  • newegg Six Heatpipe Dual Radiator Design Providing more surface area, better heat-distribution, and superior airflow efficiency than conventional tower style heatsinks, the NH-D14’s six heatpipe dual-radiator design was developed to provide the ultimate quiet cooling performance in dual-fan mode.
  • newegg Dual NF-P14/NF-P12 Fan Setup The NH-D14 sports a premium quality dual fan setup consisting of Noctua’s award-winning NF-P12 (120mm) and NF-P14 (140mm) fans, both of which feature Vortex-Control Notches, SCD technology, and SSO-Bearings in order to achieve the perfect balance of performance and quietness.

5 out of 5 eggsAir cooling perfected.

Pros: OC a 6core to 4.7ghz on air and doesn't sound like a jet engine.
Easy as pie to clean.

Cons: Huge! (but it fits into a Fractal Mini with a few millimeters to spare)
Delicate due to weight.
Could be a tad quieter and better performance with newer NF Noctua fans with push static pressure better.

Other Thoughts: It's big... really big and a bit delicate due to its weight. There's a reason for that. It's one of the best if not the best air cooler I have used in multiple OC'd systems. Really, the best thing about it is it's so easy to clean. Take off the fans and draw a pipe cleaner through the vanes; spray some air and vac the dust. Poof, like new.

5 out of 5 eggsto the yo-yo who compared it to corsair h100

Pros: this is by far the Best CPU cooler i ever used.

Cons: My con is that your upset because a passive fan cooler is only 2 c lower than a Corsair H100 water block cooler.
My friend you will never find that day when your H20 cooler dried up and fried your expensive cpu,because this cooler will work at this Hi level for many years with out fail. No internal Liquid to evaporate,Ever.
I had 2 CPU's fry because a Corsair and a lepher H20 coolers did just that.

Other Thoughts: you dont get what this thing is made for, you invest one time and it works for years flawlessly.
Think your going to get - 100 K with a passive cooler, Nope. but protect your CPU for easily a decade, if you chose to keep it that long, this is your Boy.
I have one of these before I found this the other Best Cpu cooler I used was the Sunbean core contact. But Install Remove that was just terrible. This is the top of line of coolers.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cooling solution.

Pros: Silent, cold, reliable and easy to mount.
Great radiator area.

Cons: Beige.... this fans are as ugly as you can imagine.
It may not fit in a mid tower, just beware of it

Other Thoughts: If you actually buy this piece of heaven on earth, be sure to cable all your motherboard BEFORE you put the actual radiator (not the mount) on top of the cpu. Its huge and will make your wire placement a living hell

1 out of 5 eggsLove the fans, heatsink and mounting assembly - NO THANKS, tldr: destined for the junk bin

Pros: Fans are best in class. Decent temps, I suppose - comparative to H80I, IMHO much better bang for buck(even with the corsair being more pricey). Quiet. Can be used as a weapon?

Cons: Sheesh where to begin?
Why on earth Noctua decided to use two spring loaded screws with such a poorly thought out bracket system is beyond me. It took multiple attempts because I thought "it can't be this hard" and the instructions are poor, even for a cpu heatsink/cooler. One fold out page is all you get with basically "brackets go this way." Once verified and mounted, I was amazed at just how huge this thing is. Reading /seeing online/in box is one thing.. It literally has 1 mm clearance between it and the acrylic case window it nearly rests against.
Now humongous heatsinks are not a new thing, back in the day I had purchased a massive Zalman heatsink, sans fans which may have been nearly the same weight, but still dwarfed in size by at least a few mm on each dimension.
Ok, so actual performance-wise? With such stunning review score(why mine is so low, fyi, to bring down the ludicrously high average) I thought this thing would be a beast. I thought it would blow away the H80I or even the H100 I had before that. Did it? Not even close. The idle temp is 1-2c below the Corsair. This is after burn-in. After running stress tests for over an hour, still negligible difference on my i7 4790K, 2-3c lower than the corsair.
So while I wouldn't outright call the performance a hands-down "L" or con, the size of the massive beast with two of the best fans in the market leads me to believe the thing was designed/engineered poorly. If not, I would love if someone from Noctua would explain why they need so much surface area to cool only to reach on-par results as a decent closed-loop water cooling setup.
And also, why on earth they haven't upgraded to a decent mounting system. This is not the 90's. Corsair makes it a snap, you can as well Noctua.

Other Thoughts: My recommendation? Stay far away from this product for cpu cooling and buy a Corsair closed-loop system especially if avoiding case space creep and/or difficult installs. I have not tried other brands but have heard good things as well. Noctua has so far let me down in the heatsink department. I will continue to buy their fans and speak nothing but the best of them, in fact the H80I that is going back in this puppy's place will be provided cooling by them. Maybe that's why the reviews are so glowing for this "experiment" in how much space a cpu cooler can take up.

2 out of 5 eggsNoctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

Pros: Great Cooling
OC capable is huge

Cons: For the AMD Crowd this Cooler might be a bust you " HAVE " to have a Backplate for this CPU or you cannot install it period.

Other Thoughts: While this model provides a back plate for the Intel Sockets. Why doesn't they have one for AMD? As of right now I cannot install my New CPU cooler cause I do not have any screws to mount this with my motherboard backplate.

5 out of 5 eggsNext best thing to water cooling

Pros: This is keeping my CPU at 19C at idle after running at 70 % CPU usage for several hours max temp was only at 38C. it was easy to install.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I knew it was big when I picked this out. But I don't think anyone realizes how much of a monster this really is until it arrives. Had to remove the two case fans on the lid of my case to get the lid to close. Covers all the ram slots on my Maximus VIII Ranger mobo so I will have to remove it if I want to add or switch out the ram. But thankfully I did not have to remove the heat spreaders on my GSkill ram for this to fit as I have seen in other comments

5 out of 5 eggsNoctua Performs and Stays Quiet

Pros: We have the "C" version of this cooler which lays flat so that the fans are blowing downwards so they cool the voltage regulators and other components clustered around the cpu. Anyway, it's nearly identical to the "D" version here. For 2 years it has been cooling an old heat monster, namely the ol' 130-watt Core i7-965EE. Set up in an inexpensive Antec 200 case with 2 x 120mm front intake fans spinning at approx. 750rpm (half speed?) and a 120mm rear exhaust fan at 1200rpm, the Noctua keeps the Core i7-965EE cores idling at 32 C. - 36 C. Under load of, say, a full hour of intense gaming the temps. range from 54 C. - 58 C.

Using the L.N.A. adapters slows down the fan speed on the cooler and temps. rise about 3 C. at idle and about 4 C. under the gaming load. However, the Noctua running at full speed is quieter than the exhaust fan and the video card fan so there's no need to use the low-noise adapters.

Cons: Whether you choose the horizontal orientation "C" model or the stand-up "D" model beware of them partially overhanging one or more of your RAM memory slots. Try to choose RAM without tall heat sinks (or use pliers to snip off the top of the protruding heatsink so it fits under the Noctua!)

Other Thoughts: Basically, this full-size Noctua cpu cooler is the gold standard that other brands aspire to, and with good reason. It performs very well and runs very quietly. After 2 years of running 16 to 18 hours per day, our Noctua is as quiet as the day it was installed and cpu temps. are as cool as ever. If you buy a water-cooling cpu cooler that performs as well or better than the Noctua you will find that it probably costs more than the Noctua and is noticeably louder. All this makes the Noctua hard to beat.
