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
(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
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
(LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA775, 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.
