Noctua NH-D14, Extreme Cooler for Overclockers

Noctua, may still rarely heard in Indonesia. Most people are more familiar with the brand of products Thermaltake, Cooler Master, Xigmatek, or other brand of computer accessories products homemade Taiwanese or Chinese company. Noctua cooling product is the trademark of a company in Austria, which in fact has long been in the computer world, especially to produce accessories for overclocking. This time Noctua cooling device processor tries to offer a sufficiently attractive, in terms of performance can be quite pretty extreme compared to the product - other similar products. Noctua NH-D14, probably from the product naming is a bit difficult to remember because it does not use any other name is more easily remembered as an example: Thermaltake SpinQ, Xigmatek Apache, Thermalright Baram, and so forth.

Noctua NH-D14 is a processor that uses air cooling (fan rotation) on the heatsink that is attached to the processor. Because only use the system cooling fan rotation less risky than using a processor cooling water or dry ice. Product design Noctua NH-D14 is a bit like 2 pieces of towers that are separated by a fan (fan) of the middle-middle and a fan (fan) again on the front. Basic materials and heatpipe heatsink makers of this product is aluminum and copper. Two tower heatsink Noctua NH-D14 are connected by 12 heatpipes with the number of 6 heatpipes on one side and 6 heatpipes on the other side. The size of cooling this processor can be quite large, perhaps this is one reason that makes the performance of the Noctua NH-D14 is very effective. Two fans (fan) on Noctua NH-D14 product has a different size, the series has the size of the NF-P12 120mm fan while the other one is a series of NF-Q14 with size 140mm. Although large enough, 2 pieces of fan (fan) only requires less power and produce a very effective round fan cools the heatsink on 2 pieces of towers (lattice technology (blade) accounted for 9 pieces that are designed specifically). Input power required to rotate the fan (fan) is only about 1 watt, while the rotation fan (fan) produced only about 1200 rpm to 1300 rpm, so that from the noise can be said to be very quiet.

When you buy a product of this Noctua NH-D14, will include some mounting brackets for the various socket processors, including Intel's socket LGA 775, LGA 1156, LGA 1366, and AMD Socket AM2, AM2 + and AM3 with a special backplate. That is quite unique from design Noctua NH-D14 is one of them is the asymmetrical design, or design a form that is not symmetrical. The function of the form that is not symmetrical is that the higher level of compatibility when mounted on various computer systems that sometimes have the shape and size are not the same. Form that is not symmetrical, it is also giving the room is quite a relief to the placement of the memory slots, and it also provides air flow (water flow) is very good on the components - components that are installed on the mainboard.

To prove the cooling performance of this processor, it is necessary to test the test on computer specs Intel and AMD. In testing with dual-core processor specs have results :

Stock Cooling

Specification table: Overclokingdilakukan at 4 GHz clock speed, the value in degrees Celsius.
The conclusion of the Noctua NH-D14 products:
More value:
- Noctua NH - D14 has a performance as expected, quite cold, and not noisy to measure such a large processor cooling. By using better cooling paste, most likely resulting temperature better (lower).
- Support the sales package is very comprehensive, ranging from screwdrivers, pasta, brackets, and so forth.
- Price is quite cheap for a complete cooling completeness (approximately 85 USD).
- Form a very large, requiring substantial chassis models also

Good luck!
