It seems kind of stupid that the option of running them silently or at full power depends on which cable you use. I'd like to run them at lower speeds at idle and have it scale up to top speed at around 60c.

Does your motherboard have a smart-fan feature?
Should be located under system health in the bios....

CPU-NB 1.35V

I have tried reseating it over and over again with no improvement in temps. I am using IC diamond since I have no stock TIM left.
i get about the same temps with my i7 at 3.8ghz on 1.28v, so being at a higher voltage, that temp doesn't look bad to me

It does, and the software the came with my Motherboard says its run at 60% Fan Speed right now, but it also says its at 1330 RPM. When I do a speed test with my CPU Fan, 20% Shows 1300 RPM and 100% shows 1330 RPM.

AFAIK your mb cannot control fans with Voltage. Only PWM. Noctua fans are Voltage-controlled, so your fans will be going 100% all the time.

I hope you guys don't mind me asking a question as my first post. Although I've upgraded and replaced parts in computers before, this will be my first build from scratch.

I'm really nervous about tightening the screws. The instructions stating that tightening until it stops sounded easy enough, but they don't stop! I went in a criss-cross pattern and each time I'd go onto the next screw, it could go a little bit more. I bought a toolkit that turned out to be magnetic garbage, so I was forced to use the provided "L" shaped screwdriver that gives too much leverage, I think. Eventually, I started to feel metal on metal grinding. I took everything apart, and the thumbscrews were starting to engrave circles in the 2 upper brackets.

Noctua's tech support was quick to respond, but also mention that under-tightening can be just as bad as over-tightening. The results of any online searches have been all over the place and not very specific. Reviews state that the kit is designed to prevent over-tightening, because there is a positive stop on the bottom stud. While this may be true, the thickness of the motherboard + the plastic spacers make that point irrelevant, since spacer ends up being higher than the end of the threads.

I ended up buying some inexpensive Craftsman screwdrivers that don't have a magnetic charge. Hopefully, these will give me a better feel.

I'd really appreciate as much feedback as possible about how tight everyone made the backplates on your motherboards. Also, although I haven't gotten that far yet, is there a definite positive STOP for the final 2 screws used to hold the NH-D14 down? I hope I don't run into the same problem.

Thanks for the help, and I've really been enjoying this thread! Great pictures!

One little tip for you.
If you lower the middle 140cm fan a little it will cool your mobo components.

You can but it will be less efficient because you will be drawing in warm air from your graphics card.
