Test verdict: "Iím giving the Noctua NH-C14S the Gold award today, with its only hindrance being the cooler could have been slightly taller enabling dual fan configurations on boards that have a socket close to the DIMM slots." (Gavin Bonshor, Play3r.net)

Test verdict: "This heatsink kept up with the big boys. If you want a blow-down heatsink to cool your CPU and your RAM, the NH-C14S does a remarkable job. Additionally, there is room for most RAM, even with the fan in a pull position." (Edward Hume, Overclockers.com)

Test verdict: "Design sofisticati, materiali eccelsi e prestazioni da far impallidire la concorrenza sono ormai una costante in ognuno dei dissipatori targati Noctua.
Ed i nuovi NH-D15S e NH-C14S non sono da meno grazie a strutture davvero robuste ed efficienti e a ventole estremamente performanti e silenziose." (Alfonso Basilicata, NextHardware.com)
