As far as coolers go, the new mode from Phanteks is a relatively high-end model but not overly expensive, although the price does depend somewhat on the color of the fans.The name of the new cooler is PH-TC12DX. Unlike for other products, this name doesn't really explain much about the cooling device.
The short version is that the newcomer is a U-Type dual-tower heatsink equipped with two fans, one on either side.
The long version of the description delves into dimensions, special technologies, CPU support, pricing, etc.
First off, this is a so-called universal cooler. While it doesn't support all possible CPU sockets, it is compatible with a sufficient number of them that the adjective fits.
The complete list includes Intel LGA 2011, 1155, 1156, 1366 and 775 sockets, as well as socket FM1, AM3, AM3+, AM2 and AM2+ CPUs from Advanced Micro Devices.
One of the main assets of the cooler is the P.A.T.S (Physical Antioxidant Thermal Shield), which boosts cooling performance while defending the CPU from the heat generated by the South Bridge, GPU< north Bridge and other hot parts of a motherboard.
The C.P.S.C (Cold Plasma Spraying Coating Technology) is another asset, a “forming deposit that displaces heat onto corresponding metals at a quicker rate.”
Phanteks also chose to use fans with the UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) bearing. Both of them have nine blades (each) and MAFO (Maelstrom Air-Fort Optimization) drive system (airflow and dynamic balance).
Needless to say, PWM functions are part of the specifications sheet as well (allows buyers to set fan speed depending on how much people care about silence and performance).
Phanteks is shipping the dual-tower, dual-fan TC12DX, with its four 6mm copper heatpipes, with a price of $54.99 / 54.99 Euro. Using blue, red or black fans/heatsinks will raise the tag to $59.99 / 59.99 Euro.
