The NH-U14S is the series' first 140mm model and uses the new NF-A15 140mm fan. The NH-U14S features a 52mm design (15% larger than the NH-U12S) that is tailor-made for the LGA2011 platform. As a result, it doesn't interfere with the DIMM slots on this platform.

Easy to install.
Exceptional build quality.
Antivibration fan mounts.
Can mount a second fan.
Memory clearance on LGA2011.
May block top expansion slot.
Memory clearance on sockets other than LGA2011.
Lacks second fan.
Colors not for everyone.
Cost of adding a second NFA15 PWM fan.
