As more and more CPU coolers appear in today’s market, the competition is fierce and looking for the right design can pose some challenges. The various options out there can make it hard to determine which cooler is the right one for you. Though many coolers are designed to look the same, not all are made to perform with exceptional thermal cooling power. Today we will be taking a look at the Phanteks PH-TC14CS-BK cooler. If you know the name Phanteks, it goes without saying that Phanteks makes some of the top performing air coolers on the market.

We have seen coolers ranging from small to large, some with exceptional thermal properties, others not so much. All of these coolers use the typical single or twin tower designs, proving that being typical isn’t always the best. The Phanteks PH-TC14CS-BK is anything but your typical CPU cooler design, the unique touches made by Phanteks really makes this cooler stand out. The Phanteks PH-TC14CS is designed in a horizontal position or in a “updraft floating balance”, where fans are mounted on the bottom and top of the cooler. Will this design provide better thermal performance or will this design hinder it? As we take a closer look at this cooler we will soon find out.
