Product Overview

Based on the Award-Winning NH-C14

Having received more than 200 awards and recommendations from leading international hardware websites and magazines, the NH-C14 has become an established reference for 140mm top-flow coolers. With its deeper fin stack and more efficient NF-A14 PWM fan, the new S-version provides similar performance and further improved compatibility.

C-Type Top-Flow Design

The c-type top-flow design of the NH-C14S not only allows for superb quiet cooling performance while maintaining a much lower profile than today’s 140mm tower-style coolers but also ensures excellent airflow over RAM modules and near-socket motherboard components.

Low Profile Mode

Run with the NF-A14 fan installed underneath the fin stack, the NH-C14S stands only 115mm tall, which is much lower than tower coolers with 140mm or 120mm fans and allows it to fit many desktop style or HTPC cases.

High Clearance Mode

Run with the NF-A14 fan installed on top, the NH-C14S provides extended clearance underneath the fin stack. This way, it is fully compatible with chipset coolers and RAM modules with heat-spreaders of up to 70mm height.

Offset Design for PCIe Clearance

Compared to the original NH-C14, the layout of the NH-C14S has been offset in two axis. Thanks to this measure, the heatsink will clear the top PCIe slot on most micro-ATX and ATX motherboards when the bendings of the heatpipes face the PCIe slots or the I/O panel.

NF-A14 140mm Premium Fan

Featuring sophisticated aerodynamic optimisations such as Flow Acceleration Channels, the NF-A14 is renowned to be among the best quiet 140mm fans on the market. Combined with the deeper fin stack of the NH-C14S, it allows the cooler to achieve similar performance levels as its dual fan predecessor despite only using a single NF-A14.

PWM Support and Low-Noise Adaptor

The NF-A14 premium fan supplied with the NH-C14S supports PWM for convenient automatic speed control through the motherboard. In addition, the maximum fan speed can be reduced from 1500 to 1200 RPM using the supplied Low-Noise Adaptor for even quieter operation.

SecuFirm2 Mounting System

Noctua’s SecuFirm2 mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety and ease of use. Supporting Intel LGA115x (LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156), LGA2011 (LGA2011-0 & LGA2011-3), LGA2066 and AMD (AM3(+), AM2(+), FM1, FM2(+)), the SecuFirm2 mounting included with the NH-C14S guarantees perfect contact pressure and maximum convenience on all current sockets.

Compatibility with Past and Future Sockets

Complying with the open SecuFirm standard, the NH-C14S 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 outstanding reliability.

Six Years Warranty

Noctua products are renowned for their impeccable quality and outstanding longevity. Like all Noctua fans, the supplied NF-A14 features an MTBF rating of more than 150,000 hours and the entire NH-C14S package comes with a full six years manufacturer’s warranty.

Intel’s been on a mission of late. That mission revolves around grouping and standardising key technologies under various banners that are designed to ensure hardware compatibility and consumer ease of use. We’ll take a closer look at three such technologies that fall under the headings of Centrino, Viiv, and vPro, respectively.

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

140mm Noctua NH-C14S Top-Flow CPU Cooler, NT-H1 Thermal Compound, LGA2066/2011/1150/1/5/6 + AMD FM1/2+/AM3+/3/2+/2 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Fan and heat sink - super quiet As always with Noctua fans you get great cooling and super quiet. My Asus Rampage needed the fan sensor setting to ignore as when the pc booted it wasn't spinning at even the lowest 200rpm setting the bios monitor offered. Once up and running idling it sits about 600rpm (pwm). When gaming the fan is quiet (the fan in the gpu makes more noise so you cant actually hear this fan). My idle temp has dropped from 42-44 to 33-35 - impressive (previous fan was 120mm not 140mm). I had to go for this particular heatsink due to vengeance RAM so tall. Cooling a Xeon 3.5ghz 6 core chip that has a 130w tdp. I know the Noctua fan's are more expensive than others but to be honest all my pc's have them in now as I just love the low noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ryzen 2700x 4u server case So my rig is sitting in a custom 4u server case with 3 140mm fans at the front with a high flow 120mm as exhaust. Pc is in a server rack at current time of testing was at 25 deg ambient temperature. Ryzen 3700x OC on all 8 cores @4.2Ghz With the stock Wraith cooler with 3 minutes of cinebench i was hitting 84/85 deg. With the noctua i was hitting 76 deg. the wraith would of been screaming as where can barley hear it (noise not an issue to me its in the garage) Idle temps stock 45 deg, Noctua 33 deg (this is with both fans set to max) Hope this helps with someone with a similar setup to me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic cooler I liked this cooler very much, but it only performs well under certain environments. The cooler only works well when put in a system where the case exhaust runs parallel to the fans on the C14S. If intake and exhaust run perpendicularly to it, it can make temperatures significantly worse due to bad internal air turbulence. The one I got also came with some manufacturing defects, like bent heatsink fins. Although I am returning mine, I would still recommend the product for what it is.
Date published: 2015-11-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, effective cooling Easy to install after unscrewing motherboard from case. Much quieter than stock fan and knocks a good 10 degrees off operating temperature in comparison. It has no trouble keeping my overclocked Intel 4790k cpu cool and the down blowing fan keeps the RAM and other components cool.

Does this come with the mounting kit for AM4 sockets?

The Noctua website says this cooler is compatible with AMD4 out of the box since 2019: Does item you ship have the AM4 mounting kit in the box? Or is it a pre 2019 item? Thanks
