Phanteks PH-TC14PE White Heatsink Review - PCSTATS.com Phanteks PH-TC14PE White Heatsink Review
Sun, Jan 06 2013 | 12:00PM | Filed under: Cooling / Heatsinks| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

The Phanteks PH-TC14PE (white) itself is a pretty standard dual tower, five-8mm-heatpipe-packing heatsink that retails for about $90 bucks. It stands 168mm tall and has a wide 144x161mm footprint that may have clearance issues on some motherboards where RAM slots and VRM heatsinks are too tall, too near the CPU socket. The cooler weighs upwards of 1250 grams and ships with two 140mm PWM fans arranged in a push-pull configuration. The fans spin at 1200-900RPM and are anywhere from moderately audible to pretty quiet. On the plus side, the dual-fan set up does make this heatsink a good lower noise thermal solution, as you'll shortly see.
The Phanteks PH-TC14PE's five, 8mm diameter copper heatpipes fan out from a thick nickel-plated copper base plate into two 115mm tall anodized aluminum cooling towers. Both fans are held in place with easy to engage/disengage wire fan clips that lock into the sides of the fin stack. The fans rest against clear elastomer strips to isolate the rest of the heatsink from minor vibrations and such.
