Probably the best air cooler on the market these days (?). Seems to be the cheapest way to get this cooler compared to local vendors average around $150, or even Amazon US. Ships directly from Taiwan.

  • Not bad! But it’s big… biggest I could fit was Cryorig H7.

    • Yeah I bought one. Won't fit in my current case. Also the weight cannot be good for the mobo

      • +10 votes

        I've used one for over 10yrs across 3 PCs and never had any problems with the weight on the motherboard. It has a 4 way mount plate that screws onto the back of the board (where regular CPU mount points are) and then on the front you mount two wishbone brackets to further split the load and then the cooler screws into the middle of those 2 brackets.

        • Yeah that's it. I've got the d14 in my old for the last 12ish years, and I've moved that around for LANs and stuff plenty of times too.

          Current one had the d15 in it, and have had no issues got the last two years.

          They mount well and safely.

        • Yeah, they're a good mount. Just make sure you put screws in all the motherboard mounts in your case. I've seen more than a few where they just have screws in the corners which puts some extra strain on the board in the middle.

      • you probably hang a massive GPU out of your pci slot but here you are worrying about a CPU cooler with a backing plate being too heavy

        • At least the gpu screws into the case on one end

          • @Joker042: A PCI slot plate will bend before it will protect the PCIe slot. They are there to stop cards from falling out. They often are poorly fixed to the card and can shear off…

            • @This Guy: Mate if you're regularly buying $700+ graphics cards with that dodgy build quality you'll want to stop shopping on banggood.

              You can pick up cards by the screw hole and they don't crumble to dust. You can wave them around over your head. Heck, you can even screw them into a case and turn the case and the cards still won't break.

              I'm we could find a handful of posts of people having issues. Any manufacturing process has issues, but in 99.999% of cases, that mounting bracket is on for life.

              • @Joker042: GPU's are a general computer part. They are not milspec or designed to be dropped.

                Why do you think most builders will ship PC's with instapak foam?

                If your so sure about how strong these brackets are, put your money were your mouth is and upload a video of you going to town on your GPU with a rubber mallet.

                • @This Guy: Who tf is talking about dropping their graphics cards??? What are you on mate?

                  Did I talk about a rubber mallet?

                  You're showing how stupid your argument is by demanding I do shit that is nonsensical based on the statements I've made.

                  I've ignored your replies, feel free to continue to make stupid statements tho.

                    How else are you going to break a M/B with a tower cooler or a GPU? What is your point about slot plates screwing into the case? How does any of this help people decide if they want to buy a D15 (the topic)?

  • That's a good price.
    I'd keep in mind that the Nh D15 revision will occur later 2021, so these items might go cheaper over the new year.

    • Kinda need this cooler for the upcoming heat waves

    • The new fanless noctua cpu cooler is eta Feb 2021 as well

    • I got the NH-D15 for $105 back in 2014 from pccasegear. Now it's $169. This is the ti-81 of coolers

      • I got mine for $140 from a local supplier and that was in the thick of CoViD lockdowns, so not too badly priced. This is technically a grey import (comes straight from Noctua in Singapore). Great cooler though, using it on a 3950x with PBO enabled. Doesnt do so good on an all core overclock though.

  • Isn't this the same as
    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/578711
    There is also a more-expensive black one.

  • Smashing deal, these usually go for 150$+. Would have pulled the trigger immeidately only if i didn't buy a gammax ytd on amazon :(

    • Yesterday? Return it!

      • Haha I will try it out, it's a white Gammaxx I got a really good deal (40~ new) for my aesthetic build. And for some reason for once Amazon delivered it today… this morning… less than 24 hrs from ordering.

  • Can't go wrong with Noctua.

    Great company who continue to support coolers from over 10 years ago.

  • Not the NH-D15 but I'm using its older brother the D14 and it works great with a high end CPU (5900x in my case).

    • You reckon we should upgrade. Also have the NH D14

      • Nah, difference is pretty small. For reference I'm getting 30-35C idle and 70C sustained all core load on my 5900X under the D14. I haven't overclocked as I'm happy with performance but there's headroom there.

  • I thought my Lianli case was big enough for this cooler. Boy I was wrong. My side panel is only half attached the case now. Worth

  • Any advice on a suitable CPU cooler for Intel 10400f in an itx case, no overclocking?

    • Not sure how much space you've got, but after I decided today that the D15 is too big for me, I did a heap of research and ended up ordering the Mugen 5 Rev. B on Amazon for $87. It's got excellent reviews.

  • very solid price these days and genuinely an incredible cooler worth all the hype, i remember i picked up this cooler for that price when it came out but that's pre-inflation i suppose.

  • seriously swear this is the normal price from newegg, as I bought it previously for 77 usd delivered express via DHL back in May 2020.

  • Definitely a great price for an awesome cooler.

    I think NewEgg updated the price as I get the following in the order summary:

    Item(s): AUD $99.99
    Delivery: AUD $9.00
    Est. Duty & GST: AUD $10.89
    Total: $119.88

    Or should I be trying to pay with USD somehow and use my card/paypal's exchange rate instead of NewEggs?

  • why this over a AIO?

    • It cools as well as all but the best AIOs with 0 chance of leaks, no pump noise and will last for ages (Noctua fans are near unkillable and they send you converters for new sockets if you ask)

  • Check their website to see if it fits your motherboard.

    I own a NH-U12A and it kicks ass for my itx setup

  • this thing is massive. I'm going to wait for a deal on the U12A. Newegg had it for a good price until I saw $80 shipping. WTF?

  • These days, there would be many competitors to this cooler. Back in the day, not so much.

    • This is the new model that's just launched this month. Here's the techpowerup conclusion

      Setting a new bar for air-cooling performance while keeping noise to a minimum, the Noctua NH-D15 eats the competition alive. If AIO liquid coolers don't appeal to you, give the NH-D15 a good look as it doesn't disappoint.

      And here's the temperature comparisons

  • Apart from having only one fan, what is the difference between this and D15S version? My case would fit D15S only (160mm) so thinking of getting this version and keeping the extra fan for some future use.
