There are situations where the D14 will work but U14S won't fit, for example on an mATX board with the graphics card in the closest slot to the CPU socket and on an ITX board with graphics card. It also works alright without front fan (I'm using it like that).

NH-U14S = 165x150x52 mm costs abut $65-70.00 with poo brown fan and can't cool as good as NH-D14 SE2011
TS140P = 171x155x53.4mm costs about $55.00 with pretty black and white fan and performs as good as NH-D14 SE2011


No! It's 0.3c warmer. frown.gif

But it's 2.5dBA quieter! biggrin.gif

But back to the NH-D15. Sure would be nice to see more reviews. rolleyes.gif

The discussion started with the U14S vs D14 so out of those two, I'd take the U14S for the reasons I stated above. I know there are better coolers out there than the D14/U14S that are far cheaper but I was specifically comparing the U14S against the D14.

Okay. I was specifically comparing them both against the TRUE Spirit 140 Power. tongue.gif

But seriously, the NH-U14S is a very nice cooler. thumb.gif

Anyone know when we can buy one? Looks like NCIX has it posted but says shipping in 1-2 weeks which we already know. Who will be the first to carry?

Modders, inc. had a nice review yesterday. I came away with the impression that money spent upgrading from my DH14 and Phanteks TC14 could be better spent elsewhere. I'm NOT knocking the new DH15. Upgrading from just about any other air cooler would be worthwhile. I'm a big Noctua fan (no pun intended) and the only reason I'm using Phanteks is because I decided to go with a color scheme, blue in my case, just to try my hand at sleeving cables. BTW, never again; I'll buy them ready sleeved next time. But the single color idea is a good one as evidenced by so many creative enthusiasts.

I do, however, want to buy one of these coolers anyway.

I'm waiting for Amazon to start selling it because I have a $200 gift card on it. biggrin.gif

You won't have to wait long... they're physically within the Amazon warehouses right now, and should be listed this week (via Fulfillment by Amazon).
