5 out of 5 eggs Simply the best 06/07/2013

This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler

Pros: Alright so I got one of these and I loaded it up with 3x TY-143 fans from Thermalright. I got these fans because they're solid and they fit perfectly for this heat sink, combined it makes it the best air on the market, see other thoughts for more details

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: So it hasn't even been 12 hours yet. I've been running prime95 for 8~ hours on my stable 4.7ghz 2.255v (ultra LLC) overclock which before saw temps like this:

Hyper 212+: 86-93-90-86
Phanteks + 3x TY-143's: 77-84-81-77

Keep in mind, it's my first seating and I didn't give the thermal compound any time to cure. This is the first boot and attempt. I can expect lower temps. Also prime hasn't broken those temps since early on. All cores are hovering around 65-70 now for the most part. I opened up a 2nd copy of a temp monitor about 30 minutes ago and the max it has hit in that 30 mins is:


Conclusion: This cooler with these 3 fans is insane, and maybe another re-seat or awaiting it to cure will give me high 60s and low 70s on prime95 12+ hours with 90% ram. This is very impressive for an air cooled non delidded 3770K at 1.255v (hits 1.272v cause of LLC) at 4.7ghz. Buy this cooler it's amazing.

Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Supports up to E-ATX / XL-ATX, Comes With Four Fans - 1 x Front Red LED 230mm Fan, 1 x Top 230mm Fan, 1 x Side 230mm Fan, 1 x Rear 140mm Fan

Pros: Good case, large lots of room to work around, good air flow, insane cable management, comes with decent fans, looks cool and does everything it is supposed to. I upgraded from an Antec Eleven Hundred and I don't regret it. The case is simply better.

Cons: When seating certain cards I found that the design of the case was a bit off. It was a pita to seat my video cards properly where as in the antec it fit perfectly. That goes for my sound card as well. Not sure what the deal is with that, but once I got the cards re-seated and working, I was pleased. 5 eggs because I won't take off 1 egg for a little snag.

PS: None of my grommets came off, the one that came close didn't either, use common sense.

Other Thoughts: Buy this case if you're looking for:
1) Good cable management.
2) Looks cool
3) Good air flow (but not "great")
4) Lots of room
5) Full tower
