Noctua set out to improve on their previous design and they did, and it was a noticeable improvement. The NH-D14 is bigger and heavier than its predecessor, though. With both fans installed on the NH-D14 the cooler weighs in at a whopping 1.24kg so some may shy away from it just based on the weight, let alone its overall size, but there are those that will jump on this and not think twice about it. You can pick up a NH-D14 for $79.99 plus shipping. Now in a slow economy it may be hard to drop that much on a cooler. I can agree with that, but it is worth the money and falls into the old saying “you get what you pay for.” With the Noctua NH-D14 beating out 18 other coolers on our overclocked Intel Core i7 920 processor we have to give it the Legit Reviews Editor's Choice award!
