Phanteks PH-TC14CS CPU Cooler Review

Review Score:
13 Flares 13 Flares ×

Phanteks are a relatively new brand to the high end air cooling market but are certainly a force to be reckoned with.  We tested their first CPU cooler, the PH-TC14PE a few months back and it achieved great results, beating the almighty Noctua NH-D14 in our temperature tests.  So we were very excited when Phanteks offered us a sample of their latest high-end CPU cooler.

Today we are going to look at the PH-TC14CS CPU cooler from Phanteks.  It’s clear that there are a few key design similarities with the PH-TC14PE but the fundamental design of the cooler is very different.  The PH-TC14CS uses a C-shaped heatpipe design so that the fans can blow downwards towards the CPU socket.

In our tests, we will be comparing the Phanteks PH-TC14CS with the Be Quiet! Shadow Rock TopFlow.
