Phanteks PH-F140(XP, SP, SP_LED) Fans Testing:

The Phanteks PH-F104s will be tested on a Noctua NH-U14S tower cooler. The tower cooler will be mounted according to the recommended installation method given in the included manual. To elaborate, the Noctua cooler will be mounted vertically near the back of the computer case with a fan between the back wall and the radiator. The fan being tested will be pulling air from outside of the case and pushing it through the radiator. The load tests will be run in two hour intervals with a one hour break in between each load test. Idle tests will be each run 45 minutes and have 15 minute breaks in between. All system hardware will remain the same during each of the tests and the ambient temperature will be kept as close to 17 degrees Celsius as possible for all tests to be fair. The fans will all be tested at all of their speed settings.

Based on the specifications given by Phanteks, the fans seemed to be just as awesome as they were said to be. The idles and the loads both were very impressive across the board and all @4.4Ghz. Even with the XP using the QSA adapter the temperatures were all so far down I wouldn't even be afraid to up the voltage and the clock speed for a faster overclock. Oddly enough, the XP actually performed worse than its brethren at the 1200 rpm speeds and was still defeated ever so slightly by the Noctua at its 1500 rpm setting (which is faster and a bit louder than the Phanteks XP). I think a slightly faster PWM range would have easily matched the slightly more brutish Noctua. All of the Phanteks handled this overclock without breaking a sweat.
