D14 not so great - Page 3

post #21 of 45
If you were at 100C before and now at 95C that's a small difference.
If you were at 30C before and now at 25C that's a HUGE difference.

The gap should increase as you increase heat output, AKA increase your voltages and clocks and you will see which one is the cooling king.

We shouldn't think of which cools better, but which has the better cooling capability.


There is also the quietness factor involved....

Heh. He gets a max temp of 67c on his old cooler and expects some other air cooler to beat it by a lot. First of all, his old Noctua cooler was known to be a good cooler itself. Second, as you all have noted, he's not pushing his chip hard enough to separate out the good heatsinks from the great heatsinks. Of course, I'm not sure a 2600k really needs a heatsink as good as the D14. OP might have spent money he didn't need to spend.

D14 does awesome at higher clocks, if not shooting for higher clocks, then yes he wasted money.

I don't like what I see on the picture. That top exhaust fan.. meh..

Maybe you should take a look at this:

and this:
http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling/1037539-intake-fan-5-25-bay-warning.html


This is a good thread about your D14, maybe you could learn how to appreciate it after the read:
http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling/957861-secrets-d14-ch-1-introduction-solo.html


least, you could edit your posts so you don't get 3 consecutive ones in such short notices, it's better for everyone. It's not your case, but there is also a multi-quote button for easy of use

Hope you enjoy the links cheers.gif



PS: all the links I posted are from this guy:

Listen to him, he knows what he's talking about! thumb.gif
