Hello,

Just a quick question. Which would be better for overclocking? The NH-D14 or the H100? Thanks!

I'd go for the D-14.
Why?
It will have similar cooling performance and operate much quieter.
Better question = what cpu?

The NH-D14 seems to have slightly better idle temps where-as the H100 has slightly better load temps.

There both very similar performers so go for the one you like the look of or is cheapest.

depend on your ccpu and how high your overclock,
D-14 no risk , RAm Low sink
H100 Risk leaked also suitable for all RAM heatsink

Another thing to consider is if a big air cooler will obstruct any memory slots you might want to use. The H100 will not.

I use the D14 and it's quiet at 12v whereas H100 It was very loud, but I suppose it's personal preference.
