CM Hyper 212 EVO vs Noctua NH-D14

I'm new to pc building in general and now that I've got most of my components figured out, I'm starting to doubt my heat-sink choice. My two options are (if you didn't see the thread name) the CM Hyper 212 EVO and the Noctua NH-D14. I know that both are rather large and I'm using an i7 4770k, the Fractal Design Define r4, two sticks of Corsair Vengeance RAM (16gb) and all that on the Asus Maximus Hero VI C2. I've deduced that no matter what heat-sink I go with, I'm going to get some Noctua NF-F12 for them, not sure if one or two. If you have any other ideas for another heat-sink/ heat-sink fans I could use instead, ill be happy to hear them. Thanks.

    The Noctua is the better performer (and priced accordingly). However, for light OC, and gaming the Hyper 212 EVO will work very well. (I have the Hyper 212 EVO on my OCed i7 3770K running at 4.6 GHz and we game at high settings. No issues).
  2. Only use one fan on the EVO second one will offer no boost in performance.

    No contest in the cooling dept. D14 wins.
