It beat D14 by 1-2c on i7 920 @ 4.3GHz, and D14 is as good if not a little better than D15, so yeah it is better .. also about $50 which is a steal for how well it performs.

It is also less money with only one fan that you plan replacing with TY-143's anyway.
But TRUE Spirit 140 Power with TY-14e's is even better if it will fit.

Bottom line, my AIO is dead and I'm having second thoughts going to AIOs again ... I have 2 of those fans here and I remember that on the NH-D14 there was a 8º improvement... curious about D15.

Thank you all!

Aenra Agreed, can help if the situation requires it i suppose, but assuming a good blowing prior to letting it out, even that is too much.
Of course, OK, depends on location too; am in southern EU, so a few minutes in the sun for me is.. yeah.. again though, always blow it first; nothing takes water out like a good blower.
(and semi-unrelated, but by blower i mean the garden variety; no "PC-specialised" crap, no chemicals, no replaceable air cans; good 'ole traditional air blower)

Where it's a must is on copper surfaces; there yeah, after coating with a proper paste and wiping it out, you do need a thorough, consistent rub with a cloth; consistent, not hard

Where liquid -could- harm your cooler, could, it will not; because it is plated and soldered. Shall we frame it thus and finally call it a day?

Anyway, i've never had rust, discoloration or any other issue with cleaning air coolers the way i have been. As stated in fact, they still look brand new; despite their age and in some cases (chipset coolers, particularly my HR-55), heavy usage in adverse conditions, as i used to smoke in the office. Even so.
But you guys are obviously free to discount it.

Here, i'll help. Coolers get grey and rusty in a few years, nothing we can do about it. To quote another poster here, it's only natural.
You, like most users haven't had flinsh develop a patina, but it does happen quite often. As for oxidation developing into white corrosion, that is usually the resust of a damp cooler being stored is an air-tight place, like in box. That kind of oxidation doesn't happen over night.

I have washed coolers, even motherboards and GPU in hot soapy water to clean heavy smoke buildup. I then rinse with distilled water and blow-dry with wife's hair dryer. For motherboards of GPUs I often warm up the oven and set them in for a few more hours. Reasons for usign distilled water final rinse is it has no impurities in it to react with anything and it does not conduct electricity.

To remove patina try using a silver cleaning cloth like used to clean silverware or jewelry. I've done this a few times on cooler fins.

That is my understanding as well. Same applies to Thermalright.
