But yes, the SA is a better performer by about 1c and the fans are a bit quieter.

Took me like 5 mins to install. And both have issues with tall heatspreaders. If space really is a problem, then I reckon the H70 is probably the best option

From first-hand experience:

Purchasing an NH-D14 not only gets you good temps. The design quality is absolutely amazing. Lapping will never be necessary, the fins don't feel weak at all and don't bend easily (a problem I've found with other coolers), quiet fans that move tons of air, plus other major advantages. If you're using a full-tower case or a large mid-tower case (such as myself) go for the NH-D14.

Another thing to consider: The fans alone would cost you nearly $40 on the market. These fans don't screw around, much like the cooler they're attached to.

As far as the RAM height: http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=c...s_id=34&lng=en

Apparently Ripjaws will fit under it, along with most RAM. The only issues are with truly ridiculous RAM sinks.

Quite true. People get whichever products fit what they need, for sure. If you've got a lot of room and ram sizes aren't a problem, the SA is the way to go. If you are a little tight on space and your ram heatspreaders are a little taller, go with the nh-d14. If space is a serious issue, then by all means go with the h50 or h70.

By the freakin' way: Asetek LCLC 240. Literally an H50 with a 240mm rad. Just another option to consider. I'm still standing by my NH-D14 with pride though.

What are your load temps?

Everyone's seen that overclock 3D review and for the SA to fail like it did, I'd say (and I'm not the only one) he did something wrong installing it because many other sites got it to run at similar clock speeds (as in the link I posted)

Usually around 38c to 43c when gaming. Don't usually see it over 43c during hours of gaming. On a more extreme note, I don't usually see it over 48c during a long Prime95 run. Note that I live in the mountains of Northern California. Winter can get very cold and Summer is usually just warm.

I live in a similar sounding climate here in OZ. At 100% load temp is @ 45c max. 43.9c average
