3.0 out of 5 stars why noctua? WHY?
Reviewed in the United States on 17 December 2019
so i have been a lifelong fan of noctua fans. i use them almost exclusively in every build i put together.

so when they finally came out with a black version of the world famous nh-d15, i immediately jumped on it and ordered one.

sadly... the photos of the product were either photoshopped, or were pre-production models. there is one GLARING oversight on noctuas part that completely ruins the look (which you are paying a premium for) of this amazing heatsink. on this all black cpu cooler... they printed the serial numbers for the fans on the very top.

the cable for each fan is on the opposite side of the serial, and there is no way to turn them 90 degrees. so you have a choice of either staring at a bright white serial number on each fan, which looks horribly out of place - or looking at a cable dangling loosely from the top of the fan.

i contacted noctua about this, and was told "Indeed this isn't the way it is supposed to be and we've changed it for future batches." - which doesnt help me now at all. they appear to be unwilling to swap the misprints... so you are either going to have to live with it, or return it.

very disappointed.

as for performance: its an nh-d15 - it is literally the best air cooler on the market, blowing away almost every all in one liquid cooler in thermals.

3.0 out of 5 stars SEXY! Until I turned it on...
Reviewed in the United States on 11 October 2019
First let me say, this is my first ever Noctua Cooler. I hear nothing but good things about Noctua and their coolers, and to have an all black one? YES. FINALLY. I decided to upgrade my Hyper 212 Evo to a Noctua NH-D15. Wow, this thing looks amazing. Installation is extremely easy, fans clip on nice. Looks great, turn it on and oh good lord. That is the worst sound I've ever heard come from my PC. I quickly turn it off to prevent damage of whatever was making noise. I check all the fans, maybe something was stuck in one of them, but there wasn't. The optional fan that was included seems to be rubbing on the casing of the fan itself. I'm disappointed that I can only use 1 fan on this setup, and I was really looking forward to using both for ultimate cooling. I'm going to be contacting Noctua about this, because this can't be normal. Otherwise a great looking and performing CPU cooler (I'd assume it's even better with 2 fans!)
