[Official] Noctua NH-D14 Club - Page 293

post #2921 of 3947

I just replaced the 500GB HD on my wife's Core2 Duo E7200 Dell with a 500GB Samsung 840. Even though my wife's rig is from 2008 and only has SATA II, everything sped up, including the graphics: went from 3.7 to 5.4 on WEI. Dramatic transformation.

 

And of course, when we get the laptop my wife says she really wants, we can move the SSD over. It's only 7mm thick.

 

In all, I'd recommend an SSD for any rig, especially now with after-Christmas sales going on.

I want to request the mounting kit (For LGA1155) for my NH-D14 SE2011. I went onto their website, but the options listed for which HSF I have lacks the option for the NH-D14. How do I go about this? Anyone know?

I would send an email and ask what they can do.

Yea, I did that an hour ago. tongue.gif Haha, I hope they can give me it or else I'm stuck with a really large paperweight!

I'm a complete noob when it comes to fans so how can I assure that my fans are running at 100% top speed? Like, do I get a converter so I can connect it directly to the PSU? What do I do?

An ssd is kind of like a novelty for me since my computer currently does everything I want it to and like a lot of people, its one of the last things I'm able to put money towards. I also find it crazy that a year or two ago I was running 5 or 6 fans, half of them running at 12v and now I've replace everything with bigger heatsinks/passive cooling and will only have 3 fans running. I swear silence is like crack for me biggrin.gif
If silence is like crack for you, you'll realize how refreshing switching to SSDs will be. Definitely worth the upgrade. I have friend that are very cynical and stingy, but once they switched over they can't imagine going back. It won't take 10 secs to load up a simple game anymore, more like 1-2 secs at most. You won't get tired of that...

You can check in your BIOS and see how fast they are spinning. How did you connect the fans to your motherboard? Did you use the y-split cable that comes with the cooler?

I haven't set it up yet but I wanted to know how to make sure. I don't like using the motherboard's software because it normally doesn't end up well anyway. I want to know which wire I should connect it to.

You should use the y-split cable and connect both the fans to the headers and plug it into a CPU fan header on your motherboard. They will be running at 100% then since the Noctua fans aren't PWM.

I bought the NH-D14 SE2011 so they have PWM fans. tongue.gif That's why I'm going to ask them for the LGA 1155 mounting kit.

Oh wow I didn't even know that SE had PWM fans.

If you wanted to control how fast they went I can't think of another way besides the BIOS or some other program.

Have they responded yet?
