Not got room for a NH-D14.... Maybe the Prolimatech Megahalem could be perfect for you?

Aye, not bad at all for £40 ish, and the D14 is a beast of a cooler.

A couple of things - the first page doesn't mention it supports socket 1156.

Also, you say you used Xigmatek fans - was this two fans as push/pull on the heatsink? It's a little ambiguous, otherwise great succinct review. Liked the Essex joke, isn't this the second now? You must have been talking to Jim too much, he hails from Essix like me dont he? ;-)

Eh, Guess there still isn't anything out right now that will change my mind from getting the D-14 later this week. :P

Tom, like what you have done in this test! The comparison of the mega and the NH-14 at 12v and 9v. The difference is seen to be 2c at 12v but ,uch greater at 9v. This suggests that the lower fin density of the Noctua NH-14 is great with lower CFM/RPM rated fans.

The key thing about the New NH-14 is that it works great with low speed fans. From the review you can see that if you are fine with 1200+ rpm fans then there will be little benefit from getting the noctua. This prolimatech will be fine!!

How come you don't compare the two with just push or just pull? It would be interesting how the Noctua compares with just the center 140mm.
