I always transport my rig laying horizontally in the back of my wagon so when I go over rough patches of road etc the stress is reduced.

Good choice, noctua manufacture their products to the highest standards and are ultra quiet to boot.
You won't regret it.

Noctua's hole mission objective with fans & cooling is silence.


Also, the D14 is far superior to even the H100 from Corsair. Pick it up if you have the cash.
This, i have 3 fans on my noctua and they are very silent. Now my graphics cards, that's another story lol...

Without trying to derail the thread too much, these sorts of concerns are simply untrue and unfounded. Even a humongous heatsink is securely screwed to the MB, which is in turn securely screwed (or at least should be) to your case. Any concerns about transportation or "bend" is cynical and pessimistic thinking. Your motherboard is made out of a very strong insulating material which has a great tensile strength and malleability. There is simply no way a heatsink would ever exert enough force to tear out the small in between screw region of the motherboard it's attached too.

That being said, grab a D14 or a Silver arrow. these all in one cooling situations don't cool as well and are EXTREMELY loud. The entire point of the D14/SA is for great cooling at nearly silent operation. As someone who owns an SA, I can personally attest to it's silence, especially amidst the cacophonous gpu fan.
