I prefer that. With the blue and red models, which are cheaper than the white, the paint on the heat sink doesn't quite match the paint on the fans. Aesthetically, I prefer the D14 bullets on top over the TC14PE plates. The plates themselves are fine, but I don't like thePHANTEKS PHANTEKS
screaming going on. The understated Noctua logo looks better to me.

One advantage to doing so much reading up on these behemoth coolers, I became aware of ram clearance issues and got Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP ram. They're shorter than the retention tabs... This hopefully will enable me to orient the TY 143s with longer axis vertical, to provide clearance for a side mounted 140mm fan. Even this way I think it will barely clear.
