    I'm wondering if any of you have tried a NH-D14 with 3 fans, and what kind of cooling improvement, if any, you witnessed.
    Let's assume it all fits, and clearances are OK. What about performance?
    Just curious.

    tried it, wasnt worth much other than looking more massive than it originally was. (added a Noctua 140 to it)

    If you want more out of the cooler, get fans with more CFM that have the same or better static pressure.
    Inceptor says thanks.

    Seconded. Put a second 120mm fan on mine for 3 total and very little change. Sticking with standard setup now.
    Inceptor says thanks.
