Noctua NH-U14S | Installation Manual | LGA115x
Dear customer,
Congratulations on choosing the Noctua NH-U14S.
The NH-U14S is the first 140mm model in Noctua’s award-winning
NH-U series. First introduced in 2005, the NH-U series has become a standard choice for premium quality quiet CPU coolers and
won more than 400 awards and recommendations from leading
international hardware websites and magazines.
Enjoy your NH-U14S! Yours sincerely,
Place the backplate on the rear side of the mainboard so that the
bolts stick through the mounting holes.
Fix the mounting bars using the 4 thumb screws.
Caution: Please make sure that the three cut-outs in the
supplied backplate align with the screws of the mainboard’s stock
backplate.
Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO
This manual will guide you through the installation process of the
SecuFirm2™ mounting system step by step. Prior to installing
the cooler, please consult the compatibility list on our website
(www.noctua.at/compatibility) and verify that the cooler is fully
compatible with your motherboard. Should you encounter any difficulties, please check the FAQs on our website (www.noctua.at/faqs)
and don’t hesitate to contact our support team at
support@noctua.at. Noctua cannot be held responsible for any
damage or losses caused by compatibility issues.
Caution: Gently tighten the screws until they stop, but don’t use
excessive force.
Step 3
Installing the mounting bars
First put the plastic spacers onto the bolts of the backplate, then
add the mounting bars.
Step 4
Applying thermal paste
If there are residual traces of thermal paste or thermal pads on
your CPU, please clean them off first. Then press a small drop
(4-5mm diameter) of NT-H1 onto the centre of the heatspreader.
Multilingual versions of this manual are available on our website:
www.noctua.at/manuals
Required mounting parts:
1x NM-IBP2 Backplate
2x NM-IMB3 Mounting Bars
Caution:
Choose the alignment of the mounting bars according to the desired
final orientation of the cooler:
4x NM-IPS1 Spacers
4x NM-ITS1 Thumbscrews
Orientation A
Orientation B
Step 1
Removing the mainboard
Caution: Applying too much thermal paste will lower heat
conductivity and cooling performance!
In case you want to use the cooler on an assembled system and
your case doesn’t have a cut-out at the rear side of the mainboard
tray, you first have to remove the mainboard from the case in
order to be able to install the supplied backplate.
Step 2
Attaching the backplate
Caution: The supplied backplate will install over the mainboard’s
stock backplate, so the mainboard’s stock backplate must not be
taken off.
Step 5
Fastening the heatsink to the CPU
Caution: Make sure that the curved sides of the mounting bars are
pointing outwards.
Caution: Please first take off the fan as well as the protection cover
at the bottom side of the heatsink.
LGA115x
Then put the heatsink onto the CPU and screw it to the screw
threads of the mounting bars.
Noctua NH-U14S | Installation Manual | LGA115x
Connect the fan to the mainboard’s CPU fan header.
Clip position for thick spacers:
Depending on your CPU and the temperature inside the case, you
may interconnect the supplied NA-RC7 Low-Noise Adapter (L.N.A.)
in order to further reduce the fan’s operating noise.
Caution: Tighten the screws until they stop.
Caution: When using the L.N.A., check the temperature of your
CPU using appropriate software (e.g. the respective applications
of your mainboard manufacturer), in order to evade automatic
throttling of the CPU due to the increased temperature. If the cooling performance is insufficient, please increase case ventilation or
remove the L.N.A.
Step 6
Adding a second fan
Reattach the fan to the heatsink using the supplied steel clips:
The NH-U14S includes an extra set of fan clips and an extra set of
thicker anti-vibration pads for installing a second NF-A15 fan in
push/pull mode in order to further improve cooling performance.
Fan Setup
1.
Clip position for standard spacers:
Please use the thicker anti-vibration pads on the rear NF-A-15 fan
for improved acoustics if space allows. The y-cable supplied with
the retail NF-A15 fan can be used to control the speed of both fans
via the same mainboard fan header.
2.
Please note that while the NF-A15 fan included with the NHU14S runs at 1500rpm, Noctua recommends using the standard
1200rpm retail version as a rear fan in push/pull mode as the
combination of 1500rpm at the front and 1200rpm at the rear
will provide the best balance of performance and acoustics.
While Noctua recommends using an NF-A15 fan for best results in
dual fan mode, the extra set of fan clips can also be used to install
most other fans. In this case, please put the supplied self-adhesive
anti-vibration strips onto the heatsink to avoid vibrations being
transmitted to the cooler.
If you would like to run both fans at the same speed, please use
the supplied Low-Noise Adaptor on the front fan to reduce the
speed to 1200rpm.
Warranty, Support and FAQs
Even with high-grade products and strict quality control, the possibility of defects cannot be eliminated entirely. Therefore, we aim
at providing the highest possible level of reliability and convenience by offering a warranty period of 6 years and direct, fast and
straightforward RMA service.
