Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 Review

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.
  • Pros: Massive performance; quiet; easy installation.
  • Cons: Massive footprint; front fan can interfere with RAM heat spreaders.

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.
  • 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.

  • Summary: Weighing in at 1240 grams, the 161mm tall, 140x156mm square Noctua NH-D14 processor heatsink is large no matter how you size it up.

  • Conclusion: I have to say, I was pretty impressed with the cooling performance of the Noctua NH-D14. With idle temperatures of around 23 degrees Celsius, it's one of the lowest we've seen to date. Full load temperatures were even more impressive.
