This cooler is very, very quiet.
Erwin Peil
I needed high cooling capacity but a low profile so that I could fit the optional 200mm. case fan that sits in the door to my case.
William C. Malven
Geez... really, if you're unsure if you should buy this great cooler, put your fears to rest.

I've got two machines using a i7-2600k on a Sabertooth p67 motherboard - this fan works perfectly. The down-facing fan design is ideal for motherboard cooling, the fans can be easily removed or re-arranged. The unit is ULTRA quiet and is cooling our overclocked chips down to 27C when idle / 50C when full load at 3.5mhz / 70C when full load at 4.6mhz (ambient room of ~24c)

Noctua Thermal Grease is one of the best on the market and this unit comes with a big syringe full of it - enough to remount this thing a dozen times at least.

** Make sure to install the optional fan brace / bracket that comes with the unit. Install the bracket BEFORE mounting onto the CPU. There was a slight vibration on both machines after installing using the dual fan configuration pointing downward, but once we installed the extra brace the vibration went away.

Super Quiet, No Vibrations, Incredible Packaging, Build Quality, Great Instructions, Great Cooling.

I spent a few weeks carefully selecting upgrades for my computer that would optimized it for multi-tasking and keep it running as cool as possible. I did have the option to go with a liquid cool system or closed loop, but decided against it as it'd force me to remove one of my oversized 230mm case fans to put in. The case I'm using is the thermaltake black widow v9 black edition mid-size atx case. This case features a 230mm fan at the top to expel air, 230mm on the side of the case facing mobo, 120mm back intake and 120mm out in front. With that in mind, the case itself, being as it's not a full size/oversize case, I had to keep in mind how much space I'd have to put my cooling system in.

This setup works in my case while still leaving the 230mm side fan in (protrudes approx 0.9" into case) and mounting properly with spacers to the motherboard with about 3/4"-1" clearance from the side fan to top most part of noctua nh-c14. This system is a great low profile fan, fit right in, the problem I found is not how tall it is, but how wide and long it is. Yes, I fit it in no problem, but it only leaves about 2 inches to from the side of the cpu/heatsink until the top 230mm fan out. On my new Asus m5a99fx pro r2.0 motherboard, this is where the 12v atx rail plugs in and the 2x cpu 3pin fans. I didn't realize it was such a tight fit until after I put it in and had a heck of a time sneaking my hand up and plugging in (medium sized hands). You might want to keep this in mind and and plugin those necessary cords prior to installing this to be sure you don't have to remove it to reseat the heatsink.

The actual product packaging was phenomenal, lots of padding, lots of extra screws, mounting brackets, nice stainless steel tool for screws, quality thermal paste etc.

I recently built a new gaming rig with a sabertooth p67 motherboard and i5 2500K processor. As you know, the i5 is core clocked at 3.3ghz out of the box. I overclocked to a stable 4.7ghz and I have idle temps of roughly 32C and overclocked temps at around +- 65C using RealTemp and Prime 95 (tortured for a good hour or so). This is amazing considering the heat that comes around in SoCal during the summer. I also have to applaud Noctua for a fan sound level that is virtually non existent. I have fan controllers attached to all my operating fans inside and outside the case, and just for fun I turned off all my other fans and only left my Noctua on to hear it solo. Realistically, you cannot expect to hear nothing at all. It is a fan, after all, but considering it's size and its purpose as a CPU cooler, this cooler is the end. There can't possibly be another cooler out there that can do a better job of being a CPU cooler than this! Besides water cooling, I think Noctua set the cap for fan coolers.
The components that followed this cooler are even more outstanding. I did not buy this item from Amazon, but if I had to pay again, I would pay the same amount for just the Cooler and nothing else. The rest (thermal paste, support bar, screw driver, extra adapters, etc.) i considered as a bonus. It even comes with a square metal Noctua logo, with the sticky on the back. The product definitely pays for itself and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a high quality cooler for the right price.

Also, for those who own the sabertooth p67 motherboard, I have installed Kingston HyperX 8GB RAM (2 X 4GB) and this noctua clears it by a good inch or so.

Before purchasing the NH-C14 I was using the stock Intel cooler (Intel Core i5-3570K). Using prime95 with the stock cooler I was getting temps around 80-90c on the stock clock settings (!?!?). This was very disappointing because most of the reviews of the 3570k indicated that the stock cooler was sufficient for a mild overclock. After installing this unit, the temps for the stock clock were around 48c, a 30-40c drop! I now have the CPU clocked at 4.5GHz idleing at 27-35c (depending on ambient temp) and it tops out at about 80c when using prime95 (3 hour test).

The installation was pretty easy, just know that you will need to take your motherboard out of the case to install the rear bracket. Also make sure your RAM is installed first as well. The instructions included did not mention anything about LGA 1155 motherboards, but if you look at the PDF version on Noctua's website it is updated. Basically for the LGA 1155 you follow the instructions for the LGA 1156 (remove the rubber insert).

I installed it on an AS Rock Z77 EXTREME6 motherboard with the heat pipes facing the rear input/output panel. I am very pleased that the bottom fan covers and clears my installed RAM, so not only is the CPU & mobo being cooled, but the memory as well (ADATA Gaming Series AX3U1600GC4G9-2G). I also like that they included their thermal paste.

The fans are VERY quiet.
