They have a silver polish feel to them, I just adjusted the levels in photoshop to make everything look more visible. I did try to fit them up front by the ram, but it looks like my ram is too tall. I'll remount the fans for a push-push config. Thanks for the input.

The beauty of the NH-D14's fan mounting system is that the fan doesn't have to be mounted where it was when it originally arrived, you can keep it on the same side and slide it up or down depending on whats needed, in your case, simply raise it until it will install over your ram. Luckily my ram doesn't have tall heatsinks on it so that fans stays where it was....

Got my NH-D14 last week, hooked up 3 fans:

Front: NF-P12
In-between: NF-P14
Rear: NF-P12

Seriously this heat sink is so huge and it doesn't even perform that well. I returned it after 2 days because i couldn't install my memory upgrade. Went with a zalman 9900max and the temperature is significantly better. (about 2-5 degrees better). Zalman looks better and perform better. This thing is a ugly.

You sure you didn't install the cooler wrongly? From every review I've seen, the NH-D14 betters the Zalman 9900 max by a few good degrees.

The cooler looks good, the fans look like poop (personal opinion). Slap a San Ace fan on that bad boy and it looks like a beast.

Agree.

Noctua NH-D14 beats the Zalman in all reviews, definitely must have done somethong wrong on installation

I also don't like a lot the stock fans, but they perform great and are damn silent, so I am keeping them for now.

Might replace them for some Gentle Typhoon 1450RPM (Or 1850rpm) once I get my ssd, new case, and new ram

You're upgrading again?

Santa must be smiling upon you this year.

Chances are you installed the cooler wrong.
