[Official] Noctua NH-D14 Club - Page 103

post #1021 of 3947
Anyone think I should change the orientation of the D14 so that the fans aim up into the 2 120mm exhaust fans at the top of my case?

not a good idea... then the GPU would sit too close to the push fan blocking air intake

Good point, I hadn't thought about that.

What I really need to work on now is upgrading my case fans. I get a 5 or 6 degree temp drop on my cores when i take the side panel off my case. My case has 1 120mm intake fan at the bottom front, 2 120mm exhaust fans on the top of the case, and 1 120mm exhaust fan on the upper part of the back side of the case.

Any recommendations on good case fans?

The included TIM is very good. (and here)

In both reviews, not far off from the leaders.

I agree with Ehume, The Noctua Paste is considered to be among the best TIM's
