Wonderful cooler if you are shipped the correct one.

John, Amazon
22 March 2015
  • Summary: 5 stars for the cooler, 1 star for the incorrect product. I ordered the NH-D14 SE2011 and still received the version containing last generation mounting hardware. Worst part is the scanning label placed on the actual product box most likely by Axpertec says 2011 version which is obviously incorrect...

Don't buy, seriously.

John R., Newegg
13 January 2014
  • Summary: This bad product drew first blood. literally. If you need serious cooling power, save yourself the nightmarish headache and just go with a closed loop water cooling setup. they are much easier to install and work around and they keep your cpu REALLY cool.
  • Pros: Less expensive buy a narrow margin than water cooling. Less failure points...
  • Cons: Top Cons: 1.) Way way way way too big. This thing was unbelievably awkward. talk about sucking all the fun outta the build. trying to maneuver fan header cables, ram, cpu power hookups ect around this thing - OUTSIDE OF THE BOX NO LESS - was a complete nightmare! insanely difficult to install and...

Not a good experience

John-Louis S., Newegg
24 September 2012
  • Summary: I know this is going to be impossible, but if I can, I will try to avoid another purchase.
  • Pros: Was really looking forward to this after buying for such a good price.
  • Cons: I must have been unlucky or the system is messed up. Had a really bad experience. I purchased this item and got it with the most important part missing. I return it and now waiting forever for a refund. I don't have the luxury to wait for over 10days for a simple refund. Apparently getting a refu...

CPU Cooler Noctua NH-D14 Se2011

Michael S., Newegg
24 September 2012
  • Pros: Never installed.
  • Cons: It would be in your best interest to not deal with Noctua when it comes to computer hardware. I just got the CPU cooler in the mail, and the components are scattered in the box without wrapping like someone just threw them in there absentmindedly. I am missing several pieces and am currently havi...

Shop Carefully

Carl P., Newegg
14 August 2012
  • Pros: From what I have read and heard this is one of the best 2011 coolers.
  • Cons: Be careful what you wish for. This cooler will not fit any 2011 board that has high memory heat sinks, and who doesn't want high heat sinks! I ended up going watercooled. 2011 boards are a pain to find a cooler that fits over your memory. What are these system architects thinking! Oh I know, that...

Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

Elise, pricebat.ca
10 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Quiet. Looks good in case. I am receiving the similar temperatures as I was on the stock cooler that comes with the i7-950. I applied the TIM properly, tried more than a single application, even tried different TIMs. My item came with an clear nick in the base.

loud, and pricy

Tim McInley, memoryexpress.com
2 January 2013
  • Summary: This was recommended to me by my gamer brother. I knew his rig was loud, but I had no idea why till I installed this fan in my system. I thought I may have got a defective fan, so I got another one, it was loud too. In the end I got the CM 212 evo. Yes, the 212 is big too, but it's quiet.
  • Pros: fans rotate
  • Cons: -extremely loud -pricy -big

  • Excerpt: It does what it is supposed to do very properly. Keeps my 950 @stock (oc soon adequate) incredibly cool. Efficiency deserved full 5 eggs. BUT SEE CONS Below. I bought this through my parents who had been in the US and came back to Pakistan just a couple of days ago.
