[Official] Noctua NH-D14 Club - Page 289

post #2881 of 3949
I cannot remove the middle fan. How do you get the fan clips out? I feel like I'm applying too much pressure and I don't want anything to break. Sorry for the noob question.

Yes I used the stock clips from the original fans it's a tight squeeze but it fits perfect.

Putting your D14 in the same orientation as mine will work fine with stock fans and all.

Remember my TY-140's did not change my temps they were installed for there PWM functionality and because it looks ridiculous thumb.gif

Too late, I plan to saw the new TY-140 I have just for consistency.

I like them simply because they are quieter than the stock fans. I'm pretty sure my temps would be better with another TY-140 instead of a AP-15.

AH fun isnit!...some things i have tried:

A nice pair of Pro's kit needle nose pliers or similar small sprung or long needle nose you can pick up a a electronics shop will help to get into real tight spaces like in between fans or GPU's. I always disconnect power to the PC and disengage the GPU clip first. Then the top clip is easier to pull past the detent since it is under less of load. The more you work the clips the easier it may get to remove/install them.

When I get impatient I jamb my finger in and up to force it off well supporting the cooler with my other hand. The tower has a fare amount of flex in it, and I have yet to hurt the tower or the board, but I am sure there is always a breaking point. This approach works well once you get the hang of it but I have a few scraped knuckles and a few bent fin edges from early days of getting pissed taking them off.

Worse case is I have actually removed the board/installed the board with the hole unit installed, by doing that though I am unable to secure the top middle motherboard PCB mounting screw

Finally got them off.

Thanks for the help ryan w!
post #2888 of 3949
Nice work! now to install it lol always easier than removing, when you do install make sure the fan body is on the rubber mounts and I always get the middle fan as low as possible to get the little bit of VRM cooling it offers

im not yet an owner of the D14 but i cant imagine adding a 3rd fan helping much. especially if that 3rd fan is identical to the middle 140mm fan i would think
