Phanteks PH-TC12DX Series CPU Cooler Launched

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 10 comments

Phanteks PH-TC12DX CPU cooler combines patented cooling technology and optimal airflow in an affordable package.

The new Phanteks dual tower heat sink features a U-shape fin design which descend into four copper 6mm nickel-plated heat pipes. The heat sink cover and fins are constructed of aluminum, and are offered in black, white, blue and red color options:

               



Moving away from Phanteks cosmetic options, the new heat sink uses a Physical Antioxidant Thermal Shield (P.A.T.S) to significantly reduce thermal damage and improve reliability. P.A.T.S is capable of withstanding extreme temperatures, while simultaneously deflecting heat radiating from nearby components. Phanteks takes heat dissipation a step further with Cold Plasma Spraying Coating Technology (C.P.S.C) which helps displace heat onto metal surfaces. Overall, these technologies are expected to drastically improve long term reliability.

The Phanteks PH-TC12DX CPU cooler includes two 120mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) bearing type fans, which feature a nine blade, MVB (Maelstrom Vortex Booster) design. The PWM fans run at 600-1800 RPM, with airflow ranging from 23 – 68.5 CFM.

The Phanteks PH-TC12DX CPU Cooler uses a SoliSku universal mounting bracket, which provides support for Intel LGA 2011/1150/1155/1156/1366/775 and AMD FM2/FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2 (with stock black-plate).

Available now in white for $54.99, while the blue, red, and black options are available for $59.99.

    I hope this is better than the TC14PE.

    I wonder how much they sanded their bottom. Some CPU coolers' bottoms look like they were sanded with a stone grinder, which obviously affects thermal transfer from CPU to the heatsink.

    That single tower rad makes it seem a lot similar to the Hyper212.
    Gonna search some benchies on this one, looks promising if the pricing is right, as it is with the Hyper

    well if they are priced decently 30-50usd then they should sell well as they are aesthetically pleasing. I think they should have fans with a different color than white as a frame though to match black cases better.
