The NA-HC5 chromax.black.swap heatsink cover is an add-on accessory for Noctua’s award-winning NH-U14S, NH-U14S TR4-SP3 and NH-U14S DX-3647 CPU coolers. Made from high-quality aluminium with black powder-coating finish and including swappable inlays in black, white, red, blue, green and yellow, it allows users to colour-customise the cooler in order to coordinate it with popular build colour schemes such as all black, black and white or black and red. Thanks to the easy, straightforward installation, changing the looks of your NH-U14S cooler only takes a few minutes and doesn’t even require taking it off the CPU. Combined with the chromax.black.swap edition NF-A15 fan, the NA-HC5 gives you endless possibilities to design your very own, individual NH-U14S that looks just as great as it cools!

The cover increases the height of the heatsink by 7mm (from 165 to 172mm) and the total width by 3mm (from 150mm to 153mm). Please make sure that your case offers sufficient clearance and that the cover doesn’t make contact with any other components such as PCIe cards!

NA-HC5 chromax.black.swap Review

Noctua has once again delivered and this time for another premium cooler NH-U14S and its variants in the form of NA-HC5 and NA-HC6 chromax covers. These covers are based on the same design and theme what we saw for their previous chromax covers for the NH-D15 and NH-U12S variants. The NA-HC5 chromax.black.swap allows the user to change the outlook of their NH-U14S cooler just like that without any hassle in a matter of a couple of minutes, maximum. This level of customization will allow the Noctua lovers in particular and the users of air coolers, in general, to still make the splendid looking build using the chromax line of accessories from the Noctua with the most important aspect of no compromise on the performance. This can be further complemented by adding Noctua iPPC fans or chromax line up of the fans by color customizing the syncing the anti-vibration pads. These cover have 6 years of warranty. The NA-SAVP1 chromax.grey is a set of 16 silicon made anti-vibration pads that are best suited for the Redux line of the Noctua fans. Yes, they are compatible with other Noctua fans. The compatibility list can be checked on their website or in the picture above. These pads are soft, flexible and tear proof and are made to last longer. They come with the Noctua’s 6 years of the warranty.
Test verdict: "Buying the chromax accessories for the air cooler and the fans will allow the user to fully customize their builds’ theme and color scheme though this would mean paying more besides the cooler and the fans’ price but it is worth it. The Noctua NA-SAVP1 chromax.grey, NA-HC5 chromax.black.swap, NA-HC6 chromax.black, and NA-HC6 chromax.white come recommended by us." (Nauman Siddique, EnosTech.com)

NA-HC5 chromax.black.swap Review

Die NA-HC5 chromax.black.swap Kühlerabdeckung ist eigentlich recht simpel aufgebaut, kann aber, was das Design angeht, wahre Wunder bewirken und ist durch die austauschbaren Farbstreifen sehr gut an das jeweilige Farbkonzept anpassbar. Die Verarbeitung der Kühlerabdeckung wurde sehr sauber ausgeführt und das Montagekonzept ist sehr gut durchdacht, wodurch die Blende in weniger als fünf Minuten montiert ist.
Test verdict: "Mit der NA-HC5 chromax.black.swap Kühlerabdeckung hat Noctua eine „Aluminiumblende“ in sein Sortiment aufgenommen, durch welche man einen vorhandenen Kühler aus der NH-U14S Serie einen ganz besonderen Look verpassen kann." (Patrick Seus, mod-your-case.de)
