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.

Q: Hi can I use Liquid Ultra with this cooler?
Answer by Website User on 13th April 2015
I'm not familiar with that thermal paste but it should work with any cooler so should be fine. -Danlevan
0 customers found this answer helpful.
Answer by Website User on 9th May 2015
Should be ok. better ask the manufacturer to be 100% sure, but it looks like the base is nickel plated copper. The fins, however, are aluminium. Gallium-based TIMs interdiffuse in aluminium, destroying it.

Answer by Website User on 16th March 2015
This cooler will be fine with your case and motherboard, it is a very large cooler though and will sit over the memory slots so you will want low profile memory. -Danlevan

Not cheap but great products

Best on the market.

a few more characters as it needs to be 10.

February 2021

Very quiet and easy to install. Temps are low on full load but I have not done any overlocking yet.


February 2021

Make it sure it fits with your RAM as it may be too big so you only can use one fan. Comes well packaged and super easy to set up


February 2021

Good fan though though

robert clay

December 2020

cracking bit of kit, but make sure you got the case space to handle this thing, i mean its approx a stick of ram cubed! you will likely want low profile ram sticks if you intend to stick both the fans onto this beast!


August 2020

Works really well even without the additional fan


July 2020



June 2020

Having not built a PC for many years I was clueless how the new socket types work. ZIF sockets were barely a thing last time I built a PC so you still had to crowbar the cooler onto the CPU. When I opened this cooler I was very surprised and more than a little intimidated by its size and the process of installing it, but the instructions were pretty good and I got it installed with a minimum of stress. I use this in a recording studio and the cooler is basically silent. The CPU fan very rarely kicks in and when it does you only know by looking at it. One thing to note is that you have to be careful of the orientation of the cooler if you want a GPU in the top PCI-e slot as the cooler is not square and will block the top slot if it is oriented so it is taller than it is wide. I was sceptical about the price of this cooler but I bought it because it was recommended. The cost is more than justified, this thing is a work of art.


June 2020

awesome, just awesome


May 2020

One of the best coolers you can buy the only downside is colour.


April 2020

Keeps my i7 cool and It is very quiet

John Chandler

This is the second PC i've built with the NH-D15 Dual Fan, Dual Radiator arrangement. If you're thinking about getting this, you won't regret it. The Best Cooler around, and so easy to fit. Comes with excellent Heatsink Compound too. Just remember to check the Cooler will fit your case. Mine is the Corsair 450D Obsidian.


November 2019

This is arguably the best *air* CPU cooler you can buy. It is pretty big with the 140mm fans, but in return, you get a much quiet cooler. I easily overclocked my 3.3GHz spec cpu to 4.5GHz using this cooler without trying too hard.. Alright, my i5-2500k might have been a "good un" but the previous aftermarket Corsair only managed 4GHz overclock. People complained about the colour, but come-on guys, this is ridiculous fashion consciousness.Your fellow geeks might be aware of the latest in colour trends, but no-one else care sweet FA about the colour of your cooler fans!

James Howlett

October 2019

Simply the best air cooler you can buy, if it fits in your case. Superb cooling and quality, you get what you pay for.


August 2019

Super quiet, easy to understand instructions. Best air cooler around.


May 2019

Best air cooler on the market - I've got a 9900k running at 5.1GHz all cores, and under load it barely hits 70C. During normal use on my audio workstation, it's effectively silent. It is expensive for air cooling, but it matches/outperforms AIOs that cost more, so it's still decent value long term.


November 2018

It is a good, reliable fan. There are minor noises when starting up, but that might be just the case of a dodgy installation.
