5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: It does what you want it to do, really well.

Cons: It's massive in size. If you're going for a "look" or have a side window because you want to be vain with your PC, be mindful that this might dwarf anything on the motherboard. That being said, it isn't ugly itself, just more function over form.

Other Thoughts: It's a really good cpu cooler, even if it isn't as "slick" as I would want.

5 out of 5 eggsWow!

Pros: I had a stock AMD heat sink / fan on my FX-8350 (8-core) and it sounded like a jet was about to take off. It would wind up to 6500 RPM and the temps would still rise and rise. I had to watch what I did as not to overhear the PC. I put a NH-D14 in, and that's when everything changed. First, silence.. it really is golden. Second, It doesn't matter if I watch videos, open a browser and view a Flash video (where the temps would go through the roof), use BitTorrent with a hundred files downloading at once.. and copy a terabyte of data ... All at the same time. Now doing all that, the temps never hit 40c now. I would have red-lined if I had just used BitTorrent while watching a video in VLC before. This is a HUGE difference over the stock cooler. This thing could beat the old one without using fans!

Cons: Big, but if it fits, who cares!

Other Thoughts: With the AMD and Intel hardware, this cooler will outlast your current PC and move over to your next. If it handles the heat from a FX-8350 (125W), it will handle anything.

5 out of 5 eggsA beast !!!

Pros: This is an absolute BEAST of a fan... crazy big in size.... super quiet. Even under a heavy load, this is very, very quiet. I have it perched on top of a i5-6600K on a Gigabyte G1 -Z170 gaming 6 board in a Factal Design D-5 case... It fit perfect in my case, plenty of clearance for the 16 gigs of Vengeance RAM.

Cons: Great fan... but you need room for this beast.

5 out of 5 eggs**5 Year update** still great

Pros: Top of the line cooler brought down my temps about 5c from the Coolermaster V8
**Still compares to some of the Corsair watercoolers

Cons: Didn't wait a week to get the deal going on now....

Other Thoughts: Grab it while you can its way worth it. But make sure it will fit in your case, do you research first.

4 out of 5 eggsVery big, probably overkill for most rigs.

Pros: High quality, since you get what you pay for.
Runs quietly most of the time, even without the low RPM dongle.
It isn't a Cooler Master.
AM3 compatibility.

Cons: Very big. Even with a full ATX case and chassis, installing this was fairly tricky. A fair portion of it I ended up doing by feel. Now that it's installed, it's a non-issue.

Other Thoughts: Definitely less cheap than the Cooler Master heatsink I tried before this.
When I ran into a compatibility issue with the CM heatsink, two friends recommended Noctua. It worked flawlessly, so Noctua will probably be my go-to in the future. Good stuff.

5 out of 5 eggsOverkill but worth the cost.

Pros: The CPU cooler definitely works. It comes with the mounting hardware for both Intel and AMD boards. It also includes clear instructions, thermal paste, and instructions to verify motherboard compatibility. It does keep my CPU much cooler than the stock CPU cooler.

Cons: Cost, obviously, but if that is your only complaint, then you are doing good.
Size. The CPU cooler is HUGE. This is not for small case setups. Mine is a mid-sized case and still almost does not fit the cooler. The fans are slightly adjustable, but it is one huge chunk of metal.

Other Thoughts: If you are not overclocking, this CPU cooler is definitely overkill. If you have space and must absolutely keep your CPU cool, this will work great. My average idle temps when from 45-60 down to 25-30. (Yeah I know the stock cooler was not cutting it {random reboots etc} that and my case fan seized up.) The case fan right behind the CPU was really not needed in my setup any more due to the effectiveness of this cooler.

If you have the space and the money, this will work great.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: This really does it's job I have not had any problem with overheating since installing it,
It also runs very quiet

Cons: It is Huge!
You need to have a large case for this. I had to modify a fan holder on my case just to fit it and I need to remove it if I need to get to my Ram.

Other Thoughts: Absolutely hands down I would recommend this to anyone with the room for it.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this thing. 3 years, zero problems.

Pros: My i7-4770k has never exceeded 60C. Extremely pleased with the performance and durability.

Cons: It is a towering giant of a CPU cooler, and it has significant weight. But as long at you make sure it will fit (**and your RAM**), who cares. The dB and temp numbers speak for themselves.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend to a friend and would certainly purchase this again. Superb design

5 out of 5 eggsBlissfully cool. Comes with all the needed accessories (screw-driver and thermal paste)

Pros: Keeps my CPU (AMD FX-8320) under 42°F during high load, with an average temp of 35°F, on stock settings
Is quiet, even without using the low-noise adapter
Has all the accessories needed for installation
The spring-loaded screws let you know when it's fastened properly (turns easily, then has a hard stop. There's little danger of over-tightening)
Fans are easily attached and removed

Cons: The installation instructions are pretty basic. It's easy to get confused if you don't read them carefully and understand that there are 2 sets of attachments (1 for AMD, 1 for Intel). Either way, the installation has some challenges:

If MOBO is fastened to the case BEFORE installing this product, then:
1. it takes some dexterity to screw the spring-loaded screws it into the plate; and,
2. it's very challenging to re-attach the fans after fastening the heat-sink (may depend on your case)

If MOBO is fastened to the case AFTER installing this product, then:
1. it's hard to fit the MOBO into the case; and,
2. even harder to access all the holes fasten the MOBO to the case properly

Other Thoughts: Ensure your case is big enough! Depending on your case, installation can be tricky. It was a tight fit in my ATX mid-tower gaming case (Corsair SPEC-01), ended up bending some of the metal sheets during the install, and it presses against the case wall opposite the motherboard. I don't think it would have been a problem on a SPEC-03.

Also, be aware of the direction the air will flow through. Like other fans, the open side of the fan suck the air in. (Stupid thing to add, maybe, but it wasn't immediately obvious to me during my first build).

Giving 5-stars despite the listed cons because I've faced similar challenges with every large after-market heatsink I've had to install.

2 out of 5 eggsBe careful when ordering

Pros: It is well built but it's massive and will take up your entire case. Why bother when water cooling is so much better and doesn't put the strain this monster will put on your board. There's more chance this will stress your board then there is that a water cooler will leak which is virtually impossible in these sealed systems now.

Cons: The NH-D14 will not work on the Asus Rampage Extreme 2011 V2 socket. Instead you need the NH-D15. And it gives you no warning. So I accidentally ordered the 14 and returned it. By then I realized forget air cooling and I bought a swiftec water cooler off of ama zon. I couldn't be happier. It's time to migrate to watercooling. All you air hold outs need to get on board. The water cooling is now idiot proof, totally sealed, even a child can install it. You do need to make sure you have a case (or can mod a case) to hold the big radiator (usually at the top of the case)
