[Official] Phanteks PH-TC14PE News, Discussion and Owners thread - Page 182

post #1811 of 2766


My oreo. $40 shipped for the heatsink (new) and $8 for the fan PH-F140XP (used). Cooling a FX8150 inside a Corsair Air 540 with a 780 GTX strapped to a Prolimatech mk 26. Usually Don't see Over 42C load on the CPU, and 45C on the GPU.

I own 4 other of the same fans that I use on a Corsair h110. Love the quality Phanteks puts out there in their products!!

I do wish they had the top of the heatsink painted white, since all the fins and much of everything else is white.

If you have space on the side of you case, you can actually mount the fan a bit higher on the heatsink. It will be hanging over the top more, but I had to do this a small amount to accommodate my ram.

wow..nice setup..what fan is that in the middle?

well if hes talking gt typhoons..he just as well may go with 2/3 of them..no clearance issues then bro..im chaning over to a 3 way sp120's soon.as it is now..it works great ..but having identical fans just would be better for perf wise..ive got no issue there..but want a unified look.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Actual measurements:
Installed on Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R Rev 1.6 w/ i7 920 top of cooler is 165-168mm from motherboard.
Installed on Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 rev.1 w/ i7 980 top of cooler is 165-168mm from motherboard.
Top of cooler was not parallel to top of CPU / motherboard. wink.gif
RAM height above motherboard with 140mm fan is 28mm.

Using Crucial Ballistics Sport (30mm tall RAM) motherboard to top of 140mm fan is 173mm
With 120mm fan with top of cooler 165-168mm RAM can be 43mm

Well it wasn't made to be installed in there but I ended up getting the little black tabs to stick while I was sliding the fan in between, PH-F140XP.
Best part, Amazon had a blue heatsink "used" for $40. Took them 10 days to email me telling me it's not longer available. They offer to honor the price on the blue one, but it wasn't in stock while the white one was. I ordered 3 different heatsinks and had the same issue with them, but I can't complain now that I own the TC14pe for $40!!

hows the temps been so far..

ohh..at other op..gene z board guy...you can always install you gpu in the second pcie slot..that board will not have a perf hit..just make sure your cpu and bios is up to date for pcie.g3..even without this..itll run fine..then atleast no issues with space..ive seen this same board before even with two
gpus with crosfire ..so yeah its 50/50

I was having height issues too. I swapped the 140mm Phanteks fans for 120mm Cougar PWM fans. I am very happy.

Noctua makes amazing fans too.

Ran prime95 for about an hour at 1.25V, 3.6ghz no turbo core. Highest temp it reached was 45C.

When I CPU mine on the chip, I set the voltage to 1.1375, use 6 threads at 100%, 1 thread is 25% and the other is 50% and the temps hover around 37C. Power consumption from the wall dropped 40W when I undervolted it and took off turbo core, since it was running at 1.413V and hovering around 46C.

My z87-g45 has 3 way crossfire, 2 way sli. Using the bottom slot won't allow me to run SLI between two cards, have to go with the slot above where it's closer to the 1st gpu. So at least have somewhat of an awareness in regards to that.

Edit: Dropped the voltage stable to 1.175 and it will remain at 40C, this was continuous after the other hour of testing.
