I think the corsair h series are overrated...high end air coolers are cheaper and perform just as well or better.

I dont know what kind of temps you were expecting to get, with that ambient which is pretty good, you are getting decent temps. You will see the D14 shine more with a higher OC around 4.8-5.0.

Do you even listen? your overclock is not high enough to fully use your d14 vs your old u12.

OMG. FFS LISTEN TO WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING. The nhd14 is just another aircooler at those pathetic clocks youre on. The way youre using it is like using a race car on a normal street. once you get to around 5ghz(ie, putting the race car on a racetrack) youre nhd14 will be the best choice youve made in a while. and really, reaching 5ghz shouldnt be a problem with your sandy.
