This review is from: Phanteks PH-F140MP 140 mm PWM, High Static Pressure Radiator Fan
Pros: I did see a review where the author concluded that these were sleeve bearings but according to Phanteks engineering department, they are actually equipped with a modified rifle bearing. I have over 30 of them, (16) on my personal box, (10) of which are on rads. One had a bit of a wobble, I sent it back and rec'd 2 back in exchange for my troubles.
Cons: Newegg specials where ya can get them for $10 are now few and far between.
Inlcuding the SP versions in the discussion, the ones that come with Phanteks cases from factory do not have sleeved wires, or the rubber vibration isoltaors
This review is from: Phanteks PH-F140SP_BK 140mm Case Fan
Pros: Kemp.... they are case fans, they are supposed to be 8mm long, you don-t screw them in from the fan side, you screw them in from the case side.... that gives you about 7mm embedment in the fan housing. The 1mm case is not of sufficient thickness to hold any screw threads. If used on a radiator as in two of my builds, you use the radiator screws not the fan screws.
Dan ... with MoBos having 6 or more headers there's says, not much call for a fan controller. I have (15) of these fans in a Primo, (9) in a Luxe, and (5) in a Pro .... plus numerous other builds. I had one that vibrated and Phanteks sent 2 to replace for the inconvenience. All of them are speed controlled from about 325 rpm to 1250 rpm w/ no issues.

Pros: Austin..... no Z97 board has SLI capability with anything plugged into the 3rd PCI slot....except for the very rare few that have PEX chip. This is true for ever brand out there.
Cons: Like every other Z97 board (w/o PEX) , it only offers 16 PCI lanes.....each card in SLI uses 8 lanes.READ FULL REVIEW
