This review is from: Phanteks PH-F140SP_BK 140mm Case Fan
Pros: static pressure optimized
good for air or radiator cooling
Cons: not pwm, BUT are pwm controlled in my Enthoo Primo
Other Thoughts: Ordered 2 more of these for my new Phanteks Enthoo Primo for a total of 7. 5 cooling a 420mm/280mm rad, 2 led in front.
Fans idle at 530rpm and max out at 750rpm.
Cool and quiet operation.
Pros: lots of radiator mounting options
rear mount PSU
5 140mm static pressure fans included
pwm fan controller for non pwm fans
smaller than the 900D
Cons: I would prefer a non-tinted window.
Case Led control is only blue color.
Pump mount bracket holes don't fit the Alphacool VPP655 pump
Other Thoughts: Building a full custom loop in this case was very enjoyable.
Plenty of room in front and back for tube routing, pump/radiator mounting and cable management.
I installed Alphacool XT45 420mm rad in the top, XT45 280mm in the bottom cooling an overclocked 4670k/780Ti.
The case is also good for air cooling, having plenty of intake and exhaust fan mounting options.
I really like the PSU rear mounting option. Cleans up the aesthetics of the build and allows more options for tubing and rad mounting.
All fan dust filters are easily accessible.
One possible problem in the future would be if GPUs get longer than a Titan or 780/Ti. As it is, there is about a 1mm clearance btwn my 780Ti and Bitspower 250ml res.
The fans included are great for air cooling or radiator cooling.
How awesome is it Phanteks includes 5 SP140s?
I bought 2 additional from Newegg. So I have 3 at the top, 2 at the bottom and 2 in front, all controlled with the pwm fan controller.
The fans idle at 530rpm and max out at 750rpm for very cool and quiet performance.
Max CPU T=65/66C, Max GPU T=45/46C
This is the first full tower case I've bought and I'm very pleased.
Pros: Gold, Haswell ready. Quiet
Cons: Reviewed this before. Have had it about 4 months.
Now I realize it has crazy COIL WHINE
