Noctua NH-C14 CPU Cooler ReviewPosted on 2011-05-17 19:43:20 by Thomas De Maesschalck
So let's go back to basics and start from the beginning. A computer system is nothing without sufficient cooling much like a car performs better when at an optimum temperature, whereas some develop faults with cold starts. Think of computers as the other way round, as hot temperatures can lead to catastrophic failure and a nice cool, chilled system will run flawlessly 99.99999% of the time.
So we now know that systems like to remain cool, so what's stopping you chucking a million fans at it and getting some fantastic results? NOISE, AND WE ALL HATE NOISE, i'll stop shouting now. Noise is the bane of any system builders life and is a common topic of conversation on websites, much like this one. We even have a forum section dedicated to cooling and overclocking where likeminded users can discuss how to keep their systems cool and quiet and i'm not talking about the AMD downclock feature.
