Phanteks Also Announces the TC14S Slim Dual-tower CPU Cooler

Phanteks announces the release of the PHTC14S. A slim dual tower CPU cooler designed from the concept of the award-winning PH-TC14PE. The PH-TC14S incorporates the dual tower and performance from the PH-TC14PE but in a slimmer form. PH-TC14S's slim form elminates any conflicts with high RAM and VRM modules in newer motherboards. The six 6mm nickel plated heatpipes with the slim aluminum fins improves heat distribution and creates better thermal convection resulting in immediate cooling.

Standing only 6.3 inches in height and 2.83 inches in width, the PH-TC14S follows INTEL's Keep-Out-Zone. Thanks to the slim design, compatiblity issues of high RAM and VRM modules are non-exsistent. PH-TC14S uses Phanteks' patented P.A.T.S. technology which has been proven to withstand high temperatures and increases cooling performance by deflecting thermal radiation from other heat sources.
The PH-TC14S includes the new seven blade PH-F140HP II PWM High Static Pressure fan with MVB II. The PH-TC14S also comes with the Solisku Bracket, a easy to install bracket that allows for a direct contact with the CPU and compatible with AMD and INTEL sockets.

Pricing and Availability
Available at most local retailers in December, 2014; the recommended retail price is US $49.99.

If it is as efficient as it looks good I'm sold.

I expect that this is a medium performance tower cooler. It will appeal to those who for some reason don't know that top mounted heatsinks on DDR3 RAM is unnecessary and a waste. The unfortunate part of the U shaped design which has been around for some time is that only one side of the cooler gets the cool air for cooling. The other side gets pre-heated air which lowers the performance of the cooler. In addition the types of fans used for typical HSF coolers do not suck air well but they blow air OK. Thus the in side of the fan when center mounted is restricted by the actual cooler heatpipes and fins before the fan can even try to suck air in to blow across the other side of the cooler.

This looks really nice, I would love to see some performance numbers from this as I may pick one up myself.

I was thinking about that as well. I wonder how it would compare to the cooler I have now.

Yes, the fin area is quite small. It will serve a niche for systems that absolutely cannot have overhang on two sides of the socket, otherwise there are going to many better performing heatsinks.
