Phanteks PH-F140SP_BK 140mm Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs A well balanced fan 02/24/2015

This review is from: Phanteks PH-F140SP_BK 140mm Case Fan

Pros: Black and white.
Lots of air (and pressure) for the noise.
Excellent performance for the price.

Cons: Wish they included rubber mounts.
Wish they'd tell us exactly what an "Updraft Floating Balance" bearing is.

Other Thoughts: Inaudible at <800 RPM, while still moving a decent amount of air (with decent pressure as well). They offer some of the best noise/air and price/performance ratios of fans and I've ever used (Noctua, Fractal Design, Dell stock).

Phanteks PH-F140SP_BK 140mm Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs They really move air 02/24/2015

This review is from: Phanteks PH-F140SP_BK 140mm Case Fan

Pros: Moves air with a surprising amount of force (see below).
Padded corners (see below).
Sleeved cables.
Sturdy construction.
Runs quietly at low to medium RPM, and noticeably but inoffensively at high RPM.

Cons: None...

Other Thoughts: These are fantastic fans. I purchased a pair to augment the stock configuration of my Fractal Design Define R5, and they did their job beautifully, but there were a few complications along the way.

At first, I put one of the fans in the rear as an exhaust, and one in between my HDD cage and my PSU as a bottom intake. However, in the bottom intake position, the fan would intake air with enough force to pull up on the air filter (the filter is ever so slightly bowed away from the bottom of the case). At certain RPMs, this affect would vibrate the filter.

The vibration resulted in me swapping the locations of my 2 Phanteks fans with the stock fans. The stock fans are held in the front with pass through screws, which are just a tad too short. Though this fan is the standard 25mm thick, the padded corners add a millimeter or 2 of thickness, which meant my screws weren't long enough. So I had to take the pads off. They're easy enough to press fit into their notches if I ever need them again.

All in all excellent fans. Not bad for $10 each.

Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Saved by their support 01/30/2015

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: Fantastic stock fans.
Fantastic mounting system.
Fantastic packaging.
Beautiful finish.
Excellent technical support (more on that later).

Cons: It's big (but you knew this).
It's heavy (and you expected this).
It interferes with tall heatspreaders (so you bought low profile RAM).

Other Thoughts: So every so often, manufacturing makes a mistake. In my case, their mistake was that they drilled one of the holes crooked on the mounting bracket. This means that I could not mount my cooler. Bummer right?

I called their technical support to explain my situation, and my call was picked up by a person. After a brief chat, I was directed to fill out a support request on their website, and that if I filled it out, and sent in my proof of purchase within the next hour, Phanteks could have my replacement pieces shipped out by the end of the day. So I filled it out, called customer service again (got the same service rep), emailed them my invoice, and within a 2 business days, I had my replacement part. It fit, and the cooler is performing fantastically.

However, if Phanteks reads these reviews, there is a comment that I must make: You made a mistake with your packaging. You sent 2 solid steel brackets with post on them in a thin cardboard envelope. In shipping, they must have gotten caught on the processing equipment. The brackets tore through and shredded the cardboard envelope. When they got to me, the envelope they were original shipped in was in tatters, and one of the 2 brackets had gone missing. Luckily I only needed 1, but when you're shipping parts that can catch on things, please pack them in such a way that they won't get caught.

P.S. the bracket that I did receive was still in perfectly functional condition, which goes to show just how sturdy their steel is.
