Noctua NH-D14 - few compatibility questions

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hello guys! I decided i want to squizze more from my i5 when it comes down to OC.I need a better cooler for that though,Hyper 212+ isn't enough for Ivy Bridge @ 4.7Ghz with around 1.33V.I'm thinking of picking up the Noctua NH-D14.I really want the H100i and i have the funds for it,but i'm not sure if it's worth the risk of not being able to put it in my case.I have Haf 912 Advanced=same size of Plus and the standard HAF 912.OFFTOPIC: Will the H100i fit in HAF 912 Plus? if so,any proof?
So back on topic: My questions are as follows:
1)Will it be a problem that my motherboard is the Asrock Z77 Extreme4 which is inch shorter so it's not supported near the 24-pin ,pic:

The motherboards feels really well installed,but i'm still wondering.Afterall,the NH-D14 is 1,3kg
2)Will my case,the HAF 912 Advanced fit the cooler? Max CPU height of it is 175mm and the cooler specifications says it's height is only 160mm.
3) Will my ram modules be able to fit underneath the cooler? I have G.SKILL Ripjaws X 2x4GB 1600Mhz Click ? I don't know their height but i know that the cooler supports max ram height of 44mm.
4) Will it be much worse than the cooling performance of the H100i? I really like the H100i,i feel really bad that my case isn't supporting it officially.It supports it as an external radiator but i want it to be in my case,not on the outside.
Thx in advance and sorry for the wall of text.I just wanted to ask everything i had on my mind.

z77 extreme4 (no micro atx) fits with NH D14( I asked them) http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=compatibility_gen&products_id=34&lng=en#LGA1155_ASRock
yes, nh d14 fits on HAF 912( I had it)
yes, Ripjaws X fits, http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=compatibility_ram_gen&products_id=34&lng=en#DDR3_G.Skill
corsair h100 doesnt fit on HAF 912. by few Centimeters, so h100i for being 240mm rad unless they made h100i shorter, contact them for info, http://www.corsair.com/us/support/technicalsupport/

Google "H100 problems" and see how many people have had problems with it.

Google "NH-D14 problems" and see how hard you have to look to find any problems.

As for fitting I suspect the NH-D14 will fit no problem... as long as you use normal or low profile RAM.

I've seen a lot of people being able to fit their radiator internally,they have problem with the clearance for the fans.There are holes on my particular case that are made for 240mm radiator.I was thinking,if it's possible,to install the radiator internally and the fans on top of the case,which would also work but not so good looking.

Yea,i did it.
A lot of threads about the H100i problems with the pump or the software.But the pump was the main one i noticed.There aren't any with the Noctua.The reason why i want the h100i is simple - to have some space.The heatsink is really bulky and it would fill my entire case ,making it impossible to even see the motherboard.I like the sleek design of the h100i and it's amazing cooling performance.

Well,if i don't use the rear case fan,would the h100i work?I'm interested in the thickness of the radiator + fans.I've read this particular thread with this picture and they said it was a tight fit,but still a fit.(i mean rear fan+the h100)

Can't install it using the holes because it's a CLC cooler. Can't remove hoses to put them through the holes.

If you are interested in a good AIO system, look at the Swiftech H220. The pump is a real water cooling pump rated at 6 watts. All the other CLCs are rated about 2 watts. It's a CLC but you can open it up and add more components as needed. And Swiftech has a good track record of supplying quality water cooling products.

As for H100i amazing cooling performance.. well any of the top air coolers with 2500rpm fans and of course the same noise will cool about the same.

Heres a video review and data of H100, Silver Arrow SB-E and Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme. H100i is not 7c better cooling than H100... and SA SB-E Extreme is 7c cooler than H100 at same noise level.. well 1dBA louder. That leads me to believe that if SA SB-E with TY-143 fans does that well and NH-D14, PH-TC14PE, K2 are all about same than putting TY-143 or similar fans on them will give similar performance. wink.gif

The H220 is a 280mm radiator if i'm not wrong which i can only wish to fit in my case biggrin.gif And what does CLC stands for?
A picture from another user here on OCN.net:


Maybe it'll fit but it's hardware dependant,who knows...

You are mistaken. It's 120mm radiator and fans.
AIO = All In One; can be opened and added to and warranty is still valid.
CLC = Closed Loop System; Can't be opened without voiding warranty.
Quote:
From virtually silent to comfortable audible noise levels Our design objective for this product was to minimize the operating noise while preserving high thermal performance characterisitcs. At its lowest speed settings, the system is virtually inaudible. At its maximum speed, the H220 remains within comfortable audible noise levels.
Plug-and-Play The H220 is the easiest AIO liquid cooling kits to install bar none, and is even easier to setup than many high-end air coolers.
Superior Thermal Performance Thanks to its copper & brass dual 120mm radiator, high static pressure Helix 120mm fans, more powerful DC pump than any other AIO on the market, and because it shares the Award winning Apogee™ Drive II cpu waterblock design, the H220 kit delivers the same level of superior thermal performance that can be found in custom kits.
Expandability

The H220 differentiates differentiates itself from other AIO's by its ability to support additional liquid cooled components such as graphics cards, chipset, and/or additional radiator(s).

From a practical standpoint, this is possible thanks to:
The presence of a reservoir including a fill-port built into the radiator so that the system can be easily emptied or refilled by the user at will,
Enthusiast grade 5/8” OD black PVC tubing fastened to swivel fittings with an elegant clamping system that users can easily remove and safely re-install.
From a thermal performance standpoint, this is made possible by:
The high thermal capacity of the dual 120mm copper and brass radiator
The powerful high-pressure pump capable of driving sufficient flow to cool multiple devices in the loop.

Automatic speed control or fine-tuning right out of the box Both the pump and the fans are PWM compliant devices, allowing the H220 to be recognized and speed-controlled by the motherboard depending on CPU temperature just like any standard CPU cooler. As a bonus, the system includes a PWM splitter allowing connection of up to 8 PWM devices which can then be controlled as one by the motherboard.
Maintenance-free As shipped from our factory, the H220 CPU cooler requires no maintenance during its 3 year waranty period; a system refill is recommend at the end of 3 years. Under extreme ambient conditions, the system may need more frequent refills. If upgraded by the user, the interval of time between refills will depend on how users implement their customized loop.
Reliability Both fans and pump are rated for a 60,000 MTBF (Meantime Between Failures)
Support With over 10 years of experience designing, manufacturing and setting up liquid cooling systems, Swiftech® customer service can assist you in setting up and troubleshooting your system 6 days a week, 12 hours a day.

Here's a link to a good review of the Swiftech H220

I see the first production run is sold out. Just googled it and find no problems or issues
