Noctua today officially introduced its new
NH-C14 CPU cooler. Sporting an exquisite, uniquely flexible 140mm dual
fan setup of two Noctua NF-P14, the NH-C14 is a highly customisable,
premium-class top-flow solution that further boosts the renowned quiet
cooling performance of the company's much acclaimed NH-C12 series.
"Our NH-C12 coolers are renowned to rank among the most capable top-flow
cooling solutions on the market, so we're truly proud to offer a further
substantial improvement in quiet cooling performance with the new
NH-C14", says Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "This model really closes
the gap to good tower coolers while being much lower in height and
ensuring better component cooling."
The NH-C14's six heatpipe c-type design with two NF-P14 FLX 140mm fans
brings top-flow cooling performance to a new level while maintaining a
much lower profile than today's tower-style coolers and providing
excellent airflow over RAM modules and near-socket mainboard components.
The two supplied NF-P14 premium fans can be installed on top and
underneath the fin-stack to configure the cooler for maximum performance
in dual fan mode and either lower profile or maximum component clearance
in single fan modes. Run with a single NF-P14 fan underneath the
fin-stack and with the top fan removed, the NH-C14 measures only 105mm
in height, which makes it ideal for use in smaller enclosures and HTPC
applications. Run with a single fan on top, the NH-C14 provides a full
65mm of clearance for chipset coolers or RAM modules with high
Topped off with a tube of Noctua's award-winning NT-H1 thermal compound,
Low-Noise and Ultra-Low-Noise Adaptors (U.L.N.A.) as well as the
professional SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system (LGA1366, LGA1156,
LGA1155, LGA775, AM2, AM2+ and AM3), the NH-C14 forms a complete quality
package for the highest demands.
