This one is similar to the Noctua d14 that i have....noctua has good basics and they take them to the best efficiency for their design, when i was doing research on coolers in this class...i found that all the criteria i set out for them were met by Noctua's coolers.

The Hyper N520 looks to be designed similarily but i have no experience with it.

Similar in performance or looks, similarities stop at the NF-P14 FLX fan.

The Noctua NH-C12P, you will be happy with but it isn't the top performer like the NH-D14 but also it smaller and it's blowdown. This design will keep other stuff cool also.

The quality of the coolers are second to none and comes with a 6 yeah no fuss warranty. Also the TIM "NT-H1" is top class also.

The mounting is easy and it's solid as a rock.

Noctua NH-D14 and C12P-SE14
