Pros: Quiet, Low profile, Quality construction, Included accessories
Conclusion: Overall this cooler did very well. It gives you excellent cooling performance and the option to create more space under or above the cooler by removing a fan for people without a lot of case space. Even with both the fans installed this cooler isn’t quite as tall as some other high-end air coolers.
Pros: Fantastic performance, 3 mode design, Quiet, Easy to install

Summary: Final Thoughts
Noctua does it again! We have another great CPU cooler that performs great, is quiet, and is extremely easy to install. I think that if Noctua actually put out a bad product the whole world including myself would be shocked!
Pros: – Great Performance, – Easy installation, – Clearance for large memory modules and PCIExpress cards, – Fan can be installed on the top or bottom, – Extra fan clips included for a second fan
Conclusion: Here we are at the end of the Noctua NH-C14S review, and we are left with some interesting results. For one, Noctua quality stands tall here. Build quality is top notch, in both sturdiness and consistency.
Conclusion: As a reviewer, I love Noctua products. Every single Noctua product I’ve ever reviewed has been simply perfect. The consistency of well designed, great performing products is something I really take into consideration with my reviews, and the editors choice award is my way of saying thank you for...
- Quite expensive,
- Not the best performing for the price,
- Would have loved a second fan
Excerpt: We're seeing a lot of small chassis lately thanks to the boom in the interest of the Mini-ITX platform recently. One major drawback of having a smaller chassis is the issue with cooling that monster of a CPU that's crammed in there.
Conclusion: Having already reviewed the NH-C14 well over a year ago i knew exactly how good it would turn out to be but switching to another test rig with a brand new CPU is reason enough to test something again especially if you want to see just how good it is compared to the new kid on the block.
Pros: - Build Quality, - Performance, - Low-Profile, - Two 140mm Fans, - Low Noise Levels, - 6 Years Warranty
