Noctua Cooling Competition - Winning Entries

The Winners Announced

Noctua Cooling Competition

Noctua Cooling Competition 

Recently we launched our competition with our friends at Noctua, we have been singing their praises for months about the bohemoth that is the NH-D14 we felt it was about time we shared the love with our forum members. But in a final twist when the competition went live the only requirement was imagination. Yep thats right we left it completely up to our forum members sleep deprived caffine addicted minds. We were a bit worried it would go drastically one way or the other.... It did.

So good were the entries we felt it was only right they got some front page air time, to show their friends families and more than likely their mental health practitioners! So without further adue lets see who won what, and what they did to get it!


First Prize was one of 3 Noctua NH-D14's:

1st  - Runebeard
2nd - Chudley
3rd  - Alien/ ScottyMcGroogerballs (damn forum name changers)

Second Prize was one of 2 Noctua NH-U12P's

1st  - Alexhull
2nd - AMDFTW

Third Prize was one of 5 Noctua Cooling Kits

1st  - Taurus
2nd - Valor
3rd  - Frantuga
4th  - Socks
5th  - Runebeard - (We thought Runebeards entries were so good he deserved one of these aswell!)

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 It's a great cooler but it is really out of date now and there are much better offerings on the market.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:
