Noctua are an Austrian company well known in enthusiast circles for producing some of the finest fans on the market. I will hold my hand up – all of my systems at home incorporate their 120mm fans (NF12’s) on one level or another, simply because they are class leading products. Fantastic CFM performance with minimum noise – making them not only ideal for media centers, but for hot running gaming rigs.
Today we are looking at their NH D14 cooler which is quite honestly one of the largest coolers I have ever seen. Noctua have designed this product to have not one, but two rows of aluminum cooling fins rising from the coolers base. Each of these has a dedicated fan to keep them cool – with probably one of the most intelligent airflow designs we have seen in recent years. Each of these cooling banks is created from 42 individual fins and although they are relatively wide in regards to spacing, the surface area is massive which should more than compensate.
Noctua have always made top quality products so we have high hopes that this cooler really will deliver the goods.
