Noctua NH-D15 Club - Page 134

I see. I will try the third A15 just to for the sake of trying then. Eventually I do plan to go EKWB MLC AIO to improve cooling as well as makes it less clustered around CPU area. As of right now my D15 and FuryX radiator is just fighting for spaces near the rear exhaust of the case.

Hello

Looking to get one of these coolers soon. I have the Phantek Luxe and was wondering if it will fit ok? I know the height is fine but just worried about the gap between the cooler and GPU. I only have one 16x PCI-E socket on my motherboard, Gigabyte Z87-D3HP.

Thanks!

Just checked out your board. NH D15 will normally block the upper most PCI-E slot. Most boards have the PCI-E x16 slots one down from that.

On your board, you have fan connectors in place of the uuper most PCI-E slot, the PCI-E x16 slot is the one down from it so yes, the cooler will fit perfectly fine.

No worries, have fun with it, it's a great cooler and a joy to work with.

BTW, confirmed on the official website, your board is fully compatible with the NH D15


EDIT: Damn, I managed to highlight the DS3H, instead of the D3HP but as you can see, the D3HP is fully compatible too.

On your GA-Z87-D3HP you have about 93mm center cpu toward 1st x16 PCIe socket so no worrys about D15 fitting. Even the fan connectors are about 77mm from center CPU and D15 is 75mm. Phanteks Luxe 193mm CPU clearance so no problems there either. What fans does your Luxe have? Reason I ask is some came with a 200mm front fan and it is not much good.

I replaced the 200mm with two 140mm Vipers.

You will be fine. While Vipers are not my first choice, they are not bad.

What would be your first choice? Out of interest.
post #1340 of 1356
I probably should have said choices .. PH-F140MP for Phanteks, NF-A14, TY-147A SQ to name a few. Much depends on where you live and what is available. I bought a bunch of TY-147A SQ for £12 each, PH-F140MP are £12.95, NF-A14 are £18.23 and NF-A14 iPPC are £20.99. Probably my all time favorite was TY-140 (same as TY-147A but idled at 600rpm instead of 300rpm and were fugly colors) for £5.00 each.

NF-A14 / A14 iPPC and TY-140 / 147 / 147A / 143 al perform the same at same rpm with similar sounds .. so does PH-
F140MP.
