Pros: this card is really great card it can run most games max settings avg 40-70fps @1080p I haven't had any cooling issues it never gets hotter then 75c. I have in in a fractal design r4 with fans are quite even gaming there not to loud. mining: this card does some amazing hash rates aswell I picked up this card when they were $180 and dollar for dollar hash better then my 290. I get 477khs and have been runing that for over a month now with no issues.
Cons: i cant think of any cons for this card it really does a great job for a budget gamer/miner
Other Thoughts: mining settings
This review is from: Phanteks PH-F140HP PH-F140HP_BK 140mm CPU Cooler Fan
Pros: they move a lot more air then the fractal r2 fans that come in the define r4. I believe 1 of my r2 fans is bad seeing as its way louder then any other fan in my case which is downer seeing as the case is less then a month old. they are fairly quite at full speed and barely audible @ 1000 rpm and down. they look good and match the rest of the style of the case.
Cons: not as much hardware included as with noctua fans ( just a bag of screws as another mentioned) , cables are a little short luckily i had some extensions left over from my noctua's,
Other Thoughts: I bought these with there 20% off sale they had going on, picking 3 of em up for under $40. I'm not sure whey they boosted the price to $20 as even on phanteks website they are still $14.99. I know they are pwn fans and not case fans but I like buying things that can be used as needed later on and i can't use a case fan as a rad fan. the 120mm mounting holes are a strange design but actually worked out great for fitting them in smaller places then typical 140 could mount, also i can re-purpose them later and mount them to my h100i if i wanted to, I'd like to see if there were any difference compared to the 120mm noctuas. all in all there great fans and I'll most likely be buying some more as I upgrade some things.READ FULL REVIEW
