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 cooler 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 and Noctua’s proven NT-H1 thermal compound, the NH-D15 forms a complete premium quality solution that represents a deluxe choice for overclockers and silent-enthusiasts alike.
6 heatpipe dual tower design
As compared to conventional single tower heatinks, the NH-D15's fine-tuned six heatpipe dual tower design provides more surface area, better heat-distribution and superior airflow efficiency in dual fan mode.
High RAM compatibility in single fan mode
Thanks to its recessed lower fins, the NH-D15 provides 64mm clearance for tall memory heatsinks in single fan mode, making it compatible with most high end RAM modules on the market. In dual fan mode, the NH-D15 should be used with standard height RAM (up to 32mm).
SecuFirm2 mounting system
Noctua's SecuFirm2 mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety and ease of use. Supporting Intel LGA115x (LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156), LGA2011, LGA2066 and AMD (AM3(+), AM2(+), FM1, FM2(+)), the SecuFirm2 mounting included with the NH-D15 ensures perfect contact pressure and maximum convenience on all current sockets.
Dual NF-A15 140mm fans
The NH-D15 features two of Noctua's premium class NF-A15 140mm fans. Complying with Noctua's AAO standard and featuring sophisticated aerodynamic design measures such as Flow Acceleration Channels, the NF-A15 has quickly built up a reputation as one of the best 140mm fans on the market.

After lots of research I decided a Noctua cooler was going to be the next upgrade for my PC. Having never purchased a Noctua cooler before I didnt know what to expect. My research reading reviews and watching videos gave me a good idea though and the quality looked top notch. So once I made the decision I just had to decide on a compatible model for my motherboard and CPU socket. I went to Noctua's site and saw the compatibility for my Gigabyte Z97X UD5H Black Edition board. Clears the ram channels with ease. So I ordered it.
Arrival: So when I got the package from Amazon, I dont think I had a proper appreciation for just how large this thing is. I wondered what I had gotten myself into when I opened it up. The packaging from Noctua is top notch. All the components are individually encased and the total contents is surrounded by foam. The company has taken great care to ensure your purchase arrives in pristine condition.
I unboxed all the components. Looked at the instructions for my chipset 1150 and began breaking down my old cooler. Truth be told it took longer to get the H60 off my system than it did to get the NH-D15 installed. The instructions are precise and clearly written so its easy to understand. They depict two ways to orient the radiating tower so you can decide the best approach for your case and hardware. The brackets are well made and all metal. No plastic there so you can be assured that this will not flex on your board or chipset. It will have a firm back plate to secure to. I moved the fans to the left on mine so that I didnt encroach on any wiring and possibly nick a cable later breaking a fan blade.
Once I fired up my PC I was blown away. I have never heard a silent computer before. Yet there it was. Up and running and not even a whisper of sound out of anything, not the GPU, not the CPU, and not my SSD's. It almost gave me cause for alarm. I had to look inside and make sure everything was actually running. I have been doing computer builds for 16 years and as a sysadmin I have never experienced something so whisper quiet.
Performance: Where the rubber meets the road... what I bought it for after all. So my first test to see how it would perform was with Autodesk 3DS Max. I fired up one of my render scenes. Previously running a HD render of a simulated model would make the H60 scream. I fired off my first render and watched the temps and kept an ear out for increase in sound and cooler load to the fans. The fans never made a peep, if they increased in RPM and demand they certainly didnt let me know about it.
Temps for my system:
Upon boot after installation and a few hours of breaking in -
Idle Min - 18C
Max Temp: 57C (During Render at Max CPU usage)
Average Temp: 20C
Those temps looked great so I went on to do some gaming. I started with GTA-V
Startup took under a minute and loading about as long. I swapped my games over to a dedicated SSD earlier in the week. Max temp during GTA-V at max settings. 48C. My GPU runs 20C hotter than the CPU. If I could get NOCTUA to make me a GPU cooler I would do it in a heartbeat. The performance is just unreal.
If your case and board can support this cooler I recommend it. I dont think there is anything better on the air cooler market. The quality, design, ease of installation, and performance are a perfect 5 across the board in my book. When I build my next rig the cooler will be a Noctua without question.
The cooler itself is of great built. The installation was straight forward and super easy. Even easier than the Noctua C14 I used before. The cooling is also top notch. Using silent PWM profile from the Motherboard I had I can keep my 4.2GHz 5820K cool with merely a 240RPM. The cooler may have some fitment issues with tall RAM heatspreader. All you need to do is raise the front fan up several fins to clear it out. Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase.
Well I guess the only con is the price. It is really expensive for an air cooler.
These results are based on using AMD's FX 9590 processor that runs at 220 watts.
My former Cooler was a Cooler Master Hyper D92
It's average CPU temperature was : 125 to 130 degrees F.
Under load CPU temperature: Up to 170 degrees and automatic shutdown
The Noctua NH-D15 cooler results are as follows:
Avg. CPU temperature: 92 to 98 degrees F.
Underload CPU temperature measures: 125 to 130 F.
Currently - 105.8 F. while on internet chrome browser and playing Diablo 3.
Attached is a picture of the Noctua Cooler installed in a Thermotake case.
My earlier review posted review was as follows:
Absolutely incredible cooler. The quality is first rate. It keeps my AMD FX 9590
processor temps down to 115 to 120°F when gaming, It's a big cooler. You need to make sure
that you have a computer case that wide enough to fit it in.
Had Corsair Hydro H105 before but the pump was making very strong clicking noises when working at 100% and the fans was pretty noisy too.
If you are thinking buying between water cooling and this one, definitely buy this on, you wont be disappointed.
Also fits perfectly in Corsair Carbide SPEC-02 Case with ASUS X99-A Motherboard.
EDIT: Received the kit, even though it took awhile, changed my rating
