The Phanteks T30 fan gained popularity in its initial debut due to its impressive performance and left a lasting impact on players. The new M25 fan is an improvement over the T30, featuring higher airflow and pressure, as well as a shorter wire design for better performance and easier installation.

The Phanteks M25 fan is newly launched and comes in two sizes, 120mm, and 140mm, with a black color option. There are also two color choices, white and black, including a matte black version. The M25 series offers more versatility in terms of installation and color matching. The M25 fans can directly replace the original SK fans in Phanteks’ DRGB case, providing improved airflow performance to players who purchase the updated case.
The M25 fan comes in 120mm size with a maximum speed of 2000 RPM, capable of delivering 84.26 CFM air flow and 2.67 mm-H2O wind pressure. The 140mm size fan has a slower maximum speed of 1800 RPM but boasts a higher airflow of 104.62 CFM and 2.80 mm-H2O wind pressure. Both sizes have impressive specifications and overall performance.
I recently acquired a 140mm white M25 fan. It features a 9-blade design and is constructed with white light-guiding material. The center of the fan blade lacks a logo nameplate, offering a seamless circular light display when in operation. The fan blade shape and frame have been optimized, taking cues from the T30 fan, to reduce noise during operation.
The fan frame is surrounded by rubber pads, providing a cushioned installation, and its shape is a continuation of the T30 fan design.
The fan comes with a 14cm 4-Pin PWM cable that can be daisy-chained and two 50cm extension cables. It also has a 300mm D-RGB 3-pin daisy chain cable for lighting. As most motherboards now have a (4-1) Pin design, a D-RGB 3-pin to (4-1) Pin cable is included in the package to allow players to connect the fan to their motherboard and control lighting effects through software.
In terms of lighting effects, the M25 fan features an enlarged motor and FDB hydraulic bearing, resulting in a larger circular area in the center. Although there is no logo nameplate in the center of the fan blade, the larger central area still exhibits reduced brightness.
M25 Fan Summary
The recently launched M25 fan by Phanteks inherits the high quality of the T30 fan. Although it may not have the top-tier performance or multiple modes of the T30, the M25 offers a well-tuned balance of performance to meet the needs of gamers. Whether used as a chassis intake or exhaust or as a radiator fan, it is capable of handling various scenarios.
The lighting part comes with a DRGB 3-Pin connector, but an adapter cable for (4-1)-Pin is included for compatibility with other lighting hardware like the motherboard. However, having short wires like the 4-Pin PWM daisy chain cable for the DRGB 3-Pin daisy chain cable would make installation easier.
In conclusion, it’s important to note that Phanteks’ new cases such as the Eclipse G500A and Eclipse G360A come with the M25 fan. If you’re not looking for extreme performance, the M25 fan is a good choice with a balanced price-to-performance ratio and can be used in a variety of situations.
