Sounds like I'll be doing some cooking! Lol, found 2 home recipe's that might do the trick:

1: Lemon + few grains of salt (might be too abrasive tho)
2: a mix of
1/4 cup cream of tartar
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup baking soda
2 tablespoons soap flakes/dish washing liquid

Good luck to me ! Hahaha biggrin.gif

Well I just switched to the Bitphenix Prodigy from the ML08 mitx, so It was time to actually cool the CPU properly. Moved to the 7700k.

Its really big, but I squeezed in the NH-D15!

Hi,

I wonder if someone tried to put the new NH-D15S in ASUS P5Q Deluxe? s775.. I would like to buy it but dont know if will fit without blocking the mobo heatsinks and 1th PCI-Express 1x slot, noctua support couldnt say 100%, has anybody tried to pair them?

Oh why not, here's a photo of my build with the NH D15 smile.gif


And as it was all being assembled

Nicely done @eclap
I like your build bench. All the important 'tools' within easy reach .. from water to Disaronno. biggrin.gif

Would you guys say a third A15 fan is worth it for the D15?

In a word, no.
The A15 fans on coolers are 1500rpm, the ones you can buy are 1200rpm. wink.gif.

In a word, yes -- but only if you plan to run your fans at low speed. Otherwise it is as doyll says: no benefit. Of course, it helps if you mod your case to provide a rear window instead of a rear "grill." That way you would run with no exhaust fan. It's a quietness thing. See items 2 and 7 in my sig.

I did not pay attention to that part at all. Well, how about this fan?
http://noctua.at/en/nf-p14s-redux-1500-pwm/specification

It is Noctua, 140mm and it is 1500RPM.

As a square frame it does not fit on the Noctua heatsinks. Round frame 140mm fans do fit on the NH-D15/NH-D15S and the NH-D14 as a pull fan. Again, you can put three fans on there to get low fan speeds. But putting three 1500 rpm fans on it won't improve the cooling. It's already maxed out with two 1500 rpm fans on it.

 

Recently I put three PWM fans on a Scythe Fuma. The point was to let the fans keep their speeds low. That way my daughter's rig is very quiet. The Fuma is a fine heatsink but three fans on it cool no better than two -- the third fan just allows all of them to run slowly.
