Quoted from Phanteks PH-TC12DX Reviews:Check out these quotes from Phanteks PH-TC12DX reviews & previews
"The Phanteks PH-TC12DX is a fantastic looking CPU cooler and we really think its high build quality and refreshingly vibrant and colourful aesthetics are its main selling point. Despite having very high quality fans, and a highly compatible design we can’t help but feel the Phanteks PH-TC12DX is let down by relatively mediocre performance that sees it outperformed by much cheaper competitors. The Phanteks PH-TC12DX is by no means a bad product and I think this CPU cooler should still be popular, and rightly so given how awesome it looks. Yet performance lets it down and in my eyes that means it doesn’t get an award from us today."
"These two designs may not be ground breaking, but they are solid, robust CPU heatsinks which look great and offer up excellent cooling potential at every clock speed level. If your budget can afford either, both the TC14PE and TC12DX will likely meet your needs. The ultimate choice between the two will ultimately come down to what is most important for a given system: stock performance or stock noise output. If you want one of the best low noise solutions available, the larger TC14PE will be right up your alley, whereas the smaller 12DX will satisfy all but extreme overclockers in its stock configuration."
"A must have for mid-range users who want an attractive CPU cooler that offers well-balanced performance and doesn’t break the bank."
"When you look at the cooling performance delivered by Phanteks' cooling solutions, it's not hard to see how it achieves its cooling goals. Using P.A.T.S.(Physical Antioxidant Thermal Shield) technology to keep radiant heat from impacting cooling performance and C.P.S.C (Cold Plasma Spraying Coating Technology), to improve the thermal transfer between the copper heat pipes, the base and fin array, it has found a way to make a better cooler. When you start pushing more air, cooling solutions tend to get louder. Phanteks uses UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) bearings and MAFO (Maelstrom Air-Fort Optimization) on its PH-F120HP PWM fans, to push almost 70 C.F.M. of air, at less than 28dBA. Add in the rubber isolation points on the fan and cooler, and you have a cooler that is quiet enough that it cant be heard outside the chassis while gaming. Phanteks has put together a package that works, is not loud, looks good and will keep your processor cool."
"If you are a fan of Phanteks, you will be proud of the TC12DX. It surprised us how smaller it is. This assumption is mostly due to the size characteristics of the TC14PE and the TC14CS which we have also tested. Where some may have issues with mounting the larger coolers thee problems should not exist with the TC12DX."
