Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler Review – Conclusion

What can we say? The results really do speak for themselves. When Noctua announce a CPU cooler, heads turn for a very good reason. They don’t stop halfway and quality is keyword with any product from the Austrian outfit. The NH-D14 tore the Thermalright Venomous X to pieces. That’s no easy achievement either, with it being regarded as one of the best CPU coolers on the market. The Venomous X does have a replacement though, something which we look to be reviewing very soon! It also left the CoolIT ECO A.L.C miles behind, proving that looks aren’t everything! If you want quality, the best and you won’t settle for anything less than perfect – look no further. This is the CPU cooler for you.

The NH-D14 retails for £55. That price is inclusive of two fans which cost £30 for both of them! That’s the CPU cooler alone for £25. Considering the Venomous X costs £40 with no fans, the NH-D14 offers superb value for money and is compatible with all current Intel and AMD sockets, unlike it’s counterpart. Put performance into the equation and purchasing anything else wouldn’t be so wise.
