well id like to see a new version of this cooler..with true 4pin fans rated for max 1300rpm..100+cfm ..and if possable a little bit lighter..its not as heavy..but a little bit lighter would be great for those who worry..enable it with 6 or even 10 6mm heatpipes and i garantee there wont be an air cooler able to come close to this things power...and ive said before..a 110% flat mirror polished base..maybe an even easier way to mount than already..how about it doyllan..you seem to have good communication with them
Yeah, true PWM fans would be nice. Something in the 600-1500rpm or maybe 600-1800rpm for maximum performance when running high overclock benchmarks. I'm quite fond of 600-2500rpm cooler fans on cooler with 600-1300rpm case fans on same PWM signal. both are about 650-700rpm idle and full load is 1000rpm cooler with 900rpm case.. but if I want to go crazy it's 2400rpm cooler and 1300rpm case. wheee.gif

Why 6mm heatpipes? The 5x-8mm used now do very well.
post #1634 of 2766
ok then 8 or 10 8mm pipes:D

thumb.giftongue.gif:thumb:tongue.gif:thumb:tongue.gif:thumb:
1 thing that would also be good is if these fans of theres can do high airflow and high h20
from the ones I have..they don't move a lot of air..but are good static pressure optimized
got 1 in my cases front 5,25 bays as intake..does ok but I cant feel any air from it hardly..but must say I run it from fancontroller
1 thing also these are terribly loud when running full tilt...

my secondary setup was giving me a hard time till now..used the other fan that came with the cooler and ziptied it on side panel with a speed reducer adaptor..put it on so the gpu and NB his gets some flow over..for some reason when I had it running full speed the temps were higher
now full load the cpu on this setup runs max 45...max cores 49/50...gpu...50..mbo nb 62

sorry for posting it here
just realy want doyllan s opinion


@leylan..has phanteks rep contacted you yet?
I got a thank you from him after linking him to your post in this thread and asking him a few abrupt ?'s
post #1635 of 2766
commented before about base damage but didnt want take out heatsink to take pictures. (thermal paste is expensive)
got a 4930k so i took pictures while it was off.



do not expect or want rma. just for documentation on the forum

i dont mean the machining marks but the scratches and small dents

I just got home after getting bound in by the storms in the east haven't been on since my last response. I do have a message dated from the 2nd from someone that would appear to be phantek rep. Just replied to them so we'll see what happens. I made it all work but as I told him, knowing what I know now, I would have rma'd both the units, time just didn't allow. I know "stuff" happens sometimes but certainly a bit of bad luck run for me on them.

I wanted to confirm along with twistedspace here, that black one, the first one I got... its base was At Least that bad and yes not talking about the machine marks but the scoring and scarring like someone used it for a hammer or something atrocious. Like yours the center area of the black one I had gotten was fairly good and what you'd expect but until I saw the red one (2nd one I got) I didn't realize just how mangled the black is. That said... and the black one is in a build that at least during this winter is kept in a very cooled space its temps are running nicely. not sure how it will do under hard load or when winter gives way to summer. The red one didn't seem to have as good of temps but it was built in a different workspace and so likely different temps in the rooms. Despite my issues there are two very happy young men this Christmas. Thanks everyone and may the new year bring the best to you all.

Just ordered 2x Thermalright TY-147s and the Gelid PWM 1-to-4 Splitter. I was looking at the TY-143 but 2,500 RPMs scared me off. The color of the TY-147 is better with my build too.

I'm doing a new build. I replaced my venerable G.Skill Ripjaws with some G.Skill Trident X. I'm going to take the fin off of the Trident X and I hope that will allow my to put the second fan on my PH-TC14PE that sits over the RAM while also keeping the door fan on my Cooler Master Storm Sniper. With the G.Skill Ripjaws below the front fan on the PH-TC14PE, the fan sat too high on the cooler for me to keep the 200mm fan on the door of my case. Even after I replaced the 200mm door fan with a slightly slimmer BitFenix 200mm fan it still wouldn't fit.

I'm hoping that the Trident X with the fin off of it will be low profile enough for me to put a TY-147 above them and still keep my 200mm BitFenix intake on the door of my case. If it's going to work it's going to be very close!

Thanks to doyll and X-PREDATOR for all the help. thumb.gif

You are very welcome thumb.gif

Cooler and fan clearance with side fan all depends on how side fan and CPU placement interact.
  • TridentX: 54mm w/ fin; 39mm w/o fin
  • Fan 140mm + RAM 39mm + socket 2-3mm = 181-182mm motherboard to side cover.
  • CPU clearance (dependent on motherboard CPU socket placement) 165mm w/ side fan, 190mm w/o side fan*

@coelacanth...always a pleasure bro..u know yo can use a 120mm on front of this tower..the included tabs and clips works flawlessly ..then you can use the ty 140"s yo baught in middle and back for a nice low rpm 3 fan config for amazing temps...plus you don't have to remove the ram heatsinks then
