5 out of 5 eggsQuiet, cool, durable

Pros: Whisper quiet, keeps my i7 4790K at 25C at idle. The hottest I've ever gotten it is around 50C under heavy gaming. Haven't attempted an overclock yet but I have no doubt I could. Absolutely satisfied. Installation was a breeze but I put it on the motherboard before installing the board in the case. Its huge but if you have the case space to swing it by all means do so. It fit very comfortably in my CM Storm Stryker but keep in mind that's one of the biggest full ATX cases around.

Cons: So far none. The brown color isn't the most pleasing but with excellent performance like this I couldn't care less!

Other Thoughts: Excellent product, will certainly buy Noctua in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsCool & Quiet

Pros: Extremely easy to install. Fan has a special clip that allows it to be attached to the cooler for easy installation and removal. My 4790K idles at 30C and never goes past 60C at full load. Build quality is fantastic and it includes some nice thermal compound.

Cons: You may have RAM compatibility issues on some LGA 1150 boards if you have ones with large heat sinks.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler

Pros: I'm normally on a custom liquid loop. This cooler is temporary until my parts come in. I'm particularly picky about temperatures and noise. This cooler works very well for its size. On an X-99 Deluxe with two fans equipped, no RAM slots are blocked. I have a 5930k @ 4.5ghz/1.2v and this cooler keeps my max CPU temp at 52c during heavy gaming sessions. Please note, I did swap out the Noctua fan for two Phantek PH-F140MP. I also have a fan profile set to stay at 35% below 40c and ramp up to 70% at 50c.

All in all, this tower works very well and comes with hardware for mounting a second fan. It also comes with mounting hardware for LGA2011-3, which isn't much to say, as the socket is a very simple one.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works well

Pros: The product does what it is meant to do and keeps my CPU cool. I pair this with the MX-4 thermal paste and I am happy with the results. No the fan is a bit loud but nothing unbearable.

Cons: A bit loud. Nothing to dock an egg over.

4 out of 5 eggsNoctua NH-U14S vs Zalman CNPS9700

Pros: At idle and normal use it cools quite well.

Cons: I found the Zalman 9700 preformed better for overclocking. I replaced the Noctua with my Zalman once I saw the temps.

4 out of 5 eggsmATX Fitment

Pros: Quality build and QC.
Ultra-smooth contact surface.
Super-quiet.

Cons: Massive.

Other Thoughts: Did not fit my ASUS z97M-PLUS / EVGA GTX 970 FTW combo. Only way it would fit is if I positioned the fan to point towards the side of the case. That position would take up the first DIMM slot and airflow would not be optimal.

5 out of 5 eggsNoctua NH-U14S

Pros: Very quiet, supreme build quality, and great cooling. I put this cooler on my 4790k overclocked to 4.6 GHz in a mini-ITX case with no heat issues

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Due to it's size I did have to plan the build's assembly order before attaching the heat sink to get everything in but, that's to be expected in a mini-ITX build

5 out of 5 eggsMy fav so far

Pros: Very easy and smooth to install!
Cools VERY VERY well.
It's very quiet. I actually had to boost the fan on it in my Bios because it though the fan was broken it was running so slowly. Temp was fine even with a low fan speed though.

I prefer this over a H100i. I have installed this and a h100i in a client's system. and the H100i was a HEADACHE. It needed a USB header to mess with the colors (Not a big deal) But whenever the system rebooted the color changed to pink and I would have to change it again. after 2 hours of looking online, I had to force update the firmware. and in general it was a pain in the rear.

The Noctua, Installed in 10 minture. Did a temp test and got amazingly low temps. Love it.

Cons: Large - but not a ram blocker

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding

Pros: It does as advertised. Super quiet even without low noise adapters.
See results below.

Cons: Nada

Other Thoughts: Test conditions:
AMD A10-5800K stock speeds
Fractal Design Define XL R2
(3) 140mm fans that came with case. 2 intake in front, 1 rear exhaust.
All temps taken from BIOS
Closed case.
20 C ambient air temp (measured at fan intake)
Results:
Idle with all fans at 50% : 30C
Idle with all fans 100% : 30C
Prime 95 for 1 hour: all fans at 50% : 42C (12 over ambient)
Prime 95 for 1 hour all fans 100%: 38C (8 over ambient)
AWESOME! I believe it's a combination of a good cooler and a case with great air flow.
As soon as my new 860K gets here (I believe it's being shipped from Neptune...) I'll see how far I can overclock it. This cooler is giving me lots of headroom.
Go ahead and put water inside your computer; this works just fine for me.
I thought about a second fan for a push/pull, but all the test results I was able to find indicated no more than 1 or 2 degree difference.

As far as the mounting hardware goes, it literally took me longer to unpack it than to install.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and Cool

Pros: Fan is quiet, even at load it has a slight air-moving sound.
Keeps i7 4790k cool at 4.5 OC (could probably do 4.6)
High profile RAM will fit with this cooler.

Cons: Not fully compatible with all motherboards. In some cases, the first PCIe slot may be blocked. Be sure to check Noctua's compatibility chart on their website to see if this cooler conflicts with your motherboard.
Fan color is not visually pleasing to my particular tastes.

Other Thoughts: The cooler is 165mm in height. Be sure your case can accommodate such a large unit.
Be sure to install the unit on a flat surface or you may have difficulties with mounting the product.
