4 out of 5 eggsExceptional Cooling Unit

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BK Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: 150-158mm high, Not the tallest Coller, although not the smallest
Idles with fan speed of 500 to 550 RPM at 25 degrees Centigrade
PWM Y-connector allows pwm control over one fan header
Black color scheme is visually appealing, especially the black and white premium fans
Updated mount has made this cooler be horizontally installed on AMD AM3+ sockets instead of vertically

Cons: Loud fans, although inaudible when set to PWM
Very tight fit when mounting; I though the CPU was getting crushed and feared my motherboard would crack
Phanteks LOGO came off, but I was able to put it back on by following where it locks onto the heatsink fins

Other Thoughts: This is a great investment if you are planning to do custom air cooling for your system. Quiet PWM controls really helps if you mind the sound resonating from your PC, Although ramping this cooler to 900 or 1150 RPM allows for steady cooling under load, depending if you overclock or not. Overall, 4 eggs to Phanteks.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome CPU cooler

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BK Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: Pretty quiet

Very sleek looking

High quality fans

Comes with a 4 pin y cable

Nice thermal compound included

Fit nicely next to my corsair vengeance RAM

Cons: The cable sheath on the fans were very thick.

Other Thoughts: Im using a mid tower case with top mounted 140mm fans and i had trouble attaching the fans to the cooler and routing the cables around the fans . Also I had to remove my RAM in order to install but they went back in no problem after the installation.

5 out of 5 eggsPhanteks PH-tc12dx

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BK Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: Nice solid cooler with an extremely easy mounting system
Cools well, but i did not use stock fans.
Looks good! no complaints does well for a $50 cooler
Packaged well with soft foam so it will arrive in one piece.

Cons: Included fans are meh at best. If they just added fans that were pressure optimized you wouldn't need 2. Remember, adding a 2nd fan doesn't magically increase airflow just the pressure.

Other Thoughts: Purchased over a coolermaster hyper 212 evo, i liked the black coating which actually helps cool the cpu as well. Makes it look good in my system.

Keeps a i5-4690k @ 4.5ghz under 60c while intense gaming

Intel burn test maxes it at 80c but that is an absolute 100% synthetic benchmark designed to tax the cpu in ways that gaming/average user cannot.

Would buy again and again

2 out of 5 eggsArrived Broken

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BK Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: Good Fans, Great Look

Cons: Arrived Broken

Other Thoughts: Once I opened the box, noticed that the Phanteks logo (the top of the heat sink) was not attached to the heatsink itself. Had to RMA it, and still awaiting Newegg's reply.

5 out of 5 eggsPhanteks PH-TC12DX Black

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BK Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: Duel fans (120mm) and the size of the heatsink was just right to fit in my case (description below).
Some people say it is to big, but bigger is better imo. Bigger the heatsink provides greater surface area for the heat to spread.
My computer now runs at 46 degrees C on max settings in COD Ghosts, 14-17 degrees lower than stock (both use Artic Silver 5 thermal compound).

Cons: I wish it came in all black. I tried to keep my computer all black and blue.

Other Thoughts: Just fits in my Cooler Master HAF 932 and just fits over the RAM so if you have anything taller than this RAM it may not fit.
Motherboard: MSI Z77A-GD65.
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaw X Series F3-14900CL8D-8GBXM
CPU: i5-2380P (quad core 1155 socket).
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 660.
I didn't have a problem installing it (my first aftermarket heatsink installation) the instructions aren't bad, but it is very straight forward. I say if you are able to put a computer together, you can be able to put the aftermarket heatsink on.

4 out of 5 eggsCooling

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BK Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: Keeps my AMD FX-9370 cool.

Cons: Instruction are terrible. The written instruction are very hard to follow and the pictures make it even worse. I was very concerned about making sure I was spot on with the instructions because I did not want to mess up the installation and burn out my CPU. However, once I started using the instructions as a guideline and my common sense to finish the process it was a much easier install.

Other Thoughts: Easier to install if you have an AMD board as you don't need to switch out the back plate. I was able to install the assembly with the motherboard already mounted in my case. Intel people are going to have to do some more work.

1 out of 5 eggsDissapointed

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BK Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

Pros: Looks good as well as including 2 quality fans.

Cons: Complete lack of customer service from Phanteks. Heat sink not very well constructed.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this CPU cooler due to the Phanteks name.
Figured it would out perform a small water cooler of similar price.Authentically looks good and would have complimented my build. Unboxed product to find the top of the heat sink with the Phanteks logo was not attached to the heat sink.Seems as if some clips were broken and the top cap would not go back on. I got in touch with Phanteks to see what I should do(as the instructions say to contact Phanteks customer service). Well I was told by Phanteks customer support to send the product back to Newegg. This isn't how a company trying to build a loyal customer acts.How often do you get instructions that say contact the manufacturer before the retailer.That's just what I did and basically all that happened is Phanteks tried to pass the buck to Newegg.All I asked is if they sell the heat sink(or top plate)seperately. Instead I was just brushed off and told to let Newegg deal with it. Sorry Phanteks I was all set to purchase a Primo or Luce this year(along with several Phantek accessories) Not anymore as I see a company that doesn't care for its customers only a profit. What a shame.
