Packaging & Contents
The box Phanteks has put their cooler into is rather small with a length of 21 cm in length, width of 17 cm, and height of 20 cm. It is colorful and catchy in its appearance, showing off all the various color options of the PH-TC14PE. The side lists the cooler's specifications and the back offers some information on the cooler's design and the technology used in its creation.
The opposite side lists the various features of the Phanteks PH-TC14PE, including P.A.T.S (Physical Antioxidant Thermal Shield), C.P.S.C (Cold Plasma Spraying Coating Technology), and others. The top has the company logo and shows off the various color options Phanteks offers a second time.
When I opened the box, it was obvious that everything within was well placed. Phanteks used soft foam to absorb impacts and protect the product during shipping.
First up, there is the heatsink and the installation guide. The image here is a bit misleading, as the angle makes the dual tower heatsink look a bit small. The instructions are, on the other hand, clean, clear, and easy to read. While the directions some coolers come with are vague, users should not have any issues mounting the PH-TC14PE by following its installation guide. The fans provided by Phanteks are PH-F140s; they support PWM. These fans offer a maximum airflow of 88.6 CFM with PWM turned off and max out at 78.1 CFM with PWM turned on. The fan's mounting hardware has been placed into three separate bags.
The mounting hardware is rather straight forward. The left image has the AMD mounting bars on top and Intel's on the left, with the various screws and standoffs required for mounting the cooler on almost any platform. The image on the right shows that Phanteks has included everything necessary to attach three fans to their already massive PH-TC14PE.
