are silent, I need to put my ear next to them to hear them. When I used to run the AF140Ls in my case, aside from the noise & clicking, my motherboard would hover around 38°C. With the Phanteks, not only is my PC running quieter, with the improved airflow my motherboard is running at 31°C, a 7°C/13°F drop. Impressive.

If you're looking for a PWM fan that has a balance of CFM to noise ratio, Phantek made an incredible contender. Noctua makes a great alternative to these, but I couldn't justify spending so much more money on fans that might have been slightly better, and (in my opinion) the ugliest fans on the market, which I would end up spending more money for paint to get the same exact look the Phanteks had in the first place.

5 out of 5 eggsPhantek 140mm PWM Fan

Pros: high quality 140mm for <$20.
white blades (matches system theme).
very quiet. at full power just makes a low, deep, "whoosh". still barely audible over other components.
moves quite a bit of air. noticeably more air pouring out of the back now vs the Corsair fan it replaced at same speeds.

Cons: ~$20. still haven't found a fan yet that really seems to me worth more than $10-12.

Other Thoughts: there are lots of "cheap" fans floating around and some get some awesome reviews around the web. i just don't want to be doing trial-and-error through multiples so i try to go with a known quality brand at a medium range price.
this one is a good choice.
