[Official] Noctua NH-D14 Club - Page 279

post #2781 of 3950
I have a Noctua NH-D14 because the fans are quieter than the Silver Arrow SB-E and because it has better compatibility charts (and better clearances in general)

However, this review is making me reconsider whether it was a good idea, could have slapped on quiet fans on a Silver Arrow SB-E:
http://www.vortez.net/articles_pages/noctua_nh_d14_se2011_review,10.html

The Silver Arrow SB-E has better passive performance by ~2.2 degrees Celsius (same heatsink in SB-E and SB-E Extreme).

I bought one of these babies as well smile.gif I am using it with an Intel 2600k and a MSI Z77 Mpower. I have a problem with it, it runs at full speed, no matter what settings I select in BIOS. Both stock fans are connected through the provided Y cable to the CPU cooler socket on the mainboard. Should I connect one fan to the CPU socket and the other one on a chasis fan socket ?

No need, even at 100% the fans are super quiet.

Maybe for you, for me they are very loud... I have a Fractal Design R3 and for my purposes, the Noctua cooler it is too loud smile.gif I will try the speed adapters and connect them to different cooler headers on the mainboard.

Speed adaptors just reduce the voltage to the fan thus slowing them down.

do you have the 2011 fans (4pin) or the older 3pin fans ???

your Mobo may not support 3 pin voltage control on the cpu fan header or if you have 4pin fans a PWM control (which I doubt)

Your manual should state what fan it can control connected to the CPU fan header. If you have 3 Pin fan some brands cannot control it only a PWM fan Asus for example are like this.

I have the 3 pin ones. The motherboard has 4 pin headers . I know what the speed adaptors do and I am fine with them. I will try to see with just 1 fan in the cpu fan header if it can be controlled. If it can't, I will use both speed adapters .

I tried with one and there was no effect. So I installed both speed adapters to the fans, I connected the 14" one to the CPU header and it's staying at 1050 RPM. The 12" one is connected to a case header and it's working at 700 RPM. The noise is acceptable and the temperatures are fine as well smile.gif

A regular D14 has Voltage-regulated fans. Unless your mb can do Voltage regulation like a Gigabyte mb, you cannot expect variable speeds. That's just the way it is. For variable speed fans you should get a Silver Arrow. It has PWM fans.

Pretty sure DeepCool Gamer Storm Assassin has PWM fans wink.gif
Phanteks PK-TC14PE come with an PWM adapter and splitter so you can use PWM mobo control. wink.gif
Be quiet! Dark Rock PRO 2 has PWM fans.
Themalright True Spirit,. Venomous, HR-02, etc are all PWM;)
