Phanteks PH-TC14PE cooler (updated version?)

Hello!

Are Phanteks updated their PH-TC14PE? It's look diffirent now, but i didn't founded how it's perform. Old version have got fins made of two parts and soldered to heatpipes in middle. On new version fins are made of one part and no soldering (at least i don't see it).

Here is pictures:

Old version

Here is the new one off the website.

http://www.phanteks.com/PH-TC14PE.html

I've got two of these coolers a few years ago and they look just like in the web picture. Mine doesn't have PWM fans I don't think ??? - but the cooler performed really well for my newbie sensible OC'ing.

I'm here to post another question and I saw your post.

I suppose if the manufacturing process has changed it may be better and more improved or worse with cheaper production and I can't say either way but they performed well.

In it's evolution the PH-TC14PE has gone from variable voltage fans to PWM fans (in first year), then to new PWM fans that are basically PH-F140MP in round housing and latest change is to 1 piece fins.

I tested newest version against original and found performance to be the same when both are using same fan/s.

On Phanteks official site last cooler picture is old. =) They may forget to replace it, but still (fins with two parts).

I really happy that you responded, doyll! So, it's mean that i have got latest version? My fans have got PWM (at least they have got four wires) and rear sticker on fan is made of... i am not sure... metal? Word "Phanteks" on it is convex, every letter. On box they have got name "PH-140F PWM Premium Fan".

Are you tested it with Noctua black fans (or maybe Corsair fans) with more pressure? I selected Phanteks as BEST air cooler and also it's black (since Noctua Black Edition ones still not ready).

P.S. I have plans to build black system (RGB-free) and use this cooler on my EVGA X299 Dark board with... well... i7-9800X CPU. It's scary to even think about it's 165W TDP. Most test i saw was with 140W TDP CPUs and i don't know how to predict which temp will be with +25W...

I tested with the new PH-F140HP II (same as PH-F140MP but cooler fan has round housing instead of square) and also with Thermalright TY-143 (becasue that is what I used in original testing many years ago). While results between coolers was not identical it was well within basic +/-0.5c margin of error commonly experienced when testing coolers.
