They are probably talking about the Phanteks PH-TC14PE


The H100 is very good ... but the fans are rather noisy at full speed

If you can't find the Silver Arrow ... then the D14 or H100 is the next best ... Phanteks is generally more expensive than the SA and D14 ...


I would really look into finding the price of a Coolermaster 212+/Evo ... I have seen many posts on this forum of people OC'in to 4-4.5ghz with them ...



And the only reason I mentioned looks is because if you have a window (which a lot of chassis' do now days) ... Even if something cools magnificently, if it looks like a pile of horse **** you may not be happy staring at it/other staring at it all day ... Performance is definitely better than looks ... but if you can have both ... Take both ...

Hahahaha, you're right... I do have a window and I'm imagining it all covered by a cooler...

I've found the price for the 212 plus : 40U$. But is it good? Because 40U$ against the 120U$ of the D14 is really weird...

you might be interested in going for something like an xspc rasa kit, it's usually about the same price as an h100, is quieter, and performs better

Hyper Plus OCN Group :: Give it a browse ... it is a budget cooler ... but it was for a very long time the best bang for your buck cooler ...

I'm seriously thinking about getting a Hyper 212 plus...
The reviews and numbers that I've seen so far left me impressed with its cost, over the other coolers costs.
