    Noctua NH-D15: Update to an Icon

    ConclusionThe Noctua NH-D15 is the rare successor to a popular product that actually improves over every aspect of the original. It's only a slightly better cooler than the D14, but has superior acoustics even though Noctua's newer fan models aren't as smooth sounding. This is due to having two fans of the same model rather than the D14's odd 140+120 mm fan mix which never really made any sense to begin with. While it uses the essentially the same excellent heatsink mounting mechanism as its predecessor, the system of hooking the fan clips onto tiny plastic eyelets inserted into the fans' mounting holes has been gleefully abandoned for a more traditional and simple method. In the grand scheme of things however, the D15 does little to distinguish itself from its competitors. Similarly monstrous offerings from Prolimatech and Thermalright deliver equivalent or better dual fan performance. The D14 was the cream of the crop when it was released but dual tower heatsinks have since been eclipsed by thicker single tower designs. Noctua's own older/smaller/cheaper heatsinks have held up fairly well, with the C14 being every bit the D15's equal, and the sleek U14S doesn't trail far behind either. The D15 is certainly better than the D14, but the rest of the field has improved as well. There are even a few much smaller coolers that stack of very favorably. The Noctua NH-D15 is currently selling for US$90, which seems to be the standard rate these days for a flagship cooler. Given Noctua's reputation and overall package, we don't see them having a problem commanding this kind of premium, just as they have in the past. That being said, like many oversized coolers, you'll need to look elsewhere if you want some semblance of value. If you can source a Scythe heatsink, the Mugen 4, and the Kotetsu in particular, offer much of the same performance for US$50 and less, even though they are armed just a single 120 mm fan. If you prefer the complete Noctua package, the older NH-C14 is a viable alternative as well, especially as it can be had for US$20~$30 less.

    Noctua NH-D15 Review

    ConclusionFor years the NH-D14 was the King of the Hill, but move over D14, there is a new King in town and he comes from the same DNA. At a list price of $99.99 in the U.S., the NH-D15 is indeed toward the upper range of what most people will spend on a cooling solution for their computer, but for that price you get a reliable cooler that delivers high performance and beats everything I have tested. I have to say I was really surprised at how well the D15 performs. Add to that the memory compatibility, ease of installation, and quiet operation and I have a hard time finding any faults. In fact, I couldn't find any.The engineering that went into the D15 sure paid off. After you test coolers for a while, you think you have seen it all. How many more degrees can anyone shave off? You get to where you can look at a cooler and before you ever install it, you have a feel for where the thermal numbers will probably fall, and usually I am fairly close. Well, Noctua has proven that you can still find ways to push the Mercury a little farther down the thermometer.

    Conclusion Note: The above installation images were taken on an MSI X99 motherboard, testing was performed on the Gigabyte X99 Gaming 5 using an i7-5960X CPU. Starting with the build quality of the Noctua NH-D15 we have a product which looks and feels very well made. Every component is manufactured to a high standard and the finish applied, exceptional. We note that it feels incredibly sturdy in hand and even down to little touches such as anti-vibration mounts Noctua seem to have every angle covered. Design wise, as always with Noctua the finish on the cooler, mixed with the colour scheme on the fan looks great also. This is only enhanced by the massive size. Speaking of that size, yes the cooler is huge but the fin arrangement is as compatible with memory modules as we could hope. There are of course some great lower profile DDR4 modules around (as there are DDR3) so building a system with high spec memory shouldn’t be an issue. Just choose wisely. In terms of performance the NH-D15 circulates a large amount of air in our system, assisting with overall temperatures but looking at the CPU specifically it is no surprise that the cooler performs well. With a stock CPU it outperforms smaller alternatives (so basically all other coolers!) and when we move to an overclocked speed the strength of the cooler shows through, exceeding entry level liquid cooling while maintaining decent noise levels. Those who want low noise operation can of course stick to one or two fans with the Low Noise Adapters that Noctua bundle. Stock i7-5960X: [kml_flashembed publishmethod=”static” fversion=”8.0.0″ movie=”” width=”640″ height=”360″ targetclass=”flashmovie” wmode=”opaque”]  [/kml_flashembed] Intel i7-5960X @ 4.5GHz [kml_flashembed publishmethod=”static” fversion=”8.0.0″ movie=”” width=”640″ height=”360″ targetclass=”flashmovie” wmode=”opaque”]  [/kml_flashembed] In terms of value, certainly the Nocuta NH-D15 is at the higher end of the market price wise but that is to be expected given the large amount of metal used here, along with the various bundled items which include two quality fans. Noctua do add some value with a long 6-year warranty which essentially means the cooler is guaranteed for the life of most builds, maybe even through two. Summary: Excellent thermal performance, decent noise levels and great looks. The Noctua NH-D15 wins our performance award.
