gpus with crosfire ..so yeah its 50/50

My z87-g45 has 3 way crossfire, 2 way sli. Using the bottom slot won't allow me to run SLI between two cards, have to go with the slot above where it's closer to the 1st gpu. So at least have somewhat of an awareness in regards to that.

Ended up nabbing the PWM version last friday off amazon for $85 and the day after it was delivered I got an email from newegg for a bunch of discount codes cause of a precious purchase so i asked amazon to price match and said if they didn't I'd probably return it. They ended up refunding me $27 cause the price I would have payed from newegg was $59. Couldn't be happier.

so question i grabbed this off amazon a week or so ago and though I had gotten the 2nd gen PWM version with the 4 pin fans but when i opened it they had the 3 pin fans inside ]: obviously it comes with the splitter and connector and what not but if I plan on using 4 pin PWM fans for the rest of my case would it be advisable to upgrade these two, contact phanteks see if they'll swap them out or something biggrin.gif ?

What is the exact model? For example, the one I have sandwiched in between my 2 stock fans is a PH-F140XP_BK, the PWM version. The PH-F140SP_BK, is the 3 pin model that isn't PWM controlled.

both versions will perform similar..the newer ones are 4pin pwm..newer hub design and they changed the blades notches for less noise.
look on hightechlegion on youtube..they did a small comparison.
having identical fans in all ereas does have a better esthetic apeal and smtimes yields overall better perf..example..gentle typhoons ..sp120's..cougars..enermax..noctuas..and so forth..it doesnt always matter.but i do think having a setup with identical fans would have better consistent results..
any 1 else care to elaborate

It's worth a try. It's too bad the used the same model number for both the 3-pin and 4-pin versions of PH-F140HP fans.

The 14PE orignally came with PH-F140TS, than changed to PH-F14oHP 3-pin fans with PWM adapter, and now comes with PH-F140HP 4-pin PWM.

Noctua's NF-A15 has 2 versions, a 1500rpm one that comes with NH-U14S (& new NH-D15) while the NH-A15 they sell is that's 1200rpm. I only found this out when I contacted them about it.

I got the PH-TC14PE_BK but both the fans that came with it were 3 pin so yea. They're literally the exact same as the PH-F140HP_BK(4 pin) but the ones that came with mine are 3 pin. I dont understand how people still have stock of the 1st gen fans but w/e

PH-F140HP all look identical. Only obvious differences is 3-pin voltage controlled speed or 4-pin PWM controlled speed.

Running the 3-pin version on adapter with real PWM fans results in the 3-pin fans do not spin the same rpin and PWM fans, even if the same PWM range is specified.

Just looked at Amazon.com and only one listed says

Phanteks CPU Cooler with 5 x 8mm Dual Heat-pipes, 140mm Premium Fans and PWM Adaptor, Patented P.A.T.S Coating, PH-TC14PE_BK (Black)

Still worth a try to contact Phanteks and see if they will upgrade them for you. If not TY-147 fans look bad on black 14PE. I have them on mine. Don't have a pic of it but here's one with TY-143 fans


Here is a combo of TY-140 and TY-147 fans on red 14PE

yea i mean i feel i guess if im gonna spend over 1k on a build might as well make sure im getting optimal performance from the fans. I'll hit up phanteks on monday and then if they politely tell me to **** off ill just end up replacing the stock ones with w/e ones i buy for the case as well
