Phanteks PH-TC14CS_BL 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs ***UPDATE*** High Temps if loose 06/29/2013

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14CS_BL 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: Silent without PWM and runs at 1350RPMs on 140mm Fans, Simply Amazing!!!!
Max Temps 62c on Benchmarks and 55c Max on Gaming Like GTA 4, League of legends, Planetside2, StarCraft2 HOTS, and Blacklight Retribution !!!

Cons: Title isn't a con, No cons for stupidity!!!!

Have to put my tech level at 2 for this one, I feel dumb for rushing an important process of my PC gaming rig :(

Other Thoughts: The day I got it I rushed to install it and to my amazement it was loose when I 1st booted up with it, Still got low temps till I ran some Benchmarks (See other review) It touch 72c on my FX-6300 @ 4.8GHz which I consider a danger zone (No damage to my CPU or Motherboard)

I removed it and reinstalled it with fresh MX-4 Thermal compound and tighten the screws (Like stated in the Manual "Caution don't over tighten, Just tighten till the screw reaches its stop point") This was the reason why I didn't tighten, I didn't want to damage it but has to get tighten to the point to where it works lol.

Im proudly running my FX-6300 @ 4.8GHz stable and my max Benchmark temp is 62c and idles around 23c (Temp source HWMonitor)

5 out of 5 eggs Amazeing Huge Cooler 06/28/2013

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14CS_BL 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: Awesome performance better then most AIO liquid Cooler Highly recommended to any OC!!! My FX-6300 idles around 25c @4.7GHz, Max load on 59c, Tested on Intel burn test and Fritz Chess Benchmark, Great Manual but could of been a little BETTER!!!!

Cons: Great Manual but could of been a little BETTER!!!! But its still an awesome cooler, So no egg deduction!!!
and its BIG!!!!(Make sure you have clearance on your Motherboard heatsink and RAM) Not that I had an issue I have Mushkin Enhanced 8GB 1866MHz Redline series and it fit perfectly!!!

A little difficulty with Installation But its expected with this size of a cooler But pays off with the performance!!!!

Other Thoughts: Comes in many colors incl. Blue, Red, Silver, Black and Orange!!!
