    Impressive. Although I would've probably choose a Noctua D14 over this

    i think it looks nice. they don't even look alike. unless you are talking about twin towers then every cooler is the same. lol. wow the silverstone is pretty good. nice job.

    Re: Reviews - Phanteks PH-TC14PE

    Hexus, I take issue with this review because you have only the only "similar" air cooler that you have mentioned is the be quiet! dark rock pro 2.

    No mention anywhere of either the noctua nh-d14 nor the thermalright silver arrow, despite them both being of a similar/lower price and both being a two tower cooler with 2 fans (hell minus the fans the phantek heatsink looks like a total ripoff of the noctua heatsink, just with colour, which makes it very aesthetically appealing).

    My point is that you are distorting the performance of this cooler by not fully displaying the competition it has to face (for example we know that the nh-l12 is a low profile cooler and therefore will be nowhere near as good as a dual tower heatsink).

    To succinctly end my post, what I want to say in essence is:

    Let this heatsink pick on someone its own size.

    A good heatsink, for any fan who wants to do some overclocking.
    It is quite short for a +4 Ghz 24/7 OC.

    But I must say that is one of the best market heatsinks.

    Re: Reviews - Phanteks PH-TC14PE

    Apparently these fans, are basically Noctua fans, except a little bit different, and different colors. I like that. xD
    I would use Noctua fans 100% of the time if they changed the dang color to something more presentable.

    Re: Reviews - Phanteks PH-TC14PE

    Fitted a set of these too a system at work this week, used 3 fans on a overclocked 920 running at just under 3.9ghz temps refused to get above 45 but omg it's so much louder than my own D14 setup
