And my point was that's not really 'an issue' since in that case you can still use the old D14 or countless other quality coolers, but yeah... wink.gif

i guess it's just semantics. I just Don't see it as 'an issue' per se since with high end air cooling (just as with water) you usually need to carefully assemble the components and cant just throw random parts together.

So for a high end air cooling you need a case with enough clearance, RAM without huge heatspreaders and a motherboard with the adequate layout for your setup.

I see what you're saying....but even with a D14, it's still an issue....the fan clips are blocking the first PCI-E slot, and you have to isolate it with some electrical tape....and even once you do, it still slightly pushes down on your 1st PCI-E expansion card, due to the sheer size of the D14.

Most folks who buy a D14, or Silver Arrow, or whatever other huge cooler....they prepare ahead of time and do their research.

How much better will cool this new version. ? I dont see any major differences, so i dont think it will be much better !!
post #3484 of 3947
I think it will be better for sure, but how much? I don't know.. It will have 2x 140mm fans over the 120mm and 140mm. And it will have also more space between heatpipes for beter air distribution. But It's too soon to talk about it... We have to wait until release and for reviews, than we will know for sure.. smile.gif

But I will definitely wait for that. smile.gif

Well just the little bit.. smile.gif

Noctua NH-D14: 160mm (H) x 140mm (W) x 130mm (D) - with fan in front 160mm (H) x 140mm (W) x 158mm (D)

NH-D14 update: 165mm (H) x 150mm (W) x 135mm (D) - with fan in front 165mm (H) x 150mm (W) x 160mm (D)


So, in general is not too bigger than NH-D14, but little warning. with fan in the front, it will be more higher, because it will be right above RAM Moduls. My moduls have 36mm in slots, so plus 140mm of the fan high and have final minimum 176mm of high with standard RAM moduls. wink.gif

Sorry. it was sent twice...
post #3488 of 3947
i was looking at the height more then anything. an extra 5mm means it wont fit my case anymore. I will have to go with the old one tongue.gif.

I was lucky to get NH-D14 SE2011 with 1156 mounting for my i7!

I had a little truggle assembling the cooler to motherboard.

I pushed it to the CPU but then one side went up when paste was applied but I pressed it back and had the same thing on the other side but I found the sweet spot and I screwed it.

I just got a question - am I okay with the above?

Paste was applied, cooler was lifted a little bit then pressed again. I got 35-36 idle temps and like 72 in IBT at my current overclock. Thats like 9 degrees lower compared to Zalman Performa.


Should I redo the paste or am I okay ?
