I really hate when people make all CLC's sound terrible. You guys forget the TWO MAJOR ITEMS that CLC's have over standard heatsink-fan coolers.
  1. They can pull in a fresh air supply from outside the case (ambient temperature)
  2. They take up less space around CPU socket, allowing you to work easily.



Air coolers have a couple of huge advantages, too.
  1. Less moving parts (more reliable)
  2. Less expensive.



So lets not turn this into a CLC vs Air argument. Lets talk about this cooler in the OP, because it looks like a really good air cooler. thumb.gif

The NH-D15 is almost the same price as my H220-X.

Noctua stuff is overpriced for the performance, for some people, they dont mind paying the extra for the quality of the product and support.

For those who want something cheaper, there's several dual towers that perform within a couple of degrees for cheaper then the NH-D 15, and theyre mainly behind in tests because the NHD-15 is using slightly higher RPM fans then most of the other towers.

This new Alpenfohn might even outperform the NHD-15 at 79 euros, I'm hoping someone like Tweaktown or TPU gets hold of one soon. smile.gif

Considering how close this thing is to the NH-D14 and Phanteks PH-TC14PE it is definitely overpriced and I'd rather get the Phanteks. But I am really pleased with my cooler, it's seriously sexy.

The NHD15 is a bit quieter then most of the others as well as far as I know, and I understand Noctua are really good at sending mounting kits for new sockets and support as well, I suppose thats included in the price.

How does it do on your FX8? Did you have to back off a little on the overclock compared to the Swiftech? Assuming youre using it on the same rig in your sig, of course.

I am using the H220-X to cool this power hungry FX (4.5 at 1.48V).

 

Before this I had an H70 that was equal to an IFX-14 or TRUE 120 Copper. That H70 was a total waste of money, I should have kept that IFX-14 or the TRUE.

I havent been in the game long enough to have seen that IFX 14 before although Ive seen the True copper before, that extra heatsink for the VRM's I assume? Interesting idea.

120mm mounting so a pair of San Ace 9CR1212P0G03 would work :D

Weight is a complete non-issue unless you are frequently moving the setup and/or letting it get banged around.

Most heatsinks capable of disipating anywhere near the heat of the AIO I'm using in my primary system will push on the back of my top GPU and make swapping memory difficult.

Mounting this beast on VRM's would be very interesting :D

 

This thing is the only socket cooler I've ever seen and it was placed on the back of the board.

Whether it worked or not is another question but it certainly did ad extra work to mounting the board. I wish I'd kept it, I could have done with it now.

Yea I read my post back and I see how it could be construed I was suggesting the TRUE on the VRM's my bad tongue.gif Guess AMD guys might appreciate trying a dedicated socket heatsink, I dont know how the hell you'd fit that in a standard case though.
