NOCTUA NH D15 CHROMAX BLACK COOLING AIR
The NOCTUA NH D15 CHROMAX BLACK CPU cooler is an all-black version of the award-winning, flagship NH-D15 CPU cooler from Noctua.
And with the same dual-tower heatsink design and NF-A15 PWM fans, this stays true to the NH-D15’s successful formula to rival the performance of all-in-one water coolers while remaining impressively quiet to operate.
The chromax.black edition, meanwhile, with its black fans and black-coated heatsink, combines these assets with a stylish stealth look.
Topping off the popular NH-D15 chromax.black with a SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system, Noctua’s NT-H1 thermal compound and a full 6-year manufacturer’s warranty, the NH-D15 chromax.black is a premium choice for both overclocking professionals and silent enthusiasts. An elite-grade heatsink that looks as good as it cools.
Features of NOCTUA NH D15 CHROMAX BLACK COOLING AIR
- Award winning NH-D15 cooler
Tens of thousands of enthusiast users worldwide swear by the NH-D15’s quality and performance. Recommended by over 200 international hardware websites and magazines, it is renowned for being one of the best high-end coolers on the market.
- chromax. black design
Black from head to toe: featuring a black plated heatsink, black fans with black anti-vibration pads, black fan clips and black mounting hardware, the NH-D15 chromax.black is at home in easy-to-use, all-black designs that integrate with other color schemes .
- Customizable color
Using optional NA-HC3 and NA-HC4 heatsink covers as well as NA-SAVP3 anti-vibration pads (available in black, blue, green, red, yellow, and white), the NH-D15 chromax.black can be fully customized to match popular build color schemes such as black and red or black and white .
- 6 double tower heat pipe design
Compared to traditional single-tower convection evaporators, the NH-D15’s six-heatpipe dual-tower design provides greater surface area, better heat distribution, and superior airflow efficiency in dual-fan mode.
- Expanded fin stack and expanded heat pipe layout
Compared to the NH-D14, the NH-D15’s fin stack has been enlarged from 140 to 150 mm and the heat pipes are now farther apart, which allows for more uniform heat distribution over a larger surface area and thus contributes to the NH-D15’s superior efficiency.
- High RAM compatibility in single fan mode
With its hollow bottom fins, the NH-D15 provides 64mm of clearance for tall memory heatsinks in single fan mode, making it compatible with most high-end RAM modules on the market. In dual fan mode, the NH-D15 must be used with standard height RAM (up to 32mm). *
- Dual NF-A15 140mm fans
The NH-D15 features two Noctua premium grade NF-A15 140mm fans. Complying with Noctua’s AAO standard, and featuring cutting-edge aerodynamic design measures such as flow acceleration ducts, the NF-A15 has quickly gained a reputation as one of the best 140mm propellers on the market.
- Support for PWM and low noise converters
The premium NF-A15 fans supplied with the NH-D15 support PWM for automatic speed control by the motherboard. Additionally, the maximum fan speed can be reduced from 1,500 to 1,200 RPM by using the supplied low-noise inverters for quieter operation.
- Excellent component cooling
Extending below the fin stacks, the large NF-A15 fans not only contribute to the NH-D15 CPU’s impressive cooling capabilities, but also provide massive airflow over motherboard components and surrounding heatsinks, ensuring excellent component cooling performance.
- SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system
Noctua’s SecuFirm2™ mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety and ease of installation. Support for Intel LGA1700 (since 2021), LGA1200, LGA115x (LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156) and LGA20xx (LGA2066, LGA2011-0, LGA2011-3), as well as AMD AM4 and AM5, embedded SecuFirm2™ carrier with NH -D15 easy installation, provides ideal contact pressure and will stand the test of time even under heavy use.
- Compatibility with past and future intakes
Thanks to Noctua’s SecuFirm™ ecosystem, the NH-D15 can be made compatible with legacy LGA1366 and LGA775 sockets using the optional NM-I3 mounting kit, which is provided free of charge. If technically feasible, Noctua will also provide upgrade kits for future sockets, making the NH-D15 a safe long-term investment.
- Thermal compound NT-H1
Noctua’s highly acclaimed NT-H1 is a professional TIM solution that offers minimal thermal resistance, excellent ease of use, and superior reliability. Chosen again and again by overclocking professionals and enthusiast users the world over, it has established itself as the benchmark for high-quality thermal compounds.
- Welded interface between heat pipes and fins
With several heatsinks, the fins are mounted on the heat pipes. Due to the different coefficients of thermal expansion for copper and aluminum, this trap can wear out over years of thermal cycling, which can result in reduced performance. By contrast, the NH-D15’s fins are heat-tube welded to ensure a superior thermal interface that does not deteriorate even after many years of use.
- 6 year manufacturer’s warranty
Noctua products are known for their excellent quality and longevity. Like all Noctua fans, the MTTF-rated NF-A15 has a lifespan of over 150,000 hours and the entire NH-D15 package comes with a full 6-year manufacturer’s warranty.
