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 NF-P12
(120mm) fans. Both fans feature Vortex-Control Notches, SCD technology
and SSO-Bearings in order to achieve a perfect balance of performance
The NH-D14's asymmetrical design gives more clearance towards the RAM
slots and thus ensures good compatibility despite of the cooler's size.
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
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.

The NH-D14 will be available by mid-November at a recommended retail
price of EUR 74.90 / USD 84.90.
