Just a FYI
I always "practice / test" install before I remove the plastic and apply TIM... Even when installing coolers I've used before.. new or used.. To be sure everything lines up and screws start properly. Only takes a minutes and is so much easier than having to clean TIM off. thumb.gif

I did about 75% of that. I lined it up and made sure it was sitting properly, clearing the ram and motherboard, and that the screws lined up but I did not actually try to start them. Good tip and I'll certainly do that from now on. Hopefully I don't have to take this one off any time soon but I'm confident that I can re-attach it easily. I chose the D14 as much for it's easy installation as I did for it's cooling power.

In case anyone is interested, I found two reviews on the NH-D14 cooling a 3770K @ 4.6Ghz. I'm gonna go straight for 4.6Ghz now and then 4.8Ghz if it's doable with this cooler. I'll be using three fans total instead of two so maybe it will help a little.

Sorry about that. doh.gif I posted it for others to read and avoid what happened to you. redface.gif

Even after having done hundreds of cooling intalls is always to a "practice" install when installing a brand new cooler or after installing mount on a different motherboard. It's so easy to make sure screws start and tighten as they should, than remove and install for real.

Amazing how many times I've found rough threads, springs grinding when screws are turned, poor alignment of screws, etc. I us a tiny syringe with very fine oil to lubricate threads and turning faces between springs, washers, etc. It takes almost no oil, but makes a huge difference in amount of force needed turning screws. wink.gif

Oh no need to apologise! I'm always happy to get some good advice. smile.gif

I actually was just out at the hardware store for some electrical tape and I picked up a looong phillips head screwdriver to use next time instead of the one included in the D14 box. Can never have too many screwdrivers. HSF installs have always been my achilles heel (and I've only done a dozen in the last 10 years) so I try to get as much info and advice as I can. thumb.gif

If i turn my NH-D14 to getting air from my video card would it be better or no?
In this way will fall temperatures on video?

my system is:

mobo: z77 extreme4
ram:2x4gb Corsair white
video: r9 280x CrossFire
case: CM 690 II advanced

No, probably worse.

  • Which Noctua do you have?
  • What is your ambient temp?
  • What is cooler intake air temp?
  • At stock settings you Noctua appears to be doing fine.
  • It's called overclocking. 1.35v is rather high. 1.25-1.30v is all I would push at it. Stock "fixed" voltage is about 1.20v and will drop to like 0.90v at idle.
