Built for high-end computing and
The NH-U14S is the 14cm top model of Noctua¡¯s
classic U-series single tower CPU coolers, which have received more than 400
awards and recommendations from the international press. While the large, six
heatpipe design and the
NF-A15 140mm fan
with PWM support for fully automatic speed control allow the cooler to best the
renowned quiet cooling performance of all other U-series coolers, its 52mm slim
shape still guarantees full compatibility with tall RAM modules on LGA2011.
Topped off with the trusted, pro-grade SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system,
NT-H1 thermal compound
and full 6 years manufacturer¡¯s warranty, the NH-U14S is a complete premium
quality solution that combines superb performance, high compatibility and quiet
Award-winning NH-U series
The NH-U14S is the first 140mm model in Noctua¡¯s award-winning NH-U series.
First introduced in 2005, the NH-U series has become a standard choice for
premium quality quiet CPU coolers and won more than 400 awards and
recommendations from leading international hardware websites and magazines.
Full RAM compatibility on LGA2011
With its 52mm slim design tailor-made for LGA2011, the NH-U14S will not overhang
the RAM slots on this platform, thus guaranteeing full compatibility with tall
memory modules. On some LGA115x and AMD motherboards, the front fan may overhang
the first RAM slot, so standard height RAM (up to 32mm) should be chosen when
using the first slot.
Reasonable size for better overall
Standing 165mm tall, the NH-U14S is short enough to fit most modern high-end
cases. Measuring 150mm wide (including fan and fan clips), the NH-U14S provides
better compatibility with SLI and CrossFire setups as compared to tower coolers
that are wider than 150mm or use fans wider than 150mm.
NF-A15 140mm PWM Fan
The NF-A15 is a premium quality quiet 140mm fan with a round frame that complies
with Noctua¡¯s AAO standard. Featuring sophisticated aerodynamic design measures
such as Flow Acceleration Channels, the NF-A15 further improves the renowned
quiet cooling performance of the award-winning NF-P14
PWM support and Low-Noise Adaptor
The NF-A15 140mm fan supplied with the NH-U14S supports PWM for convenient
automatic speed control through the mainboard. In addition, the maximum fan
speed can be reduced from 1500 to 1200rpm using the supplied Low-Noise Adaptor
for even quieter operation.
Anti-vibration pads and fan-clips for second
For users who want to achieve even better performance by adding a second,
optional NF-A15 fan to create a push/pull setup, the NH-U14S includes fan clips
and an extra set of custom-designed anti-vibration pads that allow to off-set
the rear fan by 5mm to improve acoustics in dual-fan mode.*
SecuFirm2™ mounting system
Noctua¡¯s SecuFirm2™ mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety
and ease of use. Supporting Intel LGA115x (LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156), LGA2011
and AMD (AM3+, AM2+, FM1, FM2), the SecuFirm2™ mounting included with the
NH-U14S guarantees perfect contact pressure and maximum convenience on all
Compatibility with past and future sockets
Complying with the open SecuFirm™ standard, the NH-U14S can be made compatible
with the older LGA1366 and LGA775 sockets using the optional NM-I3 mounting kit,
which is provided by Noctua free of charge. If technically possible, Noctua will
also provide upgrade kits for future sockets.
NT-H1 thermal compound
Having received more than 100 awards and recommendations from hardware
journalists around the world, Noctua¡¯s NT-H1 is a proven professional grade TIM
solution that provides minimum thermal resistance, excellent ease of use and
*On LG2011, using the 5mm anti-vibration pads
will make the rear fan overhang the RAM slots on the left side of the socket, so
please use standard height RAM (<32mm) for this configuration.
