Top Customer Reviews
This is an impressive cooler. At 100% CPU (Intel Xeon E3-1270, quad core) load for days, the system maintains a steady 50C temperature. There is even an option to mount a second fan (model NF-F12) on the back for a push-pull configuration. My build uses an ATX case from Corsair (500R) and the cooler is perfectly level with case exhaust fan. The top of the radiator leaves just enough clearance within the case, no issues with memory or anything else. I wonder how my system stayed cool with such a skimpy stock cooler.
I highly recommend this cooler for anyone needing a quiet, high quality air cooler for their system. As an added bonus, everything you need for the install is included: thermal compound, phillips driver, adapters, extra fan mounts, and even printed install instructions. This is really great product.
Cooling on this unit is excellent in spite of the low fan noise. It's an excellent match for any of the 1150 sockets, probably all the way to the most powerful Intel i7's. Note that, if you really tax your system (or are an overclocker), you can purchase a second Noctua fan and attach it to the other side of the aluminum fins. But I doubt I'd myself ever need to do that.
This is an easy five star recommendation. The catch? You have to be happy with the beige and brown color, because that's all Noctua makes these fans in. But if that is not an issue, I'd consider this one of the best, if not the best, fans and coolers on the market.
This cooler is amazing. I was running the Intel stock cooler until I could order this for my new PC and though the Intel cooler worked fine (59C when running Dolphin emulator and playing Mariokart full screen at high FPS) this cooler is keeping temps at about 39C during the same emulation.
Dolphin emulation: 59C to 39C
CPU-Z Stress test: 70-72C to 47C
Idle: 39-41C to 31C
Measurements taken via Speccy within an hour this morning.
Needless to say this thing rocks. I swapped the normal Noctua fan for a Noctua Industrial 120mm and have the BIOS set to very low %speeds until above 55C which never happens.After the cooler swap my PC isn't audible even though it is 3 feet away on top of my desk. I also have a 200mm fan for intake and an Industrial 140mm for exhaust.
Used this in a i7-4790K system.
The CPU wouldn't even hit 40 degrees during normal operation.
I set my PWM case and CPU fans to not even turn on until the CPU hits 40 degrees.
The system runs extremely cool and as a result dead quiet!
In any case, you'd be hard pressed to have a situation where this cooler is not enough. On top of that the fans are extremely quiet.
I can recommend it 100%
It is quiet even if you don't use the noise reduction wire that comes with it. All of the materials are top quality. It is extremely well packaged.
The results of CPU cooling compared to the stock cooler are substantial. Running several different CPU load test before and after showed at minimum a 35% reduction in CPU temps after it was installed.
