Noctua NH-D15 Club - Page 6

post #51 of 1544
Maybe they didn't want orders to pile up over Easter break?

Added ChipLoco's review to OP. I see that it's only a tiny bit better than the 14PE which is disappointing.

Here's another review. It seems to be 1c cooler than the Cryorig R1 Ultimate under load.

Welp, I inquired again, and I got a different result. Below is the e-mail, removing some comments on the similarities to the NH-D14. I apologize if I might have lead you astray:

Hi (BeAuMaN),

Regarding the NH-D15 it would not be sold until at least 30 days later.

The stock has not been released yet in noctua's manufacturer overseas. Top 30 days on top of it for shipping, +1 week going to Amazon's warehouse, the time would be roughly 40 days.

Until then, no one would be able to sell this unit unfortunately.
...
...

Hope this helps..

(Name Withheld)

Not sure If this is more correct than the previous person I talked to on the phone. I did inform them though what the other person had told me. Anyone else want to ask around to confirm this?

Ah, the days I lusted after heatsinks before I lusted after watercooling parts...

All of the reviews we've seen are just bad. I can't really understand how the NH-u14/12s is on par with a nh-d14/15 when there's a 10° difference in this test http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cases_cooling/noctua_nh-u14s_review/5. I couldn't keep the temps below 90° before hitting the thermtrip in small fft's with a 3930K@4.5GHz with 1.35V.

Now. I can buy one from the netherlands they have it in stock.

This shop has them in stock and ships everywhere in the EU: http://i.imgur.com/Jutg2zK.png & http://i.imgur.com/LvHgJ59.png

If a single-tower heatsink is really well made, it should keep up with the big boys until . . . until it runs out of heat-shedding power. If the U14 is as well made as other Noctua products, we should see exactly that. It is only at the higher OC's that tandem tower heatsinks really come into their own.

 

The problem comes when you have a CPU that runs up against its limits before the heatsink runs up against its own limit. My Haswell has that problem. I can get it to run stable at 4.7 GHz. But when I crank up AVX2, the core temps skyrocket in seconds, no matter which cooler I use. There is a gap between the cpu's silicon chip and the IHS, and the TIM is not good enough to bridge it.

 

I have not seen any reviews where the U14 and any of the tandem towers (D14, D15, Phanteks, Silver Arrow, etc etc) have been tested on 2011 cpu's like the Ivy Bridge - E, where there is not TIM but solder. Only there will you see the tandem tower heatsinks really show their stuff.

 

If the Devils Canyon Haswell refresh has solder instead of TIM, I will get one. Otherwise, we can wait for the Haswell-E that comes out later this year and hope that someone does a heatsink comparison using it.

 

I am not impressed with the current reviews I have seen. I am willing to look at some more, if they have cpu's that fully tax the heatsinks.

You won't really expect me to link Haswell/Ivy bridge benchmarks. The oc3d link I posted tested a 3930K@1.35V so. Anyone who buys a nh-d14/d15 for Haswell/Ivy is doing it wrong unless you want to fill the empty space in your case up.

Their singletower coolers are impressive, literally the best out and honestly it destroys any 120mm AIO, my enermax 120x (silverstone oem TD02) isn't doing better.

Half of them don't even know how to apply thermal paste properly. Spreading it out, doing line method or using way too much. This is how much you really need for S2011: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_pC7fdhet5qA/TUOwll2SXUI/AAAAAAAAA_M/PdkYX0EUBsw/s1600/dollop.jpg

They still fail to pick the right cpu out, it's so stupid to use haswell cpu's

Well, looking at a list of .nl sites, this one seems to ship abroad (Read: United States), but you'll pay a premium for it: http://www.alternate.nl/html/product/information/page.html?articleId=1136477&channel_code=57&product_code=92580632&utm_source=hardware

Also this place in the UK: http://www.quietpc.com/nh-d15

Noctua said the D15 will be available by mid April but I guess not. I think we're looking at early May now.
