Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 CPU Cooler review on PureOverclock

"After seeing the performance results, the best way to sum up the Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 is that it is an outstanding cooler, second to none from what we've seen so far in our extensive testing over the years. Perhaps more shocking is the fact that it is rare to have a cooler that not only performs well but is also quiet. It's been our experience that it's extremely difficult to have low noise levels and top cooling performance; the two are inversely proportional, gain one and lose the other to an extent. However, this Noctua cooler is a rare exception, providing exceptional cooling performance at very low noise levels.

Not only is the NH-D14 SE2011 a beast in terms of performance, but also in design and sheer size. This cooler is by far one of the largest we've ever seen or tested. The heatpipes will most likely not interfere with memory modules that have tall heatspreaders so that’s not really a drawback anymore."
