doyll, you are looking at "Distance to TJ Max". Look at "Maximum"! it's a 8,5°C difference.

Hey guys, how does this cooler compare to to Noctua NH-D14? I can get a Phanteks off of someone I know or a D14 complete with fans and everything else, but the Phanteks is missing both fans. Are there any 120mm fans that you can get that would have similar performance to the stock fans?

In my readings before getting my Phanteks, it beat the D14 by a degree. Both in stock configuration. Fan selection can improve performance some. Should be noted that the Phanteks uses two 140mm. D14 uses one 120mm and one 140mm. I think the D14 is good but the Phanteks is slightly better and looks great doing it.

The looks are subjective so the choice is yours. Either will work great.

Phanteks is only slightly better than D14.. like maybe 1c. Reviews show about 1c increase in cooling for each additional fan used.... 1, 2 and 3
http://www.vortez.net/articles_pages/phanteks_ph_tc14pe_cpu_cooler_review,13.html
Phanteks with 1 fan = 52.75c, 2 fans = 51.75c, 3 fans = 50.75c.
Noctua NH-D14 with 1 fan 55c, 2 fans 52.25c so 0.5c warmer than Phanteks.

White, Red, Orange & Blue tests:
0.5c better here
http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=2671&page=5
.
0c difference here
http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=2670&page=5

0.1c better here
http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=2669&page=5

.3c worse here
http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=2672&page=5

And it's not the color that makes the difference. Re-mount same cooler 4 times and you will get the same kind of difference.


If you can only afford 1 fan on Phanteks you will be .5c warmer than D14



You could use 120mm fan but why would yo want to when stock fans are 140mm?
140mm fans I would suggest are:
Thermalright TY-140 is what I'm using.
Thermalright TY-141
Thermalright TY-143 is my favorite but not yet available.
Akasa Apache Black AK-FN062

There are lots more good fans. Ask one of the fan gurus, then look in forum for sale and you might get lucky. I research and find what I want and quit. Way too much happening to try and keep up with.

If you get the Phanteks make sure you get the fan clips and little black fittings that go in mount holes in fans.

I took one of the fans off, due to not being PWM. I ran all 3 on full speed, and it's just too loud for my tastes. When I use the PWM adapter, on two fans, I can switch on the fly between silent, and turbo, using ASUS Fan Xpert. I did get two adapters with my Phantek 140mm fan, but I believe those are silencer adapters. Does newegg sell a PWM adapter?
