5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler!

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

Pros: Easy, very cool, I have an i5 4670k and it's OC'd to 4.4GHz. It idles at 26c and under full load it hits 45c. I did replace the original fans with corsair Af140 fans and they are a little more quiet than the originals and run about 3 degrees cooler.
Look at the tests, this cooler beats out a lot of water coolers. and it's half the price.

Cons: Original fans are a little loud. But I already had some corsair af140 at home. I swapped them in with some custom mounting and it's a lot more quiet.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Cooler - Beware of the size!

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

Pros: Keeps my i7 4770K OC'ed to 4.4 Ghz below 70C at all times when stress testing.

Cons: Using the fans in pull/pull configuration due to RAM clearance constraints...but still manages to do the job well.

Tightening the dual fingerscrews to mount the heatsink felt very imprecise. I would rest easier knowing that they were tightened evenly to ensure the CPU is receiving equal pressure top-to-bottom. (This could be achieved using a torque wrench, I suppose.)

Other Thoughts: Don't forget to pick a color...

5 out of 5 eggsSeriously AMAZING

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

Pros: EXTREMELY cold
Very quiet.
Versatile configurations.
Your basic aftermarket cooler install, LOL @ the people who couldn't figure this out, it's literally the same as every other corsair/CM/thermaltake cooler install. y'all need to chill.

Cons: I really only found all of 1-2 "cons"

1) the heatsink fins are a little low-set, so on the DDR4 Corsair Dominators, the outer portions of each side of the cooler are so low that is DOES NOT make contact with the cpu (stealth brag I bought a 5960x)

This had to be resolved by physically REMOVING 3 of the outer fins from each side. these are either spot-welded or soldered onto the (central) heatpipes, and are connected as halves. IN ENGLISH: each gigantic radiator is made up of 2 halves of cooling fins, so they're easy to break the weld and pop them off cleanly. :D

2) this isn't a real con, but can be considered a con, i guess, maybe, if you're being super picky.... idk w/e....... but the fact that they combine 2x 4 pin fan power connectors into a single doesn't allow for accurate representation of RPM. They can be broken up into 2, so this isn't even an issue, idk.... i guess this isn't even a con. just worth mentioning that this is no hybrid weirdly built frankencooler, it's just two fans on a set of 2 heatsinks, so don't expect a single one plug to do the job. most boars have 2 spots for CPU fans now, even further nullifying this "con"

Other Thoughts: Honestly, this cooler is the best air-cooler i've ever used in my entire life.

My idle temps on my i7-5960x @ 1.5V @ 4.6GHz range between 22c and 30c depending on my office temperature.

Under load of gaming, it can ALMOST hit 40c, but struggles to do even that.

Under cpu-aimed load tests, it can hit real cpu temps, 60c-80c depending, but that's under the hardest 100% load capable of being delivered.

The ASUS x99 Deluxe auto-overclocker considers CPU temps when overclocking, and with this cooled, i was able to achieve 4.4GHz before having to take over and push it with my own comfort level.

Again, I STRONGLY recommend this cooler to anyone who is ready for the top tier of air cooling.

4 out of 5 eggsPhanteks PH-TC14PE

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

Pros: Keeps my i7 4790 nice and cool while being nearly silent. Great looking anodize with nice fin quality.

Cons: Took one egg off for finish of bottom. Not nearly the smoothness I was used to. May be on purpose for all i know these days though. Instructions could use a tad bigger picture for fan/bracket installation. Was a little hard to understand till I watched video online.

Other Thoughts: Wish I would have got the red now. The black is so good it almost hides in there. May take back off later and lap bottom plate to see if I can get even better performance out of it & I will update if so.

4 out of 5 eggsIt runs cool

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

Pros: The temperatures are very cool on my i7-4790k.

The fans latch onto the heatsink make them easily adjustable

Cons: It barely threads into the screws pulling it down onto the Processor making it feel insecure (I've tested it plenty and it doesn't come loose, it just feels like it would.)

It's relatively audible. It's not loud, but I imagine due to the size of the fans and the cooling it provides it just gets louder

A piece of my metal mounting frame was badly bent out of shape when I received it and I couldn't get it to rest flat and screw in its mounting screw. I had to carefully flatten it out so it could mount.

Other Thoughts: This thing is huge, like really huge. If I ever want to run a second R9 290 Crossfire I'll probably have to get a smaller heatsink.

As with all heavier duty heatsinks the process is more involved to actually get them mounted and that's OK, I knew that coming in.

I'm closer leaning towards rating it a 3.5, Let's say the .5 additional rating is that the price was lower than other equivalent heatsinks and it had a mail in rebate.


Would I buy this model again? No, I'd probably find a heatsink with less audible fans.

5 out of 5 eggsPhanteks Rocks!

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

Pros: Quiet
Large (That's why I bought it)
Keeps the CPU cool
Easy to install
Solid Backplate

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Allowed me to OC my i5-750 to 4 ghz, with temps never going above 60 C at full load. A HUGE upgrade from my H50, which would allow 90C+ temps even at moderate loads.

4 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

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

Pros: Near liquid cooling temps on air.
Looks great. (Subjective...)
No blemishes on the processor contact plate.
Easy to mount for its size.
Quiet.

Cons: Size. (Still smaller than liquid reservoir set up.)
Weight. May stress mother board over time?

Other Thoughts: Processor: 4770k OC'd to 4.4 GHz.
Case: Corsair 300R
Fans: 1 Stock intake

Been running stable for 6 months now, no issues.
Temps are lower than stock cooler w/ stock clock.

5 out of 5 eggsProblems Solved - Great Cooler

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

Pros: I originally rated the product negatively due to defects, but Newegg made the RMA process as smooth as possible. Now that that is out of the way, I do have to say that the cooler is very nice-looking, surprisingly quiet, and cools very well. It comes with additional anti-vibration strips and clips to allow for a third fan of your choice, if you so choose, and the variety of colors available is a very nice touch. I am confident stating this is a contender for one of most effective air coolers on the market. Just be warned that it is a bit big and needs a decent-sized case.

Cons: The only potential downside I can think of to it is that it's large. I needed to reconfigure the fans into a pull-pull configuration to be able to fit it (as it was colliding with my RAM otherwise). Fortunately, this hasn't affected cooling ability.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst purchase possible.

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

Pros: There are none.

Cons: Simply put, this is the worst purchase I've ever made off of Newegg. I've owned, assembled, and attached many CPU heatsinks in my time, and none have even come close to being as horrible of an experience as the Phanteks.

The parts are convoluted, poorly explained in the manual, flimsy, and impossible to replace if broken.

Once assembled, you better be willing to damage your arms and your motherboard just to attach this heatsink. I've spent the better part of the day attempting to put this on, and all I have to show for it is a sore hand and a damaged RAM slot. It is still not attached, and I'm considering throwing it away and purchasing a different brand.

Other Thoughts: It fits three fans, but only comes with two. Even if you have an extra fan of identical size, the parts that attach it to the heatsink only work on Phantek fans. So you'll have to buy another fan from them seperately if you want all three.
