Finally, a 140mm x 38mm thick fan!! The SilverStone FHP141 - Page 15

post #141 of 150
Her case is a no name she picked up in a computer show in 2003 because it has a solid acrylic front with flowery patterns and lots of lights in it. It has terrible air flow but looks neat. She uses that computer for dealing with certain web sites that only respond to particular programs so does not need a lot of power.

I would like to hear back from xenolith about how he is getting along with his new fans.

Just to follow up. I got my fans from Newegg today. They're version 2. Sorry for the poor quality pics from my cell phone.




I took the sticker off the hub to see what the wiring and solder joints looked like.




A closer look of the Q-P switch and wiring.




Here's the accessories that came with my fans. I'm curious as to why they didn't include the four screws that attach the adaptors. No big deal. I had a bunch of hard drive screws doing nothing and they fit perfectly.




Here are some screenshots of Hardware Monitor showing the fan with the switch set to P and then set to Q.



Here's a video I found by someone showing how loud the fan is on performance mode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuH-sSgSEdc

I'm happy with the fan. At ~2000 rpm, it moves a ton of air and isn't too loud for me. Now it's on to installing them on my H110 watercooler.

Nice to see your pics. I wonder if all the fans newegg sells are version 2.0 now. The fan adapters appear very usefull for the 140mm radiator crowd, especially with the ek vardars on recall for a while.

I just bought 4 of these from performance pc. Not very happy 2 of the 4 fans are stuck at 500 rpms which is a known issue. Fans were pretty expensive at $17 a piece you would think that they would at least work the right way. I mean the 2 that work sound great and move a ton of air but I have to wonder how long they will work before they suffer the same issue. I mean i guess i can ship them back but by the time that is all said and done i will have paid shipping almost amounting to both of the broken fans. should have spent a couple more $ to get some more Noctua's.

I know you are not the only one who has had a problem. Sure some people have had a few problems with FHP141 fans, and some of these have been at 500rpm, but people have problems with all fans. I googled and found 1 or 2 other reports of this problem .. hardly a 'known issue' as compared to a bunch of bad bearing issues, or the manyharmonic noise problems reported on several others. Only a couple people saying they had same basic problem does not make it a 'known issue' in my book. By your logic all fans have 'known issues'. tongue.gif

You must not have searched very well or read reviews at various places. regardless given my set sample im looking at a 50% failure rate, Ive owned very cheap fans and have owned very expensive fans, sure some were loud some were good but at least they all actually worked, 500 rpms is pretty useless for a fan. Also i forgot to mention that all 4 fans were supposed to come with the corner adapters as stated and vibration mounts and none of them had it. I had to buy adapters to make them work only to find out 2 out of 4 were useless. I mean the whole thing just seems crazy. I might come across as angry or irritable but this is really unacceptable.

I mean probably the biggest mistake was not buying from Amazon for these. Performance pc has the best prices anywhere and they cant be beat, but their return policies and procedures are a bit lacking. Amazon would have paid for my return

The FHP141 is not the first or only fan with such switch. Thermaltake made in the past several "VR" fans with little integrated switches on the fans (not exactly the same, but similar enough I say). Antect I think came up with a few too. They do sometimes fail, eventually. If anything, it's another point of failure in the fan that a user will have to keep in mind.

If I did such a poor job of searching, could you possible supply them as well as the 'reviews at various places'?

Do you have any idea what the manufacture date is on those fans? It sounds like you got a batch of old fans and not the newer ones. IRRC there was a time frame where those fans did have problems. The two I have are fine but they are the earlier batch that did not have the switch problems. Then there was a time when they had problems, and as far as I know the recent ones are ok. The fact that they did not come with 140mm adapters is a clue.
