It's a fantastic cooler. Better than most AIO liquid coolers. You'll probably hit the stability cap far before reaching high temps.

Not as good as most AIO cooler. Maybe value but def. not perf. Can you cite your proof?

Performance above any 120mm AIO and any 240mm except the h110: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Noctua/NH-U14S/6.html

I sometimes think people underestimate what a good HSF is capable of.

Yep. It can only cool to ambient temperature at best, but it promotes case airflow, cooling of the motherboard, etc., so it's an extremely well-rounded cooling solution.

Personally I don't think I'll ever bother putting liquid cooling in any of my builds unless I make a full custom loop myself.

https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Noctua/NH-U14S/6.html I would say you should do just fine with it from the looks of the benchmarks of the link I provided. You should be able to achieve a full overclock and not worry about over heating. Just make sure to test it before you call it good.

Exactly the way to go dude..

It is always the best option to get multiple Expert opinions and Re-confirm before spending our hard-earned cash.. This review will also re-confirm its status..

I would also consider the Cryorig R1 Ultimate or R1 Universal models. They will give you similar performance and look a heck of a lot better :)

Another great option would be the Lepa Aquachanger 240. It performs at the level of an h100i but does it more quietly, and for under $80.
