I just received my Phanteks fan today that was on sale for $13.59 at Amazon. I am refurbing a i5-4670K based machine with an Evo and was looking for a cheap upgrade so I chose this fan. Price and it met my specs. Oversized 140mm fan with 120mm mounting holes PWM powered for normal use on high end air coolers. I used an even larger Noctua AF-15A with great success on a Phenom II X4 build with an older Hyper 212+ heat sink. That was an open box on Amazon and $14.50. I have used Phanteks fans as a cheaper as good replacement for Noctua's in the Phenom build so I hopped on this when I caught it on sale.
So far under OCCT it is 10 degrees cooler. Going to try for higher overclocks now.
