The clips you see are Megahalems clips. They work fine as a substitute for Noctua clips with the left fan, which is a 120mm fan. A standard 140mm fan is in the middle position. You can see that it is too big for the clip.

Here is the kind of 140mm fan the D14 normally accommodates:



Of course, the Megahalems clip won't work, but you can see how Noctua clips would work.

wow thanks.
so basically if i want to use the clips and change the fans im going to have to have either 2 x 120mm fans or either 1 x 120mm fan + 140mm fan with 120mm mounting holes?

That is exactly what I intend to do: I'll be testing Kaze Maru and Kaze Maru-2 fans on the D14. They are 140mm fans with 120mm standard hole placement.

OTOH, zipties and/or mini-bungee cords may allow a standard 140mm fan to fit just fine. I have a high speed 140mm Yate Loon that I'm going to test, and it has 140mm standard hole placement.

My motto is: get the data. If theory and data conflict, and the data is not spurious, then the theory has to go.

Here are some shots of my system. The Noctua is doing a great job with the temps. I've got stepping on. 2.4Ghz at idle the temps are in the mid to high 30's. 3.6Ghz at full load the temps never go past the mid 50's. Here's a list of all the motherboards supported...

Do the 2 fans on the cooler run at full speed on the stock setting? I got both connected via the Y splitter to the cpu fan terminal on the motherboard and I can't seem to adjust the fan speeds in Speedfan?
post #410 of 3949
Can anyone here tell me how the NH-D14 compares in sound to the stock i7 920 (or 930) cooler?

This might be heresy but I don't intend to overclock my i7-930. My goal is to build a quiet computer. I've bought the Antec P183 and would be willing to buy the NH-D14 and use the "ultra low noise" adapters with it if it is quieter then the stock cooler. Again, since I don't intend to oc I don't need to run it at full speed. I just need to make sure if cools the CPU as well as the stock would have yet produce less noise.

Thanks.
