Building on the proven basis of the successful NH-C12P, which has received more than 100 awards and recommendations from the international press, the NH-C12P SE14 now comes with Noctua's new NF-P14 140mm fan for further improved quiet cooling performance as well as the new SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system. Topped off with Noctua's pro-grade NT-H1 thermal compound and adding support for both LGA1366 and LGA1156, the NH-C12P SE14 is a premium quality quiet cooler that provides lots of airflow for near-socket mainboard components and excellent case compatibility at a height of only 114mm.
Proven 6 heatpipe design Recommended by more than 100 international hardware websites and magazines, the NH-C12P heatsink is renowned for its excellent quality and thermal performance.
C-type design with Airflow-Gaps Due to the down-facing design, two large Airflow-Gaps and the oversize 140mm fan, the NH-C12P SE14 provides superior cooling for near-socket motherboard components.
NF-P14 140mm premium fan Further improving the original NH-C12P’s much acclaimed quiet cooling performance, the NF-P14 is a highly optimised, premium quality 140mm fan with Vortex-Control Notches for superb quietness and outstanding aerodynamic efficiency.
High compatibility The down-facing c-type design allows for low height as well as excellent motherboard and case compatibility, making the NH-C12P SE14 suitable for many smaller or desktop style cases.
SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system Noctua’s enthusiast grade SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting provides broad socket compatibility (LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA775, AM2, AM2+ and AM3) and meets the highest demands in safety, performance and ease-of-use.
Noctua NT-H1 high-end thermal compound Noctua's much-acclaimed NT-H1 is a well proven pro-grade TIM solution that provides minimum thermal resistance, excellent ease-of-use and outstanding reliability.

I like that it provides some additional airflow down on the motherboard and I've oriented the fan to help move air over my RAM. It isn't much but it helps by a few degrees and every little bit counts. RAM in the first slot of my motherboard(Asus Z77 Sabertooth) is inaccessible with this heatsink installed. I knew this would be the case but it is an inconvenience that should be noted. Won't be an issue once everything is installed unless you end up monkeying with the RAM frequently.
Great heatsink. Have been using it for more than two years. At first I wasn't getting the results I was hoping for, but then I found out my MB upped the voltage on my phenom ii 965 BE and my case had garbage airflow. Replaced the case and lowered the voltage to 1.375. Temps are low.
I put it on my PhenomII x6 which was running at 43 idle, 50 under load. Once I replaced the original HS and put the Noctua SE14 my temps went to 38 idle, 45 under load. 5 deg difference was nice but the big difference was that I wasn't hearing the stock fan winding anymore! The new fan is quiet even under load, you also have options to put an in line resistor to slow down the Noctua fan to make it even quieter but it's quiet as is.
Installation can be tricky. Make sure to install the base before mounting the motherboard. I had unmount and reinstall the mainboard without reading the complete instruction for the cooler. Wished they had it in BOLD in and as the first line of instruction.
Great cooler, absolutely awesome performance with next to no audible noise. Keeps my i7 2600K idling at 28-33 C, and at 4 GHz (VCore at 1.2V), keeps it just under 57 C. That being said, the cooler is fairly massive, so you should check the clearance before purchasing (my G.Skill Ripjaws-X memory clears it fine, but I have to re-seat the heatsink if I want to remove one of the modules or add more DIMMs).
I was a bit "forced" into buying this cooler, as most other ones are far bigger, and there were risks that they wouldn't fit in a CM 690 II Advanced case with side fans installed, and I didn't have the case in hand to check. As I planned on using 2 side fans, I wanted to reuse the fan that comes with the cooler as a 140mm case fan. Also, I bought this as a combo with the i5 2500k, which was very cheap.
