[Official] Noctua NH-D14 Club - Page 370

Added a new fan to my Noctua setup

post #3692 of 3950

 

Bringing out the ole D14 for a X58 build I'm throwing together.  Just got the X58A UD3R board in today, and will be throwing spare parts into it.  I'll post back with the D14 mounted securely and in a case.

 

[edit]

And installed:

 

 

So far keeping my Xeon cool under 65C @ 4.0ghz with 1.28V, still testing stability.

hey guys, new to this forum and new to nh d14 as well.

I have 2 questions which I cannot find any answer on the web. please enlighten me!

1, must I use the y splitter to connect both fans? I have a motherboard which has 2 cpu fan connectors (1x4pin, 1x3pin), can i plug the 2 fan header from NH d14 to the 2 cpu fan connectors on the motherboard separately?

2. what exactly is push/pull, push, pull configuration and how to set them up? and which type is recommended? I have air carbide 540 from corsair as casing.

Thanks in advance!

1. You can use the splitter or not. The splitter has an RPM line on only one arm, so that only one RPM signal is sent to the mb, and the mb will not be confused. You can also plug the fans in separately if you have 2 cpu fan headers. Either way works.

 

2. Push-pull is when you have fans on the front and the back of a heatsink -- literally pushing and pulling the air through the heatsink. The NH-D14 normally has two push fans -- the NF-P12 on the front of the front finstack, and an NF-P14 on the front of the back tower.

 

You can send off to Noctua to get a third set of clips so you could have a pull fan on the NH-D14. It doesn't help much unless you are running the front two fans very slowly. You can also mount the P14 on the back of the front tower. I suspect that that will not work as well as the stock setting. I haven't tested that but I imagine Noctua has.

1) Each fan has it's own connector so you can plug them anywhere you want. The Y splitter is used if you only have 1 CPU header on your motherboard so that it can control rpm on both fans (some motherboards cannot control 3-pin fans at all however).

2) Push/pull as the name suggests is a fan setup of pushing and pulling air through the heatsink.
For instance the first fan is pushing air through the heatsink, the last fan is pulling air through the heatsink. The NH-D14 already use a semi push/pull config as the middle fan acts as push and pull at the same time. You could add a 3rd fan as pull for a slight decrease in temps, like 1-2c tops.

Since no local shop carries D14 anymore (only U14,C14,U12), I'm thinking of buying second hand unit.
I want to replace the original fan.
Is it possible to use 140mm fan with normal (140mm) mounting ?
All noctua mounting = 120mm right ? Does the clip work with 140mm mounting ?

No 140mm square frame fans need apply.

You know from that angle, if the LED were red, it would look like a space heater.
