Package and Hardware

Looking at the front of the Phanteks PH-TC14Cs CPU cooler box you can see the design is unique and gets right to the point. The Phanteks PH-TC14Cs is available in 5 different colors. At a glance you can see the specifications and contents listed along the side of the box.

Going around to the rear of the box you can see they have listed some of the cooler’s features which is great for understanding what this cooler is capable of.

On the top, they marked the box to easily identify which color of cooler is in enclosed. Having multiple color options available is a smart idea by Phanteks, and we would like to see other manufacturers follow suit.

Once out of the box you can see they have included the mounting hardware for both AMD and Intel set-up. Accessories for installation such as:

.2x PH-F140TS Premium Fans
.1x PWM External Adapter(Pulse Width Modulation)
.1x Hex Wench
.1x Y Fan Splitter
.1x PH-NDC Thermal Compound
.Phanteks PH-TC14CS User’s Manual (English/Spanish and German/French)

Including the Installation hardware for:

Intel Socket: LGA 2011/1155/1156/1366/775
AMD: FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2 (stock back-plate required)

 

Now let’s move on and take a closer look at the cooler.
