After introducing its first 5V 40mm fan 18 months ago, Noctua today presented 5V versions of its award-winning quiet NF-A6x25 60mm model.
Noctua officially introduced its chromax line of anti-vibration parts that give users the option of colour-customising their fans to match individual build colour schemes.
Noctua CPU coolers need no introduction as the moment their name comes to mind, one is reminded of quality, performance and reliability. They have a number of coolers varying, in size, shapes but all of them have one thing in common. They are all geared towards achieving the best cooling performance. The two products of concern for this review are the NH-D15S and NH-C14S.
The NH-C14S is a C-type cooler that succeeds the NH-C14. However, it has a single fan as compared to the NH-C14 which has two fans. The NH-C14 has a deerper fin stack in order to make up for just having a single fan. This make things even more quiet while maintaing the same cooling effeciency. This single fan can either be mounted on the top of the heat which would in that case allow for more Ram clerance which is always good when using high profile memory which usually has a very tall heastink attached to it.
It's finally there! The Black Hole Mayhem, a competition for all enthousiasts and overclockers to go totally crazy! Before you enter your score to the server, be VERY sure you followed all the rules visible on this page. You got only 1 single chance to submit a score, don't throw this away. As mentioned in the announcement, the event will run from today, 18 August, until 27 August. The day after, we'll declare the winners of the contest and the random drawings.
Noctua has always strived to provide high end air coolers to meet the needs of enthusiast users, manufacturing a wide range of CPU air coolers, varying in size, both for the fan and heatsink but never compromising on quality and performance. For this review our focus will be on the two highest end single tower coolers from Noctua, the NH U12S and the NH U14S. The first thing that would strike someone would be the size of the heatsink of the Noctua NH U14S. Even though in size it may to a certain extent over-shadow the NH U12S, size is never a sure indication of performance.
