The measurement you posted above are bigger than the measurement I took from my case so you should be fine.... unless computer gremlin have figured out a way to make cooler gremlins enlarge their coolers. biggrin.gif

You can remove the crossbar screw if needed to go lower.

I removed mine.. but don't remove it until you have mounted cooler.. it holds the crossbar in place while you start the spring loaded mounting screws in the ends of it into base mount. I looked in my box of screws and found a nice little round headed screw that I put used in place of big stock knob screw. It's a normal thread for some component... HDD side mount screw or optical drive mount screw or HDD bottom mount screw. I have several more just like that came from surplus build screws. wink.gif

I find it hard to believe that I can fit something that is 140mm in a spot that is only 139mm big, if you know what I mean biggrin.gif .

You measured the cooler being 165mm tall with the fan in place, according to the user manual that's the maximum my case will allow, my measurements said 167 or more so I'm not too worried about removing it.

Well without having your case in front of me I can not tell you for an absolute fact that it will fit. I think it will based on what you've told me and what I've seen in other installs.

I understand you are worried if it will fit or not. I probably would be too if I was in your shoes.

But they are your shoes and you have to make the decision.

Edit: don't worry about the fan fitting. If cooler fits fans will fit. Worst case is you put second fan on back of cooler instead of front.

Does this cooler fit in an Antec SOLO II with standard DIMMs?

Phanteks states PH-TC14PE is 171 mm height (I guess with standard DIMM that's its fan in standard place). Antec states its case has 160 mm of clearance for CPU cooler. However Anand states it has 180 mm. If Anand is right, it does, but, case of Anand is wrong, can I use low profile DIMM to make room for cooler's fan in offset height?

Hopefully someone with you case can answer.

Yes, fans can be lowered so they are flush with top of cooler. Requires removing the screw with 13mm of knob on it in center of crossbar mount after cooler is installed or replacing it with a normal headed screw (which is what I did). All this center screw does is hold crossbar on cooler while it is being installed. Once installed crossbar is held down by the spring screws attaching to mounting base.

I have TC14PE in Fractal Design Define R2; with fan is over Crucial Ballistix Sport RAM and no problems Case spec is 165mm CPU clearance. thumb.gif

Does anyone here have their PH-TC14PE oriented in the north/south position or with the unit blowing air out of the top of the case?

I had mine vented out the top until just a few weeks ago.

I found no difference. There is no reason I can think of why there would be a difference other than airflow.

I vented out top because my back vent was a 120mm fan and of course cooler is 140mm fans. Top of R2 can have 2x 140mm vents if both sound dampening panels are removed. I used an exhaust duct from cooler to top vent.

Now I have removed the back vent grill, bottom vent grilles, modified front 120mm vents into 140mm fans and use Silverstone magnetic mounting filters over TY-140 600-1300rpm intake fans. Cooler has 2x TY-143 600-2500rpm fans. All fans are PWM controlled by mobo CPU fan socket using Gelid PWM fan splitter. Cooler fans idle at 660rpm while intake fans idle at 700rpm. Both run 800rpm. Cooler fans peak at 11000rpm with case fans running 900rpm. I have no real reason to have different cpu fans from case fans. Just like the red/orange of TY-143s and if I do a serious overclock may be able to use rpm above 1300. wink.gif
