How well 140mm fan on nh-d14 cools vrm area ?
If the 140mm fan is flush with top of cooler the bottom part of fan is flowing air over motherboard. I've found keeping the idle speed at about 700rpm improves low load motherboard temps.

I currently have my Noctua NH-D14 cooling my Intel i7 3770K @ 4.5Ghz. I wanted to know if anyone had a similar setup because I feel my temperatures are too high. I have 1.215V on the CPU and is completely stable...

My temps from Prime95 hit 84-86C max... From what I know, shouldn't my temps be at most below 80? Should I try reseating the heatsink? I'm using the included noctua thermal paste as well

I believe this could be correct. I can only try to compare your numbers with my i5-3570k. My CPU does not have hyper-threading and this should mean it runs something like 10°C colder? When I look at old screenshots, the numbers kind of fit with yours if those 10°C are kept in mind.

When you compare with the results from other people, don't forget to keep the room temperatures in mind. If that's different by 5°C for example, the temperature for the CPU changes by pretty much exactly those 5°C.

Make a note of the FFT size that prime95 is currently using and reporting in its window. The temperatures are much higher when it's working on the small sizes. The smallest size is 8K and you could input that manually in the min/max fields of the options window if you are only interested in getting fast results about the highest possible temperature.

This prime95 FFT size stuff means you need to check for that when comparing temperatures you see from other people.

What you see is btw. why "delidding" started to get somewhat popular with Ivy Bridge. tongue.gif

As deepor said room ambient is relevant. Even more important is that air going into your cooler is as close to room ambient as possible. 2-5c warmer is okay, any more means case airflow needs attention. Links in sig explain it in more detail.

Ordered the SE2011 version for my old 3930k build. I've had the 3930 water cooled for the past few years, but I'm looking to start a new build for home and planning to move the 3930 to my office and wanted to switch over to a good air cooler.I didn't realize there was a D15, but still looking forward to seeing how this works out tomorrow.

Anyone have this cooler with a Rosewill blackhawk mid tower case?

Had the D14 SE2011 for a few days and I'm pretty happy with the results. The metal catches on the fans seem to be extremely close to the back of the video card and it makes it quite a bit harder to actually hit the catch to remove the video card, but the cooling seems great. It took a minute to get used to the idle temps being a bit higher as they can seem to roam into the 40's, but when I set the fans to 100% it drops back to low 30's which is close to what I had with water. With prime95 I was getting 65 to 68 at 4.8 on my 3930k with water. Now at stock with the D14 I'm getting about 55-58 under load so I'll have to see how high I can get with air.

Hello, Does anyone have a spare amd set kit I can purchase off of them? I have tried to receive a set from noctua support, and they said it would take 1-2 weeks. From my experience with razer and their definition of 1-2 weeks(more like 3-4 months), I am a bit skeptical about a company's delivery estimate. Plus, I REALLY need to mount his cooler already. suffice it to say, I am now trying to purchase outright as it has been 15 days without the spare part.

Hey guys, new to the club. Well, not officially. Sholin seems to be offline. I recently put together a X79 system. One thing I didn't realize is the size. It cools the i7 really well, but I'd like to put a SLI set up. Right now the cooler blocks the first PCIe slot. Are there any X79 boards out there that it will fit? I've looked at the Asrock X7 Extreme 6 and the Sabertooth X79 and it seems like all the PCIe slots are all up against the CPU socket. Otherwise, I am considering getting the 115x kit and swapping either my 2600's or 4790's Corsair H105 for the Noctra, probably involves a case swap too because the X79 is in a Antec P182. Any advice?

Noctua has a compatibility list on their page for the NH-D14 and there's a lot of boards listed where it will fit:

http://noctua.at/main.php?show=compatibility_gen&products_id=34&lng=en

Even if it fits, it will always be very close with the first slot. Are you sure it doesn't fit on your current board?

You'll also need to think about something to insulate that bit of the fan clips where you grab it, like a piece of electrical tape. That's how scarily close things are.
