What is it?
A vibrator with an anal egg? :confused:
Ha LOL but nope it's a hearing aid over the years of doing security at music concerts my high frequency range has plummeted through the floor leaving me with soft mushy hearing making it really hard to hear people in noisy environments aswell as with friends and family so needs must now I can hear everything as clear as a bell heck it's even got tinnitus control built in so no more bloody high pitch ringing 24/7

Happy to hear it helped. My tinnitus was kicking in real hard each time I had to work with ultrasonic cleaners so I know the feeling.

I have the same issue and I need a new set, My old ones are like 14 years old. My hearing loss is at 3000 hertz. Oddly enough its the level of most female voices ;)

They're like 6 grand USD. My insurance will cover most of it

Oh man, sorry about that. And let me add, I hear you. Two years ago I experienced sudden sensorineural hearing loss, with the same exact symptoms. Following hospital treatment, I was fortunate to regain most of my hearing. I don't need an aid, but my left ear is now insensitive to sounds over 15 kHz. In time the tinnitus either disappeared or my brain just adapted to it.

It's worth noting that the fan in question is one of their low RPM/Low CFPM models. A normal fan would likely be just fine.
For a modern, passive cooler, I am really surprised they used 6x 6mm heat pipes. Why not 8mm pipes? Why not more than 6x 6mm? Even my old Le Grand Macho RT can handle 90w passive. That is a 3770K @ 4500MHz running an 8GB load on Linpack Xtreme with No CPU fan installed, case fans not even at 7v, but 5v.

They dropped the ball on this one.

I do believe Noctua is taking an "err on the side of caution" approach with those CPU NH-P1 compatibility ratings.

My 8700K and 8086K both delidded with liquid metal TIM, and both are less likely (in my opinion) to cause any issues than my new 11600K, not delidded, yet binned.

Knowing your CPU's thermal qualities and values with past/current coolers is a better approach, I would think.

Saying that before I've even mounted/tested this thing, lol. I could be completely right or totally wrong. :laugh:

Going with a brand new syringe of NT-H1, and NOT the included NT-H2 that arrived in the box...

Let the mounting BEGIN! :)

You could just choose to ignore them and when they hit you up about it just say sorry they don't cover high pitched whiny

That's one perspective. I disagree. I think that Noctua HS is an example of excellent engineering.

Wait, why? NT-H2 is a better performer isn't it?

I'm beginning at a point I'm very comfortable with. My fan's range is about 200-300rpm to 1988rpms with the AquaComputer fan controller. I'm beginning at 700-750rpms, it's only a starting point, I'll test the entire range.

And move to the NT-H2 maybe later if needed.

The mounting was supersweet, the TORX wrench adds an amazing grip to the fastener heads - no slip - awesome Noctua! :)

Oh that is One Big Boy! :roll:

Here's stock idle. The cooler is remaining ice cold to the touch, very surprised it does not run warm, I can feel the cold air moving down the entire length of the fins. Lowest core temps about 1.0C above ambient room of 26C. You can see package temp reading 29C in the ROG display.

Considering the amount of heavy metal I was really hoping to match ambient room at stock idle, maybe I should move to an NT-H2 mounting. :confused:

It's a good thing that bench isn't at a steeper angle, or it would tip over!

Definitely looking forward to seeing thermal results.

As for 8000-series vs. 9/10/11: Remember that Intel started thinning their high end dice with the 9 series, and 11 series is a much larger core, i.e. heat is spread across a larger area and is more easily dissipated. All three should be easier to cool than 8000-series at the same power draw.

It's a good thing that bench isn't at a steeper angle, or it would tip over!

Definitely looking forward to seeing thermal results.

As for 8000-series vs. 9/10/11: Remember that Intel started thinning their high end dice with the 9 series, and 11 series is a much larger core, i.e. heat is spread across a larger area and is more easily dissipated. All three should be easier to cool than 8000-series at the same power draw.

Yep so big so tall so prominent - it's a bit goofy looking, a profile only a mother could love. lol :p

Actually the test bench is perfectly stable a very wide stance. :)

Believe it's going to work out fine long term, I'll remount with the newer Noctua thermal paste tomorrow morning and use their DOT method instead of my In-Line-With-Die method for paste application.

Also, DDR4 clearance with this config below is about 1.5mm, not touching but almost...

Also and addendum, if you have the space - the 140mm Noctua Industrial fan is PERFECT at moving air over this entire cooler, don't spend your money on that new 120mm super low rpm fan they just launched, unless you're using a very tightly enclosed case, then it's most likely an upgrade from running passive.

I'm beginning at a point I'm very comfortable with. My fan's range is about 200-300rpm to 1988rpms with the AquaComputer fan controller. I'm beginning at 700-750rpms, it's only a starting point, I'll test the entire range.

And move to the NT-H2 maybe later if needed.

The mounting was supersweet, the TORX wrench adds an amazing grip to the fastener heads - no slip - awesome Noctua! :)

Oh that is One Big Boy! :roll:

Here's stock idle. The cooler is remaining ice cold to the touch, very surprised it does not run warm, I can feel the cold air moving down the entire length of the fins. Lowest core temps about 1.0C above ambient room of 26C. You can see package temp reading 29C in the ROG display.

Considering the amount of heavy metal I was really hoping to match ambient room at stock idle, maybe I should move to an NT-H2 mounting. :confused:

That is a big lump of metal. But it's needed to be effective as a passive heatsink.

But I will keep my Noctua NH-D15 CHROMAX BLACK. I don't think it's wise to passive cool a overclock Ryzen 9 5950X. That would for sure overwhelm it. However it might be useful for a Ryzen 5 5600X cpu.

Agree 100% Tomgang.

But I'm not passively cooling, got a big 140mm spinning on top and even at 750rpms the cold air is removing out the bottom and lower sides, so it's extremely effective - and cooler remaining very cold it passes the touch test. lol

Is it too much to ask for stock idle minimum T at ambient room? :ohwell:

1C above right now with the NT-H1 paste, will delta to NT-H2 tomorrow.

Nope, it's pretty good I think with almost ambient temp on the cpu.

But I am more interested in, what are the temp at 100 % load on the cpu over a longer period of time?

Cause that is where the real test is.

I'll get to load testing within the next 2days, I start slow and don't move very fast, going to remount the cooler 2-3more times and recheck stock idle before I move to overclocks and loads. :)

Right now, I'm waiting for a new Z590 DDR4 kit to arrive UPS from Newegg so a bit distracted, wondering why it's soooo late.

The last component to finish this build, hooray! :D
