Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler ReviewPosted on 2011-10-23 20:33:23 by Thomas De Maesschalck
Noctua is truly the last word in the industry when it comes to quiet, high-performance air-based cooling products. Three years ago they released the highly regarded NH-U12P heatsink - a unit that was only challenged by the legendary Thermalright and Prolimatech units. Always improving their products, Noctua is once again back at it with a fully redesigned six heatpipe, massive dual fin array tower cooler - the NH-D14 is air cooling at the most high-end level imaginable. With immense manufacturing quality and an equally immense price tag, the NH-D14 carries quite a few expectations regarding performance. And, considering a consumer is now able to purchase a quiet, high-performance, self-contained water cooling unit (like the H50) for a slightly lower price than that of the NH-D14, the performance results should be beyond impressive.
