Seems interesting. Anyone use their stuff before? Know if their other stuff works well?

their stuff works well, especially their CPU heatsinks. but honestly they are a bit of a Noctua copycat, which is good because I guess if you're going to copy you might as well copy the best. if you want Noctua quality without the poop-brown colors, you buy from phantek

I have their CPU cooler and it works great. Very quiet and no issues, been using it for almost a year now.

Ha! That's so true. If you want a noctua copycat that has better color choices, then phanteks seems like the best choice. I'd love to buy a noctua, but their color options are awful.

LoL, I have to second that on Noctua, looks okay with my components though I must admit.

The Noctua is an IFX14 copycat with some improvements. The Phanteks TCP-14E (Or something like that) and NH-D14 are very similar and it comes down to color preference :3

The only fans I buy are from Delta Electronic. What's a fan if it can't go to 52 dB?

I bought a Noctua A15 a while ago to replace a Coolermaster 140mm
rear case fan. If these Phanteks fans had been available earlier, I would
have bought one of them instead since the CPU HS is a black Phanteks
PH-TC14PE with 3 white fans. The Noctua works very well, but the colour
is pretty grim.

I was going to say on the other hand that price is a factor aswell, but a
quick Google shows the PH-F140XP being around 15 UKP, which is quite
a lot less than the A15. Definitely a no-brainer IMO, asssuming these
new fans perform as claimed.

It's been a while since we've had a fan review. Tarun, how about a 120/140mm
fan round up?
