Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler Review

PC Perspective
2 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Noctua is a well known name in the enthusiast world for its high-end CPU cooler products. Their flagship cooler, the NH-D14, features a nickel-plated copper base with dual radiator towers actively cooled by low noise 120mm and 140mm fans. The NH-D14 can be used with all current Intel and AMD CPU offerings. The cooler was put to the test against other similarly classed air and water-based cooling systems to see just how well Noctua's design would hold up.

Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 CPU Cooler Review

15 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Noctua’s NH-D14 (SE2011) costs £62.98 (Overclockers UK), £64.81 (Scan Computers), £67.99 (Quiet PC) and £66.99 (Specialtech) from our preferred UK retailers while in the USA it retails for $89.99 (Newegg). It is important to note the distinction between the Noctua NH-D14 and the Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 version as only the latter will support Intel’s socket LGA 2011.
  • Pros: Class leading performance, Very Quiet, Superb build quality, Attention to detail is phenomenal, Extensive bundle and accessory pack, Price competitive with rival solutions
  • Cons: Size and weight, Cables not black all the way to the motor, RAM obstruction, Beige and Brown not to everyone’s taste

Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 Review

maximum pc
4 September 2012
  • Excerpt: WHEN WE REVIEWED the first-edition Noctua NH-D14 back in April 2010, we praised its quiet performance, but our then-current test bed didn’t put out enough heat to best showcase its cooling chops. Fortunately, our new one does. This coincides nicely with Noctua’s release of the NH-D14 SE2011, which includes (gasp) LGA2011 support and updates the D14’s two fans to include PWM, or pulse-width modulation. The new NH-D14 is just as massive as the old one.
  • Pros: Massive performance; quiet; easy installation.
  • Cons: Massive footprint; front fan can interfere with RAM heat spreaders.

Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 Heatsink and NF-F12 PWM Fans

OverClock Intelligence Agency
22 April 2012
  • Summary: Much like the original NH-D14, the SE2011 model left us thoroughly impressed at the end of the day. If a massive air cooler with silent fans is what you are after, look no further - Noctua has you covered. The design is unchanged from the original, which of course isn't a knock on this cooler. If you have a good thing going, why change it? Nocta simply adapted the mounting system to work with the high-output LGA2011 platform.

Expert Review

15 February 2012
  • Conclusion: Like its predecessor the NH-D14 SE2011 performs brilliantly. It produces results that are the best among the tested products. The owners of the previous generation of NH-D14 can simply acquire the 2011 upgrade kit and they will be good to go as well. Noctua includes everything in the box including a Philips head screw-driver. The price of the product is well justified considering its stellar performance and the goodies that Noctua provides with it.

Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler Review

23 January 2012
  • Summary: The NH-D14 is a highly impressive product then, but where it will fall down for some customers is its hefty price tag. At £70 it’s more than double the price of the Thermolab Trinity and even pricier than the Zalman CNPS9500-LED. Granted the build and fan quality is superlative, but the advantage of a couple of degrees means that this a cooler for those clients with deep pockets, or simply those who enjoy the finer things in life.
  • Pros: - Great, secure mounting, - Build quality is simply amazing, - Great performance, - Quiet with resistors
  • Cons: - Expensive, - PWM controllable fans would be better., - Standard version should come with socket 2011 clips.

Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler

2 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Massive.  That's the word I would use to describe my first impression of the cooler that's the subject of this review.  I've reviewed many CPU coolers in the past, and this was the first one which stood out enough for my wife to ask me while I was testing, "What is that thing?
