I have a arctic cooler freezer 64 pro on this rig and I always lay it down on its side when I put it in my car. 3 years and no problems so hopefully it will be the same with the Noctua plus the d14 prob has a lot stronger mount.

You could getto rig something to take some of the load off the motherboard to help hold up the heatsink if you are really that worried about it.

I just bought a new car this summer, a 1997 Buick Park Avenue, compared to my old car, a 1997 Geo Prizm lol. The Park Avenue has a really smooth ride so it should be a lot stressful on it.

There's no such thing as overkill on Overclock.net.

NH-D14 will do you proud.

Anyway, to the OP, I'd keep the D14. Why change to something with more noise and lower cooling performance. Besides, you can always build a silent/quiet PC by undervolting the fans or running no fans (like I do with my little E2220).

I tried that once and my temps got worse.

I note that with my Megahalems there is a slight sag when the mb is upright. With my D14 there is zero sag when the mb is upright. The top of the mb is held to the mb tray with three screws. The heatsink makes a cpu sandwich between the contact block and the back brace. It's a blessed solid mount - the best out there, IMO.

Nothing happens, i move mine 2 times a week when cleaning apartment.
And once a month few hours in a car. Don't forget that case is in vertical position as it is even too huge to hold it horizontally. And i'm living on 2nd floor. So i would say there's lots of pressure on mobo when i walk down/up and to car.

Proof? If you're not insanely sick to shake it like there's no tomorrow (and still no proof) maybe it'll come off.

Now this is bad statement. Really bad and misleading. Now i hope he does tighten screws till they stop as in manual and won't see/follow your comment.
