About this deal

The TR4-SP3 version is a tailored custom model for AMD’s TR4/SP3 platform (Ryzen Threadripper / Epyc) and features a larger contact surface as well as the latest SecuFirm2™ mounting system for socket TR4/SP3. We supply the latest technology solutions to organisations of all sizes across education, public and private sectors, helping thousands of organisations along their own digital transformation journeys. Measuring 125mm wide (including fan and fan clips), the coolers stay clear of the top PCIe slot on standard ATX or Micro-ATX motherboards, ensuring best compatibility with SLI and CrossFire setups. 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.

Tailored to fit the enormous integrated heat-spreaders (IHS) of AMD’s TR4/SP3-based processors, this customised design allows for an optimal heat flow from the CPU over the base to the heatpipes and onto the cooling fins. The purpose of this TekSpek is to delineate the publicly known features of Intel’s next generation desktop microarchitecture. The question is whether or not the Noctua NH-U14S a proper response to the market, or will it find bad surprises along the way. Now the box was pretty darn big, but this is only because they have thrown in a bunch of extra NF-S12A PWM fans that went missing last time for us to play around with. With its 52mm slim design, the NH-U14S will not overhang the RAM slots on AMD AM5 and AM4 motherboards, thus guaranteeing full compatibility with tall memory modules.

I would have prefered to see noise levels and efficiency at idle and at full CPU load instead of these artificial 7V and 12V levels. We offer a complete circular IT solution so as well as supplying the latest technology we also recycle unwanted tech, simplifying IT lifecycle management and helping to minimise the impact the technology industry is having on our environment with our fully accredited recycling facility. If you should receive a product that has been damaged while in transit please reach out to us here within 2 Days Recommended by more than 150 hardware publications and thousands of enthusiasts world-wide, the Noctua’s premium quality fans are renowned to combine superb static pressure, excellent heatsink performance and surprising quietness of operation.

Because the wire clip retention length is reduced to a balanced level rather than spanning the entire height of the heatsink as we have seen in old Noctua products, attachment stability is not compromised -- but the revised advantage is obvious. This gives the user full access to the memory modules on all current CPU sockets and guarantees 100% compatibility with tall heatspreaders or optional memory fans. The photo above shows the configuration of the heatpipes more clearly in relation to the base leading into the fin array. Due to its customised larger base, it cannot be used on smaller sockets and is incompatible with Noctua’s mounting kits for these sockets. According to Noctua it could be possible to use this CPU cooler on a CPU with a TDP of 280W, please see this page for further information.In addition, the maximum fan speed can be reduced from 1500 to 1200rpm using the supplied Low-Noise Adaptor for even quieter operation. The NH-U14S is a complete premium quality solution that combines superb performance, high compatibility and quiet operation. Based on the proven, 140mm size NH-U14S heatsink and equipped with Noctua’s award-winning, PWM controlled NF-A15 140mm fan, it combines maximum performance and superb acoustics. If not feasible, I'd like to see the thermal characteristics of each cooler using the same fan at the same speed (tested at many levels). After traveling half way around the world, it was transferred to Canada Post using the XpressPost service when it arrived on Canadian soil.

Supporting Intel LGA115x (LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156), LGA2011, LGA2066 and AMD (AM3+, AM2+, FM1, FM2), the SecuFirm2 mounting included with the coolers guarantees perfect contact pressure and maximum convenience on all current sockets. Lower quality heatsinks offer high initial performance, but degrades over time as contact between metals decreases due to thermal expansion and contraption. Like all Noctua fans, the supplied NF-F12 and NF-A15 feature an MTBF rating of more than 150,000 hours and the entire package comes with a full six years manufacturer’s warranty.According to the specifications, the Noctua NH-U14S is electroplated with nickel on top of its copper -- which has a thermal conductivity of only 90. The NH-U12S supports Intel LGA 115x (LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156) LGA2011 and AMD (AM3, AM2 +, FM1, FM2) and offers on all current sockets perfect pressure and maximum ease of installation.
