Phanteks PH-TC14S CPU Cooler Review

Installation
Getting the PH-TC14S installed is extremely easy and you should be able to install it inside of your case unless your case does not have a CPU cut out on the motherboard tray. We will be installing this cooler on our X79 setup so this will be the socket 2011 installation. The first thing that you need to do is install the four socket screws into the LGA2011 socket like you see below.

Once those are installed you will need to install the mounting plates. You need to orientate the plates how you want the cooler to go inside your system. The way I have them below is so the fan on the cooler will exhaust towards the back of my case. If you install the mounting plates the opposite way that will set the fan to exhaust towards the top of your case. There are actually three different mounting holes on the mounting plates, make sure you check the manual to see which is the correct one for your processor. The mounting plates are secured by four thumb screws.

Next go ahead and install the included the thermal paste on to your CPU. Then remove the fan from the center of the cooler. Now take the cooler and place it on top of your CPU lining up the pegs on the mounting plates with the screws. Once you have everything lines up go ahead and secure the cooler by screwing it in.

Finally go ahead and reinstall the fan and you are good to go. I was able to do the entire installation inside of my case with my graphics card installed. You can also see there are no clearance issues and wouldn’t be even if I had larger memory modules.
