The Phanteks PH-TC12DX Cooler

One name always comes to mind when you’re talking about superior air cooling performance. That name is Phanteks. Phanteks has become the light and heavy-weight champion in the air cooling arena with high performance air coolers, like their PH-TC14PE. Phanteks is again entering the ring with a new middle-weight contender called the Phanteks PH-TC12DX. It's a single stack profile in a push pull configuration. The PH-TC12DX seems especially geared for those higher end rigs and gaming cases that offer very little space around the CPU area. Today will be looking at this new addition to the Phanteks family of coolers. It carries the same technologies we have seen in Phanteks' larger coolers, their special P.A.T.S. and C.P.S.C. technologies. The PH-TC12DX sports a smaller profile of just 126 x 57 x 157mm, a nickel plated copper block, four 6mm heat pipes embedded within the block, a blue, aluminum-finned heat stack and two 120mm white and blue PWM fans. All of this is packed together in a smaller footprint. Read on and let’s see if this middle-weight contender can pack a punch like its heavy-weight bigger brother.
