Noctua’s NH-D14 is one of the biggest coolers around, large enough that there is a 120mm inside the heatsink as well as a 140mm fan on the side and weighs in at 1.24kg.  At 130x140x160mm you had better make sure that not only is your case big enough to fit it but that your motherboards DIMM slots are positioned in a way not to be crushed or shoved out of position by the cooler.  For such a large cooler it is rather quiet, rated about 40dB of noise.  [H]ard|OCP put it to the test here.

“Noctua’s new CPU cooler works with about any Intel or AMD processor still in use by enthusiasts, and packs a lot of cooling power into a huge package. Two fans, two columns of cooling fins, and six heatpipes are engineered to give the computer hardware aficionado more cooling at less decibels.”
