Users mostly buy these coolers in the hope of overclocking their processor to the maximum, and get the best from it.

The ranking is relative because some ventirads were only used with processors from previous generations compared to those having been released in recent years.

The Noctua NH-D14 is doing very well despite its age. The Noctua NH-D15 should have a greater potential if you have or expect to acquire a last generation processor.
