Phanteks Unveils TC14PE Black CPU Cooler

Phanteks launched itself to the industry with the TC14PE line of fan heatsinks, however the variants it launched only included chrome/silver, blue, red, and orange. The company just listed a new addition, the PH-TC14PE_BK (black). This model uses black color aluminum fin stacks, and a black colored impellers in its fans.

Nothing else changes, with the TC14PE being Phantek's flagship product, an aluminum fin twin-tower heatsink, in which five nickel-plated copper heat pipes pass through the CPU base in a U-shape, with its arms passing through two independent aluminum fin stacks, which are ventilated by two 140 mm fans (1300 RPM @ 19.5 dBA). Measuring 159x140x171 mm (LxWxH), the TC14PE_BK weighs 1250 g. It should cost similar to the other variants, at 79.90 Euros.

oh sweet design (although 1 or 2 mem slot will be sacrificed because of this), it has a fan control and also their black model look badass.

Wow, that color scheme makes it look really awesome. Definitely one of the sexiest air coolers I've seen in a while!

While I understand the idea of dual-radiator heat-pipe cooler (running one myself Cogage Arrow with horizontal motherboard so stress in negligible), but Phanteks are just beyond ridiculous. Performance s excellent, but with fans it is nearly 2kg. Slowly but surely we are closing to Thermalright120 True Copper which was impossible to mount with vertical motherboard. What is the point of constantly increasing size and weight? Manufacturers couldn't care less about horizontal motherboard tray, most desktop cases are off limits and so you are stuck in DIY department..

At some stage liquid cooling is the only option and so I'm abandoning large air coolers in my next build.

Just go for an H100, simple and effective.

So does the heatsink weigh 1200 grams or is that number with two fans installed?

must be me because I think it looks just like they've put 2x 140mm fans on their 120mm HSF
and now the fans hang low

other than that it looks bloody good

sincerely not, it's totally better the phanteks. Check the performance/noise ratio

http://www.xtremehardware.it/cooling/air/prolimatech-megahalems-rev-c-201203286745/6/

the phanteks it's equal to the h100, but with an RPM at 1230 (3x140mm fans, Push/Push/Pull configuration) vs 2600 (4x 120mm fans, Push/Pull configuration), on a Core i7 920@2.66GHz with 1.2V and 1.25QPI/Dram (VTT), in a test bench platform at 22 degrees celcius. At 3.4GHz it's 56 vs 58, at 4.0 it's 64 vs 67 !

This product it's simply phenomenal

Yeah, AIO liquid coolers are lame.

I'm still waiting for something to beat my mugen 2 in push pull.

I didn't say that the H100 performs better, I said that is simple and effective, especially because you don't have an huge piece of aluminum hanging from your motherboard.
Yes it has the 120.2 radiator but that's an easy fit on most cases today.
