5 out of 5 eggsjust as good for half the money

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BL Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: Tested 100% load AMD FX 8350 (no OC) in a hot room for 90 mins, stayed near 51c and maxed at 54, idles at 28C. Looks good, very quiet, fans feed exhaust at the back of the case.

It's allot cheaper than the other cooling solutions out there that I looked at, seems to do the job just fine. Instructions were pretty easy to follow.

Cons: Mounting it was kinda tricky with an AMD board... I found myself using so much force to press down on the spring screw to get the threads to grip it I thought I'd break the board.

What they don't say in the instructions is that its way easier to switch up the installation order... put the spring screw into the brackets then just attach those to your board. Tighten up as needed. D'oh!

Other Thoughts: Yes its pretty big. Go full ATX or be sure of your measurements...

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BL Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: Fantastic cooling capability. Keeps my OC'd FX-6300 cool @ 4.4, 12 degrees Celsius idle . Ran prime 95 for about 30 mins and didnt go past 51. Good color seletion. (I chose blue and white). I have the fans running at max speed and it isnt as loud as I expected it to be.

Cons: Just barely fits in my thermaltake commander MS-I. If you have a high profile ram it might block the first ram slot.

Other Thoughts: Will give this product 5 stars because it did fit in my case and I was didnt have to move my ram.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks EXTREMELY well!

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BL Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: Pretty blue color to match my ASUS board. Push/pull configuration with two fans included. Mounts now allow you to vent out the back on AMD AM3+ socket. Drastically reduced operating temperatures, better than expected!

Cons: Blocks the first slot on my RAM bank on ASUS M5A-99FX PRO Rev 2.0 board (not an issue for me as I only have one set of RAM). You might fit some lower profile ram in under this, for sure not something like the Corsair Vengeance kit I have.

Other Thoughts: Out of the box, the FX-8350 and stock HSF was pushing 71C CPU during heavy loads, at which point the fan would start screaming trying to pull core temps down. The core temps according to AMD's (flawed) thermistors were approaching 68C! That is some HELLISH heat. After installing this (the most difficult part was securing the unit to the brackets, gotta use some muscle!) I am happy to report the following differences:
STOCK HSF: 42C idle/71C MAX ON GAMING LOADS (at which point I think the CPU throttles itself to avoid killing itself)
THIS HSF: 36-37C idle/56C MAX ON GAMING LOADS! (core temps also only got up to 50C, again according to AMD's flawed thermistors)
TOTALLY worth the price of admission here folks! This was tested with Far Cry 3, same configuration just different heatsinks. In no way is this meant to be an accurate test but the results speak for themselves!

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BL Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: Great cooler, keeps CPU pretty cool.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: Keeps CPU cool, on my i5-4690k non oc runs idle 26c, prime95 about 50c. On preset settings in bios to oc to 4.5ghz, runs idle 31c, on prime95 full load goes up to about 70c. Wouldn't recommend oc that high on air at 70c but would be great for small oc and stock settings!

5 out of 5 eggsKeeps things cool & quiet.

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BL Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: Looks great and very well constructed. Keeps my overclocked AMD 8320 nice and cool while being very quiet. Easy to install once you figure out the directions. Ease of installation was a biggie for me as a first time builder (I've read a lot of horror stories about aftermarket cooler installing).

Cons: One of the illustrations - at least on my copy - was incorrect for AMD mounting. Would have been easy to really screw things up had I tried it that way. But once I figured out it was wrong installation was a snap.

Other Thoughts: It seems I may have gotten one of the last blue models from Newegg. It looks so nice with my Asus board and Gskill ram. But if you like or don't mind the still available colors I'd highly recommend this cooler for the build quality, cooling, and very easy installation.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BL Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: Good price. AMD kit now installs with fans in same direction as Intel. Does not block RAM slots in this config. Temps went from 40's with stock fan to high 20's. Fans push air in the same direction as other case fans.

Cons: None so far.

4 out of 5 eggsworks great

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BL Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: silent, looks great, matches my build. vs stock on a 8350 playing planetside2 for about 2 hrs my temps went from 58-60 to 47 with a slight over clock. install would have been very simple if i had a full tower. doesn't cover any of my ram slots. with turbo option selected fans are running at 1308 and 1344 rpm.

Cons: the way the fans mount on to the heat sink is a little sketchy the pins pop out very easy, i lost a few in my case during install. also i have a mid tower (nzxt guardian) and the side case fan hits the heat sink on the corner so i had to move the fan down slightly and use double sided tape till i get a full tower.

Other Thoughts: before buying this i know there was a lot of talk about the mounting going from north to south but it does attach east to west
