Heatsinkfactory appears to still have some, but now that I know the product is discontinued I'd like to know why before I order one. (since if the reason is that Noctua is going belly up, then maybe I shouldn't expect a 7 year warranty)

you are probably searching on the wrong places lol
http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=p...s_id=34&lng=en

Click where to buy and get it... if its not available(at a certain place-store) it means they are awaiting more stock(these things are made in Australia, so they have to wait for them to ship the stock)

First of all, whoever posted the Amazon.com link didn't read the page. It says that Amazon is out of stock. "Usually ships within 1 to 2 months"

Second, FuturePowerPC told me that the item was discontinued. Maybe that just means that FuturePowerPC has discontinued the item.

Third, Earlier in this very thread someone said that the cooler was discontinued and that remaining stock was dwindling fast.

Ok, I went ahead and bought one. $90 shipped from Heatsink factory. Hopefully these guys have it in stock like their webpage indicates.

I considered the corsair H70. $10 more and you get a water cooler, right?

But here's how it broke down :

cooling performance : the H70 is still slightly inferior to the Noctua in one review, and slightly ahead in another in a review where they admit they didn't mount the Noctua the right direction. I'm going to assume that cooling performance is roughly equal for the sake of argument.

Reliability : 6 year warranty with the noctua, and the heat conduction is passive. If a fan fails you have 2-3 spare ones and can always cannibalize a case fan until you get a replacement. Also, the Noctua appears to have more cooling fin area than the H70 with wider gaps which means that dust buildup is going to degrade performance less.

Corsair H70 : a 2 year warranty and the critical moving part, the pump, is mounted inside the waterblock being toasted by the overclocked CPU. Eventual failure should be expected, and when that happens you have to replace the entire $100 cooler.

Chances for catastrophic failure : The noctua is so darn heavy it can break the wiring from the RAM to your CPU. X58 mobos are infamous for having RAM problems. But it won't break anything but your mobo, and you can probably RMA the mobo for another one.

Corsair H70 : if the pump fails the machine might not shut down before the CPU is fried. If the coolant leaks out it can fry every single component in your computer.

Both these failures are rare, but again a slight lead to the Noctua.

So for price, reliability, and risks I think the Noctua is the right choice.

Well, Habeed, all I can say is that the D14 has a superb mount that appears to spread the load beautifully. I am in no fear for my motherboard. I think you will be pleased with your purchase.

Would the Noctua NH-D14 work with Asus Rampage III Extreme with Corsair DDR3 TR3X6G1600C8D Dominator 6 GB PC3-12800 1600MHz OR Patriot Viper II Sector 7 Edition DDR3 12 GB PC3-12800 1600MHz. On the pictures above the Dominator seems to be too long? Anyone tried Patriot Viper II ? Here says it works with Patriot Viper II, anyone tried? http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=c...s_id=34&lng=en

Also, about the Dominator it says it works of heat sinks are removed.

Warn: dont order it from tiger direct. their advertise is deceptive, they will put you on backordered after order it. I had experienced with it yesterday. I called them and cancelled it.


Today, I ordered it from heatsink factory, they have it in stock. ( I suppose to get D14 by this week)..

In stock-

heatsink factory
NCIX
eBay


Out of stock-
Neweggs
SVC
Sidewinder
others.

When I first wrote to Noctua about a third set of clips, the service rep asked me to write back in 4 weeks because they were out of stock.

I doubt this best-selling heatsink will be discontinued. instead, the factory that makes it may be making the NH-D12 at present. It is also possible that Noctua may be clearing out inventory for a Rev B. model - the NH-P14B, similar to the NF-S12B.
