Noctua NH-D15 D-Type Premium CPU Cooler Review  - FrostyTech.com Noctua NH-D15 D-Type Premium CPU Cooler Review
Tue Jul 22, 2014 | 2:28P| PermaLink
Noctua are one of the best CPU cooler manufacturers around, their CPU coolers have pushed air cooling to new highs over the last few years and most importantly, their NH-D14 was and still is one of the best on the market. The rule generally goes that if something isn’t broken, it doesn’t need fixing, but the NH-D14 is getting a little older now and the competition from companies like be quiet! and Thermaltake (to name but a few) means that Noctua have to do something to stay relevant. The NH-D15 is based on the NH-D14 design, but brings with a it a few tweaks and improvements that Noctua hope will help them compete with many of the newer rival products. Noctua are a premium brand, and as a consequence, their products are often quite expensive. Price around £75 the NH-D15 costs about the same as most mid range AIO water coolers, many of which offer some pretty incredible performance figures in terms of CPU cooling and overall acoustic performance, so there is no doubt in my mind that the NH-D15 has got its work cut out. That being said, there may be a lot of benefits to water cooling, but the same is true of air cooling, not forgetting that fact that there are still those loyal to air cooling, or that are too afraid to dabble with liquid cooling. On top of all that, not all chassis have room for a radiator, so it will be very interesting indeed to see how the NH-D15 stacks up against its air and water cooled rivals, especially within such a premium price bracket.
