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

Overclocking, thats why we are here right? To eek out every last mhz from our components in an effort to beat the banker deal or no deal style! Trouble is when overclocking the trade of is an increase in heat [sad face].

Here at OC3D we have been lucky enough to have tested many of the quality coolers from Noctua, one of which the NH-D14 is as far as we are concearned THE best air cooler on the planet. Not only is it the best performing air cooler we have ever tested, but is also about as close to silent as you are ever going to get.

But now the time has come for us to share the love, thanks to Noctua we have a pretty large haul of Noctua Cooling goodies to give away to our forum members! If you take a look below theres not 1 but 3 NH-D14's to give away, 2 NH-U12P SE2's and 5 Noctua cooling kits!

With prizes like these you must be wondering what the hell you have to do to have a chance of getting your hands on them? Well its all very simple, you just need to be a member of our forums post in this thread and pretty much tell us why you should win. This could be pictures of your current cooling system and why it needs updating, it could be telling us why you think Noctua are epic, hey Im always in the mood for an ego boost tell me too! The possibilties are endless, videos, photos, anything the more effort you put in the better a chance you might have. At the end of August the OC3D team and Noctua will get together and decide who is best....

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
