Regular readers of KitGuru will already know that the Noctua NH D14 is always at the center of our high end system builds, especially when it comes to overclocking articles. Today we are looking at the NH C14, a dramatic design combining two 140mm fans, in a stack based air flow system, demanding a height clearance of just 130mm.
The C14 design is not targeted at the extreme high end enthusiast overclocking audience, certainly not in the same manner as their D14 flagship product. The ‘top down’ design doesn’t tend to cool as effectively as a traditional tower design however it does give an added benefit of cooling the surrounding motherboard components. With a retail price of £65 in the UK, it isn’t cheap, but Noctua engineering standards are the best on the market.
This is Noctua’s third generation C Type top flow cooler and we already have high expectations that this will really deliver the goods.Noctua NH C14 Heatsink Review,
