FYI. Nan's Gaming Gear is back online. However, with shipping, it's cheaper to order from Newegg or Amazon (and, after recent foul-ups by Amazon and their new delivery service, I no longer trust Amazon for anything other than e-books).

Got myself this amazing Noctua NH-D15 CPU cooler.
Idle temps: 29-31 C on my Intel i7 4790K 4GHz CPU with ambient temp of 25 C.



I left with about 1cm of clearance between the cooler and my GTX 980 Ti G1 GAMING GPU (my mobo is ASUS Z97-DELUXE).
Fits perfectly, although I had to move the front fan aside a little bit so it won't interfere with the RAM (I'm using the G.Skill RipJaw X RAM).

Ever since I started using 140mm push fans I've gone with nothing but low profile RAM.

I don't know what you consider 'low profile', but to me 'low profile' is RAM that is shorter than RAM clips .. at least not taller than they are. biggrin.gif
RAM with no heatsinks and about 30mm tall is just normal height RAM.

Hello everyone.

May I join your club as well? Last week my H110i GT's pump failed, and after prowling the internet doyll pointed me to overclock.net, his guides and at some proper air coolers.

I must say, I am more than happy with the results. My NH D15S coupled with the Enthoo Luxe is great. The NZXT H440 was such a hotbox, and because the fans had to run at ridiculously high RPMs to get air through, was also noisy compared to my Luxe.

Some images of my newly rebuilt system.






Also temps under AIDA64 at stock speeds.


Max temps with an overlock.

Don't get me wrong, I do love Corsair's products but I've heard from people that after some time they're started to had some problems with these pre-filled liquid coolers, especially the pump problems (noise, failure etc..).

On reddit alone there were several people that recently had their Corsair pumps die, one thread in particular about another chap also moving to the D15 had a few people in it.

The other forum I frequent had 3 people including myself have their Corsair pumps die. Seems to be rather common.

I do like their keyboards though, really nice mechanical ones, and RAM; however I'll be avoiding their cooling products in the future.

even if pump doesn't die prematurely, all AIOs have limited life span and need replacing about every 5 years anyway because of degradation. there is ALWAYS a risk of getting a leak too.

what's the worst that can happen to NH-D15? fan might die and you just replace it, that's about it.

It's not all AIOs (All in Ones) that are the problem, It's only the CLCs (Closed Loop Cooling) .. originally called LCLC (Low Cost Liquid Cooling) that are the problem.

AIO includes many coolers. While most are CLCs, there are a few AIOs that are not CLCs. These include Swiftech and EK Predator .. which are basically pre-assembled and filled liquid cooler kits. These AIOs are much better quality and are not hermetically sealed disposable liquid coolers.

Liquid cooling is like gloves. Some are very very expensive and last a long long time (custom loops), some are reasonably priced last about the same but don't look quite as nice (pre-assembled ready to use (AIO like Swiftech & EK), and some are cheap and almost as disposible as latex glues (CLCs) biggrin.gif

Can anyone tell me if seeing temperature variations up to 15 degrees is normal. This is on an E5-2670 on a Rampage IV motherboard. I even redid the thermal paste application and used the nf-a15 on my Noctua NH-D15S and I am seeing the same temperature variation. The hottest core goes up to about 70 degrees while the coolest 4 cores are around 54-57ish approximately in degrees. What's also strange is that cores 1-4 are the coolest and cores 5-8 are the hottest. When I did my thermal paste application i did a 5mm (approximately) bead using Arctic MX-4.
