Noctua NH-D15 Club - Page 35

Keep in mind that 3mm (RAM socket), RAM and fan must be less than the CPU clearance plus 8mm.
Or:
RAM + fan is less than CPU clearance + 5mm. thumb.gif

If you need anything else, just ask.

look into it only need to raise the fan to clear the ram, the rest all look good

i'm thinkingas well U14S with dual fan, cost about the same as D15 after adding 2nd fan and performance a few degree off but less bulky

Most of us don't notice a couple of degrees difference in top level coolers. We rarely use them at or near their cooling limits in everyday life .. even with CPU intensive applications.

Seems like Amazon is being awesome and sending the parts FedEx 2day, even with Prime living in Hawaii they just give me free standard shipping so I get stuff in 5-7 days. Surprised they did it with my case too, that would likely cost $60-70 otherwise.

I actually bought a "Used - Like New" NH-D15 from Amazon and while Amazon says the manufacturer's warranty is void with used products I contacted Noctua and they said it's still covered. Guess I jumped the gun a little bit as Newegg is out of stock and Amazon didn't have any that qualified from Prime minus that used one. Looks like today they added NH-D15s that qualify for Prime but won't be available until the 16th which is the day I will get my used, still covered by warranty, cheaper one! thumb.gif

Also, sucks I decided to buy an anti-static wristband in the same order and they decided to ship that through Parcel Pool so it'll get to me next monday.. yeah I'm not waiting 5 days for it. I just wanted to be safe as it'll be my first build, I've done lots of work on my computer without one before so I know to touch the case etc often but damn, ah well. Too lazy to send it back so I'll just keep it for later.

im considering to buy one of this bad boys for a future rig that will contain this specs:

i7 4930k
asus rampage iv black edition
gskill ripjaws z 16gb 2133 c9

im wondering what temps should i expect for a 24/7 overclock of 4.6ghz on this 4930k...

and also, considering to upgrade from a NH-D14 with NF-F12 and NF-A15 on a FX8350... im @4.8ghz with 1.4628v (vcore) and 1.30v on CPU/NB without power saving features, it idles on 20ºC and tops on 55ºC... if i upgrade the cooler, will i get better temps, or should i stick with my D14...?

I have the D14, but never installed it.. I even have the H100i that I never re-installed after the pump failed and I got a new one. I'm currently running my 3770k bone stock with speedstep turned on..and running 6 monitors..

The D14 is huge, and the D15 is even bigger.. The H100i is smaller @ the CPU but bigger with the radiator..

They have to try make a smaller cooler with the same characteristics...

somehow.. wink.gif

Nice thread..

I have to modify my info below.. its been some time... wink.gif Done.
