3 out of 5 eggsOverall, a great cooler

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: This cooler is overall a great cooler. I'm running an i7 4790k overclocked to 4.7Ghz and it maxes temps while gaming in the mid 50Cs. Has absolutely no problem keeping up. Stress testing the CPU with dedicated stress programs gets it up to around 85C. Probably the most effective air cooler I've used.

Cons: There are only two cons. First, this thing is massive. It's not that big of a con, because it is part of the performance. Just make sure you have a case it will fit in. I have a Thermaltake Core v51 and there is maybe an inch between the cooler and the side of the case. The second con, and reason why I knocked two eggs off, is because the bracket that mounts the cooler to the top of the CPU did not fit onto the actual cooler without some filing down. For someone with no filing tools, this cooler would have been unusable. With today's manufacturing practices, a problem like this should not happen. Once, filed down, this thing works like a champ. Would give 5 eggs if I didn't need to file it down.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great cooler. Would buy again. The fitting problem may have just been me; a cheap file would work fine from a local store or something.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great, needs better QC

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: The cooler performs flawlessly. OC'd an I5-2500k to 4.5GHz using a Cooler Master 212+ single fan and hit 95°C, Then installed the PH-TC14PE and the temp never went past 71°C at low fan speeds. This cooler definitely performs and lives up to all the reviews I have read. Also comes with PWM fans now.

Cons: One of the things I have noticed is the mounting plate that goes across the top of the heat-sink base. Often the spring screws are installed on the plate backwards. To fix this, You remove the E-clip that holds the screw to the plate and install the screw on the opposite side of the plate. My cooler was shipped with the spring screws installed on the wrong side. After fixing this issue, I have had no issues installing this massive cooler.

The Second issue is if you have any ram with heat-spreaders taller than 40mm, Unless you have a wide case, Then this cooler most likely wont fit. One of the 140mm fans sits right over top of the memory slots closest to the CPU socket. I use an Antec 300 case and this thing is so large that I can barely close the side door of the case with G.skill Ripjaw X memory sticks.

Other Thoughts: Phanteks needs to QC the product better or the people assembling the product.

Can be an awesome cooler if everything is set up properly. just check the mounting plate and your case width.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler, but not without initial problems

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: VERY large cooler. Does an incredible job of keeping my CPU cool. It may be a little louder than some high end noctua coolers but it cools just as well and you can't beat it at this price.

Cons: When I received the cooler there was an adhesive sticker on the CPU block (like you find on the hyper 212 evo). This didn't seem like a problem until I peeled back the sticker only to find that the sticker had left behind many splotches of dried glue meaning I had to spend over half an hour cleaning the CPU block and getting off the glue the sticker left behind. This behavior could have been due to a bunch of things like temperature of the CPU block when I removed the sticker and this doesn't seem like it is Phanteks fault, so it isn't worth taking off a egg for that.

Other Thoughts: I ordered this cooler for my intel x99 system build. I was able to get my CPU to 4.5GHz 1.3v at around 75-80C. This is a great cooler if you don't have the money for a water cooler, but have a plenty wide case to install this cooler. I am surprised that this cooler isn't as recognized my many other big review sites, as it performs great for a very competitive price.

5 out of 5 eggsBest budget cooler for haswell-e

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: I decided to upgrade to intel x99, meaning I had to buy either a decent water cooler or a giant air cooler. I didn't have the money to buy anything like the noctua nh-d15, so I compromised on this cooler.
I managed to get my i7-5820k to 4.5GHz (your mileage may very). Temps hovered in the low 70s at 1.28v. It performs great (it beats the H100i according to many other websites) all while eliminating an annoying pump noise. Yes this cooler may be a little bit louder than the nh-d15, but you can use the money you saved by buying this cooler and purchasing a couple of noctua fans to strap to this cooler.

Cons: the thine is SO HUGE (but I should've expected this). It fits just fine in my fractal define R5, but just check for compatibility before buying.

Other Thoughts: A great cooler for the price. Not as well known like the H100i or the NH-D15, but performs just as well.

5 out of 5 eggsHUGE

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: -Extremely quiet
-Comes with everything you need for several different sockets
-Keeps things frosty

Cons: Ginormous

Other Thoughts: This thing is comically huge. I saw the picture and imagined a normal sized fan attached to a reasonably large cooler. I suppose I should have paid attention to the 140mm measurement in the title. The fans are significantly larger than normal case fans and the whole thing is the size of a cinder block (OK not quite that big).

I installed it in a Corsaire Carbide 200R and it fits, but is within a hair of the side of the case. I had to mount the fans on the low side to get it to fit and had to take tin snips to the heatsink of one of my RAM sticks which gave me a little chest pain.

It was not extremely simple to install, but follow the directions and take your time and you should not have any problems. Definitely dry fit it in your case and over your RAM before applying any compound so you can see how it goes together and whether you need to modify your heat sinks or get lower profile RAM. I could have installed a smaller third party fan, I suppose, and would not have had to hack up the RAM, but it's done.

1 out of 5 eggsHassle/doesn't fit

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: I'm sure it cools very well... And very good clips for holding the fan on. Good, cheap, effective design for that.

Cons: Two major cons:

1 - I'll be returning this - it's too big, and I can't get more than one RAM card on my mobo - even when designing the fans to pull air rather than push (to try and gain RAM space).

2. It is a -pain- to put together install. Especially when installing it over the brackets. There are two spring-loaded screws that go on either side of the processor to mounting brackets. Screw in one, and you can't screw in the other, and they're very difficult to reach. It took me over an hour to complete this step, and I'm worried I might have done damage to my mobo trying to do this.

No matter how well it cools, it doesn't matter if you can't put RAM on your mobo because of it, or if you break it in trying to install. Size matters, and too big is bad.

Other Thoughts: Pay 10 dollars more for a closed loop water cooler.

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work with 4790k & Z-97A Mobo

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: Looks cool.... Shiny....

Cons: I tried installing this on my Asus Z97-A MOBO with a i7-4790k. It did not work. After reading all the comments and stuff, i saw people saying it would fit LGA 1150... But i guess i was wrong.

Its like it was bent in the middle of the heatsink, making it not fit properly on the CPU. the bracket and everything was installed correctly per the instructions. Maybe its not ready for Devils Canyon..... lol

So watch out, i had to switch to a Corsair h80i.

Other Thoughts: Build:
CM HAF 932 Advanced
Asus Z97-A
Intel i7-4790k 4.0Ghz
G.Skill 16Gbs 1866Mhz DDR3
Nvidia K4200
Samsung 850 256Gb SSD
Maxtor 1TB 7200rpm HDD
Corsair MX750

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: I love the performance of it, two fans are great with the capability of having three. Im running the FX-8350, which is typically a hot a processor but my temps are idling at 40c and even when I play games it doesnt get much hotter than that.

Cons: I have the original NZXT Phantom case and it takes up alot of room inside of it but oh well it still fits. Trying to put this on was a pain in the rear for me because I couldnt get my fingers on the screws to tighten it down to the CPU.

3 out of 5 eggsCooler is great, Phanteks is not.

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: The Phanteks PHTC14-PE keeps my i7-4790k relatively cool when OC'd to 4.5ghz.

Cons: Middle fan started having motor issues within 2 months of use. Phanteks requires that I pay the shipping on the RMA. Considering the price of the fan, thats some expensive shipping.

5 out of 5 eggsChill Pill

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: Looks nice and keeps my CPU cool.

I am only clocking my i5 3570 to 4.2, but I have the little adapter that cuts the fan speed in half yet running iburn at maximum with room temp in the upper 70s F, it never got over 71c. So I know a third fan and and or letting the fans spin up more I could really OC.
It clears my Corsair XMS3 RAM with about 10 mm clearance, the fans could be shifted up a bit so clearing RAM should be no issue.

Cons: Cons? Well there is..no, or..no, hmm, none, it rocks.

Other Thoughts: Read the Specifications and MEASURE the space in your case. This thing is BIG.

If you read the instructions or just pay attention to what you are doing and not rush, this things is VERY easy to install.
