No. It's what, 4 years old, maybe less, I really can't remember. 2 year warranties are entirely fine IMO but I suppopse I can understand those who want to be conservative might be attracted to lifetime.

This is about your Nocuta NH-14, if you do not mind could you please tell me, 1-did it fit alright? Or did you do some mods?
2-what are your idle and loads temps? with that 3.8Ghz on your I7
3- what is your 3.8Ghz vcore?
4- do you like your NH-14
Thanks H969

1) Yep it fits no problem. I have Corsair XMS memory installed which has quite a low profile, no large decorative heat spreaders so there are no issues at all. It's worth checking your RAM for compatibility but even if it is quite tall you can just mount the first push fan a little higher than usual and it will work. Since you have a P6T I see no problem with the motherboard and compatibility itself.

2) With an ambient of 20C my highest core idles at 35-36C, under full load (LinX) i'm at 62C max after an hour, and a few degrees less on Prime 95. I have a 4Ghz o/c profile stored in the BIOS which is 5C higher. Note my ambient of 20C is quite low there, so in the summer it would all be relatively higher. Also note that Prime95 temps will be a good bit lower than LinX.

3) My load vcore for 3.8Ghz is 1.224 when reported by CPU-Z. It's set a good bit higher than that in the BIOS since I don't use load line calibration. Every chip is different though, and a vanilla P6T doesn't have the multi phase current smoothing so you might well need a bit more, only some testing can determine that.

4) I'm extremely happy with the temps I get from the NH-D14, my previous cooler wasn't really up to the job for a 4Ghz overclock but the Noctua kills it. On top of that it's really quiet compared to the competition, the fans don't adjust speed and stay at a nice gentle 1200rpm the entire time. They supply some resistors you can fit to make the fans run even slower if noise is a big concern to you.

The one thing I would criticize is the look in the scout, it's a giant brick of a cooler and blocks the light from the LED fans in the scout case. Still, function over form I suppose.

Oh one other thing is that the top fan clips can be slightly tricky to fit once the cooler is installed, there isn't much space to get your fingers in there. I ended up gently prying it on with a screwdriver but know someone else who did it with his hands no problem - I must have fat fingers!

There are a few photos linked in my sig of it installed if you want to take a peek. I'm sure you'd be very happy with one if you decided on it.

Do you mean that you are working in a machine shop and you now can start using a laser?
Currently the OC is a work in progress since I haven't done it before (luckily the 930 has plenty of guides and is forgiving). Once I get something I like I'll repost temps.

My college has a full machine shop (mill, lathe, welding, water jet, laser, etc) where you can get trained on a variety of stuff. Since I'm a MechE I have the lathe/mill/sheet metal training all done and now I have laser cutter training done too.

Would like to get a H70 but they are just too expensive over here in the UK so I think im gonna get a H50 instead. At least with the H50 I can finally use my top side window fan slot

Even though I settled for the EVGA GTX 465, I'm having my doubts. I haven't purchased it yet because I'm having doubts on the card. In theory, I could crossfire my 5770. However, I don't want my card anymore and it bugged the hell out of me when it first came out. I just want a card that is reliable and can last me for a year and a half that is also under $300.

Go with evga 460's...better cards imo, cost less...use less power...great headroom.

Wow, that is some awesome answers! You even answered some I thought of after asking you the questions. You did your homework before buying the Noctua NH-D14!
Those are some nice vcores you are getting.
Yes noise is my major along with a cooler outcome and that is why I have been looking at newer coolers, I did not know that the NH-D14 stayed at a constant fan speed, those are some impressive cooling numbers being at a constant speed, I wonder how they do that?
Although if I remember corectly they run about 1200rpm? I have 5 fans on a controler other than my CM V8 and when I turn them all down to 900-1200rpm they are quite except for the side fan that needs to be 700-800rpm but the one that makes the most noise other then the side fan is the V8.
You have a very nice looking Scout!
I thank you for the speedy and very informative reply. +Rep

Yes it takes some time to get a good stable OC,( 3 weeks for me ) I will check back when you get it where you want it. I am sure you will be posting, as it is a milestone when you get a good OC, it was for me anyway

Wow congrats on your machine training, and wishing you a happy and prosperous carrier as an Engineer! +Rep

Regarding my vcore that appears to be the sweet spot for my chip, as you ramp up from stock it only takes a little nudge in vcore each time, but going from 3.8 to 4.0 takes a much bigger jump, I forget what I'd have to check the BIOS but since I have no real need for the extra 0.2Ghz I'm happy to leave it there.

Indeed noise was a concern for me and that's why the D14 won me over, the 1200rpm stock fans that come with it just make a pretty quiet woooshing sound. You'll find most of the top air cooler comparisons fit 2000rpm fans to the competition. If you fit 2000rpm fans to the D14 it destroys the competition, it really is a beast of a cooler, massive twin fin stack and 6 heat pipes per stack. I'm not a fan of that sort of noise though. There are so many fan configurations you can play around with, check out ehumes posts in the air cooling forum, he is the fan master.

On final point regarding side fans, you won't beable to fit a side fan in the upper slot of the scout with the D14 in place, it's too tall. Having said that I think Enigma posted a link to some thin fans earlier in the thread that would probably fit, but I suspect it would just interfere with the air flow more than anything. You can fit a normal 120mm side fan on the lower placement point though, but I haven't bothered.

Good luck and let us know how it works out if you get one!
