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: "Misschien wel dé verrassing van deze test: hoe kan een koeler die slechts 8 centimeter diep is vrijwel net zo goed koelen als gevaartes als de Noctua NH-D15? Deze Noctua U14S staat qua koelprestaties in de top 4, neemt niet veel plek in en is ook nog redelijk stil." (Koen Crijns, Hardware.Info)

Test verdict: "Considering that this cooler exceeded the cooling performance of the NH-U12S and the NH-U14S, and matched if not exceeded the low noise production of both, the Noctua NH-D15 heatpipe tower CPU cooler has to receive the Bigbruin.com 'Recommended' and 'Whisper Quiet' awards."
