Noctua Presents NH-D14 Premium CPU Cooler

Noctua today officially presented its long-awaited NH-D14 premium CPU cooler. Combining a massive six heatpipe dual radiator design with an exquisite NF-P14/NF-P12 dual fan configuration, the NH-D14 is built to further improve the renowned quiet cooling performance of Noctua's award-winning NH-U12P series.

"Our NH-U12P coolers are widely regarded as one of the best solutions on the market, so it makes us especially proud that we can offer a further substantial improvement in quiet cooling performance with the new NH-D14", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "The NH-D14 in Ultra-Low-Noise mode actually outperforms the NH-U12P at full fan speed, so we're confident that this cooler will appeal to overclockers and silent enthusiasts alike."

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 with the supplied NF-P14 (140mm) and NF-P12 (120mm) fans. Both fans feature Vortex-Control Notches, SCD technology and SSO-Bearings in order to achieve a perfect balance of performance and quietness.

The NH-D14's asymmetrical design gives more clearance towards the RAM slots and thus ensures good compatibility despite of the cooler's size. 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.

Topped off with a tube of Noctua's award-winning NT-H1 thermal compound as well as the new SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system (LGA-1366, LGA-1156, LGA-775, AM2, AM2+ and AM3), the NH-D14 is an elite choice for the highest demands in premium quality quiet cooling.

Price and availability
The NH-D14 will be available by mid-November at a recommended retail price of EUR 74.90 / USD 84.90.

Its like IFX-14 but with more heatpipes:D

I bet it performs great.

I imagine Thermal Right will have IFX-14 rev 2 soon due to this.

Noctua solutions certainly cool better than Xigmatek solutions and are more high quality too , besides their price tags are also different so it is quite natural for that to happen.

Looks like it performs pretty well. All buyers need to do is replace those weak CFM fans with 85CFM+ plans and you will see some really nice temps.

Ya its expensive, but the noctua engineers in austria probably dont work for minimum wage, Noctua also has them built in a factory that is ISO 9001 and 14001 compliant, and look at that beast, wonder what shipping costs are from china to north america lol

That beast is going to be hard to defeat. But Prolimatech is coming with 3 coolers and as said, the revision of IFX-14 by Thermalright. The price incl. fans isn't that bad.

I didn't know they had an ISO 9001 and 14001 factory. :rockout:

I don't think a thrid fan will help much if any. I wouldn't mind using the 140mm that came with to replace my 140mm on my HAF. I'll probably get another CM red R4.

I dont even know if its £68 before or after VAT,

so £68 + 17.5% VAT = £79.90

not to mention the retailers overhead fee's after hes bought X amount of units.

Not picking on you specifically, but I would assume "normal ram" will still fit under the cooler. Not that it isnt a PITA even at that, but for sure ram with heatspreaders would cause issues.

RAM in my computers have heat spreaders. haha. and delima #1 I need to remove a stick of RAM, and now with such a HUGE HSF i have to take that off to be able to remove the module. Although with the number this is proving to put up I feel its worth it. As for normal RAM, thats for normal people, im very special.:D

what I meant essentially was that it would be a PITA to access, not that it was completely cut off.

Lmao, i can completely agree that removing a cooler to swap ram sucks, but it "could" still work. It is sort of a buzzkill that it is an enthusiast cooler was built without the inthusiast in mind it seems:)

Of course every board is different and it may not play up on some. For those who can use it, it sounds very promissing.

Nothing is perfect, but it seems that its overall a decent cooler. Ive had a couple coolers that made RAM accessibility a complete bish. Although, those coolers are the ones that have preformed the best.
