Check out these quotes from Noctua NH-U14S reviews & previews
"The Noctua NH-U14S is a highly efficient, relatively slim, extremely well built, low noise, and great performing heatsink that delivers everything it promises to do. It is no NH-D14, nor should we expect it to be. It does not defy physics. But it defies everyone else in its weight class."
"I have struggled to find (m)any flaws in this product from Noctua. If you are looking for an Air CPU cooler that can offer you 100% RAM compatibility (with the vast majority of enthusiast motherboards), best-in-class performance, silence, top-of-the-line build quality and a relatively affordable price point then you can’t really go wrong with the Noctua NH-U14S. Any PC enthusiast would be over the moon to be able to put this CPU cooler in their rig, and understandably so."
"What we've seen from Noctua's NH-U14S CPU cooler is a very well built thermal solution which gets the finer points of installation, fan changes, noise abatement, you name it, right."
"I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect the NH-U14S to perform the way it did. Whatever techniques Noctua have utilized to get this kind of performance out of this single tower cooler were totally worth it, and that is not even considering the extremely high quality features you normally get with their products. The NH-U14S is well suited for silent PC builds as well as high end overclocking on air, depending on configuration. Adding an extra fan improves performance, but at the cost of noise. Depending on your particular setup, you may be able to get away with one fan."
"It was pointed out to us that Noctua has addressed the resonance issue when adding a secondary fan to the NH-U14S and U12S and was something we overlooked in the installation guides. Noctua suggests that if space permits you should install the larger fan isolators which will move the "pull" fan away from the radiator slightly and thus minimize the resonance passing thru the radiator fins. Keep in mind the noise isn't from vibration but rather the fan blades passing over each other which brings us to the second method they suggest. The "push" fan should be configured to run at 1500rpm while the pull fan spins slightly less around 1200rpm. By changing the rpm you lower the frequency and create a passive noise canceling effect."
