You are also welcome to post any pics of your rig with the NH-D15 installed so we could see how it fits in your case and if it touches the first PCIe slot of your mobo.

Haha here I am Googling for a update on the price (because of Robilar's post about 50mins ago) and then I stumble on this.

and start another one. On what authority do you make this one more "official" than ehume's ???
Hopefully a mod will merge this one into ehume's.

That thread is more of an announcement of the NH-D15. This thread on the other hand will be the official club of the NH-D15.

It definitely is bigger.
Specification differences:
NH-D15(with fans) = 165x150x161mm(H,W,D), 1320g, 2x NF-A15 PWM 1500rpm 140,2 m³/h 24.6dBA
NH-D14(with fans) = 160x140x151mm(), 1070g, NF-P14 / NF-P12 1200/1300rpm 110,3 / 92,3 m³/h 19,6 / 19,8dB(A

NH-D15 is 5x10x10mm bigger; 250g heavier; 200/300rpm faster; 40m³/h more air (guessing) and is almost 5dBA louder at full speed

There are 2 NF-A15 fans;
The 1500rpm version supplied with coolers.
And the 1200rpm one we can buy.
Deepor found this in NH-U14S manual there are two versions of A15
Quote:
Please note that while the NF-A15 fan included with NH-U14S runs at 1500rpm, Noctua recommends using the standard 1200rpm retal version as a rear fan in push/pull mode as the combination of 1500rpm at front and 1200rpm at the rear will provide the best balance of performance and acoustics.

If you would like to run both fans at same speed, please use the supplied Low-Noise Adaptor on the front fan to reduce the speed to 1200rpm.
See here, second page, middle column; "Adding a second fan": http://noctua.at/pdf/manuals/noctua_nh_u14s_manual_en.pdf

Please note that clubs and threads in general can't be made official unless approved by staff; since this section still has no specific Editor, it falls on mega_option101 to decide.

The [Official] Haswell thread is dead and the original post stopped updating BEFORE Haswell came out. My thread has 12,000+. Go figure.

Doyll can you give us a rough estimate of delta t we can expect between NH-D14 and NH-D15 ? Thanks.

I would guess it will perform better but really don't want to guess. Hopefully some will be reviewed soon.

First review of NH-D15
http://www.modders-inc.com/noctua-nh-d15-dual-tower-cpu-cooler-review/
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.
