  • Summary: The Phanteks PH-TC14PE is the best-performing air cooler I have ever tested. Its look and size give it a great appearance, and the overall build quality is superb. Phanteks offers this unit in many different colors, which allows enthusiasts to pick a color that matches their color scheme perfectly. The cooler's performance is exceptional; I cannot stress enough that its performance is very good.
  • Pros: Exceptional cooling performance, Very quiet, Excellent build quality, Available in multiple colors, Can add a third fan

  • Summary: There is no denying that the Phanteks PH-TC14PE mimics the Noctua NH-D14 's design but it can't be dismissed as a cheap knockoff being sold out of the back of a truck in a run-down alley. It doesn't simply emulate its looks — it is a full-fledged copy that delivers much of the same experience. The PH-TC14PE has a heavy duty build quality, an excellent mounting system, great cooling proficiency, and a nice set of accessories.

Phanteks PH-TC14PE CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Secrets
21 August 2012
  • Summary: After being surprised with the excellent performance , we were expecting a great performance from the PH-TC14PE, which didn’t disappoint us, showing a performance compatible with a real high-end CPU cooler. The noise level was excellent for such a performance. The only problem with the PH-TC14PE is the need of a specific tool (a long Allen screwdriver) to install it properly. We suggest Phanteks to include it in order to make the customer’s life easier.

Phanteks PH-TC14PE Review

30 May 2012
  • Excerpt: YOU'RE FORGIVEN if you’ve never heard of Phanteks. After all, the company only makes one heatsink, though it comes in four colors, and it’s only been out since last fall. The Phanteks PH-TC14PE consists of a nickel-plated copper heatsink and five thick heat pipes, rising through two sets of anodized aluminum cooling fins in orange, blue, red, or plain ol’ aluminum. Fans of Austrian engineering might notice that the PH-TC14PE looks a lot like Noctua’s NH-D14.
  • Pros: Best performing air cooler we’ve tested; comes in four colors.
  • Cons: Huge; conflicts with large RAM heat spreaders; narrow install.

Pro-Clockers
29 April 2012
  • Excerpt: We will be taking a look at their first CPU cooler which they entitle the PH-TC14PE. Phanteks looks to dominate the air cooling market as the TC-14PE shows off some new technology as well as some visual goodness. The combination of P.A.T.S and C.P.S.C Technologies is what Phanteks is hoping will rise them up above the rest. But just what are these new technologies? Read on and find out.
