Combining a massive six heatpipe dual radiator design with an exquisite NF-P14/NF-P12 PWM 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.
6 heatpipe dual radiator design
Providing more surface area, better heat-distribution and superior airflow efficiency than conventional tower style heatsinks, the NH-D14's six heatpipe dual radiator design was developed to provide ultimate quiet cooling performance in dual fan mode.
Excellent component cooling
Hanging out at the bottom of the fin-stacks, the NF-P14 fan doesn't only contribute to the NH-D14's superb CPU cooling capabilities but also provides massive airflow over surrounding motherboard components and heatsinks, thus ensuring excellent component cooling performance.
Asymmetrical design for high compatibility
An asymmetrical design that gives more clearance towards the RAM slots ensures good compatibility despite of the cooler's size. The NF-P12 fan can be moved upwards or left off in order to further improve compatibility.
SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system

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. One last point of advice is do not try to install the cooler whilst your board is outside your case. I didn't try this, but I seriously doubt it will work. While it's harder to fit your hands into the nooks and crannies in the case, it will be best.
The fans are both removable, and are adjustable vertically due to the neat brackets. You can even flip them rather than the sink, if you desire a different airflow configuration. If for whatever reason you prefer to have just one fan (or can only fit one) you can easily remove one and use it as a 140MM case fan. You may also remove and use your own fans if you don't like the look of these, but I'd imagine these are going to be quieter than most fans you'd get, and you may have a hard time with the bracket system.
On to the fun stuff: My temperatures were DRASTICALLY improved. My idle temps pre install were 35C or so (with turbo boost & speedstep ON). Post install, my idle temps were often down as low as 22C (below my room temperature), but varied between 22-26C. Under load, with stock cooler and the above settings still on, as mentioned, I was seeing temperatures as high as 95C. With the new cooler installed, I'm able to sustain 4.4 GHZ @ 100% load for forever and the temps never go over 70, and typically sit between 60-65C. All of this testing was done in a home with an ambient temperature of 22.2C (72F). See pictures for my proof!
This is not a paid review (see verified), but is an honest opinion on this product. I can't imagine there is anything better. I just wanted to inform everyone about how amazing this cooler is.

Anyway, before this I had a CM 212 Evo paired with my i7-6700k processor. I'm not sure if I applied too much thermal paste, but my idle temps were around 34C (which isn't terrible), but my load temps were around 79C. My PC isn't in the best room as far as ambient temperature, but it just seemed like those temps were too high. I ended up reapplying thermal paste on the Evo and still got similar results.
Initially, I wasn't expecting that much of an improvement with this Noctua, but WOW!!! My idle temps dropped to around 24C, and load temps fell to around 58-60C! Keep in mind that the fans run at full speed all the time on this as it doesn't come with PWM fans, but these things are near silent. While coolers like the Evo or AIO setups will rev up the fans relatively loudly to increase cooling, the D14 barely makes a peep. If you're gaming, your GPU fans will absolutely drown out any sound this thing makes.
Again, this thing is pretty big, so make sure it fits in your case before ordering. I have it in a Corsair Obsidian 450d and there are a few mm of clearance between the top of the 140mm fan and the window. Also, mine came with the fans installed backwards, where the "Noctua" stamping on the top of each heatsink would have been upside down. This wouldn't have been a big deal, but one heatsink extends a bit further than the other, so if I kept it upside down the longer side would have extended more into my RAM slots. I have some low-profile Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM so it wouldn't really have been an issue, but I reversed the fans and moved the anti-vibration bumpers into the correct position (with the "Noctua" stamping facing the correct direction.
Overall, if you can get over the size and the brown color scheme, this is probably the best air cooler on the market.
with the NH-D14 i'm getting average temperature with i7.7700k no OC
idling around 28 to 30
and load around 60 to 65
my ambient room is 23
i got to mention how quiet the cooler is
you have to understand this is realy big cooler so it's going to limit your Rams choices and Motherboards so for the ram i went with Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB it fit with asus maximus ix code
so i recommend checking their website for your parts compatibility they have long list for Mobos and ram so good luck

The only gripe I had though was the metal fins corroded after handling it. It was very strange to see but the finish is completely shot on the outside fins and you can see finger prints over it. It's quite sad really since you'll likely have a windowed case if your getting such a nice cooler. To see the damaged finish is really upsetting. I'm not sure whether it's just that I have slightly more acidic skin PH or what, but I'd recommend getting some latex gloves just in case.
Other than that though, no problems what so ever performance wise, it works a treat. I'd definitely recommend it if you are looking for an air cooler!
If you are worried about ram clearance you will be absolutely fine, the NH D-14 leaves loads of room above the RAM slots and I don't even think you would need low profile RAM but make sure you install the RAM first before the cooler. The two fans that it comes with are extremely quiet and I am also very impressed with them.
As for the performance it doesn't fail to impress. My idle cpu temperatures are around 25 degrees Celsius and don't reach above 60 whilst at load. That's also with my i5 9600k overclocked at 4.7ghz on all cores. Overall a great experience as said in the title. The NH D-14 is still a beast and is probably up there with one of the best air coolers around and at such an amazing price you can't go wrong.
The only down side I can think of for this cooler would be the colour of the fans but that's not something I am bothered about at all. I have a dark tinted tempered glass panel anyway.
If you are wondering about my specs here you are
Case : Meshify C
Cpu : Intel i5 9600k
Gpu : Asus dual fan rtx 2060 oc edition
Mobo : msi mpg z390 gaming plus
RAM : corsair vengeance lpx 3200mhz
SSD : Samsung 850 evo 250gb
HDD : Seagate Barracuda 1TB
If you want PWM go for the DH15's though some users may experience more RAM clearance issues
On the plus side it does come with voltage adapters with built in resisters to force the fans to run at a lower RPM and generate less noise, I am currently using these and getting sub 30 degrees which doing basics taks on the PC and about 50-60 degrees in most games. I have also managed to over clock my i5-4690k to 3.9Ghz stable.
My system is people want ot check for compatiability:
- Case - Fractal Design R4
- RAM - 2133mhz G-Skill Ripjaws DDR3
- 970 SLI's
I've used them in the past and know all too well what to expect. Cool, quiet and truth be told a bit, well.... ugly.
It's big and you'll need a decent sized case to house it. It's also heavy and as you need to install it before putting it in MOST cases it can make plugging in your connectors tricky. I have big ham hocks and this'd can cause the drunken sailor to come out during a build. Get past that though and it's all good. Using the latest purchase on a 6700k skylake build, the whole accessory pack (including decent thermal compound) ensures you have everything you need no matter what CPU you use. The bracket design ensures you don't get uneven pressure across the face of the processor.
It's virtually perfect, tart it up a little and drop the 70's beige and it would be pride of place. Most modern motherboards have a fancy shell suit and stacks of bling, this can make the cooler look a bit out of place. For me it's all about performance not style so it's no big deal.
Buy it, you'll not regret it.
Far superior in size, effectiveness and mounting equipment to my previous heatsink, though more expensive by a long shot. Good online guide for compatible RAM. I was concerned that my new motherboard would not leave enough clearance for my GPU. The fan mounting clips you can see in the main image on the heatsink only just left a 2-3mm gap, so it's okay. If I mounted it facing upwards with 3x fans, it wouldn't work. Don't be a dummy like me and screw it in before putting your RAM in.
