I was contemplating an upgrade and was fixated on Noctua's compatibility page for motherboards given that this thing is so huge. Then it hit me -- this thing fits both newer (AM3) and older (775) motherboards, and my EVGA board was on the compatibility list! Who needs to upgrade everything? I'm happy with my system and its performance.
This thing is huge. It's colossal in every way. And you know what? It's so very quiet! Good heavens!
Running at lowest RPM, with my aged Q6600 overclocked to 3.4Ghz @ 1.5v, my CPU idles at 29-31C. Under load, it goes up maybe 10 degrees. This thing positively sucks the heat away. It's absurd! Who needs water cooling!? Oh, and it's so quiet. It really is bliss.
This is the state of the art in air cooling.
UPDATE DECEMBER 11, 2013:
I still have this thing, three years later. It's now cooling my overclocked i2500k CPU and has been for nearly two years. Running 4.4ghz stable since day one. It's still as quiet as a church mouse!
Many PC builders these days are rushing to the enclosed, single piece liquid cooling setups like the H50 thinking that liquid cooling MUST be better than air cooling, but this is not the case. If you look at good standardized testbeds that take ambient air temperature into account and minimize all variables, this Noctua actually beats them by several degrees, and at a lower noise level.
The only way you can beat the temps of the Noctua is a multi-hundred dollar custom watercooling setup.
With mounting hardware for every current CPU socket, 2 top-of-the-line fans, and high quality thermal paste included, this is truly an all-in-one kit.
-Best aircooler available
-Beats enclosed single piece liquid cooling systems like the H50 by a large margin in standardized review setups.
-Absolutely quiet, high quality ball-bearing fans
-Includes thermal paste that beats out AS5 in most tests I've seen
-Fits every modern CPU socket
-Outstanding packaging, instructions, 3pin splitter cable, "ultra quiet" adapters
-Some motherboards/cases cannot use this due to size. Check their website for compatibility.
-Kind of ugly colors on the fans
If you can fit it in your case and your budget, get this heatsink. You won't be disappointed.
March 2012 Update: It's been about 18 months since I installed my Noctua NH-D14 and I'm still completely satisfied. The fans have held up very well and show no signs of aging, and the cooler as a whole works as well as it did when it was brand new.
Enter the NH-D14. Installation wasn't 'easy', but it wasn't hard either. The instructions come in separate books for AMD/Intel. Per the instructions, I removed my motherboard, installed the backplate (fairly simple), and installed the new cooler mounting brackets on the opposite side. It does give you layouts for the final product in the instructions. I chose to have mine intake on the side closest to the drive bays, and exhaust on the opposite side, facing the rear case fan (both fans are moving air in the same direction, on opposite sides of the sinks). I believe this is going to be the most efficient way to install in 90% of applications.
The absolute most difficult portion of installing this sink is finding the space for it. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS COOLER IF YOU'RE RUNNING ANYTHING SMALLER THAN ATX MOTHERBOARD, AND MID-ATX CASE. I am running a standard mid size atx, and standard atx board. I had enough room to get everything installed, but the high heat sinks on my Corsair Vengeance RAM posed an issue and I will be replacing the memory rather than voiding my warranty by removing the sinks.Read more ›
Enter Noctua: At first look, this cooler is simply massive. This holds true when you receive the box as well, with the shipping weight at around 5 lbs if my memory serves me well enough
- QUIET!! I turned every case fan down to 800rpm or so, but left the noctua fans at 1300 and 1200rpm respectively and you still did not hear them. Your computer will be so cool, you wont need those other fans to be so loud
- Included fans. Two incredibly high quality fans come with this beast, though one is more than enough to get the job done
- BIG!! the sheer size of this heatsink is ridiculous. To check my installation, i turned on the computer with not a single fan in my case on. Then i ran FAH. then i watched as it stayed cooler than the intel stock cooler at 2150rpm
-Well designed. More than clears most ram sticks, i used Corsair Vengeance LP
- Good value (see also cons) This is no hyper 212 evo. It may cost the better part of 80 dollars, but it includes 2 $20+ noctua fans, which are the best available.
- secure mounting. This beast weighs a hefty two pounds or more installed, so the mounting hardware is no slouch. (See other thoughts)
- LOTS of HIGH QUALITY thermal paste. Ok, so i messed up the thermal paste the first time, my mistake.Read more ›
