Be careful when ordering

Paul A., Newegg
13 December 2015
  • Pros: It is well built but it's massive and will take up your entire case. Why bother when water cooling is so much better and doesn't put the strain this monster will put on your board. There's more chance this will stress your board then there is that a water cooler will leak which is virtually impos...
  • Cons: The NH-D14 will not work on the Asus Rampage Extreme 2011 V2 socket. Instead you need the NH-D15. And it gives you no warning. So I accidentally ordered the 14 and returned it. By then I realized forget air cooling and I bought a swiftec water cooler off of ama zon. I couldn't be happier. It's ti...

'UGE....so big, there's no room for the 'H'

Timothy R., Newegg
19 October 2015
  • Summary: Be warned. or just keep it in your car as a back-up radiator...
  • Pros: or anything else for that matter. I'm sure if your case is a warehouse, you'll have no problem with overheating. This thing is massive.
  • Cons: I checked the measurements prior to ordering; actual dimensions and theoretic dimensions are totally different things. The L x W x H says It "should've" fit into my case, however when everything else was installed, I couldn't even close the side access panel.

You can do better for the money

Steven K., Newegg
19 February 2015
  • Summary: I think if you upgraded the fans to 4 pin, higher RPM fans this cooler might be really impressive. For that you would probably spend another $40+ and at that point you might as well go liquid cooled.
  • Pros: Pretty well designed and seems like it has some great cooling capability. Fans are very easy to install and remove. It's better than stock....
  • Cons: As everyone has said, this thing is huge. I knew this when I bought it but I was still overwhelmed when I saw the box and then again when I held it for the first time. You're going to need a full tower this! It's cooling ability is sub par for the price and if I had to guess it's due to the lack ...

Looks good, didn't perform for me.

Thomas S., Newegg
17 January 2015
  • Pros: Looks good. Built like a tank. Look like a tank.
  • Cons: I purchased this heatsink because of the good reviews but I must of been one of the few that got a unit that did not perform. Compared to my Lucifer v2 which was 10c-15c cooler than the this Noctua (with 3 fans, mind you) that was running my overclocked 4.6mhz fx8320 to it's limit of 70c in a haf...

the radiators and fans need to be higher up off the motherboard

Bret Holden, Amazon
27 April 2014
  • Summary: If you are using this on a motherboard with any kind of high performance ram with heat sinks, then it will not fit because it is to big.

Para el precio que tiene, no consigue bajar tanto la temperatura como esperaba

jesus, amazon.es
13 May 2013
  • Summary: Tengo un pheno II 965, y para hacerle OC me decanté por este bicho, al estar tan bien valorado en otros sitios. Pero me ha defraudado, lo he quitado y vuelto a poner 3 veces para comprobar que estaba bien colocadao, lo estaba, pero no consigue bajar mucho la temperatura.

Trop gros !!

JoG, Amazon
20 January 2011
  • Summary: Bon, avec ma carte MSI Z87-GD65 et mes barrettes Kingston HyperX Predator, je n'ai pas pu mettre ce ventirad... Sauf, bien sûr, en faisant une croix sur le Dual-channel. En effet, quelque soit la position de ce Noctua, il empiète sur deux logements de RAM.
