most swear that it is. Ehume will tell you that it matches the SA.
Someone should email Noctua and see if those of us who already have D14's can upgrade to the new PWM Fans............

Maybe mention that you plan to upgrade to 2011 and get the new mount at the same time cool.gif

Yeah but if you read the article the zalman has a higher idle temp and the same load temps as noctua.

To top it off, it has to achieve these temps with three fans factory fitted whilst the Noctua managed it with just two.

I will admit the Zalman achieved the same temps with lower dBA....but for the sheer fact you can change the fans/add fans to the noctua, I would put my hand on my heart and say its the best in the market.

uh do some more research. that one article is crap. the CNPS 12X when tested the fan was hitting even low profile ram on some motherboards.

here is the video where he explains the fan clearance issues skip to 8:08 and you can see.[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ik4jxk07RMo[/ame]
