So I got my NH-D14 today. And it is perfectly compatible with my RAM (Patriot Viper DDR3), despite the compatibility list on Noctua's site saying otherwise. Here are a few pics to show the clearance of the heatsink over the heatspreaders on the RAM:



The metal fins of the heatsink only go over the first DIMM slot on a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R motherboard. Also, between the 1st picture and the 2nd & 3rd picture, I moved the fan down by one set of fins to clear my case's side panel fan.





I had to move the fan up a little higher than it came as, but its still not too bad, and it clears the side panel fan on my case (HAF 932). The heatsink, however clears the RAM heatspreaders by quite a bit, so anyone else (Recipe7) who has the original Patriot Viper RAM should be fine with this heatsink.

My temps seem a bit high though compared to what Recipe7 said it should be around. With an ambient currently around 29c, my idle is ~40c, while it was around 50c with the stock intel heatsink, and at full load (prime95 large FFTs) I get 63c with the Noctua, while I used to get around 89c with the stock cooler. Are these temps a bit high? I think I might not have done a good job with the thermal paste application, but I don't want to go through the hassle of taking off the heatsink and re-attaching it. Maybe I will reseat with a better thermal paste application when I decide to overclock, but until then, I think I will leave this as it is, since it looks fine.
I'm at work and I don't have access to my bookmarks. But please re-post these in my RAM clearance thread.

With an ambient of 29c you have wonderful temps on load.

I have my i7 950 running at STOCK CLOCKS, with the lowest V Core I could get stable. (around 1.075) And I still get 60C full load. I'm curious, how in the hell do I hear people with the same CPU, overclocked to 4GHz, not breaking 70C. I have the heatsink seated properly, right amount of TIM, double checked everything I can think of. I DO NOT KNOW why my CPU is running so hot. I know that no 2 chips are alike, but I can't imagine the temperature difference being that much. Anyone willing to help me out?
With an abient of 23c and a Vcore of 1.075v doing stock clocks, your temp looks high. You used the correct technique to apply it. The only thing left is airflow. So try this: run a load test with the side panel off. If the temps remain high, contact Noctua tech support. You may have a bad heatsink, but only testing will tell.

On my case the CM Storm Scout, I can only mount 1 side fan as the D14 is in the way for the top fan placement...But what point I am trying to make is the fan I am using is CM R4 and any RPM over 1200 and it takes the cooling away from the D14, so try lowering the RPM's on those side fan's or stop them altogether and test for the best air flow in your case.
Two side fan's blowing against the fan's on the D14 could be having a negative affect.

Very nice pictures!!
I like that index card deal, did you do any testing with it like that?
Did you put the cards top and bottom?

No you're fine lol, I have the same CPU and am hitting 60C on stock speeds, just upset.

Well the side fans on the Phantom are different, they blow air more in the HDD area, not right on the cpu.

Are you suggesting he is dealing from the bottom of the deck?

I only put one index card on the side. It isn't meant to do a lot, just prevents air from going into the space between the heatsink and side panel (where it would do nothing for cooling).
