Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler ReviewPosted on 2010-03-31 14:27:55 by Thomas De Maesschalck
It's been nearly four years since we last looked at a Noctua air cooler here at OCIA.net. This is a real shame as they are widely considered one of the top air cooling manufacturers in the world, held in the same regard as Thermalright and Tuniq. Today we have their flagship cooler in for evaluation, the NH-D14. This is an absolute monster of a heatsink - more like two coolers welded together with dual fans. Those with cramped mid tower cases need not apply. But just because it is very large doesn't automatically make it worth your hard-earned money and this wouldn't be the first time that a large cooler has failed to deliver on perceived high expectations. Does the NH-D14 have what it takes to keep the Noctua brand in the top three globally? Keep reading as we put it to the test.
