Noctua NH-C12P SE14 140mm SSO CPU Cooler
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Haswell Cooling 07/02/2013

This review is from: Noctua NH-C12P SE14 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

Pros: Massive

Cons: Some users don't know what they are taking about regarding this heatsink it runs much cooler.

Other Thoughts: I replaced my Intel 4770 stock heatsink with this bad boy due to overheating issues. Running Prime95 with the Intel stock heatsink the CPU was hitting 100C after 2-3 minutes, after replacing the heatsink with the Noctua NH-C12P SE14 after 10 minutes the highest temp has been 67 degrees. I'm not using one of the low noise adapters because the video card is louder than the CPU. I used 5 tiny drops of thermal paste one in the center, and close to the 4 corners.

Pros: -16GB consisting of 2 sticks
-DDR3 1600 9-9-9-24 (they tested the 9-9-9-28 at 1700mhz), so bios reports 9-9-9-24 @ 1600.

Cons: -None, plugged them in and off they went at rated speeds.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from 8GB of 1333 7-7-7 and I didn't want faster memory but with higher latencies which the 10-10-10 modules had. Latencies of 9-9-9 at 1600 are nearly identical to 1333 7-7-7 but with a higher overall bandwidth meaning games like Skyrim are faster (even noticeable).
