Hi everyone, I'm new here and have a question.

Not sure if this has been covered, but I have a new system I just finished building with an i7-3770k processor (Ivy Bridge) which runs a little hotter than Sandy Bridge. My case is an Antec Eleven Hundred that has a fan that blows air onto the back of the motherboard which I think is a great idea to cool down components more from behind.

However, the Phantek PH-TC14PE rear mounting plate is completely closed off and covers the CPU pins totally. I thought about drilling a large hole in the mounting plate that covers the CPU pins to allow fresh air to flow through hence cool the CPU more. Not drill enough to weaken the mount, but be more like other cooler mounting plates with that area cut out.

I don't have the PH-TC14PE cooler yet, but for those that have the cooler, do you think this is a good idea?

If you don't have a case with a fan to cool the rear part of the Motherboard, CPU, memory, etc..., then it probably wouldn't matter, but since my case does have a rear fan that is designed to cool the back, this is my idea.

Thanks for any advice or criticism.

Phantek PH-TC14PE closed Mount which can block air.

Corsair H100 Open Mount which allows air to cool better.

Phantek PH-TC14PE Open Mount Modification which allows air flow.

I wouldn't think it would be more the 1-2C if it was open, I just think its what has to be dealt with until Intel figures a way around the heat issue like the next revision of IB chips.

I doubt if it's more then .1-.5c difference.. if any. Mounting plate doesn't touch.. actually has gap.. so air movement is possible between mount and motherboard.

I didn't see that in the original post where it showed reviews. Thought I should link it. biggrin.gif

Thanks everyone for the responses.

@ Doyll, I didn't know there was a gap. I thought it was sealed. I may not have to do any type of modifications if there is a gap.

By the way, I just ordered myPhanteks PH-TC14PE in Blue that I have been wanting for $79 with free 2 day shipping (prime member). Amazon has a deal at this moment if anyone else is interested. It is only in the Blue model and since I bought mine, they have 8 left in stock.

Newegg has a promo code also to take $20 off with free standard shipping.

Just wanted to put that out there if anyone is interested.

I will post photos of my setup once I have mine installed and running.

Thanks again for the help.

Derrick

yeah. The mounting bracket has hard rubber mounts in corners.

7th picture down and it's even your color. wink.gif

When you install make sure the mounting bracket does not touch anywhere. I had to tweek my cases motherboard backing plate a couple mm. It was touching and causing 3 boots when booting system. wink.gif If you have an issue like this a thin piece of plastic or a piece of construction paper to insulate between case and mount.
