[Official] Noctua NH-D14 Club - Page 36

post #351 of 3947
Hi, I'm new here found you guys while I was searching for information about the Noctua 14.
I've already bumped another thread, but since I saw this active topic I think I can better ask my question here

I've ordered a new system, the Noctua was the first which was delivered (I just ordered this at one shop and all the rest at another one). After I've unpacked this beast I was a bit worried due to the irl size. It is really HUGE.
So my question is, does this fit in an Antec P183 case without unmounting the topfan. It will be a i7 system with a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R board and Corsair XMS memory.

The board and memory are at the compatiblelist from Noctua, but can't find nay information about the P183. Can anyone confirm this will fit without unmounting the topfan?

Here it looks like there's plenty space at the top, but Kaishi is using another GB board, I don't know how much both board differs in layout.

Your board has the same layout as mine. The only difference is the southbridge cooling system, and the addition of a few I/O devices on the back panel. Otherwise, it is the same. My NH-D14 fits in the P183 perfectly without removing any fans, and I'm sure yours will too.

I have another photo up, where the machine is running, and it should be even more clear:


Cheers mate.

Hello! My DH-14 will be arriving today, along with a Phenom2 955, Gigabyte's new 890gx motherboard, Dominator ddr3-1600 ram (yes i'll be removing the heatsink extender on these), and AS5.

I do have questions:

1) Should I use the included DH-14 heatsink compound or the AS-5 ?

2) Anyone running this motherboard?

3) Anyone tried different, higher output fans on the DH-14? Specifically, I'm looking at this article:
http://http://www.bit-tech.net/hardw...est-case-fan/3
who's tests show the Noctua NF-P12 is a relatively poor performer, with only 36cfm. A related article
http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/coo...est-case-fan/5
suggests the Scythe Gentle Typhoon D1225C12B4AP-14 with 61cfm.

In addition, a newegg review of the Gentle Typhoon suggested a very similar fan, the Servo Gentle Typhoon
http://www.aerocooler.com/shop.cart?..._id=FAND12B515

So, I guess I'm asking if higher cfm fans would produce any significant temp drops on the DH-14, and asking for some quantitative A vs B results

Hey guys,

I am close to buying a Noctua NH-D14, after reading such a good stuff about it.
Tho i am wondering about something..

I use a i5 750 on a Asus P7P55D mobo, after looking at my mobo i noticed that the space between my heatsink and my PCI-Express slot is pretty tight allready with a cheap Coolermaster Heatsink. I am using a HD5850 videocard.

Is there anyone with a Asus P7P55D, be it LE, EVO, Deluxe or whatever that actually has a Noctua NH-D14 mounted? if so, how tight is it between the HS and the PCI-E slot/Videocard? Some pic(s) would be very nice.

Regards

Looking at Noctua's website for compatibility it looks like it may be a tight fit. Seeing this I hope someone has a very similar layout for you to compare-if it's up in the air for you-you can always contact Noctua

Thanks, allthough i have noticed that compatibility list as well.. It should fit, but it will be very very tight, thats why i would have liked to see people that experienced it them self.

Perhaps a Megahalems or a Venomous-X would be a nice alternative? how much of a size difference towards PCI-E slots would that be? and which one is considered the best of those 2, opinions are different about this matter.. People tend to lean towards the Venomous-X, but i have seen a couple Benchmarks where Megahalems is the best of the 2, and even beats the Noctua with stockfans.

Wondering what to do, go for the Noctua NH-D14 eventho its really tight to my VGA card or go for either one of the two other Heatsinks, if so.. which one?

I really need to find some time to do some real overclocking and testing. Work is getting in the way.

I'm curious to see how it went with using the Indigo Extreme. It sounds like good stuff but I'm not sure about the cost and the method of application.

I ended up falling asleep after I removed my Venomous X. Installing it now... I've been doing the reflow procedure for over 15 minutes now and temps have not dropped

I'm looking on youtube and another guy with a D14 says you have to put a heat lamp on the heatsink to get reflow.

^ wow that totally worked. I don't have a heat lamp but do have a hot halogen work light. I propped it up pointing right at the D14 and boom! Reflow baby

I'll post a pic of the light on the D14 and some temps later
