* Updated Noctua NH-C14 Frostytech has pictures and more

UPDATE: Noctua have released a metal support bar to provide additional stability to the upper half of the NH-C14 heatsink and address the concerns about a slight oscillation that Frostytech noted in its initial review. The metal bar is fixed to the base of the heatsink and supports the fan against a pair of soft rubberized tips. According to the Noctua rep, the bracket "will be provided free of charge to customers who experience any such issues. We'll probably also include this with the cooler in the future or add additional bracing to the heatsink itself."
