A lot of people have tried to made me feel bad for using all those Noctua fans, and wasting money on them. Had I read the 65 fan review by Ehume first, I would've chosen differently obv, but do I regret my decision in retrospect? NOPE! The fans are great, and they're relatively quiet.

You got pics of your rig?

I personally like the Noctua fans you put in the case. Granted they may have been a little on the pricey side, but regardless it's a different look.

In my preliminary testing with the D14 (which I am duplicating now) I found that a standard center fan helps cooling only up to a certain point. After that, it only gets in the way.

You might try, for example, putting your Blade Masters in push and center positions. You can adapt a fan to Noctua pegs by getting an 8mm or a 9/32-inch drill. Then, holding it in your hand, enlarge each screw hole partway through. Check and re-check you drill depth. The peg should make a pop sound as you push it into position. This will allow you to put a standard 120mm fan into the center position of a D14. You will get better cooling than you will with stock fans.

Also: what's your ambient, and what cpu core temps are you getting now?
My ambient temp is 19C-20C for all the tests and these are my cpu temps with noctua stock fans before the noctua TIM and with the Noctua TIM

Have you tried 21 x 191 for your OC?

Yes but even then my temps were better with V6GT. I put the fans of V6GT on Noctua at start and end of it and i left the original 140mm at the middle. I get better temps but not best from the V6GT.

I bought Noctua for better temps and the ability of a higher overclocking but as i see until now ,no matter what fan i use or what ever i do the V6GT always has better temps. I spend 76 euros for Noctua and 30 euros for a pair of 3000 rpm fans with 133 CFM and alot of noise(which i could also use to V6GT for brtter performance) and these are the best i get from it. All i thinnk after all these hours of trying and spending is that maybe V6GT it's a lower price better cooler than Noctua.

Looks like you got a bum cooler. You might take this up with Noctua tech support. Let's see . . . ah!

Noctua - Support <support@noctua.at>

These guys are amazing. And they're in Austria. (BTW - you might want to put your location where we can see it. Greece, eh? Cool.)

And if these are the results you get with IBT, that's not so good. With OCCT/Linpack you can test even hotter.
