Frequently Bought Together
Product Overview Noctua's latest coolers feature their classic U-series single tower CPU coolers which have received more than 400 awards and recommendations from the international press. The S-version's 45mm slim shape guarantees 100% compatibility with tall RAM modules and at the same time, its fine-tuned design and the class-leading fans with PWM support provide fully automatic speed control allowing it to further improve its predecessor's renowned quiet cooling performance. Topped off with the trusted, pro-grade SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system, Noctua's proven NT-H1 thermal compound and a six years manufacturer's warranty, these slim tower coolers are a complete premium quality solution that combines outstanding performance, quiet operation and excellent compatibility. Features Award-winning tower series
The NH-U12S and U14S are the latest version of Noctua's award-winning NH-U12 coolers. First introduced in 2005, the NH-U series has become a standard choice for premium quality quiet CPU coolers and has won more than 400 awards and recommendations from leading international hardware websites and magazines.

100% RAM compatibility
Thanks to its slim design with only 45mm fin depth, the coolers will not overhang the RAM slots even with two fans installed. 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.

Classic 120mm tower size for excellent overall compatibility
Standing 158mm tall (U12S) and 165mm tall (U14S) the coolers are short enough to fit most modern mid-end or high-end tower cases. 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.

Premium quality fans
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. The NH-U12S is supplied with the NF-F12 Focused Flow fan while the NH-U14S has the NF-A15 fan.

PWM support and Low-Noise Adaptor
Both fans supplied with the coolers support PWM for convenient automatic speed control through the mainboard. In addition, the maximum fan speed can be reduced 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 and AMD (AM3+, AM2+, FM1, FM2), the SecuFirm2 mounting included with the coolers guarantees perfect contact pressure and maximum convenience on all current sockets.

6 years warranty
Noctua products are renowned for their impeccable quality and outstanding longevity. 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.

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.

Noctua NH-U14S Ultra-Quiet Slim CPU Cooler with 140mm NF-A15 fan for Intel & AMD CPU's is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Cooler works well Cooling a i7 7700 @4,5, ambient room temp @23C CPU idles at 27c.Under load (Real Bench) runs at 45c after one hour. It's better than my old H100i, and a lot quieter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent quality and provides pretty good cooling This is a well made, sturdy cooler, that will far exceed what any stock cooler could offer you. Noctua do a fairly odd colour scheme, but their products are extremely well made, and keep my i7 6700k nice and cool (4.2ghz OC'd). I've hit the 60's under load doing tasks like video editing/rendering and playing CPU intensive games like Arma. For the most part however, it hovers at around 40-50 degrees C in most usage scenarios, and at 28-33 in idle. Overall, very very impressed in what an air cooler like this can do. One tip though, be careful when working inside the case as it is very easy to brush the heatsink radiator and bend some of the fins as they are very delicate. Just keep that in mind whilst building!
Date published: 2016-09-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Cooler This cooler is incredible. With my i7 4790k @ 4.7GHz with 1.301 volts it stays around 80°c in AIDA64. The quality of the cooler is also great, with very thick and strong mounting mechanisms and a completly unblemished array of heat fins. The fan stays completely silent on the desktop and is almost inaudible in games, even in AIDA64 it is quiet, and I'm not using the low noise adapter. The cooler does not interfear with my RAM and I have every slot filled with G.Skill RipjawsX. The one tiny complaint I have is that is is advertised as being "smaller". Smaller than what? A house?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality cooler bought to replace my thermalright macho 120 rev b which came with no backplate.this cooler uses amd stock backplate fx 8350.gigabyte motherboard and a fractal design arc midi 2 case fits in beautifully and misses all my ram slots.using core temp or hwmonitor idle temp under 10c and playing battlefield 4 on high with a msi gtx980 of 30c.really nice quality cooler with nice fan and really quite.should last me years
Date published: 2015-11-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Came in a massive box, took a bit of time installing but got there in the end. It's very silent and still keeps it cool, even at full speed it's very quite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quiet and keeps cpu very cool Great product, no reservations and negatives as of yet.
Date published: 2015-07-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product The heat sink on this is large. Fits in most full towers but if you have a midi it's unlikely to fit. It's also pig ugly. That being said the heat sink sucks the heat out of a CPU almost as efficiently as water cooling. The fan that comes with it is basically silent. In short, it's ugly but it's an amazing cooler.

Questions & Answers

Will this fit inside LN64930. with LN66322?

Asked by: rasul972
Yes, easily, I would not recommend using large profile RAM if you intend to populate all 4 slots though, Corsair LPX would be a good RAM choise.
