Noctua NH-C14 CPU Heatsink Review - Noctua NH-C14 CPU Heatsink Review
Mon Mar 28, 2011 | 4:14P | PermaLink BY: Max Page
I once heard a very intriguing quote that went something like, "A wise old owl sat on an oak. The more he saw, the less he spoke. The less he spoke, the more he heard. Why aren't we like the wise old bird?" Let's pull up some of our good old high school English Language Arts skills, and answer the following question: What does an owl symbolize in this day and age? In fact, what does owls have anything to do with technology in the first place? Well, let's go over a little history lesson. In Greek culture, there is a little owl that represents the Greek goddess Athena. Unlike most gods and goddesses, she represents wisdom, science, and strategy; and goes by savvy considerations rather than brute force to endure quests and adventures. In society today, the accepted norm in which an owl symbolizes is intelligence and prudence with their distinct skills of observation in the dark. Are you catching on now? So, let me ask you again, what does owls have anything to do with technology? The first thing that comes to my mind is owls have nocturnal vision, and the word very much sounds like the company Noctua. From our brief history with Noctua, they are famous for noise optimized heatsinks and fans. As we have seen before from our reviews on products such as the Noctua NH-D14 and Noctua NH-U12P, both are heatsinks which are proven to be great competitors in the computer market. To add onto the list, what we have here today is Noctua's NH-C14 heatsink. So is this how Noctua pull it off? Is Noctua that wise old owl sitting in the oak? Keep your nocturnal eyes busy to find out!
