Phanteks T30-120, a new King is rising

Post by Abula » Thu Aug 12, 2021 8:29 am

A new fan was just released from Phantek, the T30-120 official webpage, promotional video Phanteks T30 - The Ultimate Performance Fan

Available on Amazon: Phanteks (PH-F120T30_BG) T30-120 Fan, Premium high-Performance Fan, PWM, Black/Grey $29.99

Seems another clone on the Gentle Typhon, that adds to the list, Noctua NF-A12x25, Thermaltake ToughFan 12, Scythe Wonder Snail, DarkSide Gentle Typhoon, etc. The spin that Phantek gave it was 5mm extra on width and using levitation bearing.

I order one to see the PWM curves, ill post them when i get it.

I'll try to update this post with reviews,

Seems awesome and quite innovative fan, so hope igor'slab or hardwareluxx will test it with their more serious methodologies. Performace wise some part of it's domination is increased thickness as it means more airflow and static pressure.

I generally really like that Noctua starts to get their ass seriously kicked by rivals. First Scythe with Wonder Snails to give you black A12x25 sooner and cheaper, but still great quality (btw earlier their coolers killing everything excect of D15, but let's wait for ones with WS), now Phanteks with their fan. Austrian guys need to increase the speed of their progress and maybe focus more exactly on it instead of working few years on black paint for their fans, passive cooler or damn desk fan :]

Thanks!

I wonder how they are dealing with master/slave for sensor when daisy-chained?

I wonder if they can be run low enough to be quiet, also i noise signature seems not as nice as other options. But def good to see more new options!

Good review, seems to quieter than the noctua at same rpm, but moves less air at low rpm compared to the noctua.

From the audio clips it doesnt sound as nice however, but that cant be 100% representative.

Adding the Bitwit video, while not a pure T30 review, its one of the fans he tests and practically wins all the tests. Sadly he didnt had a NF-A12x25, which imo should preform very close.

Your video led me to this one by Major Hardware. He includes the Gentle Typhoon and the NF-A12x25.
