Our today’s super-heavyweight fight has definitely been a success. It was exciting and unpredictable, and in some cases it was really hard to determine who the winner was. Although the overall results and the maximum conquered processor frequency...

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...

Despite its massive size, time-consuming installation and eyebrow-raising price tag, we couldn't help but like the Phanteks PH-TC14PE. It looks as good as it cools, which is fantastically well, and it's supremely quiet too, especially on its...

s Well, the Phanteks PH-TC14PE certainly had a target in mind. I won’t go so far as to say it is a copycat product, but it was almost certainly inspired by the success of Noctua’s NH-D14. To me, it appears that Phanteks sought out to...

The fans that ship with the Phanteks PH-TC14PE (orange) are 140mm in diameter and use a nine-bladed impeller with three small notches and vertical winglets on each blade. The manufacturer describes the bearings thusly; 'updraft floating balance...

With the introduction of the PH-TC14PE, Phanteks has positioned itself in a place that is hard to move upwards from. Why do we say this? Well, when your first product to market is one of the best in a particular category it is difficult to top its...

After seeing the performance results, the best way to sum up the Phanteks PH-TC14PE is that it is an outstanding cooler, second to none really, knocking the vaunted Noctua NH-D14 off the throne. This should come as no surprise based on the nearly...

After having the opportunity to handle quite a large number of heatsinks over the past couple of years, I've learned a lot about what works and what doesn't. I've had the opportunity to ponder and ask myself, "What if I were to take the...

In my position as a reviewer and one that gets to get his hands on just about everything case and cooler related, I am really torn with this review. On one hand, I sort of expect new companies to bring forward something completely new, not something...

Phanteks PH-TC14PE is a typical super-cooler with all features typical of a product of this class. It is very large in size, heavy, completely universal and expensive, but at the same time remarkably efficient and moderately noisy. If we do not take...

The Phanteks PH-TC14PE is a solid performing but massive cooler, and an awesome first offering to the cooling world. If you are in the market for a high end air cooler, and have a case that can handle it the put the Phanteks PH-TC14PE on the short...

Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Some say that the PH-TC14PE is a copy of another top flight cooler, but Phanteks happens to be an OEM manufacturer in the same part of the world. The PH-TC14PE certainly looks and, more importantly, feels of...

Right so I've got money on you all being here to see if we have a new king of cooling, well the answer is basically... No not in our testing. The Phanteks only really pulled ahead in the most extreme of tests. In the tests that load the cooler in...
