The NH-C14 brings top-flow cooling to a new level by offering an exquisite, uniquely flexible 140mm dual fan setup: The two supplied NF-P14 premium fans can be installed on top and underneath the fin-stack to configure the cooler for maximum performance in dual fan mode and either lower profile (105mm) or maximum component clearance in single fan modes. Bundled with the award-winning NT-H1 thermal compound and Noctua’s SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system, the NH-C14 is a highly flexible, premium-class top-flow solution that further boosts the renowned quiet cooling performance of the much acclaimed NH-C12P series.

  • newegg C-Type Top-flow Design The NH-C14’s six heatpipe c-type design allows for superb quiet cooling performance while maintaining a much lower profile than today’s tower-style coolers and providing excellent airflow over RAM modules and near-socket motherboard components.
  • newegg Dual NF-P14 FLX Fans The NH-C14 comes with two of Noctua’s award-winning, premium quality NF-P14 140mm fans that can be fine-tuned according to your needs via the supplied Low-Noise (L.N.A.) and Ultra-Low-Noise Adapters (U.L.N.A.).
  • newegg Low Profile Mode Run with a single NF-P14 fan underneath the fin stack and with the top fan removed, the NH-C14 measures only 105mm in height, which makes it ideal for use in smaller enclosures and HTPC applications.
  • newegg High Clearance Mode The lower NF-P14 fan can be removed in order to provide additional clearance for chipset coolers or RAM modules with tall heat-spreaders. Run with a single fan on top, the NH-C14 provides a full 65mm of clearance.
  • newegg SecuFirm2 Multi-socket Mounting System Noctua’s enthusiast grade SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting provides broad socket compatibility (LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA1155, LGA775, AM2, AM2+ and AM3) and meets the highest demands in safety, performance and ease-of-use.
  • newegg Noctua NT-H1 High-end Thermal Compound Noctua's much-acclaimed NT-H1 is a well proven pro-grade TIM solution that provides minimum thermal resistance, excellent ease-of-use and outstanding reliability.

So good, it's comical

Pros: I have a 6600K at 1.25V and a mild overclock to 4.0GHz. Stress testing brings the temps up to the mid forties. I can barely hear the fans.
Installed fine, no problems.
You just cannot beat the cooling power to sound ratio of these premium Noctuas.
Blows air over the RAM and CPU voltage regulators, keeping them cool too.

UPDATE: I went to 4.5GHz at 1.3V. The cores now run in the upper forties/very low fifties. Amazing

Cons: Not the best looking fan out there.
Large, but you need a large air cooler to keep things cool. What else do you need the space in your case for?
Obsoleted, get it soon or not at all.

Other Thoughts: I can see that the cooler needs the extra bar which I installed. It runs smoothly and quietly.
I manged to purchase this just after it was obsoleted months ago at a good price.
Four core Intel's really don't need water cooling. If you go 8 core, get a water cooler. Only then are they really better.

For the heat transfer enthusiast

Pros: This is the best heat transfer device I have ever bought. 100% worth the investment. It outlasted the system it was bought for and installed well into a new system after over two and a half years of continuous use. It gives a secure, forgiving install. The best advantage over the CM Hyper series (another quality product) is the mounting bracket for intel that gives a sense of security when installing such a heavy radiator. Good, quiet fans and overall well made.

Cons: Obviously large footprint. The versatile mounting options do not make up for the massive size and exacting installation. Will often require removing the motherboard and in general requires attention and patience when installing. Cannot use both fans and RAM with tall heat spreaders. I prefer to leave my computers on their side due to the weight even though the bracket is secure.

Other Thoughts: Get this if you want to overclock.

included a surprise

Pros: I was surprised to find an extra (optional) support bracket that was not pictured or mentioned by other reviews I have read. The bracket is easy to install with 2 supplied screws. This support bracket is to help protect from damage when moving your PC. I see no reason not to use it, even if you don't move your PC much.
The whole install was very easy using the AMD bracket. I cannot speak to Intel install. It also fit very nicely in my very old Lian Li PC-60 case. Despite it's large size it is not blocking access to anything in my case or on MB. If I need to add/remove RAM I would just remove the lower fan and it would be easy. My RAM is standard height and I have plenty of room between top of RAM and lower fan, If you have tall RAM you may have to remove lower fan. Check your measurements first.
Seems to be very well made product.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I made a paper template before purchasing this large cooler to check for clearance in my case.

Quiet but Huge fan

Pros: Nearly dead quiet on the lower setting. Keeps it plenty cool.

Cons: Big. Really big. Had to remove some ram to get it to fit. There should be a warning and fan dimensions so any buyer will understand how installing it will impact other items in your case.

Other Thoughts: On the other hand, being forced to remove some ram caused me to discover an issue with the ram I had. That was a very good thing to discover! Now, I actually have the usable amount near what it was before. Serendipity.

great cooler, especially with limited space

Pros: •this is a great alternative to the D14. while the performance isn't quite as good, it is one of the best if you clearance issues with the tower style HSF (in my case, the GPU placement on my motherboard is the limiting factor for tower style units)
•as expected, great Noctua quality
•comes with Noctua's thermal compound (only a quarter tube though), which is one of the best on the market
•good, easy to install, mounting hardware

Cons: •Noctua fans are not pretty, and it is very visible through the side window of my case
•included fans aren't PWM

Other Thoughts: tests on other websites show that there is little difference between running 2 fans and using only the top fan (bottom fan only shows a more significant difference). so, if you have RAM with top fins, its not a big deal to remove the bottom fan (which has the added benefit of being somewhat quieter). Alternatively, you could remove the fins from the RAM, if allowed (such as on Trident-X RAM) and get extra RAM cooling from the fan blowing over it.

Much better options out there

Pros: The cooling works.

Cons: There's a lot of cons with this heat sink
-Huge pain to install, definitively have never had this much trouble and frustration installing a heat sink. Instructions were not clear and I had to find a video just to realize that there were tiny holes in the heat sink to get to the screws.

-This thing keeps my CPU about as cool as the stock CPU fan that came with my processor did.

-It is overall a hideous piece of equipment, I bought this because of the price and since the reviews seemed pretty good rather than buying a fancy higher end one, although it seems that was a mistake.

-The fans have this extremely annoying issue of changing RPMs constantly when idling which makes two distinct different annoying noises.

-It was suggested that this heat sink was very quiet which is why I bought it. This is however completely false, it is quite loud and annoying.

Other Thoughts: Over all I would suggest any buyer looking to get a decent heat sink to STAY AWAY from this ugly piece of junk. Not worth the money spent on it and you surely are better off with a stock CPU heat sink or possibly anything else.

And if all else the level of noise that comes from it will surely drive you insane.

Don't believe the Hype

Pros: -Great packaging and accessories.
-Straight forward and simple installation.
-NF-P14's are quiet

Cons: -Honestly this is a really outdated Heatsink, many single fan and even slim single fan solutions offer the same performance.
-Uses the older Secufirm mounting system instead of the updated one.
-Uses the old style splitters and noise adapters that have exposed wire and aren't fully sleeved.
-The support bracket that was later added is laughable.
-Fans are not PWM, at this price makes no sense.

Other Thoughts: This thing just reeks "old."

The fins are not reinforced in any way like modern Phanteks, Cryorig or even current Noctuas. Therefore they are super easy to bend. The fans are ancient 3 pin P14's and the entire accessory package has remained the same since 2011.

This heatsink performs like a $25 Hyper 212 but at 130mm height. If that's worth it to you go for it but you also lose all accessibility to any and everything around the motherboard if you opt to use the support bracket (which you should).

I went through 2 both of which had quality control issues, the first had dented fins. Someone at the factory was careless installing the top fan and irreversibly bent 4 corners of the heatsink. The 2nd one had terrible solder remnants that poured out and dried near the base + it was missing the rubber sound dampers on the support bracket.

Do yourself a favor and buy a C1, AXP200.

5/ 5

Pros: Very silent, very efficient, directs its airflow toward the motherboard, providing additional cooling for motherboard mounted elements (chipset, memory etc.)
Used with Rosewill BLACKHAWK case, Intel Core i7-4770K and GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-D3H.
Can be used with one or two fans.

Cons: I would think how to fix fan cables. This is not a problem but it requires to fill "Cons".
