Noctua NH-D15 CPU Cooler Review
Recently we have seen smaller designs from Noctua that take into consideration smaller systems and RAM clearance. Well Noctua is going back to their roots with the new NH-D15 CPU cooler. This massive CPU cooler is based on the award winning NH-D14 and features a dual-tower design with 6 copper heatpipes, two Noctua NF-A15 140 mm fans and Noctua’s SecuFirm2 mounting system for easy installation

Is this PC build fit for Linux?
I would recommend you use a big Aircooler instead, like EKL Alpenföhn Brocken 3, Noctua NH-D15 or beQuiet Dark Rock Pro 4. Something with a lot of mass. From my experiments all of there easily outperform a 240 AiO Watercooler.
Noctua Shows Off Updated 'D Series' 140mm CPU Coolers: NH-D15 Gets A Successor
The new cooler features seven heat pipes – up from the traditional six of the previous NH-D15 models – and the heatsink itself has been tweaked to offer 10% more surface area for heat dissipation than previous models. One of the most interesting aspects is that Noctua revealed that the new D series coolers are designed to dissipate up to 400 W of heat, which makes them highly suitable for beefier sockets such as AMD's TR4 and SP3.

[Cooler] Corsair A500 $29.99 ($49.99-$20 MIR)
Corsair A500 at $100, rather get the Noctua NH-D15.
At 29.99, it's a very good value for a supposedly high end cooler that dropped to very low price. So very good value.
Noctua NH-D15 Review - Latest in Tech
The Noctua NH-D15 is one excellent cooler. It’s more efficient compared to its competitors and takes cooling to a whole new level. Plus, despite the heavy loads we put it through, it remained quiet, and that was excellent

[CPU] Intel Core i9-12900K -$599.99
Noctua NH-D15 works awesome on this CPU. No need for AIO - I had a 8700k - NH-D15, and upgraded to the 12900k - NH-D15.. I probably wont do an AIO again.
Anyway - air cooling is the way to go and its quiet.
Noctua NH-D15 Review
The Noctua NH-D15 is currently the best CPU air cooler that we have in our lab and it was able to beat all of the premium CPU coolers with little effort. Noctua's new flagship cooler currently holds the cooling performance crown in our bench tests and it will be hard for a new cooler to retake the crown.

NOCTUA NH-D15 Review - TheOverclocker
In fact if the 6 year warranty is anything to do by, we are pretty certain that NOCTUA has nothing but confidence I not only their Heat sink but the fans as well. Not a bad thing given that this CPU cooler retails for a cool $100. Spread out over the supposed 6 year life span, it’s inexpensive for the kind of workmanship and performance it delivers as you’ll see shortly

[COOLER] Be Quite Dark Rock Pro 4 - $70 (normally $85)
I will say to start it performs phenomenally, essentially a noctua NH-D15, but my god, I saw some reviewers say it’s a pain to mount recently and when I went to move some stuff around in my case I had to reinstall it, holy fuck it’s a Royale pain in the ass. If you don’t care about the black, the extra 15-20$ for the D15 very well may be worth it for you.
Noctua NH-D15 chromax.black
For what it's worth, I certainly wasn't aiming for looks over function.Personally I saw the extra £10 over the normal cost to be the “new version premium” at the time, and as Noctua have a reputation of making quality air coolers that are great at their job (and reviews for the NH-D15 in particular placing it amongst the bset coolers you can buy), I was happy to pay the extra for the colour change (and it obviously wouldn't be the first type of product that has a price difference for different colours).Given the fact that it is still much cheaper than an AIO but still beats it, I am happy to consider my colour choice worth the extra
