Noctua strikes again and delivers the newest concept in their cooling line-up. With all the CPU coolers I have received over the years I gained a lot of respect for the Noctua name and simply, I love the "professional" or "heavy-duty" feel of the Noctua coolers. Even the smaller 90mm fan driven coolers have the feel of a superior cooler before you even strap it on to see (and not hear) the results they produce.
This new cooler is a takeoff of the NH-C12 SE14 with a bit, well, a lot of the NH-D14 incorporated in the design. Taking the idea of the NH-C12 SE14, Noctua is offering a proper 140mm fan driven version this time, rather than adapting a fan to a smaller cooler. This isn't just a simple enlarging of the old cooler either; Noctua rethought the concept, and at first glance it looks like half of a NH-D14 that has been bent to a horizontal arrangement, or it allows the fans to blow down on the motherboard. Taking things a step further, Noctua offers this cooler the benefit of two NF-P14 fans included to keep temperatures at bay.
It seems every time I look at a Noctua cooler that is fresh to the scene I end up really impressed with the coolers on top of better things like reduced sound levels and temperatures. I say we jump right into things and see just what this new concept offers us. Hopefully, past experiences with Noctua aren't going to change any time soon, and I will have yet another product from Noctua to recommend to anyone in search of quality air cooling without making your head hurt from the droning noise that emanates from most tower chassis'.
