Pros - Super quiet - Easy installation - High Quality
Cons - Fairly large, took me by surprise once I unpackaged it.
Summary I bought this cooler to replace an Antec 920 water cooling setup.....I had the Antec system for less than 6 months and the pump was noisy and no longer cooling efficiently. Sometimes it would be at 34 all the way up to 58.....the pump was working on and off. Installed this new heatsink and my temps now go from a low of 11 to an average of 15.8 and the highest has been 25 under full load. All of that and its very quiet, so yes I highly recommend this product.
Summary This heatsink keeps the processor very cool, around 24C at idle for an i5 4690K while being quiet at the same time. I had my mind set on the NH-D14 but it interfered with the RAM I was using. The NH-U14S left enough room for all 4 memory slots. It is quite tall and you should check if it will fit your case.
Summary This cooler is huge but manages to restrict very little in terms of what can be installed in a case. Noctua's compatibility list is pretty useful. The NH-U14S manages to cool very well at almost complete silence. I barely hear it at full load.
