Jealous man. I installed mine last night too, on my 2600K, and my load temps are 66-70-73-68 under load 4.4GHz @ 1.32v. Ran Prime95 blend for 12h55m though.

Seems a little high to me. They are virtually the same as my H100 (2 fans). It is way quieter though, which is nice.

@kulbida
What you switched your H100 for a D14?
A H100 with 2 / 4 fans outperforms a D14 by a tiny bit.

my 4.4ghz with arctic frezer , never goes above 65C even after a 12hour blend! reseat your cpu cooler!

my ambiants are 23c

I tried reseating it once. I initially used Arctic Cooling MX-4 but then used the Noctua TIM the second go around. Didn't make a difference at all...

As far as the switching from H100, this thing is equally as good as my H100, but worlds quieter. The sound started annoying me with the H100.

Also, how the hell are you 4.4GHz stable at 1.23v?? That is why you are cooler than I am...

73C is high...really high for that overclock. My 2700k only does 80C after 80+ hours of folding at 1.41v

I went with the D14 instead of H100 simply because I have liquid cooled before and didnt want the hassle nor the 4 fans (and associated rats nest of wiring) noise.
Keeps it simple and no worries about leaks or bubbles in the radiator etc.

Noise really doesnt matter because whenever my 6970 decides its too warm it goes into whirlwind mode lulz.
Only happens at most graphically intense moment of a game for a few seconds then goes away.

I will prime95 for an hour @ stock clock and post temps idle and max, then Ill OC and post same info.

haha no clue how 1.24v is stable but it works! turn off pll and try it out

use the rice grain method to apply the TIM and seat the cooler really tight!

but that's the best part! I love looking into my side panel and seeing an obnoxiously large heatsink. I only have an NH-U12P, not a D14 though.

For the virtual silent nature of the D14 when compared to the h100, the D14 wins in my book. To get the same cooling performance at load as the D14, the h100 tends to become quite loud.

The H100 pump block is more attractive than the D14, that is for sure. The radiator sits atop the case, out of view, so that is nice as well. The block is only big enough to cover the socket area, and is about 2 inches high. Really nice design.

Also, I re-seated the D14, and the temps are about the same, peaking at 70C at load (4.4GHz @ 1.32v). What gives? This is annoying me now.

I'm 4.6Ghz @ 1.30v so I believe 1.24v can manage 4.4Ghz OC. Good chip's we have, sir!

62c 67c 71c 67c my temps @ max load ([email protected]) fluxuates to 64c 70c 70c 68c sometimes too.

your right. different strokes for different folks.

I was getting low 60s with my H100 with my 2500k running 4.8 at 1.41v prime95 for hours. could hyperthreading be the reason for that much more heat?

Have you aligned the fans right??
As in, having them so the centres are aligned. So the dead spots of the fans are aligned

I have them in the exact spots Noctua shipped them in. I counted, and they are clipped in between the 14th and 15th fin on the heatsink.

I actually used the least amount of thermal paste seating this D14 than I ever have on any cooler before.
Probably about 1/2 a grain of rice, to me a pea would be a massive amount of paste.
As for fan positioning, I placed both fans in the 15'th fin slot.
Also I did not lap the cpu or the cooler.

The installation was very straight forward, also seems to be quite secure.

Id give the D14 a 10/10.
Includes everything you need, installs easily, and performs well.
