The Noctua NH-D14 is widely renowned by reviewers and enthusiasts alike as the best air cooler money can buy, over the years this title has been contested by the likes of the Thermalright Silver Arrow and a few others but nobody has been able to outright beat Noctua by any significant margin. The wait may finally be over.
Presenting Noctua's new flagship air cooler the NH-D15.
"Having convinced tens of thousands of quiet cooling enthusiasts around the globe, our NH-D14 has become a reference for top-tier dual tower heatsinks"
"In the end, it took us more than three years of continuous development, countless thermal simulations and over hundred samples to come up with a substantial improvement in efficiency. Staying true to our policy of not releasing anything we're not 100% satisfied with, we had to accept some delays in order to squeeze out the last few percent of performance, but now we're proud to finally release the NH-D15 as a worthy successor to the venerable D14."
The NH-D15 will include many refinements over it's predecessor, it will include Noctua's new NF-A15 fans and a widened heat stack compared to the NH-D14 (150mm compared to the NH-D14's 140mm).The NH-D15 will also offer much greater ram support, thanks to it's recessed lower fins.
The NH-D15 will still offer many of the things we are used to, like low-Noise fan adaptors for quieter operation, Noctua's famous SecuFirm2 mounting solution and their NT-H1 thermal compound. Top that off with a 6 year manufacturers warranty, the NH-D15 forms a complete premium quality air cooling solution that will please overclockers and silence-freaks alike.
The NH-D15 will be available by mid-April at suggested retail prices of EUR 89.90 / USD 99.90.
Now the question on everybody's mind should be; "How will this compete with AIO watercoolers like the H100i?". I have no doubt that TTL and other reviewers will get their hands on this Beautiful piece of engineering soon, there we will get our answer.
