Noctua’s NH-U14S is a larger version of the 120mm counterpart with an extra heatpipe but still maintains the slim profile to ensure full compatibility for memory kits of any profiles on most of the motherboards. As pointed out in the NH-U12S review, Noctua emphasizes on detailing, especially for mounting options. Like its smaller brother, this heatsink comes with a single fan but Noctua was kind enough to bundle an extra NF-A15 SSO2 bearing fan. Let us see how good this CPU cooler performs, especially in comparison with the smaller counterpart.
