.

the D14 is NOT super quiet, you just have bad ears when i have the d14 @100% it's the only thing i can hear in my case.
The TY-140 isnt silent either @100% but it's a bit more quite than the p14 flx...

Super Mega. Fits in my 300 case perfectly with the exception of two of the fan clips. Jury rigging with some zip ties fixes that issue though. I don't go above 60 C on full load with 1.32 vcore.

There isn't a 120 or 140mm fan on the surface of the earth that is silent above 800rpms lol.

buy silver arrow or D14 and dont change fans, they are both good and silent and made for these coolers...

yes with 2000RPM fans you will get better temps but much more noise as well

NH-D14 is like the Silver Arrow without the good TY-140 fans and without the ability to use 38mm thick fans so this is why I would rule out the D14, even though it is a very good cooler
Performance: true, according to the reviews. 38mm fans: D14 can handle them in push and pull, with either nothing in the middle or a shroud in the middle. I have data, but it's not good enough to publish.

My D14 did fit fine over Mushkin Redlines. Right now it's sitting over four ranks of Ripjaws:

Megahalems fan clips work great with the D14 (see my sig).

The NH-D14 won't interfere with tall ram sinks. The fins start quite high off the board and the front fan, if you need it, can be raised even higher.

The Arrow can, but only if you use a fan on the front.
How the D14 works:



The only issue you might have with the SA and the D14 in an FT02 is the orientation. Benchmark Reviews believe that orientation can make a difference because if you set up your heatsink with the heatpipes vertical, one arm is low so the working fluid pools in the lower arm, so heat transfer is impaired. They recommend that heatpipes be oriented horizontally. They claim, for example, that a Megahalems oriented with heatpipes horizontal (air blowing up) got 3c better cooling than when it was blowing air sideways.

If you believe BR, then the Archon would be your choice . . . except it is so tall that your case seemingly can't accommodate it. Personally, I'd go with one of the two-layer coolers.

The D14 has the best mounting system now being sold. Prolimatech is next. Thermalright might be third. Since you can use Megahalems clips to add any fan and it is more flexible with RAM, the D14 is probably a better choice than the SA, especially with future improvements in mind.

Don't the tensioning screws push those 140mm fans too high? I have a shot of a Kaze Maru peeking over the edge of my case because the tensioning screw is too tall.

Own both Noctua Nh-d14 and Silver Arrow.......and I still do run both.

Performance wise they are virtually identical. Silver Arrow 1-2 degree better with the overclocks.

Noise wise the Silver Arrow is significantly quieter. The Nh-d14 is quiet, but far from silent. You can definitely hear it if you have a mesh case or any type of intake from the side. I plugged in the Noctua and Silver fan on the bench. The TY-140 fans are just quieter.

Both come with very good thermal grease, equal or better than AS-5. No need to use Shin Etsu unless you have some lying around.

Both come with two tone fans that are far from beautiful; they are usually considered "okay" or "butt ugly".

Installation is easier on the Noctua by a hair, the fan clips allow you to raise the fan to clear tall memory sticks.(if your case is wide enough)

Flip a coin, you'll be happy with either.
