Noctua New D-Type Heatsink Prototype Built on NH-D14 Design

So looks like Noctua are going to unleash two new massive Coolers. X79?

Noctua is designing a new double fin-stack D-type CPU Cooler its prototype is on display at Computex. Its heatsink follows the same design principle as the NH-D14, and is roughly the same size, but with a few design optimizations. First, the two aluminum fin stacks aren't cuboidal. Towards the bottom, the fins are narrower, creating more room for components on the motherboard, next to the heatsink (such as memory modules and VRM heatsinks). The recessed lower fins create 60 mm of height clearance for memory modules. The density of the aluminum is also increased, with 50 fins, increasing surface area. The 120 mm NF-P12 from the original NH-D14 design are replaced by the company's new Focused Flow 120 mm fan.

Where do you want to fit this beside a custom case?! Even then, there's no way in hell, you'll be able to fit this with the rest of the components...

Saw this elsewhere the other day and even as a NH-D14 owner, I wouldn't touch this.

It's just too much...

Wow.........so big. Reckon it might rip the processor off the motherboard, or the motherboard off the case??

Mine bows enough already, so I wouldn't be surprised if it did

It's like a NH-U12P with two extra coolers slapped on for good measure.

I wouldn't be too quick to judge this, because it is a prototype, and it does say that they are in the process of designing it. The final version could be quite different.

Holy hell, I've just realised I've been talking about a different prototype

(didn't click the link till now )

In that case I retract my statement. The original linked one looks all right. Not overly different from my current one TBH.

This is the other prototype I was thinking about:

It may just be a prototype, but once it's hit that stage they generally don't change drastically.


If nothing else, it will be interesting to see how well the newer fans perform.

Same here, although I just have a fan either side of the single sink....I'm pretty sure its already bowed the MB a bit..........

What is the best Noctua Fan?
All Noctua fans boast great silence and performance, but as far as wanting a nice balance between silence and airflow, what of their fans does this best? On a side note does anyone know of fans that perform with similar silence and airflow but come in black? :p
