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.

The NH-U14S standing as the best cooler of our shootout, assuming price isn't an issue. It may cost $75, but the NH-U14S is worth every penny if you want the best performance, operating volume and great compatibility. For whatever it's worth, regardless of whether you buy the best or worst aftermarket option...

So did Noctua accomplish what they were setting out to do with the NH-U14S? I would say so! One problem many people have always had with aftermarket CPU coolers is getting them to fit with memory that has larger heatspreaders. Since most enthusiast...

Noctua CPU Cooler Final Thoughts While I was aware of Noctua's reputation previously, this is the first opportunity that I've personally had to test one of their coolers. It's obvious why they've garnered the reputation that they have as barely any...

We recently looked at the NH-U12S from Noctua and found it to be an overall good cooler for smaller systems that tended to struggle with higher heat loads. For the enthusiast crowd Noctua has released the larger NH-U14S that promises to address this...

The Noctua NH-U14S is an excellent performer overall but when you also take into account its size, it's fairly impressive. That such a thin, single fan, single tower heatsink can rub shoulders with bigger, heavier, premium coolers is delightfully...

Noctua keeps rolling along with their high end coolers designed to tame the heat of today's modern processors. In this review we will be taking a look at two of their new heatpipe tower coolers, the NH-U12S and the NH-U14S. As you might be able to figure out these coolers feature a 12cm and 14cm fan, respectively, and are the latest in their award winning U-series of coolers. The coolers themselves implement U-shaped heatpipes within a compact array of fins intended to provide broad compatibility with a variety of systems, especially when it comes to avoiding interference with system...

This is a premium product from a specialty manufacturer that is both thermally effective and acoustically pleasing. Although I was impressed with the NH-U14S and would happily use it in any of my own personal systems, I'd probably be just as satisfied...

A few weeks ago, I was driving home from a friend's house. As I merged into the highway, my radar detector received a strong Ka band signal from behind. My detector does not false; Ka band alerts simply means police. Let me clarify I do not normally...

Noctua has a good heatsink on their hands with the NH-U14S. As far as looks are concerned, most people are either going to love it or hate it due to the beige and reddish-brown color scheme of Noctua's fans. Regardless of what you think of the color...

So, I never shot my eye out with the Ka-Bala game, and the feeling isn't necessarily about Christmas, per se. It is really about the anticipation. Everyone has their own “Christmas” for that. Gamers get that feeling while waiting for the download of...
