Just built a new comp using the NH-D14.

BTW, I am normally not into case badges but the metal Noctua one earned a spot on the front of my HAF.

Ok I do not recall seeing any questions specific to this. Is there a performance gain in lapping the D14?

Does anyone know the benefits from adding two Gentle Typhoon AP-15s to the NH-D14?

Also would GT AP-15s be too loud on full tilt?

I want something that's around the quietness of the stock fans. Maybe AP-14s at full speed?

Would I lose any performance since the 140mm Noctua has higher CFM?

From my previous testing - which was plagued with unreliability - I got a temp drop of 2-4c with an increase in noise of about 2dB. Basically, it's worth doing. OTOH, the airflow in my case was so good I dropped down to AP-14's.

Based on my current fan runs (in progress) my biggest recommendation is that if you are going to buy two fans and you want quiet, get a TY-140 and an AP-14. I haven't tested with the AP-15 yet, but going with the TY-140 improves everything.

Is 2dB something that is easily noticeable? And would that fan combo that you suggested be louder than a CoolerMaster R4 that is currently in my case? It was a bad decision on my part to get the R4, but now that I have it I might as well use it.

I mean I'll take the AP-15s as long as they aren't excessively loud, like say my R4. But the thing with buying AP-15s is that if there are too loud for my tastes I'd have to take the hit and buy 14s. Lol.

So based on what you're saying P/P AP-15s netted 2-4C off load temps, but do you think that a TY-140/ AP-14 would match that performance? Or better it?

I'm looking to get as cool as possible with this monster, my load temps are nothing to be afraid of (65*C @ 4ghz) but I'd like to drop those temps a tad more and pump up the OC.

Thanks for the help.
