Very similar performance to PH-TC14PE even though NH-D15 uses 1500rpm 82.52cfm NF-A15 Premium fans compared to first generation PH-TC14PE using 1300rpm 78.1cfm PH-F140TS fans. Current PH-TC14PE coolers come with 1300rpm 88.6cfm PH-F140HP fans. Assuming this review is accurate, with improved PH-F140HP fans now used on PH-TC14PE, it should easily be equal to, maybe even slightly better than NH-D15.

I added the review to the list. thumb.gif

Just what I thought, it's only a few Celsius better than the NH-D14 under load. I would still like to see some reviews from more popular websites before deciding if it's worth upgrading.

I will be surprised if there is even 2-3c difference between NH-D14 & NH-D15 using same fans.

Yeah, the differences in temp between them is very little. I just had high hopes for the D15 and now I'm disappointed to see it's only 2-3c better. Hopefully the D15 will force the D14 to come down on price and I think it'd be cheaper to get a NH-D14 and just buy two NF-A15s instead.

Why does the Noctua U14s have lower temps than the 14D, lol. (In the review)

Its single fan is great and comparing the amount of metal in the two coolers, there's not that big a difference and both have six heat-pipes. They might also have learned about something smart to do for the U14S design or its manufacturing in the years between D14 release and U14S release.

Still seems insane that a little cooler like that is beating my huge D14.

The U14S is much better than the D14 for a variety of reasons. It has more fins and way better fan. You can see the review here that talks about fins and fin thickness etc.

Physical measurements are fine and good, but when it's all said and done and they fired up their test systgem the D14was 2c better than U14S w/ 2 fans and 6c better than U14S with single fan.

@doyll

That's true but in my opinion the U14S is the winner for one major reason. Keep this in mind, the D14 is a dual tower while the U14S is a single tower cooler that has the same performance as the D14 while being significantly smaller and weighing less. It's smarter to buy a second fan for the U14S than buy that monster of D14 that takes up too much space. I'd take the size of the U14S over the size of the D14 just because of the size and weight.
