Breaking the 5GHz barrier with Noctua's NH-D14

Santiago de Chile / Vienna, June 18th 2010 - Just two weeks after Allan Campbell from KitGuru.net pushed his Intel Core i5 655K close to the 5GHz barrier with his Noctua NH-D14, the Chilean overclocking squad from UnknownTeam.cl established a new world record on air cooling. Using the Noctua NH-D14 on their 655K CPU, Carlos 'Dahaka' Cuevas and his team-mates broke the 5GHz barrier and reached an astonishing 5372MHz!

"What we can say about the NH-D14 is that the cooler was very easy to mount, it looked very big but we didn't have any problems with other components of the motherboard", says Hernán 'Jureleitor' Barros, Sponsorship and Marketing Cordinator of UnknownTeam.cl. "It is incredibly quiet even over 5 GHz, and it took us almost no effort to break the world record again. It was a great experience and we all felt very good about the cooler, it was just amazing!"

After Jeremy Pérez Díaz aka Yagami pushed the 655K CPU to a record speed beyond 5GHz using the NH-U12P SE2 last week, the team switched to the NH-D14 at a meeting hosted by PCFactory.cl's Rodrigo Salazar. Noctua's award-winning flagship model gave Carlos 'Dahaka' Cuevas and his colleagues additional overclocking headroom and allowed the Chileans to best their previous record by another 70MHz. These outstanding results are another testimony to the NH-D14's ability to support amazing clock speeds while maintaining superb quietness of operation.

Test verdict: "Noctua is in a great place market wise, because of good performance and quality fans.
