It is VERY quiet as well.
Kaos
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for excellent air cooling, though if you want the best then the D14 cools ever so slightly better.
John
The fans are incredibly quiet even when set to the highest speed.

Product is very nice..... when it says in the instructions turn screw till it stops.. they mean it... the screw will snap if you torc it at all... but they will send you new ones free....

Fans are very quiet,,,,, unit is very very tall... I installed the Noctua CPU heatsync solution in in a Coolmaster 690 II Advanced case and could not install the upper side cover fan with the Noctua heatsync in the system. Case is too narrow or heatsync is too tall depending on how you look at it.

The Noctua instructions say you may have to remove the fins from Dominator memory installed with this heatsync solution but this was not required with the fans oriented to blow towards the rear of the case (recommended for optimal air flow) on an ASUS P6X58D systemboard.

I really like the Noctua CPU heatsync solution and would buy it again.
Fans are very very quiet

I built a PC based on the Intel core i7-960 for video processing that also does double duty to power a home theater. The Noctua keeps the CPU running cool even with the strain of video editing and processing while the low noise fans are great for the home theater use.
After building numerous PC's, I highly recommend this cooler for high performance CPU's while maintaining a low noise environment. It is the best I have found for air cooling.
There is always liquid cooling for the ultimate in heat transfer, if cost is no object. But in high heat loads the external cooling fins will require a fan, and a fan outside the case is much loader than a fan inside a noise shielded PC case.

I bought this to replace a liquid cooler whose pump was too loud for my use; this is installed in a custom HTPC. This PC is kept running as it is my program recorder. The liquid cooler was a Corsair; it was efficient in heat dissipation but could be heard 15 feet away in a quiet room. This unit cannot be heard when standing next to the PC: a world of difference. I use a the same unit in my main PC. Both have quad core AMD processors and 8GB Ram running Windows 7 Professional.
I highly recommend this cooler for just about any PC. CPU temperatures average 39 to 41 degress C under heavy load with ambient temps of 78 to 80 degrees F.

Bought this from one of the resellers for 66.49 (don't know where Amazon get's their $140+ price from). Am using it on i7 860 chip. This is one of the few coolers that has a bracket for the 1156 socket. The unit comes with two 120mm Noctua fans. I only used one and used the other to replace an Antec case fan that came with the case.

With no OC, the idle temp ranges 24-27°C. Using an Asus P7P55D motherboard and using their auto OC tuning, idle temp range jumps up about 10°C. Have only had this build up and running for two days, so I have not had a chance to do much testing. I'm not a gamer, so it should be more than adequate cooling for my needs. And it's quiet-really quiet.

Caution: this is a large heat sink and will not fit in some cases. I'm using an Antec P-183 case and have about an inch clearance between the top of the cooler and the case cover.

I used this on a new build with a Cooler Master 690 II Advanced case and it will fit with about a 1/2 inch to spare. The Noctua brown fans are not much to look at but are high end fans and very quiet. I have been running my quad core I7 pretty good the last several hours and it barely breaks 40 degrees C. I do have a lot of extra fans installed and I am sure that helps a lot.

The written instructions are very good. The only down side to this cooler is that the fans are not easy to install on the cooler. You can not install them before you mount it on the mother board. I found that if you hook up the clips on the fans closest to the board first it goes much easier since you can't get your hands in there very well. But once they are installed they are solid.

I've previously been satisfied with the stock heatsink and fan (HSF) that came with my retail CPUs since I wasn't really into overclocking. But lately, I've been really involved with heavy duty video encoding where you're having the CPU run at 100% for days straight. With the stock HSF, once the CPU goes to 100% usage, the fan would spin faster to outrageously loud levels. But my CPU would start to overheat to the point that the computer would crash and reboot. I ended up pointing a desk fan toward the inside of the case which dropped down the temperatures to a reasonable level. However, to have to point a desk fan is not an ideal situation.

So some kind people pointed me toward Noctua and told me about the great craftsmanship of their products. And they weren't kidding. This is some of the most amazing packaging and craftsmanship I've ever experienced in a computer product, rivaling the packaging you would expect from Microsoft or Apple. All the various parts and instructions are neatly itemized and separated for your convenience. Not only is the documentation quite good inside the package, but the website is well organized and has even more useful information such as a detailed FAQ. They believe in their product and provide a great 6 year warranty as well.

Having been accustomed to the standard HSF that comes with a CPU, it was a shock to see how enormous this Noctua HSF was. It truly is a powerful beast. It comes designed to fit both Intel and AMD CPUs. I personally have an AMD Phenom II 940 X4 Black Edition processor. There are brackets you add to the motherboard so that the HSF securely attaches to it. Since it's so enormous, you do have to be careful of the computer case you're using and the components on the motherboard such as the RAM.
