According to their website Phanteks have been in the cooling business for 20 years, though obviously not the enthusiast market as the PH-TC14PE seems to be the first cooler to undergo a trip through the review circuit.  It is one to keep an eye on as the reviews have been quite positive.  It is a dual tower design which allows the use of two 140mm fans, which are included with the heatsink.  It weighs in at 1250g when the two fans are attached and stands 159mm x 140mm x 171mm so you will not be sticking this into an mATX case but it is shorter than some competitors models.  OCC was blown away by the effective performance of this air cooler and were also impressed at the four available colours of heatsink and matching fans.

"When the results from the first test I ran (Overclocked Load) started to take shape, I could only describe the look on my face as "WOW". In disbelief of these numbers demolishing the NH-D14, I grabbed my infrared thermometer and checked the floor next to the computer (to verify ambient temperature) — it was right where it was supposed to be. I looked back at the RealTemp display and stared at the temperatures for the next few minutes (after already running for 45 minutes), and they didn't budge. This cooler has thrown up some astounding results and has blown me away."
