    Those numbers were much better than the ones I got with my NH-U12P at roughly the same settings.

    Anyone in the UK looking for a corsair H50? I'm seriously considering selling mine after seeing those numbers :D

    Just got mine setup and I'm running a couple steps over what I did for 4ghz now going for 4.2. Running ~1.3625 before vdroop. Saw very low 90s at that voltage on the V2. Now with the D14 looking at ~10C improvement with ambient with in 2C of before. Probably will end up somewhere in the 15C improvement over the V2. I'm quite pleased.

    I'm laughing doing this. Used AS for both and am starting to see it setup since my temps are dropping slowly run after run. I'm up to 1.336 after vdroop and barely seeing 80C with RT. I would be well into the 90s on the V2 even with my ultra kaza 3000 strap to it. The P6T6 does seem to have problems with vdroop as vcore increases over ~1.35v. It get larger and larger slowly. I've gone from 1.4 to 1.425 and the vdroop voltage is the same.

    BTW, if anyone has a P6t Deluxe, which I think the P6T6 is based off of, tall memory sticks won't work in the closest ram slotThis is when having the fans parallel with the PCIe slots. The 120mm also comes up close to the first card slot on my board. I just moved my 4870x2 down to the third PCIe slot. The front fan totally covers the P6T6 northbridge heat sink. I moved the 140mm down all the way and it hangs a good portion below the heat sink and should move some good amount of air through the northbridge.

    I'm also extemely impressed with the quality of packaging with the Noctua. I see now why so many people like their products. I do have a couple complaints with this one though:

    1) The rubber inserts to keep the fan off the heat sink fins need some way to sit in the slots tighter. I couldn't just put them in cause they would fall out once I let my finger off them and before I could put the fan on to hold them in place.
    2) I wish the philips wrench they supply was a little longer. Currently it makes screwing the heat sink bolts down a little challenging seeing as I can't really press down with one hand as it is too close to the heat sink to hold closed fist so that you can hold on to the heat sink.

    Other than that, this was a really good experience. I do finally agree with others that CM needs to redo the hole location they are adding into the back of their cases. I had to fully unbolt the board and move it up a little to be able to add the backing plate for the D14.

    It is massive! However it does cool pretty well. I had to remove my 120mm fan on the top because it wouldn't fit.
    I was going to arrange mine like you did, but I decided to mount it with the fans blowing out the back of the case. I moved the front fan to the rear and have it pulling air. Seems to be cooling nicely.

    Not... FANTASTIC... BUTTTT. It's in a case, the NZXT Tempest EVO. Ambient temp is 23c.
    4.2GHz, HT on (of course!). 1.35v vcore, 1.35v qpi, 1.84v pll.

    When I have the NH-U12P with two Scythe 87cfm 120mm fans, on my tech station with the a/c blasting right over it (vent right above rig), I was hitting 80-82c. So... hell yeah, the NH-D14 is far superior.

    That's not bad at all, what are the temps during WCG or any other program that gives it load that is not a stress test? Those temps are not bad I would say for being in a case :) Plus you just put it on, let the thermal compound cure a bit, should drop a few degrees.

    Yeah, a little higher than I expected, was hoping to stay in the 70-72c range for the MAX full load temp. But considering the fans are low rpm and super quiet and that its back in a case with a heater 4870x2... the temps are pretty decent. I'll give WCG a go.

    You ought to turn it 90 degrees johnny. I'm mid 60s full load with mine. About 1.3V under load, 1.35 in bios.

    I might just to see... but... what are your ambient temps and what are your temps in Intel Burn Test? I'm running WCG right now and the max temp is 73c.

    Johnny, I use LinX and ambient is 24-25C. I'll run Intel Burn to see if there is a difference.
