Noctua har igennem de senere år virkelig slået deres navn fast når det kommer til effektive men også støjsvage CPU kølere. En af de nye er deres Noctua NH-U14S, der her bliver testet hos TechPowerUp.
Its not all sunshine and rainbows, however. The fact the NH-U14S may block the top expansion slot in some situations is frustrating. It won't affect many users, but some situations may have a GPU with a backplate cause problems. Granted, this can be avoided by changing the cooler's orientation on Intel systems, but that also nullifies its memory-clearance benefits on the Intel X79 platform. Then I am of course faced with the fact that on sockets other than LGA2011, users will have to stick to standard memory if using all four DIMM slots. The cooler's performance with a second fan, while not massively improved, does make it a serious contender; however, a second fan is not included. Users will of course also have to get used to the Noctua color scheme. While it does make their products stand out, the beige and dark brown colors are not to everyone's liking.
