Performance charts from that review: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/phanteks_ph_tc1... The Phanteks is the best air cooler around, at the moment, it seems. Reply to DJDeCiBeL m 0 l mopar_kid August 19, 2012 1:39:25 AM Thats the PE not the ES. I cant fit the PE, and the case I'm using is a HTPC that features a 140mm hole on the lid thats directly above CPU that will greatly take advantage of an up-draft cooler. http://picturepush.com/public/8721055 Reply to mopar_kid m 0 l Related resources Noctua NH-D14 vs Noctua NH-C14 - Forum Noctua NH-C14 vs Thermaltake FRIO OCK - Forum Phanteks PH-TC14CS Cooler - Forum Noctua D14 + a third fan vs Phanteks PH-TC14PE - Forum Phanteks PH-TC14CS Ram compatibility - Forum Can't find your answer ?

I actually don't know much about either the CS OR C14, honestly. A review on the CS, though: http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/4683/phanteks_ph_tc14c... And a review on the C14: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Noctua/NH-C14/6.html Reply to DJDeCiBeL m 0 l slashvalintino March 2, 2014 1:35:22 PM I'm sorry to necro an old thread but i have used both coolers, from my experience as far as sound goes they are the same. The phanteks one looks better but is really a pain to install, and it has less radiator surface so its not quite as good thermally. The Noctua is easier to install and has massive cooling capability, but it is about $20 more, totally worth it in my opinion.
