I have a picture of the issue here: http://www.box.com/s/237622fbb314166f9261
I'm really annoyed right now, wasted several hours of tooling around with my PC and trying to figure out what was messed up.

Bummer. Have you contacted them yet? I'm sure if you send them that pic they'll send a new one ASAP

I tried to RMA but it directed me to a blank page, so I'm not sure if it sent or not.

Anyone know if there's an auto-mail to confirm an RMA?

Less annoyed now -- I know it'll be a great cooler when I've got it working, was just really excited to start playing with it!
That and I spent so long trying to figure it out, sure it must be something I was doing wrong.

When you get one that is made the right way, it might be helpful to know that I had to bend mine slightly to get the screws to line up. They seemed to have overmeasured it slightly.

I'm starting the tests today. I can't wait either. I've just done the Phanteks with a UK-3000 and AP-121. I'm about to test the Phanteks with stock fans. Then I'll hook up the SB-E

Please test Phanteks with 2 ty-140 V.S. Phanteks with ty-141 (audio/performance test) band.gif
post #187 of 2766
With 2 UK-3000s running it's impossible to test the sound coming from any of my fans. I also only have 1 TY-141 so can't test vs TY-140s
post #188 of 2766
OK then, can you test noise/performance with one cooler on Phanteks ty-140 V.S. ty-141 . Turn off all other fans in the computer case and open the side of the case when you test it wink.gif
post #189 of 2766
dude, there is no massive difference, the TY-141 is slightly louder and the performance is pretty much identical.

lol...no I won't be doing that. Apart from anything else, it won't be worth the hassle as both fans perform pretty much the same
