Award-winning NH-U9S cooler

Award-winning NH-D15S cooler
Tens of thousands of enthusiast users all over the world swear by the NH-D15S’s quality and performance.
Recommended by more than 150 international hardware websites and magazines, it is renowned for its unique blend of dual-tower performance and excellent compatibility.

 

chromax.black design

chromax.black design
The NH-D15S chromax.black is black from head to toe: featuring a black coated heatsink, black fans with black anti-vibration-pads, black fan clips and black mounting parts, it’s right at home in all-black builds and easy to integrate with other colour schemes.

 

Colour-customisable

Colour-customisable
Using the optional NA-HC3 and NA-HC4 heatsink covers as well as the NA-SAVP3 anti-vibration pads (available in black, blue, green, red, yellow, white), the NH-D15S chromax.black can be fully customised to fit popular build colour schemes such as black and red or black and white.

 

High-compatibility version of NH-D15

High-compatibility version of NH-D15
Compared to the award-winning NH-D15, the S-version uses an off-set, asymmetrical layout and a single instead of dual NF-A15 fans.
This allows the NH-D15S to provide state-of-the-art heatsink performance while maintaining superior RAM and PCIe compatibility.

 

100% RAM compatibility


Excellent RAM compatibility
Thanks to its recessed lower fins, the NH-D15S provides 65mm clearance for RAM with tall heatspreaders or RGB illumination, making it compatible with most high-end modules on the market.
As the lower fins are recessed on both sides of the heatsink, compatibility is excellent not only on LGA115x and AMD, but also on LGA20xx where there are RAM slots on both sides of the socket.

 

100% compatibility with PCIe cards on mini-ITX

Asymmetrical layout for better PCIe compatibility
As many current motherboards have the top PCIe x16 slot sitting close to the socket, bigger heatsinks tend to block it. Due to its asymmetrical layout, the fin-stack of the NH-D15S is off-set towards the upper edge of the motherboard when installed in standard orientation. This allows it to clear the top PCIe x16 slot on most current µATX and ATX motherboards.*

 

NF-A15 140mm fan

NF-A15 140mm fan
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.

 

Dual fan ready

Dual fan ready
Using the supplied extra fan clips, the NH-D15S can be upgraded with either a second round-frame 140mm fan with 120mm mounting holes (such as the NF-A15) for maximum performance or a common 120mm fan (such as the NF-F12) for improving performance while maintaining compatibility with RAM modules of up to 45mm height.

 

PWM support and Low-Noise Adaptor

PWM support and Low-Noise Adaptor
The NF-A15 premium fan supplied with the NH-D15S supports PWM for convenient automatic speed control through the motherboard.
In addition, the maximum fan speed can be reduced from 1500 to 1200rpm using the supplied Low-Noise Adaptor for even quieter operation.

 

Excellent component cooling

Excellent component cooling
Extending below the fin-stacks, the large NF-A15 fan not only contributes to the superb CPU cooling capabilities of the NH-D15S but also provides massive airflow over surrounding motherboard components and heatsinks, thus ensuring excellent component cooling performance.

 

SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system


SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system
Noctua’s SecuFirm2™ mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety and easy installation.
Supporting Intel LGA115x (LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156), LGA1200 and LGA20xx (LGA2066, LGA2011-0, LGA2011-3), as well as AMD AM4, AM3(+), AM2(+), FM2(+) and FM1, the SecuFirm2™ mounting included with the NH-D15S is straightforward to install, provides perfect contact pressure and will stand the test of time even under heavy use.

 

Compatibility with past and future sockets

Compatibility with past and future sockets
Thanks to Noctua’s SecuFirm™ ecosystem, the NH-D15S can be made compatible with the older LGA1366 and LGA775 sockets using the optional NM-I3 mounting kit, which is provided free of charge. If technically possible, Noctua will also provide upgrade kits for future sockets, which makes the NH-D15S a safe long-term investment.

 

NT-H1 thermal compound

NT-H1 thermal compound
Noctua’s much-acclaimed NT-H1 is a pro-grade TIM solution that provides minimum thermal resistance, excellent ease of use and outstanding reliability.
Chosen again and again by overclockers and enthusiast users worldwide, it has established itself as a benchmark for premium-quality thermal compounds.

 

Soldered interface between heatpipes and fins


Soldered interface between heatpipes and fins
With many heatsinks, the fins are press-fitted to the heatpipes. Due to the different thermal expansion coefficients of copper and aluminium, this fit can loosen over years of thermal cycling, which may lead to reduced performance.
By contrast, the NH-D15S’s fins are soldered to the heatpipes in order to guarantee a superior thermal interface that doesn’t deteriorate even after many years of usage.

 

6-year manufacturer’s warranty

6-year manufacturer’s warranty
Noctua products are renowned for their impeccable quality and outstanding longevity.
Like all Noctua fans, the supplied NF-A15 features an MTTF rating of more than 150,000 hours and the entire NH-D15S package comes with a full 6-year manufacturer’s warranty.
