Combining a massive six heatpipe dual radiator design with an exquisite NF-P14/NF-P12 dual fan configuration, the NH-D14 is built for ultimate quiet cooling performance. Topped off with a tube of Noctua’s award-winning NT-H1 thermal compound as well as the new SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system, the NH-D14 is an elite choice for the highest demands in premium quality quiet cooling.
6 heatpipe dual radiator design 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 in dual fan mode.
Dual NF-P14/NF-P12 fan setup The NH-D14 sports a premium quality dual fan setup consisting of Noctua’s award-winning NF-P12 (120mm) and NF-P14 (140mm) fans, both of which feature Vortex-Control Notches, SCD technology and SSO-Bearings in order to achieve a perfect balance of performance and quietness.
Asymmetrical design for high compatibility An asymmetrical design that gives more clearance towards the RAM slots ensures good compatibility despite of the cooler’s size. The NF-P12 fan can be moved upwards or left off in order to further improve compatibility.
Excellent component cooling 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, thus ensuring excellent component cooling performance.
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, contact pressure and ease-of-use.
NT-H1 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.

As far as air coolers go, Noctua hit it out of the park with the NH-D14. It's quiet and the cooling performance it delivers is great. While it's not cheap, you get what you pay for with Noctua's NH-D14: top of the line air cooling performance.
Noctua's new NH-D14 is a huge cooler, both in physical size and performance. The build quality is excellent and the mounting solutions are very robust and easily installed. Potential users will also have to do their homework to be sure that this monster will fit on their mobo and in their chassi
The Noctua NH-D14 is costlier than the competition, but stick one in your machine and you won't be sorry. It's a quality item, it works extremely well, and it installs easily enough for those with a little experience.

Très bon refroidisseur si vous penssé à overclocker votre ordinateur. garde mon pc toujours en deça des 50 degrés. Le seul petit hick c'est qu'il vous faut un énorme boitier pour le rentrer vérifié avant d'acheter
This thing is HUGE. I am coming from the Noctua NH-U12 (pretty large) and this thing makes it look like a midget. I'm glad i have a huge case for this fan...it fit fine but i can see it not fitting in other setups.
This HS is the best yuou can get. I have this in another computer for one year and it still rock. Keep my i7 950 z 4Ghz cooler than the i7 at stock clock with the stock cooling! I just bought asnother one for a i5 4670k z 4.5Ghz and it keep it cool without any problem. I would recommend it to anyone over the small water cooling kit. Just be sure it can fit in your case (watch out for case with side pannel fan) and be sure to get RAM stick that are compatible with it (Look on their website).
So after doing some pretty heavy research into what cpu cooler I wanted, I finally settled on this guy. I've owned it for about 2 weeks now and all I can say is I'm very impressed. My cpu went from idle temps at about 30c and load temps at about 45-50c with the stock cooler to about 15-20c idle and 40c max with a heavy load. It runs quietly, looks good imo and was a lot easier than I expected to install. My only complaint is it's big, like a lot bigger than it looks on YouTube videos or pictures, so a lot of ram isn't compatible and it's a serious pan to get fans connected to the motherboard once it's installed, but the size is probably what helps it cool so well.
I got this cooler on a haswell i7. After reading reviews on this, my expectations for its ability to be noiseless may have been too high. While it is not loud at all, I can still hear it very distinctly at over 5 meters away (I unplugged all other fans and hdd to test the sound). Installation for it was very straight forward and easy to understand with the included manual. Also, it comes with a lot of accessories should you need them. I might try the fans with the lower rpm cable that it comes with.
I didn't want to make the move to liquid cooling so went with the next best thing. This thing is a beast, but works. My pc sits at 20C at idle and after an hour of gaming 25C. Running my 4770K at 4.5GHz and I have no heat issues at all. I ran cinebench to test stability and under 100% load it did reach 50C, but within seconds after completion temps had dropped back down to 25. It is big so make sure your system is compatible (case size and ram choice). Fans can be moved up on the radiator to give you some more room to fit ram, I had to move my 120mm fan up to fit over Corsair Vengeance Pro ram. Radiator just fit over them so do your research before you buy.
I purchased this thing when I decided to do a case upgrade for my system (i5-760, i55 Sabretooth Mobo, dual XFX ATI Radeon 5850s). In order to make it work, I bought a case that would fit this monstrosity (Corsair Air 540 from a Antec DF-30) as well as purchasing new RAM that would fit (AMD Performance Edition 2133MHz). The results have been great, I replaced the one 120mm that came with the cooler with a second Noctua 140mm that matches the other. It looks awesome, fits with the RAM, and most importantly cools GREAT.
With my Core i5 760 overclocked to 4.2GHz, RAM to 2100MHz, under Intel Burn Test at max, I did not see the temps go over 65C under long durations of stress. At idle, temperatures are the closest to room temperature I have ever seen from any air cooler.
