Noctua NH-U14S CPU Cooler Review


Yep.. new review by me!

Link: http://blog.testfreaks.com/review/review-of-noctua-nh-u14s-cpu-cooler/

"Noctua has recently introduced two new CPU coolers to the market, and I have one of them for review today, the NH-U14S. This cooler is a tower style, and it’s rather large, it can accommodate two of Noctua’s NF-A15 150mm fans but it’s designed so that you can also use larger style performance ram with it and to fit with most every socket configuration out today. The cooler is also designed to work well with SLI or Crossfire setups, it’s made to not get in the way but yet still provide excellent performance. I’ve put the cooler up against several others and as expected from Noctua it performed very well even with an overclocked CPU, but yet remained virtually silent. So read on to learn more about an excellent cooling solution…"

Review Snipit:
"Noctua is always innovating with new product designs and they’ve just introduced a new tower style cooler, the NH-U12S which is what I have for review today. This cooler is a thin design, it’s only 45mm deep which makes it ideal for using with performance style ram that utilizes large style heatspreaders as it doesn’t protrude over the ram slots of the majority of motherboards made today. The cooler utilizes the Noctua NF-F12 which is a 120mm forced focus fan that’s made specifically for use with CPU coolers. The NH-U12S can use one fan or you can purchase an additional fan for even more cooling performance, with one or two fans the NH-U12S runs virtually silent like most all Noctua products. I’ve put the NH-U12S up against several other coolers for comparison, and it performs very well indeed, so read on to learn more… "

Review Snipit:
"Noctua is company known for high quality and excellent performing CPU coolers and fans. It’s safe to say that most of their product line is aimed at the high end user who wants to push their system or CPU to the limits. Enthusiasts, or overclockers they would be called, and that’s all fine and good if you’re that type of person, Noctua certainly has a cooler for you that will keep your CPU cool even under overclocked conditions. What happens if you’re not one of those types of people? What about those who really don’t care much about overclocking, or those that much prefer an SFF or HTPC style system? Your choices are pretty limited when it comes to choosing a CPU cooler that is quiet and yet performs well and one that’s high quality. Noctua has a solution for you now, they’ve ventured into making coolers made for more cramped systems, and they’ve brought all of their knowledge and skills from making enthusiast style coolers to do this so you can expect a top-notch product . They’ve come out with two of these coolers, one of which I have for review today called the NH-L9i, where the ‘I’ in the name stands for Intel, the other cooler is the NH-L9a which is for AMD CPUs specifically. So I have the NH-L9i for review and I’ve put it up against a larger Noctua cooler for comparison as I was curious to see how well this tiny cooler would perform. So Read on… "

Quote: "Today I’ve got a double review for you of two ARCTIC products that can work separately but work better overall when combined. The products are the ARCTIC RC Pro Cooler for Ram and RC Turbo Module PWM and they are to help keep your ram cool. The RC Pro Cooler for Ram is basically a heatsink you can apply to bare ram while the RC Turbo Module PWM is a double fan attachment that helps to further cool things off."
