Noctua Presents NH-D14 Premium CPU Cooler

Posted November 2, 2009 by admin in Cooling

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. 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, explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO.

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.
