With a replaced sample, the NH-D14 puts out performance figures like its size screams it should be able to do.
While we donít have every high end cooler on the market to compare it to in our review, itís safe to say that the NH-D14 is one of the (if not the) best performing air cooler(s) out at the minute.
This still might not be the go-to cooler for the majority of people, but for those out there who want the best air performance then this is definitely it. The fact that it does so with quiet noise levels, like no other company out there at the moment, is just icing on the cake. Awesome performance and quiet computing in one package, yes please!
- Good performance
- Aimed at overclockers
- Overclocking on Air (hell yeh)
- Size interferes with RAM slots
Reality Check: Itís big, itís heavy, and itís expensive. This cooler is best suited for overclockers wanting to push their systems as far as possible using just air. If you need the best performance (with quietness to boot), this cooler is the top of the pile.
