if you read (viewed) the snow white comp review on the corator, you will realize that is the same design a the D14 and made by a sister company to Noctua (both owned by the same people).

it is just made by a company with smaller overheads than Noctua - hence it being cheaper.
  • the fan is the same specs
  • the tower has the same number of fins and is the same height
  • it has the same number of copper pipes
  • it even uses exactly the same fixing brackets

everyone likes Noctua because 'the team' endorse it.

give the Coolink Corator a chance

Thats where I got the idea for this post, I knew they were relatively the same I just wanted to know if the D14 was worth £20-30 more than the DS, thanks for the in-depth reply buddy

Not being funny or anything buddy but dug was giving me advice on what he thinks, just because he has the DS and said give the DS a chance doesn't mean he's lonely I am sure a lot of other people have the DS, from the reviews the DS is a very good cheaper alternative to the D14.

I asked the exact same question a few months back, got told as well as the D14 being cooler, the fans on the Corator are in fact very loud.

I ended up with a D14, they're worth the extra money, I'd recommend looking for a cooler in the same category as the D14 at least.
