Edited, sorry about that, yea i'm using a 120 and 140 version of the fan.

I just reused the existing brackets and bent them to fit, but yes, you can get proper brackets from noctua i'm told.

Keep in mind that the industrial fans are much louder.

edited to note 120 and 140 mm fan use
At what rpm and noise level were stock fans versus new NF-F12 & NF-F14 iPPC speed and noise level?
I ask because I get 9.3c lower temps with TY-143 on TRUE Spirit 140 Power than with stock fan, but that is TY-147 1300rpm fan vs TY-143 2500rpm .. got 8.25c lower temps with pair of same fans on NH-D14. But TY-143 at 2500rpm was also too loud to live with while at 1300rpm they gave same performance as TY-147 did at 1300rpm



I'm guessing 120mm to clear RAM and 140mm between towers.

Seems like only a few have used 8mm pipes. I wonder if it’s a bit tougher getting a good coldplate with larger pipes than 6mm.
They have been sitting on a 7 heatpiped version of both nh-d14 and d15 for ages. Smells like milk to me...

Member @shilka just received his NH-U12S chromax.black and posted some pics. I took the liberty of posting them here too.

What is the coating like on the new cooler, something that can be easy scuffed or is fairly durable

After i took those pictures i noticed that some of the fins on the left side have been bent by the fan clip during shipping

Edit: never mind i fixed most of the damage with a flat screw driver and my fingers and the coating is not very good the areas where i had to repair the fins have had the coating scratched off
Thank god the fan will cover the damage but if you drop it or it makes contract with anything metal there will be scratches in the finish or at least there will be on mine

The finish while really good looking is not very durable and will be easily scratched which is disappointing

This is one of the first so it could just be from a bad batch
Like i said before and in my thread the fan will cover up the damage but others should be aware that the fins can very easily bend and if you want to fix them DO NOT use anything metal

I have repaired coolers with bent fins with screwdrivers before and never had a problem

I was afraid of that. I will stick with my D15S traditional aluminum look.

Tbh. I probably never will care about the black color of the tower itself, frankly I prefer the aluminum, It looks great with black chromax fans.

What I do care to see, is the new 7 heat pipe D cooler which will not be available for the next several months (mid of 2020) that I do care about

Thank you for sharing the info shilka

I dont care about the color of cooler as much as the fan and it was cheaper to buy the black cooler with the black fan then buying the normal cooler and then a black fan
The fan will cover up the damage and now i know it cant touch anything metal which means i would probably have avoided much worse damage if i had not known
