NH-U14S Backplate

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a question, I need to know when the NH-U14S was released. Why?

Let me explain.
According to Noctua compatibility list my MOBO (P8Z68-V Pro) requires a backplate rev. 1.5 or 2.
So, checking the backplate revisions, I found that any cooler release after April 2013 will have an updated version of these backplates.

The person who is selling me this, won't let me know, I mean, I ask for that information and he told me that it should fit. But didn't provide the answer for my question. (It was, what backplate revision this cooler you're selling me is? )

I know Noctua will update cost free this backplate, but since I'm from a country where Noctua has resellers and partners no more, I'm worried not to be able to install this cooler.

I hope you understand my question.

I found the Press Release in the official webpage.
It seems it was released on April 2013, according to this, it should come with backplate revision 1.5 or 2.

Do you think I need to check anything further?

Indeed.

This is the reply.

Rev. 1.0 could be problematic on this mainboard but this backplate was only included with a few hundred coolers of the first batch. We were using Rev. 1.5 for 9 months and all new coolers are coming with Rev. 2.0.

Thus it is highly unlikely that you will end up with a Rev. 1.0 backplate, unless the reseller has the cooler in stock since last May and hasn't sold it yet.

Good customer service and fast.
I usually don't get any of my questions back frown.gif

Ok. Thanks!
