This review is from: Phanteks PH-F120SP_BK 120 x 120 x 25 mm Case Fan
Pros: Have 15 SP fans in an Enthoo Primo, 10 mounted horizontally on radiators .
Have 8 SP in an Enthoo Luxe, 5 of which are mounted horizontally and another 2 TS which are on a horizontally mounted air cooler.
For both systems, can't tell system is running if ya close ya eyes and that's with side panels off. Fans are controlled via MoBo fan control utilty and never break 850 rpm.
Cons: Newegg doesn't always sell then with the $5 discount coupon code.
Other Thoughts: The ones that come supplied with the cases don't have the anti vibration pads that come in the boxed versions. This causes problem when mounting rads as the pads make them 2mm thicker.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Have an Enthoo Primo as my personal box.... done Enthoo Pro builds and now watched my son do an Enthoo Luxe. Extremely customizable case, unmatched features, love the fan control and LED systems, impecable finish (white). One of the grilles was a bit warped; an email to Phanteks resulted in replacement arriving within 48 hours. What else can ya say ... like it's two siblings by far and away the best cases in their price range.
From anyone else this would be a $199 case
Cons: Thought they wuda fixed this by now:
If you buy additional fans, they don't match the installed fans.
1) When bought separately, the fans include 8 rubber vibration isolators, one on each corner on each side. So in the Luxe, if ya add two fans to the top w/ a 360 rad, one of the fans will be thinner than the other 2 making for a wobbly installation and a screw length concern.
2. The fans bought separately are sleeved, the one in the case aren't.
Other Thoughts: Kinda surprised at the double posted review from anonymous as I have installed over a dozen Phanteks coolers, done build with all of the bigger cases, have 4 of their fan hubs and every time I have contacted tech support, I received replacement parts within 48 hours ... and that's a 3,000 mile trip.
-the grille mentioned above
-the fan vibration isolators also mentioned above (I asked fro 20, they sent 36.
-two door clips damaged in shipping
Pros: The card is going in a user build that I am assembling... most parts arrived a week ago and I have been testing the card in another box for a week.
Best thing I can say about the card is that I can not get the temps above 63C no matter what I throw at it. The fans are extremely quiet and the noise emanating from the system has gone down, not only from the innovative independent fan control but also from lower system fan and PSU fan speeds resulting from reduced power consumption and educes inside case heat.
Getting two of these for $640 and then using the 2nd game coupon for a birthday gift saved me another $60 so two of the buggers for $580 is a steal when they deliver 50% more performance than a 980 for only $30 more.
Cons: There was no buy one get one free offer.
Other Thoughts: They are very easy to disassemble for adding water cooling blocks and customized paint schemes.READ FULL REVIEW
