Phanteks has announced two new CPU heat sinks to join its product line-up: The low-profile PH-TC12LS and the dual-tower PH-TC14S.
The PH-TC12LS is designed primarily for HTPCs. Standing at only 47mm tall (74mm with the F12oMP PWM High Static Pressure fan that it ships with), it is a great option for systems housed in chassis with very limited room inside. Despite its small size, the PH-TC12LS is designed to withstand up to 200°C. It’s a spectacular claim, to be sure, but Phanteks’ P.A.T.S. technology and the PH-TC12LS’ six 6mm C-type nickel-plated heatpipes will do their best to meet it.
Phanteks’ new low-profile cooler ships with the new seven-blade PH-F120MP. As previously mentioned, it is a high static pressure design. It is designed to optimize the slim aluminum stacked fins on the PH-TC12LS.
The dual-tower PH-TC14S, meanwhile, is an evolution of the company’s award-winning PH-TC14PE. The principal difference between the two dual-tower coolers is that the new PH-TC14S is a slimmer physical package. The PH-TC14S is designed to eliminate space conflicts with tall RAM heat sinks and VRM modules in modern motherboards. Like its PH-TC12LS sister, the PH-TC14S also sports six 6mm nickel-plated heatpipes and slim aluminum fins to do the job. Also like its sister, it also uses P.A.T.S. technology to help it do its job most effectively.
The PH-TC14S stands 6.3 inches tall and is 2.83 inches wide, which conforms to Intel’s Keep-Out-Zone specs (which defines the space around the CPU socket to ensure the best compatibility with CPU cooling equipment). It ships with the PH-F140HP II PWM seven-blade fan.
Phanteks says both of its new CPU coolers will be available starting December, 2014. MSRP for the PH-TC12LS is $39.99, while the PH-TC14S will be priced at $49.99.
