5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

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

Pros: Excellent heat dissipation and low maintenance for a good price. Top-tier air cooler. Outperforms any self-contained water cooling unit in it's price range. Relatively large tube of thermal paste included. Very happy with the product. I'll likely extend it's use to my next build, provided I have or can obtain the correct mounting brackets.

Cons: On arrival there was a slight bend, maybe five degrees or so on one set of heat pipes connecting of the fin towers to the base block, which made it difficult to install the center fan. It was packaged well enough that I'm certain it came out of the factory that way. It took care to straighten the bend without causing any damage to the unit. Considerably minor issue so I am not subtracting any eggs.

Other Thoughts: This is a very large CPU cooler. Be sure that it will fit in your case before purchase. It should fit in most full-size and some mid-size cases. I would highly recommend comparing the provided measurements against those of your computer case. Be conscious of clearance over your RAM if you have modules with a high profile, as the cooler will extend over at least one memory slot on most motherboards.

The cooler allowed me to overclock an Ivy Bridge CPU to a very stable 4.5GHz which I've been running at continuously for several years now. While there is some correlation between the two, in my circumstances, instability beyond that speed was a result of voltage issues rather than temperature issues. From a cooling perspective I believe it could have gone further.

If you're not intending on pushing your CPU through overclocking, there is really no need to spend the extra money on a cooler of this size.

Y splitter to connect both fans to the CPU header on the motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsBIG, VERY BIG. But also very good.

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

Pros: 1. Cool Lookin'
2. Easy to install
3. VERY EFFECTIVE COOLER FOR OC
4. You can add another fan if you need more chill.
5. Watching a movie, writing this review, and defragging a HDD.... My 4790 is idling at 34C (That's like 93F)
6. When I game I hit like 40C.
7. When I OC the DICKENS out of the CPU, I stay at about 60C. This thing is highly effective for me. :)

Cons: 1. Freakin Huge.
2. Some assemble required. The instructions could be better.... but get the job done.
3. This thing takes up a lot of case real estate. MEASURE before you BUY!

Other Thoughts: This is probably the best Air Cooler I have ever had. Dont get my wrong, I love my Hyper 212 Evo, and it was a darn fine cooler. This thing is a whole different level. Just buy it. Heck, buy TWO and save a friend some pain!

1 out of 5 eggsWould be nice, if it actually came with everything.

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

Pros: Looks nice, doesn't cost as much as some other options.

Cons: One of the four motherboard mounting screws came with absolutely no threading. This is a really basic quality control thing to get wrong, and now I get to wait another week without access to a computer because of one simple screw. Thanks.

Other Thoughts: I'll take my business elsewhere from now on. Noctua has never steered me wrong, and can generally have the capacity to make sure they thread their screws. Thought I could save a few bucks, but it's not worth it when I next-day shipped all my parts in time for classes, and now I won't have access to my school files for an entire week.

5 out of 5 eggsbest air heatsink in the market

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

Pros: So since the recent death of my water cooler pump (which was rather bad since I did not want a return of the stock heatsink on my system) along came this lovely thing, and it keeps my i5 3570K (OC'ed to 4.2Ghz) at an idle temperature of about 32~37 degrees load temps this thing does not exceed the mid 40s (mind you this is during the summer) so yea, it's really awesome.
I should also say this thing is absolutely quiet which is great since I can't stand loud fans or coil whine.
Instructions were also good (and they come in all sorts of languages which is neat to see) OHH and THANKS Phanteks for including a large tube of thermal compound with this product, however I wish more information could be provided about it thou, you know wether it is conductive or what thermal resistance/conductive numbers are but hey at least they gave you a large tube of the stuff and it seems to be rather good.

Cons: Installation was a bit of a pain since the backplate of my previous cooler was not compatible with this I had to unplug everything and get the board out of my case (and my neat cable management and that pesky 8 pin CPU cable) install the backplate then the cooler without the fans put it back in the case and then plug the 8 pin CPU cable install the fans and all the other stuff, do you get now why this might be inconvenient? (Luckily the instructions were clear and I knew what I was doing)

Other Thoughts: Before you buy, ask yourself the following, will this fit on my case? How will I go about installing it and the fans? And will there be any issues regarding RAM heatsink clearance? After all this thing means business and you need to have a build plan ahead of time before you go ahead and place your order.
That being said, this thing is awesome and I thoroughly recommend this heatsink to everyone

5 out of 5 eggsInsanely Quiet

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

Pros: - Works as good as most water cooling setups I've worked on.
- Its quiet! My case fans are now the only source of noise in my setup.

Cons: - Unpleasant install on my AMD board
- Huge, filled up a good position of the free space in my enclosure.

5 out of 5 eggsNice!

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

Pros: Upgraded from a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (awesome cooler for the price!!!) i7-3930k hex core, stock 3.2Ghz, running 98% CPU usage for hours compressing video, temps dropped 11C (58C 212 EVO : 47C PH-TC14).

Cons: Easy to install on 2011 socket, no back plate needed, looks like it will be hard to install by yourself for sockets requiring the back plate.

Other Thoughts: Got it brand new for $45, can't complain! I have 3 computers with the Hyper 212 EVO coolers and those are AWESOME especially for the price! I'm gonna save the EVO I took out of my main tower and build a living room steam in-home streaming box.
