I have been trying to see if you pros are modding these noctuas with aftermarket fans. There is not too much out there, but I would love to see if the best can be made better with an additional fan or different fans. I got to admit the V8 sure looked bad ass in a HAf case, if CM would make a big noctua like cooler that looked as good as the v8, but performed like the d14 we'd be all set.

My noob setup: i7 930, haf 932, gigabye x58-ud3r, ocz 6gb DDR3-1600, toughpower 750w, dual sparkle sli gtx 460 1gbs OC.
Unlike coolers like the Megahalems, the D14 will actually benefit from two 38mm fans. Put two San Ace 9G1212H1011'S or two Ultra kaze 3000's or two Panaflo's on there (put nothing in the middle) and you will get superior cooling. You'll at least double your noise, though.

Well noise is a consideration as this pc will be in the master bedroom. Even the HAF 932 blue leds are too bright for my wife and I had to mod them (duct tape). So far the V8 super quiet even under full load with the fan running full out. If the stock fans are as quiet as I have read and will get me to the magic number 4, Ill be happy.

Thanks for mentioning the noise.

Do notice that I'm running a D14 on my i7 860 at 4GHz. The 860 is a hotter-running chip than any 9xx.

My rig is a half meter from my head, and all i hear is quiet air.

Get 25mm Megahalems clips for that third fan, or 38mm clips for a 38mm fan. Do write to Noctua and they'll send you clips, pegs and pads, but all you really need is the rear pads.

My temps on full load with an ambient in the mid-20's are running 77-78c, which is about where I want them. I feel I'm lucky to get that, since my cpu seems to sag in the middle, which prevents full-force pressure. i expect everyone to get 2-3c better than my temps.

Yeah I messaged Noctua but since it's a weekend I'll have to wait till Monday for a reply.

Good to hear about your temps, I was shooting for 4GHz on my i7-875k with temps ranging near 70-75C.

I think it happens the first time I installed it probably because of user error? No clue how that happened because all I did was screw in the spring screw until it stops lol. Since there are two screws, do you try to make sure that you screw both of them in increment instead of fully tightening one in and then start on the other? That was what I did the first time... maybe that was why O.o

First of all, Firehawk2010, OUTSTANDING case you have there. It looks so good it made me want to start one myself.
Would you mind sharing a bit of knowledge on Spray Painting? I have no idea whatsoever on anything about it, and it made me really curious to be able to change 'ugly' colors into something more 'eye candy'.

I would like a bit of advice from everyone: I am starting my first "real" computer and what I have so far:
M4A785TD-M
2 GB DDR3 Kingston
Phenom II x4 955

Buying:
HAF-922
HD 5870 1GB
Noctua D-14

How would memory managing be with my motherboard, seeing as it's kinda small? Would I need "mini DDR3"? Also, it being small, won't the cooler bend the MoBo?

And also, it says the Noctua-D14 does NOT come with a backplate for AM3 MoBo's, how the hell would I install it?

I'm new to this world and any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

The memory is okay so long as your don't get something like Corsair Dominators with the high heatsink spreaders.

You can always move the 120MM fan up to accommodate for taller memory modules.

The cooler shouldn't bend the board because if you screw the motherboard correctly and securely in it won't bend.

What I don't know is about the backplate, I know people who have 1055T's and 1090T's and they can use the NH-D14. You might have to e-mail Noctua and have them send you out one.

I don't think it's user error. I think it is because the cpu is designed to keep the ihs above it at about the same level as the corners. Half a mm off and you get the corner problem.
