    I was debating between all sorts of CPU coolers; the Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 3, the Noctua NH-D15, NH-D14, NH-C14S and so on. I decided on the U14S as I figured it was a nice middle ground between cooling ability (a lot of folks with experience of Noctua CPU coolers stated that the U14S showcases a cooling performance not far from a NH-D14, but with a much smaller heatsink) For now it’s doing a stellar job, keeping the CPU within a very acceptable temperature range. I’ll consider putting a second fan on it if I need to, but for now it’s doing a great job.

    This is a big cooling unit! I bought this based on reviews, and it is fairly easy to install for a first timer - just wondering if i should have gotten two fans vs. the single it comes with...

    Best and quietest air cooler I have used to date.

    Easy to install, looks good, keeps the CPU really cool. It was interesting running a stress test on the processor and seeing the temp creep up over 60c and watching the number quickly drop back down. Have only experimented a bit with overclocking but I'm sure this will handle whatever I throw at it. Oh, and it is SILENT.

    Amazing CPU cooler! It came with rpm reducers which made it dead silent, even at load.

    This thing is a monster. Works very well and is incredibly quiet.

    Great air cooler, performance on par with a 240mm AIO and this thing stays virtually silent.

    Totally incredible. This thing feels more like a car-part than a computer part. Completely solid and reliable. At full load my i7-5930K has yet to reach 60 degrees C, as compared to a pretty common place 80-90 degrees on my last machine.

    For all the talk about the size, I had no problem fitting this into my machine. Installation was super easy. It has high clearance so that you don't have to worry about clearing the RAM, but that didn't even end up being an issue. With the way my ASUS X99-A is configured there's actually no overlap.

    Also this fan is very quiet, which is nice. Great product all around.

    However, I should also mention that it is rather ugly. I really wish Noctua would just pony up for at last ONE other color option, so it doesn't look like you have a part from 1992 in your machine.
