Today I will be reviewing the Noctua NH-D15 CPU cooler. The NH-D15 is a beautiful behemoth. Do not let the color of the fans fool you because this is not your grandpa’s cooler! The colors scheme of the fans can be a little off putting at first but as many of you may already know that these colors have been what Noctua has used for years. Trust me after using the Noctua NH-D15 the fans colors no longer become an eyesore rather when I see the coffee and cream scheme I associate them with superb quality. The Noctua-D15 is the improved version of their previous version NH-D14 that was released what feels to be many eons ago. The Noctua NH-D15 can be run as a single fan setup; and even if you absolutely wanted too you could rig up a third (note there are only 2 sets of the fan clips included). If you are in the market for a premium cooler to meet your demands, then the Noctua NH-D15 will not disappoint.
Built on the basis of the legendary NH-D14 and carrying on its quest for ultimate quiet cooling performance, Noctua’s flagship model NH-D15 is an elite-class dual tower air cooler built for the highest demands. Its expanded heatpipe layout and two premium grade NF-A15 140mm fans, with PWM support for automatic speed control allow, it to further improve the NH-D14’s award-winning efficiency.
Topped off with the trusted, pro-grade SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system, Noctua’s proven NT-H1 thermal compound and a full 6 years manufacturer’s warranty, the NH-D15 forms a complete premium quality solution that represents a deluxe choice for overclockers and silent-enthusiasts alike.
