The only gripe I had though was the metal fins corroded after handling it. It was very strange to see but the finish is completely shot on the outside fins and you can see finger prints over it. It's quite sad really since you'll likely have a windowed case if your getting such a nice cooler. To see the damaged finish is really upsetting. I'm not sure whether it's just that I have slightly more acidic skin PH or what, but I'd recommend getting some latex gloves just in case.
Other than that though, no problems what so ever performance wise, it works a treat. I'd definitely recommend it if you are looking for an air cooler!
If you are worried about ram clearance you will be absolutely fine, the NH D-14 leaves loads of room above the RAM slots and I don't even think you would need low profile RAM but make sure you install the RAM first before the cooler. The two fans that it comes with are extremely quiet and I am also very impressed with them.
As for the performance it doesn't fail to impress. My idle cpu temperatures are around 25 degrees Celsius and don't reach above 60 whilst at load. That's also with my i5 9600k overclocked at 4.7ghz on all cores. Overall a great experience as said in the title. The NH D-14 is still a beast and is probably up there with one of the best air coolers around and at such an amazing price you can't go wrong.
The only down side I can think of for this cooler would be the colour of the fans but that's not something I am bothered about at all. I have a dark tinted tempered glass panel anyway.
If you are wondering about my specs here you are
Case : Meshify C
Cpu : Intel i5 9600k
Gpu : Asus dual fan rtx 2060 oc edition
Mobo : msi mpg z390 gaming plus
RAM : corsair vengeance lpx 3200mhz
SSD : Samsung 850 evo 250gb
HDD : Seagate Barracuda 1TB
If you want PWM go for the DH15's though some users may experience more RAM clearance issues
On the plus side it does come with voltage adapters with built in resisters to force the fans to run at a lower RPM and generate less noise, I am currently using these and getting sub 30 degrees which doing basics taks on the PC and about 50-60 degrees in most games. I have also managed to over clock my i5-4690k to 3.9Ghz stable.
My system is people want ot check for compatiability:
- Case - Fractal Design R4
- RAM - 2133mhz G-Skill Ripjaws DDR3
- 970 SLI's
I've used them in the past and know all too well what to expect. Cool, quiet and truth be told a bit, well.... ugly.
It's big and you'll need a decent sized case to house it. It's also heavy and as you need to install it before putting it in MOST cases it can make plugging in your connectors tricky. I have big ham hocks and this'd can cause the drunken sailor to come out during a build. Get past that though and it's all good. Using the latest purchase on a 6700k skylake build, the whole accessory pack (including decent thermal compound) ensures you have everything you need no matter what CPU you use. The bracket design ensures you don't get uneven pressure across the face of the processor.
It's virtually perfect, tart it up a little and drop the 70's beige and it would be pride of place. Most modern motherboards have a fancy shell suit and stacks of bling, this can make the cooler look a bit out of place. For me it's all about performance not style so it's no big deal.
Buy it, you'll not regret it.
Tested on two profiles:
One is just plugging in the fans directly. The fans are not loud at all even when spinning at max speed! They bring out so much air from the case, it, exaggeratedly, could propel itself.
The second is plugging on the ultra-quiet extension cords on, that come along with the set, actually does make it very quiet indeed! It's just as silent as an Xbox One at full load, and that's saying something.
People may say it's an overkill heatsink, but I recommend this over the Hyper 212 Evo, or even the Corsair H100i.
Far superior in size, effectiveness and mounting equipment to my previous heatsink, though more expensive by a long shot. Good online guide for compatible RAM. I was concerned that my new motherboard would not leave enough clearance for my GPU. The fan mounting clips you can see in the main image on the heatsink only just left a 2-3mm gap, so it's okay. If I mounted it facing upwards with 3x fans, it wouldn't work. Don't be a dummy like me and screw it in before putting your RAM in.
The cooler is quite big though. I had to lose 2 Ram slots (16GB) to install it. I use the Corsair Vengeance Ram which are extra tall due to the cooling fins.
Gaming still without a hitch with the remaining 16GB.
I had to do some open heart motherboard surgery to get this thing in (had to take my board out but you may not have to depending on your case). It was worth the hassle.
Beware if you have memory dimms with big heatsink fins on them as this cooler reaches over the dimms on most boards.
With this Noctua my CPU will now run the same encode with 23 degrees C of thermal margin. I've even reenabled turbo core and it still stays well outside the 20 degrees c margin.
I can strongly recommend this product
After having a water cooled CPU and struggling to keep it running efficiently I purchased this as it had good reviews and the price impact was very minimal compared to the competition and alternative products.
The noise is absolutely minimal once running and although very large I know for certain there will be no struggling to keep my CPU cool. I have a Zalman midi case and it just about fit. Overall, I'm absolutely chuffed with this.
Excellent performance, running i5-4690K oc'd from 3.5GHz to 4.5GHz under full load it keeps it at 55-60 degrees which is over 10 degrees better than same config with my old Hyper TX3 EVO.
Had I've done my research properly before purchasing I might've opted for it's younger brother NH-D15 (which sports 2x14cm fans) but I'm impulsive buyer. In the end I regret nothing and I'm extremely pleased with it's performance.
I had to RMA my GTX 970 FTW and it was replaced with a GTX980ti SC+ ACX2.0+
As soon as I got the Card I thought I better monitor my temperature's so I used AMD Overdrive and MSI Afterburner and I realized something wasn't right straight away as I was reading in the region of 60C on my CPU using stock cooler
I purchased a Arctic freezer CPU fan and it only knocked off a few degrees and with my temp's spiking into the late 60C during games like Dark Souls 3, the Witcher 3 and Dragon Age Inquisition so I spoke to AMD technical support and they advised me not to run my FX8350 above 61C, So then I knew I needed a better cooling system
I was originally going to go with a water cooler but if something went wrong with that then my whole PC could've ended up in the bin and people I spoke to told me about the Noctua fans and recommended this, I looked at review's and comparison charts before taking the plunge and buying one of these
Installing it was a little tricky because my PC was already set up which can be a bit fiddly getting the brackets and back plate in place but it didn't take too long to Install, as soon as I booted my PC I ran tests on the same games, Dark Souls 3 was hitting no more than 29C, Witcher 3 35C, and Dragon Age Inquisition no more than 38C
The only problem I have with this is that with both fans attached to the cooler it will cover your ram slot's, you would be fine with low profile ram, all tho I don't and I use 16GB Corsair Vengeance Pro Ram 2x8GB sticks and the secondary fan catches them, I managed to resolve this issue by turning the unit around, this way I could run another 8GB stick of the same ram with room to spare, the only problem having the cooler this way around is that there's not even a Inch space between the cooler and the exhaust fan
My motherboard only has 4 fan connectors, 1 for exhaust, 2 for intake fans and the CPU fan, this unit comes with 2 fans each with their own connectors but included with the cooler is a V connector so you can run both fans through the same connection socket
Highly recommend this product
As far as fitting goes, it's really simple. It comes with easy to follow instructions, and the Noctua website has a really helpful video to watch if you're still not sure.
So far I'm getting really good temps, and have plenty of headroom to overclock.
One other thing that will strike you, other than the size, is the quality of the thing. You can just tell it's made to last (hence the 6 year warranty)
The one downside to this cooler, for me, is that the fans supplied are not 4-pin PWM. That would have really rounded off an otherwise quality piece of kit.
It's a very big cooler, so measure your case carefully before buying - as a rule of thumb, if the external width / height of the case is < 190mm, it won't fit. 200mm or more should be OK. I had to measure mine very carefully, as the case is 190mm, and the clearance is about 3mm between the side panel and the top of the cooler! Normal height RAM and copper heatpipes didn't provide any problem with clearance around the base of the cooler or fans.
It was really straightforward to assemble and install - as others have said, don't forget to plug the fan onto the mobo connector before installing the cooler! It is a beautifully engineered product, and a pleasure to work with. I have yet to be disappointed with any Noctua product I've bought.
