Phanteks is a company which entered the CPU cooling market suddenly a few months ago and managed to surprise everyone with their PH-TC14PE super tower cooler, which competed and even outperformed the most popular products from well-known manufacturers...

It’s sad but this test session is incomplete just because the Phanteks PH-TC14CS turned out to be but one half of a super-cooler both from a technical standpoint and in actual performance. The small total effective cooling surface of its heatsink,...

The Phanteks PH-TC14CS surprised us. It is a wonderfully manufactured CPU cooler, with the advantage (over the tower coolers) of helping to cool all the components around the CPU, including the memory modules. It is not, however, a “slim” cooler,...

When considering a case fan, typically, there are two important factors: Airflow (CFM), and noise (dB). If you’re a water cooler, you’ll also be interested in Static Pressure (h2o reading in mm). The PH-F140TS pushes an excellent amount of air whilst...

Phanteks second offering to the world is a very quiet, solidly built cooler. The cost of the PH-TC14CS may be a little higher than some will want to pay....

The PH-TC14CS is an impressive cooler but it needs to come down in price before we would recommend it over the...

Well folks, Phanteks has done it again with its lower-profile PH-TC14CS heatsink. Coming in at about $20 cheaper than the larger, dual tower PH-TC14PE, it provides similar performance numbers and requires a notably smaller height requirement. During...

Up for review today is another CPU cooler, this one is the latest and greatest from a company called Phanteks. I've not had the pleasure of reviewing their products before so this is a treat for me. The cooler is the PH-TC14CS_RD where the RD means red,...

Sometimes we go into a review of a product not thinking about who that item is really intended for. Much of my thinking was that since Phanteks had produced one of the best coolers we have ever tested, the TC14CS would be close in performance. Well...

There’s no denying that when I first received the dual tower PH-TC14PE from Phanteks, it was a cooler to marvel at and the performance was thankfully reflective of my initial impressions. So when I first came across the top down PH-TC14CS, there was...

The Phanteks PH-TC14PE turned out to be one of the highest performance air coolers around, and I've been eager to hear again from the manufacturer. While I was expecting for a slightly smaller version of the TC14PE, a top-down cooler like this is...

Starting with performance, I'm going to have to say that the PH-TC14CS is definitely a strange, but ultimately is among the top coolers we've tested to date. Why was it quite strange? Well, whereas most coolers start to falter as temperatures rise, the...

First things first…you need to realize that the Phanteks PH-TC14CS is very much a specialized CPU cooler. It is not a standard tower and has a very specific target audience and usage. It is aimed at the user looking for a lower profile cooler that...

International Review By PC-Max on

Mit dem PH-TC14CS ist Phanteks auch der zweite Kühler hervorragend gelungen. Für ein Modell mit relativ platzsparenden Maßen bezüglich der Höhe, kann der Kühler mit einer sehr guten Kühlleistung glänzen. Insbesondere mit nur einem, unten angebrachten,...

International Review By LaptopWorld DK on 50

Jeg var meget optimistisk med denne køler, grundet dens størrelse. Men det viste sig at jeg blev ret skuffet. Ikke en gang 4,5GHz kunne den klare, hvilket jeg synes er dårligt.Ydelse – 02 (E)Her skuffede den. Jeg havde som minimum regnet med at den...

O Phanteks PH-TC14CS nos surpreendeu. Ele é um cooler muito bem feito, com a vantagem (em relação aos coolers em torre) de ajudar na refrigeração dos componentes em torno do processador, incluindo os módulos de memória. Ele, porém, não é um cooler de...

Печально, что так сложились сегодняшние тесты, но мы старались выжать из новинки максимум, а она в результате оказалась лишь половиной суперкулера как в технологическом плане, так и в плане эффективности. Недостаточная площадь радиатора, нетипично...

International Review By InfoMods on 95

Comme son premier ventirad, Phanteks avec son PH-TC14CS nous fournis encore un ventirad de tout premier plan. Pour le moment Phanteks fait partie des ventirads les plus performants. Côté performances, le PH-TC14CS montre toutes ses capacités quand la...

В конце прошлого года Phanteks представили свой кулер PH-TC14PE, который имеет очень удачное соотношение цены и производительности. Недавно компания представила младшую модель под названием PH-TC14CS, которой и посвящается данный обзор. В PH-TC14CS...
