3 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler, painful mounting on AMD

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: Great cooling performance even with stock fans, haven't changed fans or added fans yet but plan to do that when i figure out what would be the best performance upgrade, reviews state the heatsink itself is better than any Noctua

Cons: mounting on an AMD AM3+ board is VERY difficult, you have to force down on the screws to get it to grab the bracket and tight each one in alternating pattern, doing one at a time will cause the other to pop off or become more difficult to screw down, was hoping i didn't damage my CPU or board (sabertooth 990FX r2.0, the AMD system is poorly designed and not well thought out, the bracket needs the pins the screws grab to be just a bit longer or something.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Airflow ever!

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: Beautiful looking and easy to adjust. The actual set up of the cooler is fairly easy. Hooks into stock back plate as well. Uses one port for two fans power. CPU has been running about 15c-25c below what it used to run at while overclocked voltage and ghz.

Cons: A little hard to get connected to the motherboard if in a mid size case. Have to lightly connect one side first then connect the other in order to secure it properly. Long screw driver needed for easy install. fans are proprietary but are high quality and worth it.

Other Thoughts: Overall this unit is amazing for air cooling, I will as go as far as the best I have had for air cooling!

5 out of 5 eggsGood Buy

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: I put this thing on a haswell i5 at normal clock speeds. Extreme overkill, but keeps the processor 5-6C above ambient and is essentially silent. Measure 16.5db right next to the cooler. I like the bracket system.

Cons: Very difficult to fit into a mid tower, but it can be done provided your ram isn't too high. Overall excellent cooler.

Other Thoughts: Overall excellent cooler.

1 out of 5 eggsFans are dead.

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: Installation was easy with clear instructions. The cooler is very large, I could see if you had r.a.m with large or tall heat spreaders this cooler would pose an issue for clearance.
WOW! Temps are lower than i thought they could be as this case is in a confined area.

Cons: Delivered and installed March 16 th 2015

Fans are dead as of today March 27th 2015

Other Thoughts: I have contacted Phanteks

5 out of 5 eggsPH-TC14PE

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: Let me start out by saying this thing is HUGE! At first I thought it wasn't going to fit, I ended up having to scoot one of the fans up a little to clear the RAM. Also, it very nearly touches my GPU. However, the performance more than makes up for the size. A 4690k at 4.2 GHz that doesn't even reach 70C under load? Hell yeah!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: You should definitely make some measurements before you purchase this cooler.

4 out of 5 eggsNot unhappy

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: Fine cooling, lots of air moving over lots of surface area. Flexible: you can orient it any direction and put the outside fan where you find the clearance. The simple fan clips let you replace the fans easily.

Cons: Fans both went out after about eighteen months, a few weeks apart. On the upside, they announced they were failing (rattle, rattle) before really going.

Still using the heatsink with a single 120mm fan in the middle and only see a ten degree C increase while gaming. Ordering new fans presently, which is why I thought to add a review and mention the fans.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a cooler! IMPORTANT: Comes with high end thermal paste!

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: It looks really dramatic and awesome inside the window of the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe.

This is an amazing cooler. The engineering is clever, with rotating cusps for the fan's clamps that snugly attach to the heatsink, and perfectly sized slots to fit your standard screwdriver in with no hassles. It pairs well with the Phanteks series of cases, as there is no need to remove the motherboard to install in LGA 2011, the clever people at Phanteks have left the backside of the motherboard area open.

It's expandable, you can add a third fan.

The lettering is all metal in case you were wondering. Everything is metal except for the fans.

Haswell 3.5 is hovering at 29 Celsius average on all 6 cores. Good.

Cables are sheathed and nice looking.

I found installation slightly complex but not difficult.

The thermal paste they include with it is high quality and enough for several applications. I had to reapply once due to an alignment issue I was having with the screws. I didn't want any air bubbles, so after pulling it away from the paste and CPU, I went ahead and thoroughly cleaned it and reapplied.

It's SO quiet. I cannot even tell it is on!

Cons: This is very large and will completely cover your Memory sticks to the right of an 99x series from ASUS. If you have to reseat your memory you will have to remove the fan at least, and this is made much more difficult if the GPU is in place like mine was. Well it turned out not to be a nightmare, but it could have been if I had to remove the cooler to get to the memory sticks better. Do not get this for anything less than a midsize tower, and think hard about that, even . This is more suitable for a full size tower with lots of room to play. If you were thinking of showing off your motherboard with two GPU's forget about it. Mine only shows the lower fourth of the mobo with its lovely Asus logo and indicator light. That is enough for me.

Other Thoughts: Pair this with the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe full size case you won't regret it. Remember there are like 5 colors to choose from and they go really well with Bit Fenix gear!

I chose black and white, and it offsets the white lighting, black and silver ASUS motherboard and EVGA black and white video card LED lighting nicely.

5 out of 5 eggsSaved by their support

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: Fantastic stock fans.
Fantastic mounting system.
Fantastic packaging.
Beautiful finish.
Excellent technical support (more on that later).

Cons: It's big (but you knew this).
It's heavy (and you expected this).
It interferes with tall heatspreaders (so you bought low profile RAM).

Other Thoughts: So every so often, manufacturing makes a mistake. In my case, their mistake was that they drilled one of the holes crooked on the mounting bracket. This means that I could not mount my cooler. Bummer right?

I called their technical support to explain my situation, and my call was picked up by a person. After a brief chat, I was directed to fill out a support request on their website, and that if I filled it out, and sent in my proof of purchase within the next hour, Phanteks could have my replacement pieces shipped out by the end of the day. So I filled it out, called customer service again (got the same service rep), emailed them my invoice, and within a 2 business days, I had my replacement part. It fit, and the cooler is performing fantastically.

However, if Phanteks reads these reviews, there is a comment that I must make: You made a mistake with your packaging. You sent 2 solid steel brackets with post on them in a thin cardboard envelope. In shipping, they must have gotten caught on the processing equipment. The brackets tore through and shredded the cardboard envelope. When they got to me, the envelope they were original shipped in was in tatters, and one of the 2 brackets had gone missing. Luckily I only needed 1, but when you're shipping parts that can catch on things, please pack them in such a way that they won't get caught.

P.S. the bracket that I did receive was still in perfectly functional condition, which goes to show just how sturdy their steel is.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter then NHD14 , NHD15 , H100i , H105I

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: this is probably the best air cooler you can buy as of 2015, the only one almost better is the nhd15 by noctua... i have a delidded i7 4790k clocked to 5.0 ghz with this , vcore is like 1.43 also... its prime 95 stable with 80c on 2 cores in load...

Cons: the installation , once you have everything set up and your about to put the heatsink on the 2 plates , it gets really tricky and you have to know where the screws are under the heatsink.... once you get the hang of it , its easy...

4 out of 5 eggsHuge and quiet

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: Huge size means a massive thermal mass. I could probably leave this on without fans and it would radiate away enough heat to keep my CPU at reasonable temperatures.
140mm fans and included rubber liners mean massive airflow and nearly no noise. I cannot hear any noise caused by this component - likely because it is obscured by noise from my GPU's tiny fans.

Cons: Huge size could cause problem for certain RAM modules. Mine are low profile, so it does not interfere with them. At the same time, if I wanted to install more RAM, I'd have to take the cooler off (I have LGA2011, so ram slots on both sides of CPU).

Also be mindful of the GPU in your top PCI-E slot. The clearance between it and the cooler's edge is small.

I do not recommend installing this cooler while your motherboard is in a case or vertical.

Keeping your motherboard outside the case, first install the RAM, then the CPU, then this cooler. Lay your case on its side so you can lay the motherboard on the standoffs. Attach the 12V CPU power cable, and finally attach the motherboard to the case with screws in the appropriate locations.
