Pros: It does what it's supposed to do, and looks good doing it; I love how the Phanteks logo looks reminiscent of the Star Trek TNG font.

Cons: I bought it on a sale and received the package without one of the securing nuts that holds the heat sink. The problem was quickly resolved through an email to Phanteks. They sent off a replacement nut immediately.

Overall Review: The heat-sink is so gloriously huge that I was able to remove both 140mm fans without worry. My case came with three 120mm fans and one 200mm, and those blow enough air through the PH-TC14PE to keep it cool and quiet. The 140mm Phantek fans push a LOT of air, but since I'm not a gamer I prioritized quiet over cooling capability. CPU still stays under 30 deg C.
