Sneak peek!

@ Scorpion49, it looks like the back panel bent in the area between I/O opening and PCI slot causing top of PCI slots to be farther back the they are supposed to be. I'm guessing the miss-alignment got bigger the closer the PCI slot was to CPU? As cases are packed in box with back down I can understand how dropping could cause that kind of bend/bowing damage.

One last question, are the stock ones good for using on radiators (SP)? I'm finally about to order everything for my loop and wasn't sure if I should harvest 3 of the stock fans for the 420 rad, or buy more Corsair SP's or buy another brand like Noiseblocker, etc. But if the PH-F140SP is just as good on radiators and just as quiet, etc as the stock ones, then I'll probably get some of those.

The on;y difference is the one I referred to. Ay the corners there's these little indentations. On the case fans they empty, in the retail boxes, they have "peel and stick" pads for vibration isolation. That's the only difference hat i have observed.

The 140 SP is an oustanding fan.... it outperformed every other fan tested ay spcr. Specs are on their web site

It often feels like Phanteks can do no wrong. Time after time, they deliver products that are either clearly top of their class, or merely arguably the top of their class. The new breed of fans, the 140XP and SP, do nothing to change that. Construction and performance are spot on, while noise to air movement is excellent. I have been fortunate enough to have been using seven of these in a build for the last month, and time has done nothing but make me like them more.

As case fans, the 140SP and 140XP are very controlled, and able to move excellent amounts of air through the case. This would be expected given the specs, but what is not expected is how quietly they manage to do this. First off, there is no discernible mechanical noise from either iteration of the fan. The bearing is dead silent, and there is no ticking, buzz or hum often associated with PWM present in the 140XP. The other factor is the actual pitch of the fan, which is lower than most 140mm fans we have encountered. There is no whine or high pitches of any kind. This makes the 140SP and XP far less intrusive even at higher speeds. At lower speeds, the air movement is substantial, but even in the front intake position there is no real discernible noise until ~850rpm, and they never become distracting when pushed beyond that.

While the fans are essentially the same with PWM added to the F140XP, that also adds some perks. The PWM control allows the F140XP to be run all the way down to 300rpm for absolute silence. The lower speeds also allow the static pressure to increase ~15%, making them an excellent choice for 140mm factor radiators. The 140SP serves very, very well on radiators also with good static pressure and low noise.

Phanteks has done well with their new 140mm fans, and have even included a blue LED version to the lineup. Performance is excellent, and really takes a back seat to no other 140mm fan. The F140SP and XP have excellent build quality, nice cabling with black sleeving to the ends and include extension cables with the same. The PWM F140XP also includes low noise adapters as a bonus. With a price point in the middle of the pack of 140mm fans, there is no doubt that the F140SP and F140XP represent an incredible value and are very deserving of Hi Tech Legion’s Editor’s Choice Award.

The Phanteks PH-F140HP/TS is the clear winner in every respect. It edged out the new Noctuas every step of the way, delivering the best overall results of any fan we've tested thus far. To top it off, it had cleanest, smoothest sound of all the new fans in this roundup. If we had to start from scratch, this might be our new reference model.

I see no reason to even think about another fan unless you want high speed but thatz a place I'm not interested in going.

I did get an e-mail from Noiseblocker indicating that they have new 140mm fans in development....wouldn't talk about timing tho.

It was an easy fix, just grab both edges and pull.

Phanteks PH-F140TS/HP are very good.. thumb.gif I'm hearing claims of PH-F140HP being PWM but the three I own have 3pin fan plugs and 3 wires into fan motor. redface.gif
.
I assume the PH-F140SP is as good.
PH-F140XP is PWM version.

Same fan, different colors and frame shape.

Yup...has more SP / flow too.....1.52 versus 1.33 as i recall ... also 85 CFM versus 82 CFM

Well, I sure hope my latest round of parts ordered for this build isn't going to arrived damaged.
It was supposed to be delivered on the 14th. I've sure never seen a reason like this for a delay before ...

post #1338 of 18690
I think I will use the phanteks on the 420 rad in the case. A nice cost save instead of buying 6 different fans. You made a strong case for their use. Has there been any testing on performance with rads?
post #1339 of 18690
And we're done!!!!!
What do you guys think? Its my 1st time water cooling btw, but I hope i've done a good job
FYI there is a 420 XT45, a 280 monsta and a 240 XT 45 stuffed in there






I'd just like to say big thanks to everyone here, especially @jassilamba for providing measurements and giving advice/answers to all my questions
Thanks to you all the gear I had bought and the route I had planned fitted perfectly!
I have a whole load of photos from the build that I'm thinking of doing a build log for over on the zoo, just so people like me who are new to watercolling can see that its not that hard if you plan carefully

The SPCR testing was done on air coolers in which the fin spacing is far tighter then on rads....if it does well there, don't see why it wouldn't in Rads.
