Phanteks PH-TC14PE fan questions

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So, the stock fans from my Phanteks PH-TC14PE were really loud, practically jet engines, but worked really well, so I kept them for the longest time. However, I want to take my 3770k up to 4.8gHz 24/7 and passive cooling won't cut it anymore. From my initial viewing, it looks like the PH-TC14PE uses 120mm mounting holes, but up to 140mm fans. While I love the look of Corsair SP120s, their performance is... not impressive. I've been looking at the Noctua NF-A15 PWM, which uses the 120mm mounting holes. What can you tell me about the mounting/fan support of the Phanteks PH-TC14PE, and of the Noctua NF-A15. Initially, I will buy one fan, but in a week or so, I'll buy two more to max out my cooler. If there are other fans that will perform just as well, but aren't, well, brown, please recommend them. Thanks for any info!

Xbitlabs used AF140s on their Phanteks but I'm not sure if they perform better thermally , it's probably better acoustically only.

Just like all the previously reviewed cooling systems, the new NZXT Kraken X40 will compete against the best air cooler out there - Phanteks PH-TC14PE. However, instead of the two default fans that are not particularly quiet we topped Phanteks heatsink with two Corsair AF140 fans:



According to our preliminary tests, this modifications barely has hardly affected the cooling efficiency of this cooler, but has dramatically improved its acoustic performance. Nevertheless, the noise graph below will also have the curve for the Phanteks PH-TC14PE with the default fans for your reference.

You might be able to get away with TY-145s (black and white TY-140s) or TY-147.

As for the super-coolers tested in our today’s review, Phanteks PH-TC14PE is indisputably the best one in pure efficiency, but it has a very serious drawback – it is the noisiest cooler of the five tested today. Ideally, Phanteks PH-TC14PE should be equipped with two quiet Thermalright TY-140 fans, then it will have absolutely no competitors among air coolers of any kind.

To be perfectly honest for 4.8GHz (or above 4.6GHz) on Ivy Bridge you will likely need to delid to get decent temps.

Actually the TY-141 and TY-145 are same but in black/white.
TY-141 and TY-147 are same but in black/white.
TY-140, TY-143 & TY-147 have same blade design.
TY-141 and TY-145 are same blade design.
TY-141, TY-143 & TY-145 are ball-bearing.

thanks for clarifying this smile.gif

I never understood the need for so many different numbers, they could've just put a B at the end like TY-140B for black&white.

edit: funny thing is that was listed in the post I linked to by you, just a while ago doh.gif

When the TY-145 & TY-147 first came out I sometimes got them mixed too.

Should have said the TY-143 is on steroids, ball-bearing in red/orange; 2500rpm 130cfm. But if you run in below 1300rpm it sounds and performs the same as the others. The extra 1200rpm is why the SA SB-E Extreme cools 7-8c better than standard SA SB-E

Apart from the fans and the paint job, the SB-E Extreme appears to be the same cooler as the regular version.

Silver Arrow SB-E, Silver Arrow SB-E SE & Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme are same cooler. The only difference is the fans.
