Will definitely fit into that case, about the ram clearance just look at the picture catalyst posted above:

The first fan is really adjustable in height. smile.gif

It seems you really have 0 clearance with the R4E, dunno what would it be with the Evga Gtx 680 (backplated):

Hi all, here's a picture of my recently acquired used Noctua NH-D14

Using it to passively cool my mildly overclocked setup right now because the fans were too much noise for my current temps. Didn't come with LNA / ULNAs waiting to get my hands on some before I put the fans in.

Try using the fans at 5 Volts.

Thanks for the tip, it worked wonders for the 140mm fan.

I've also gone and bought a used NF-F12-PWM for $20 and I think I will use this in place of the NF-P12.

With that I will be able to use PWM to control the CPU fan, run the 140mm at reduced speeds and then use the NF-P12 as my rear exhaust fan to replace the stock CM 120mm that came with the case.

To remove the metal wire brackets, do I just bend one of the sides and pull it out? I hope I don't break it

i had the same idea as this, so i contacted Noctua directly.
here is the email i sent and the response i got from tech support.



07.05.2012 12:50 - Alan Gray:

Hello,

I recently purchased your D14 Cooler. So far, i am amazed at its performance!

I was wondering if i could enhance its cooling potential further by switching the factory installed NF-P12 to a NF-F12?

Would this increase of decrease the performance of the cooler?

many thanks,

Alan

08.05.2012 10:41 - Noctua.at


Dear Alan,

thank you for contacting Noctua.

Replacing the stock NF-P12 fan with a NF-F12-pwm will improve your CPU temperatures slightly, but to be honest it just isn't worth the candle, because the stock NH-D14 performance is quite good and upgrading the fan won't bring you that much improvement.

There is a NH-D14 3rd fan mounting kit available upon request which could be interesting for heavy overclocking. This kit includes all mounting parts for fitting a third fan onto a NH-D14, which might allow you to get the clock speed a little bit higher, but again the stock NH-D14 is more than adequate for stock speed.


Please don't hesitate to contact us again in case you have any further questions.

Kind regards,
Alexander Dyszewski

i would use the F12 you have coming as a case exhaust, and not bother switching the fans. as the performance increase is very slight. but hey, thats what i would do redface.gif


p.s by "candle" i think he means "hastle" smile.gif

Yea but their marketing department is selling the F12 as a high static pressure fan, so it would perform better on the heatsink... a very small gain, but I think if I can work out how to remove the mounting brackets from the P12 I will, since the P12 is more of a general purpose fan, it should push thru more CFM when less static pressure is required.

Plus having a PWM fan on my CPU_Fan header would be ideal for fan control =) If I'm not mistaken the CHA_FAN header near the rear exhaust should be able to control non-PWM fans (although that can be solved by connecting the CPU fan to the CHA header ... but I think it would mess with my head)

its best to keep in mind that if the 140mm is not matching the thruput of the F12 then you will be kicking air out of the side of the first radiator and not allowing an even flow through to the second. smile.gif

noted. I will keep that in mind when I setup the fan speeds. I do have a 200mm CM MegaFlow seated right above the NH-D14 though so hopefully, that would allow the air to be sucked up. In most cases though I would expect the PWM intake to be spinning at a lower speed while idle and the 140mm to be spinning at 900 RPM... so this means it would be fed less air and would suck air from around the radiator.

"Not worth the candle" is an old English expression that you still sometimes hear, even in the US.

 

As for P12+P14 vs F12+P14, check out chapters 5 and 7 in item 4 of my sig, compare the results. Or just compare the P12 PWM vs F12 PWM in chapter 7. Basically, identical cooling.
