Default Noctua NH-C14 CPU Cooler Review @ circuitREMIX

Taking a look at computer retailers online, and even our past CPU cooler review history, it's easy to see that the most popular style of heatsink right now follows the tower design. It's no surprise as towers with their heatpipes and large radiators perform well. But performance aside, they have major downsides including high height and low base clearance which interferes with RAM with tall heatspreaders. Both the benefits and downfalls of the tower style of heatsink were evident in our last CPU cooler review of Noctua's NH-D14. In this review, Noctua enters the fray again with their NH-C14 CPU cooler. It was designed by Noctua with high performance and having less clearance issues in mind. Compared to the NH-D14, the NH-C14 is more than 1 inch shorter and provides about 1 inch more clearance between the radiator and the heatsink base.
