[Official] Phanteks PH-TC14PE News, Discussion and Owners thread - Page 75

post #741 of 2766
Can anyone confirm whether a TC14PE will fit in a Corsair C70 without any problems? I've seen some very nice pictures on the C70 Owners thread with one in place (be it with the side panel off), but have also read that the C70 has an official clearance of 170mm whereas the TC14PE has a total height of 171mm including the fans. Seeing as the heatsink itself is 160mm tall is getting around this just a matter of lowering the positioning of the fans a bit, or is that more difficult than it sounds? Really don't want to order one only to be disappointed!

Planning on using a Gigabyte motherboard (probably a GA-Z77X-D3H) and Corsair Vengeance LP sticks so hoping that RAM clearance shouldn't prove to be an issue if I do have to lower the positioning of the fans a bit.

I am also interested in finding this out as I just recently received my Corsair Vengeance C70. Will be purchasing a MSI Z77 MPower motherboard at the end of the month. Already have G.Skill Sniper ram (4 x 4GB) waiting and hope there is no clearance issues either.

I use regular Vengeance RAM that I took the heat spreaders off of. I have no clearance issues with the cooler, so with Vengeance LP you should have no Problems. This is with the UD5H motherboard.

With the case, however, I have a Fractal Design Define R4, so I wouldn't know how well it would fit in the C70.

Hi, Im from Indonesia, sorry if my english is not good.
first of all i want to ask you, now im in confusion to choose Phanteks PH-TC14PE or H100i, why all of you here choose phantek than h100i (in addition to the cost!) ?

and then if I using mobo MSI p67-c45 and RAM viper3 intel master extreme series, it would be fit with phanteks?
I found some rumor that phanteks is not fit with heatsink of Mobo like asus Z77 (I forgot the series).

next if my PC is blue screen or erros becauses my ram, or my dim slot is error and I want to change ram to another one slot dim, it will difficult to move it? because RAM will closed or blocked with huge hetasink of phanteks biggrin.gif.

sorrry if the last question is out of topic, just wanna ask. which is better
Gskill DDR3 PC12800 8GB SR2 Dual Channel F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2 or
Patriot DDR3 Viper 3 Intel Series Dual Channel PC17000 8GB CL11 - PVI3 8G 213 C1K or
Gskill DDR3 PC12800 8GB XL Dual Channel F3-12800CL9D ??
daily use for gaming only and i7 runs on 4.5ghz wink.gif

thankyou guys smile.gif

Hi OkkyDokkie and welcome to the forum.

Corsair have lots of people returning coolers with all kinds of problems.
Water cooling in much more complicated than air.. There is only the fan to go bad on an air cooler.
Phanteks TC14PE will cool about the same as H100i and is much quieter.
Change the TC14PE to fans as loud as H100i fans and it will be cooler.

TC14PE will clear 47mm ram for sure. Maybe more. My cooler is 50-52mm above mobo. Most RAM slots are far enough away from CPU so there is no RAM clearance problem. and if you have problems with RAM (almost never happens) and it is under cooler it's really not hard to remove and remount cooler. To remove/test RAM for a BSOD kind of problem you don't even need to reapply TIM. Just put it back on and it will be fine.. just don't run CPU intensive programs. wink.gif Sorry, I don not know how tall Patriot Viper 3 Intel Extreme Masters Memory RAM is.

I would worry more about being able to put the front 140mm fan on top of tall RAM.. because 140mm (fan) + 28mm - 52mm (RAM height) = 168mm - 192mm motherboard to side panel clearance. Many cases have 168mm - 175mm. Not many have more than 175mm.

The Phanteks PH-TC14PE CPU cooler I purchased from did not come with a PWM adapter (despite advertising the fact it did with the retailer).

I have tried to contact Phanteks numerous times without reply via email. What is the best way to get a response from these people?

Best regards,
Chris.

Where are you on our big blue marble? Phanteks has 2 main websites.

http://www.phanteks.com/01/requestform.html
you can select RMA or PWM.. you want PWM.

If you have already done this try emailing them
http://www.phanteks.com/01/Contact.html
select the support department.

If that doesn't work let me know because they have always been very good and prompt with me.

Hi guys,

Just got one of these coolers but it feels like im getting higher temps than i should. I've reseated a couple of times, done the screws as tight as they can go but still temps are the same. When i touch the heatsink its possible to move it slightly so that the unit moves a tiny bit, despite all the screws being tight. Is this normal? I'm not talking much, but it does seem strange.

Running prime small fft i was getting max temp of 66c with a 2700k @4.5ghz with HT on and 1.25 volts.

At an extreme overclock of 5ghz @1.416 volts im seeing these temps after 10 mins of prime.





Does that look correct? I was surprised to see it go up to the mid 60's running prime at 4.5ghz when the volts with only 1.25.
