    Noctua presents NH-D14 premium cooler


    Vienna, November 2nd 2009 - 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 and quietness.

    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 heatsinks.

    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.

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

Test verdict: "Noctua heeft met de NH-D15 weer laten zien dat het heer en meester is op het gebied van luchtkoeling. De NH-D15 weet ontzettend goede prestaties neer te zetten op zowel het gebied van koeling als geluidsproductie. Hij weet in ieder geval veel waterkoelsetjes te evenaren of zelfs voorbij te streven."

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."
