The NH-D15 is an all-black version of Noctua’s award-winning flagship model NH-D15 premium-quality quiet CPU cooler. Thanks to the same proven dual-tower heatsink design and NF-A15 PWM fans, it stays true to the NH-D15’s successful formula of rivalling the performance of all-in-one water coolers while maintaining superb quietness of operation. At the same time, the version with its black fans and black coated heatsink combines these assets with a sleek stealth look. Topped off with the renowned SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system, Noctua’s enthusiast-grade NT-H1 thermal compound and a full 6-year manufacturer’s warranty, the NH-D15 is a deluxe choice for both overclockers and silent enthusiasts who seek an elite-class heatsink that looks just as great as it cools.

Award-winning NH-D15 cooler
Tens of thousands of enthusiast users all over the world swear by the NH-D15’s quality and performance. Recommended by more than 200 international hardware websites and magazines, it is renowned for being one of the best high-end coolers on the market. design
The NH-D15 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.

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-D15 can be fully customised to fit popular build colour schemes such as black and red or black and white.

6 heatpipe dual tower design
As compared to conventional single tower heatsinks, the NH-D15's fine-tuned six heatpipe dual tower design provides more surface area, better heat-distribution and superior airflow efficiency in dual fan mode.

Widened fin stack and expanded heatpipe layout
Compared to the NH-D14, the NH-D15's fin-stack has been widened from 140 to 150mm and its heatpipes are now spaced further apart, which allows for a more uniform heat distribution over a larger surface area and thus contributes to the NH-D15's superior efficiency.

High RAM compatibility in single fan mode
Thanks to its recessed lower fins, the NH-D15 provides 64mm clearance for tall memory heatsinks in single fan mode, making it compatible with most high end RAM modules on the market. In dual fan mode, the NH-D15 should be used with standard height RAM (up to 32mm).

Dual NF-A15 140mm fans
The NH-D15 features two of Noctua's premium class NF-A15 140mm fans. 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.

PWM support and Low-Noise Adaptors
The NF-A15 premium fans supplied with the NH-D15 support 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 Adaptors for even quieter operation.

Keeps my 5800x3d cool
December 13th 2023 Verified user
I had a smaller 1 tower Noctua NH-U12S cooler before, I always hit 90c running at full speed and full utilization and lost 200Mhz in boost when the CPU got too hot.

Now I am at 70-80c and the CPU wont clock down anymore to cool itself down, as expected the cooler is very silent even with both fans running at full speed. Most of the time the fans wont spin to 100% even in games, you get 100% fan speed mostly only in benchmarks only.

Installation was easy as always with Noctua and everything needed was provided with the set for my Am4 CPU (screws, cooler holder, Y-cable for power to use 2 fans on 1 connector, screwdriver, cooling paste). It is a very large/big cooler and covers all at the top of the main-board now including RAM and the NVME, is fine as it also takes away heat now from those components pushing the warm air out my case.

It is a tight fit in my case, which is pretty large but make sure you can fit the cooler, in terms on height there is no issue closing the case as it is not taller than other tower coolers.
