Noctua Cooling Competition  


Competition Closed


Overclocking, that's why we are here right? To eek out every last MHz from our components in an effort to beat the banker deal or no deal style! Trouble is when overclocking the trade of is an increase in heat [sad face].

Here at OC3D we have been lucky enough to have tested many of the quality coolers from Noctua, one of which the NH-D14 is as far as we are concerned THE best air cooler on the planet. Not only is it the best performing air cooler we have ever tested, but is also about as close to silent as you are ever going to get.

But now the time has come for us to share the love, thanks to Noctua we have a pretty large haul of Noctua Cooling goodies to give away to our forum members! If you take a look below there's not 1 but 3 NH-D14's to give away, 2 NH-U12P SE2's and 5 Noctua cooling kits!

With prizes like these you must be wondering what the hell you have to do to have a chance of getting your hands on them? Well its all very simple, you just need to be a member of our forums JOIN HERE and go to THISthread and pretty much tell us why you should win. This could be pictures of your current cooling system and why it needs updating, it could be telling us why you think Noctua are epic, hey I'm always in the mood for an ego boost tell me too! The possibilities are endless, the more effort you put in the better a chance you might have. At the end of August the OC3D team and Noctua will get together and decide who is best....

My current cooler is a Noctua. It's a bit pants on AMD and therefore I would like to try one of their new coolers just to see if it performs better on AMD.

I love my Noctua, it's the Saab of PC components, but I can't afford to replace it with a more expensive one as it cost me a pretty penny.

There. That's my entry Quote

I have a ZALMAN that gives me a load temperature of 82°C at 4GHz with an E5300.

In order for me to actually overclock I need a better cooler

I must say Tom, you're looking mighty fine today Quote

Currently using a Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme on the LGA775 platform. It's a great cooler but it is really out of date now and there are much better offerings on the market. I need to keep my system as cool as possible as it is an overclocking rig. I test the maximum potential of the system on air cooling with a low multiplier and maximum FSB wherever possible. The cooler the CPU, the better it works. If I could shave off 5 to 10c using a Noctua I'd be very, very pleased!

Yo, Toonshorty, no spicing up Mr Logan!

I've tested the Noctua NT-H1 and it is a great thermal paste.Quote

Im sure photos, videos and a bit of effort might help everyones chances. A couple of lines of text isnt very impressive Quote

I like to run my system fast and quiet and I've spent a ton already trying. Noctua stuff is the best when it comes to quality and noise, I have a NF-P12 and its great. The NH-D14 looks amazing and exactly what I would like to buy if I could afford it right now to replace this:
