Phanteks PH-TC14PE Review

0

Back in 2007, a group of engineers with a passion for technology and 2 decades of experience in thermal solutions formed Phanteks.  They currently specialise in CPU coolers and fans and although the company is very young, don’t be fooled as their coolers have been generating a lot of hype and more importantly, have a reputation for being one of the hottest cooling brands around.

Their latest line has been attracting attention also, namely the PH-TC14PE for being available in a variety of different colours, which is useful if you want to colour co-ordinate your PC build.  That being said, I have one of these on my test bench today and I look to put some heavy load on it, namely from Intel’s latest CPU range, Haswell. (Socket LGA1150) Can it take the heat?  Or will it just fizzle out like a match in a freezer?  Let’s find out, starting with the specifications…
