Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

5 out of 5 eggs So darn BEASTLY! 03/10/2012

This review is from: Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

Pros: The thing is massive and just looking at it gives me the chills so I can only imagine what it must do to my CPU!

Installed about 10 hours ago on i7 2700k OC to 4.7GHz. Temps look great! the thing is quiet. My case is large and I my memory has no heat spreaders plus I only use 2 DIMMS so i decided to go with this. Glad I did!

Cons: Its HUGE. Hard to plug in case fans and stuff when its in. Harder still to install with Mobo in case.

It's not as bad as it sounds though. Just be ready for a few tight squeezes when plugging in chassis fans and CPU power cable near the heat sink. Also fins have sharp pointy edges! No complaints here I like a challenge. Just a heads up.

Other Thoughts: If you are not going with really high end liquid cooling (Custom) then get this. it's the best and decent price.

Pros: Nice looking. Loads of features. Future proof. Nice BIOS!!

Cons: A bit pricey, but worth it if you ever use all the features I guess.

Other Thoughts: Bought with an i7 2700k. Easily OC to 4.7GHz with little experience (Only AMD previously) Did a lot of research before buying and although there were some scary DOA and missing pin reviews here I figured that its bound to happen and people are more likely to comment on bad than good product.

So I wanted to add another good review. Hopefully it doesn't die on me now. :-p

Pros: Was only a few bucks more than a 2600k. figured Why not. Got my parts and went to work installing. Had no issues at all. Installed OS and went to work on the OC. Hit 4.5GHz like a breeze! Later took it to 4.7 on Noctua NH-D14 Cooler. have only run short stress test (45 min) still need to run long tests to see if any more voltage tweaking will be needed, but so ez. Read a couple forums and watched a youtube vid to get the hang of the new bios. That's about it.

Cons: Stock cooler looks like it belongs on 10 year old PC. No -egg cause i hear its ok for stock clock and tiny OCs. No OCer would likely use it anyway. Order a cooler with this if you want to OC big.

Other Thoughts: Bought with ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 and Noctua NH-D14. Couldn't be happier!
