general information

Phanteks PH-TC12DX Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler

The Phanteks PH-TC12DX is a U-Type dual tower heat-sink with four 6mm heat-pipes, which really sets itself apart from the rest with its optimal airflow, cooling performance and ultra-quiet operation.

The PH-TC12DX’s 6mm heat-pipes are linearly aligned and developed to have the least amount of air and thermal resistance. Incorporating P.A.T.S and C.P.S.C Technologies, it delivers better heat dissipation and heat transfers. With dual PH-F120HP PWM Premium fans, PH-TC12DX provides higher airflow performance while maintaining silent operation. Plus, the included SoliSku universal mounting kit provides great socket compatibility with both Intel and AMD platforms.

general information

Exclusive P.A.T.S

Exclusive P.A.T.S (Physical Antioxidant Thermal Shield) will greatly increase the cooling performance and reliability while deflecting thermal radiation from other heat sources, such as the GPU, South Bridge, North Bridge, etc. P.A.T.S, ran at a long period, will display significantly better results in an enclosure, closed environment, than a tech station, open environment. In extreme conditions, PATS is able to withstand temperatures of up to 200 degrees Celsius. P.A.T.S is environmental friendly and non-toxic.

general information

Exclusive C.P.S.C

Exclusive C.P.S.C (Cold Plasma Spraying Coating Technology) is a brand new technologic forming deposit that displaces heat onto corresponding metals at a quicker rate. With this technology, the Phanteks PH-TC12DX enhances thermal conductivity on the soldered surfaces of the heat-pipes through the copper deposits.

general information

Dual PH-F120HP PWM Premium Fans

Phanteks PH-F120HP PWM Premium fans use UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) bearing, nine blades and MAFO (Maelstrom Air-Fort Optimization) drive system to achieve massive airflow and perfect dynamic balance. The PH-F120HP fans with the support of the anti-acoustic rubber pad and rubber bar produce low level dB(A) and eliminate vibration. With PWM functions built in, PH-F120HP fans allow you to set speed adjustments for either performance and/or silent operation.

general information

High-quality PH-NDC Thermal Compound

The PH-NDC is a superb quality thermal compound for heat-sinks. It is made of high-purity nano diamond like particles to improve the thermal conductance between components. Heat generated by CPUs will transfer to the heat-sinks without reduction in efficiency and resistance.

general information

Great Socket Compatibilities

SoliSku universal mounting kit provides broad socket compatibilities for Intel LGA 2011/1150/1155/1156/1366/775 and AMDFM2/FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2 (Stock back-plate required).

Just what I wanted. 5/7/2020 11:44:57 AM

Pros: Cost effective for those of us who don't want to OC. Keeps CPU nice and cool.
Quiet. Looks nice. The fan clips aren't hard to deal with like some coolers.
It's not as bulky as many coolers, nice for small build.
Hardware is good, feels firm.
Comes with Y adapter that's really nice, all cables have a sheath.
Install was easy. Came with enough thermal paste to do 10x probably.

Cons: Instructions didn't directly say it works for LGA1151, but it does, and it clarified in online documentation.

Overall Review: Get this if you don't want ugly fans and don't like to OC the hell out of your CPU.

Good for what it is... 1/1/2019 8:12:49 AM

Pros: -Price is fair, I found it runs best with Arctic Sliver Thermal Grease.
-Moves lots of air
-Runs super quiet despite the CFMs it puts out. The fans on My GPU are louder than this.

Cons: Hard to install with the supplied brackets.
Otherwise this it an awesome product.

Looking good , tricky to install 12/13/2018 2:22:55 AM

Pros: -beautiful Air cooler with a lot of color options I took the white
-good cable management

Cons: -the instruction of the installation were very tricky to understand I bought a LGA1511 panel(Z390) and couldn't find instruction for that.
-A bit loud if you push it to get more air
(but i don't know if its really cons since it is an air cooler and not a small one )

Very Impressed Besides a Couple of Minor Things 11/12/2018 2:22:48 PM

Pros: Good performance, definitely an upgrade from my previous air cooler, and lower temps than I expected.

Cons: A few frustrations from cable management
Product photos are a little misleading, but not maliciously so

Overall Review: I got the white version of this cooler to replace my Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo that sat on my 4790k for the last four or five years. With the 212, I was able to get an overclock of 4.4 GHz at 1.2 volts. At 100% load, my temps sat at around 72°, peaking around 75° after running for 10 minutes, and those numbers would rise about 3° after running for longer.

With this cooler, all of those temps dropped by about 5-7°. I was really impressed and relieved by these numbers since benchmarks specifically comparing this cooler with the 212 were so hard to find. My purchase was decided due in part to aesthetics (I have a mostly-white build), so the fact that I now have more than just a few degrees of thermal headroom is a huge plus.

I do have a couple of minor gripes about the product. Firstly, the top of the cooler looks like it could be white or could be silver in the product photos. It is definitely silver, just in case anyone was wondering. It definitely isn't a dealbreaker, it would just be best if it was clearer one way or the other in the photos.

Secondly, cable management was a little tricky because of the included splitter. Rather than splitting toward the base of the cable, closer to where it plugs into the motherboard, it splits toward the other end, giving you only an inch to work with past the split. I think that on paper, this is the right call since you have fewer cables to try to worm behind all the nooks and crannies of your build. However, in practice, it just kind of leaves you with one cable with the perfect length and another that has some slack on it that's super difficult to fold in, since where you want to fold is right where the split occurs. At the end of the day, I got the cables in an acceptable position, though, and they look good in their own right with white braiding. However, if I could change one thing about this product, it would be that splitter.

Overall, my problems are incredibly minor with how happy I am with the product as a whole. Installation was straightforward, my temps are down more than I expected them to be, and it looks good in the build. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone considering it.

Looks Great 9/27/2018 11:02:36 AM

Pros: Looks great , Functions. Has lots of clearance for my RAM.

Cons: I had to keep the cross braces loose, attach the tower cooler to them then tighten everything down at once.
The screws would not line up doing it in the order the manual instructs. The tolerences are very tight and I hope it isn't a strain on the MoBo.

Great performing and good looking Cooler! 3/15/2018 9:07:16 AM

Pros: -The installation was easy, install method is similar to that of Noctua.
-Cooler looks very nice ( I know it's subjective) and is fairly silent.
-Idle noise is almost inexistant.
-Performs way better than expected!

Cons: For me? None really

Overall Review: I bought this cooler to install in a NZXT S340 Elite (white) and the look of everything together is incredible.
I previously had a Noctua NH-D14, but I decided to replace it with this little Phanteks cooler. I was ok with loosing a bit of cooler power, but after everything installed, I must say I am very surprised at how well this little thing cools my 4790k. I did not ever went to 70 Celcius in Prime95 Small FFT!!

Very Satisfied with this little guy! And with Phanteks in General!

Easy to install, does its job. 7/24/2017 10:28:24 AM

Pros: Keeps my i7-3930K below 50C while ambient 88F.
Extremely quiet, the stock fans are superb
All RAM slots can be used with any height modules on a Rampage IV Extreme.

Cons: Stock fans rotate at low RPM (~400 RPM), which was detected as a CPU fan error by my Rampage IV Extreme. Easily fixed by changing the error down to 300 RPM threshold. There's nothing really bad to say about this cooler.

Overall Review: Replaced a 5 year old Corsair H80 which had pump failure. I will never go back to liquid again after this.

Fits nicely in my case, quiet, not that hard to install 3/31/2017 7:27:31 AM

Pros: -Install was easy, if you carefully read the instructions and make sure you find the proper socket to install it on.

Cons: -Controller cable is hard to hide

Overall Review: I bought a Phanteks case, too, so I planned for the CPU fan to be compatible. It lines up perfectly with the exhaust fan on my case for optimally sending out the heat. I like that there were two fans, but the controller cable to link them together into the motherboard is visible and it's hard to hide it.
