Introduction to the Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler
Noctua Has always being a big hit here at Pro-Clockers. The reason being is we have yet to see a disappointing product from them. We have reviewed no less than five coolers from them over the years and have yet to find ourselves unhappy. The quality Noctua puts into each of their products is a practice they have perfected and have yet to ease up on.
We can go on and on about their products; but I wouldn't be doing my job very well, if I didn't mention what type of products they made. Noctua is all about cooling. Extreme air-cooling. Their coolers are regarded as top-of-the-line. Often on the large size, but it isn't just size that matters with their coolers. There is technology behind it. Technology like the asymmetrical structures, secure mounting and large heat pipes. But one feature that make Noctua's coolers as good as they are is the SSO-bearing fans. Even enthusiasts not using Noctua coolers are huge fans of their fans. They are very quiet, well performing and long lasting.
Before I re-write the "About Us" page for Noctua, let's get into why we are here today. Noctua was generous enough to send over their latest cooler, the NH-D14. The D14, as we will call it, is the largest cooler we have seen from Noctua to date. It weighs in at 1240 grams with two fans attached. This alone is scary enough, but due to the SecuFirm 2 mounting system weight should be the last issue on your mind. Lets get into the review before I reveal anymore secrets on the D14.
Noctua take on the NH-D14
Combining a massive six heatpipe dual radiator design with an exquisite NF-P14/NF-P12 dual fan configuration, the NH-D14 is built for ultimate quiet cooling performance. Topped off with a tube of Noctua’s award-winning NT-H1 thermal compound as well as the new SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system, the NH-D14 is an elite choice for the highest demands in premium quality quiet cooling.
