Combining a massive six heatpipe dual radiator design with an exquisite NF-P14/NF-P12 dual fan configuration, the NH-D14 is built for ultimate quiet cooling performance. Topped off with a tube of Noctua’s award-winning NT-H1 thermal compound as well as the new SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system, the NH-D14 is an elite choice for the highest demands in premium quality quiet cooling.
6 heatpipe dual radiator design Providing more surface area, better heat-distribution and superior airflow efficiency than conventional tower style heatsinks, the NH-D14’s six heatpipe dual radiator design was developed to provide ultimate quiet cooling performance in dual fan mode.
Dual NF-P14/NF-P12 fan setup The NH-D14 sports a premium quality dual fan setup consisting of Noctua’s award-winning NF-P12 (120mm) and NF-P14 (140mm) fans, both of which feature Vortex-Control Notches, SCD technology and SSO-Bearings in order to achieve a perfect balance of performance and quietness.
Asymmetrical design for high compatibility An asymmetrical design that gives more clearance towards the RAM slots ensures good compatibility despite of the cooler’s size. The NF-P12 fan can be moved upwards or left off in order to further improve compatibility.
Excellent component cooling Hanging out at the bottom of the fin-stacks, the NF-P14 fan doesn’t only contribute to the NH-D14’s superb CPU cooling capabilities but also provides massive airflow over surrounding motherboard components and heatsinks, thus ensuring excellent component cooling performance.
SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system Noctua’s enthusiast grade SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting provides broad socket compatibility (LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA775, AM2, AM2+ and AM3) and meets the highest demands in safety, contact pressure and ease-of-use.
NT-H1 thermal compound Noctua's much-acclaimed NT-H1 is a well proven pro-grade TIM solution that provides minimum thermal resistance, excellent ease-of-use and outstanding reliability.

As far as air coolers go, Noctua hit it out of the park with the NH-D14. It's quiet and the cooling performance it delivers is great. While it's not cheap, you get what you pay for with Noctua's NH-D14: top of the line air cooling performance.
Noctua's new NH-D14 is a huge cooler, both in physical size and performance. The build quality is excellent and the mounting solutions are very robust and easily installed. Potential users will also have to do their homework to be sure that this monster will fit on their mobo and in their chassi
The Noctua NH-D14 is costlier than the competition, but stick one in your machine and you won't be sorry. It's a quality item, it works extremely well, and it installs easily enough for those with a little experience.

I purchased this thing when I decided to do a case upgrade for my system (i5-760, i55 Sabretooth Mobo, dual XFX ATI Radeon 5850s). In order to make it work, I bought a case that would fit this monstrosity (Corsair Air 540 from a Antec DF-30) as well as purchasing new RAM that would fit (AMD Performance Edition 2133MHz). The results have been great, I replaced the one 120mm that came with the cooler with a second Noctua 140mm that matches the other. It looks awesome, fits with the RAM, and most importantly cools GREAT.
With my Core i5 760 overclocked to 4.2GHz, RAM to 2100MHz, under Intel Burn Test at max, I did not see the temps go over 65C under long durations of stress. At idle, temperatures are the closest to room temperature I have ever seen from any air cooler.
This is no doubt the best CPU cooler I've ever used. It keeps my i5 4670K at around 50-55 degrees Celcius when running Prime95, and around 23-24 degrees Celcius when idle. It runs very quietly at top speed too.
This is the GOLD STANDARD of air cooling, and has been for a few years. In fact, unless you have a THICK, DOUBLE-RAD water cooling solution, this air cooler will likely be superior when it comes to high load - watch Linus' videos if you don't believe me.
With that said, a sufficiently large case will be required for clearance. Sufficient airflow will also help maximize this cooler's potential.
Works perfectly, keeps my CPU at pretty much room temperature when idle. The only thing preventing me from putting 5 stars is the lack of fans with pwm not included. For a premium heatsink, I would have expected it to come with pwm to control fan speed via motherboard so it pretty much runs maximum speed at all times. The fans are interchangeable though. The noise is still relatively low.
If you're thinking about getting anything less than a Kraken X60, then just get this. This thing performs almost exactly the same as a H100, only it's 5-10 decibels quieter. The only problem with it is that you have to make sure your case and ram are compatible in terms of spacing, but other than that it's the king of the castle. The only step up from this is either a Kraken X60, an Swiftech H220, or a full blown water cooling setup.
