This is a great cooler. It doesn't block the first pcie slot and is very easy to install. I don't have air conditioning in my apartment so I only plan on overclocking when the weather gets cold. However, even after using prime 95 with a 10 percent overclock for 1 hour I never get delta temps more than 32-33 celsius compared to idle. I was a bit disappointed to only receive one fan with the cooler as the symmetrical version does come with 2 fans. I did buy a 2nd fan just because I was curious nonetheless but it only improved temps by 2-3 degrees.

Pros:

  • Amazing air cooling performance

  • Quiet

  • Relatively light for its size

  • No RAM or GPU clearance issues

Cons:

  • Obviously, it is huge

What a beast! This CPU cooler is just monstruous in size and performance. I never had my CPU running at more than 68°C during Aida64 stress test. And the best part was that I could barely hear the fans spinning! Although it is massive, it remains very easy to install. Packaging has all you need and you can easily add/remove RAM even with the cooler in place.

I've wanted a great cooler since I was OC'ing and I didn't want expensive WC cooling AIOs that perform roughly the same and are noisy. The cooler performs just as expected, it's really good and keeps my OC temps low :)

Keeps the CPU running cool with the same performance of an AIO liquid cooler, just wish Noctua fans could be standard in black. Also very quiet!

The high compatibility upgrade to the NH-D15, changes are: Asymmetric (offset) base so no longer blocks first (top) PCIe slot; RAM cutouts on both sides for taller RAM. Single AF15 fan with clips supplied added second fan (NF12), which keeps noise level down on full load compared to single fan setup. Notes: It's very big like almost 3 x a Cooler Master 212x so check it will fit being so big it cools very quietly.

I did not stress this cooler enough, I am not OC'ing. However - it can easily handle a good OC, it's super quiet and like me old-school The best air-cooler on the market (Except maybe the D15 which is not going to fit well in my setup), No risk of water leaks. Cons: Expensive. Other thoughts: I bought thermal past, in no where I looked did it say that it comes with it - which is odd, Noctua is well known for A grade products so I don't see why they don't say that the thermal past is included..

Fantastic cooling performance, pain in the *** to mount in tighter cases.

Great choice for if you want the power of a D15 on smaller mATX motherboards. Compatible pretty much all RAM sizes and graphics cards, no matter which mobo you use. Just make sure you install it in the correct orientation to save yourself the stress of having to do everything twice.
