UFB (Updraft Floating Balance)
- MVB(Maelstrom Vortex Booster)
- The new nine high pressure MVB blades are precisely angled to generate a silent controlled airflow. The blades produces a downdraft vortex allowing for greater amount of air passage through and reduce airflow turbulence across the surface of the blades to create significantly better performance and airflow while keeping noise to a minimum.
- UFB ( Updraft Floating Balance) Bearing
- Composed by MOSS and SSC systems, Phanteks’ UFB bearings have an effective hub-tip ratio to achieve a state of equilibrium reducing air and vibration noise. SSC provides an increase in the bearing’s lifespan and ensures that the fan’s axis is consistently operational and quiet.
- Extension cable
- Phanteks PH-F140SP_BK_BLED comes bundled with a 400mm extension cable to improve cable management, total up to 900mm cable length for big full-tower case or Radiator fan upgrade.
- Acoustic Dampers
- Eight pre-installed rubber pads are now bigger and designed to reduce more vibration.

Quite, move a lot fo air and have LEDs to help with my white build.

Phanteks fans for a Phanteks case, I decided not to think too hard about it. The white LEDS are nice, but their brightness is tied to the fan speeds. For me that's a nice feature, for others possibly not. Two 140's in the front, one 120 in the back, and off I went. I don't have any other fans in order to compare, but I felt that the Teflon rubber in the screw holes was far too stiff, I nearly stripped the screws that came with my Phanteks Eclipse case. and didn't bother tightening them all the way down, so all the fans are floating on their rails.
Phantek's fans include a separate switch for turning the LED's on and off, placed at the end of another wire. I decided to just route them to the cable routing space in the back and zip tie them together. They are bright and pretty, but not so bright that I'd feel the need to turn them off and on on an regular basis.
Supposedly these fans have the best air pressure to noise ratio or something like that, but I wasn't thinking too hard. They are fairly quiet, though, and at the low setting they're inaudible. The high setting is noticeably louder, to the point that I wouldn't ramp them up unless I really needed the airflow. Medium is a good in between, only bothersome when there's nothing else to hear.

The noise is bigger than expected. Did several tests and finally identified they are the major noise source. Very surprised. I reviewed all the connections and tied them hard in the case, still no help. Fortunately, I can set the fan control to DC mode so they are not that bad in low load usage cases.

Quiet and look nice.
