Noctua finally ready with the NH-D15 G2

Translate from : Noctua endelig klar med NH-D15 G2
Noctua has today launched its long-awaited NH-D15 G2, the next-generation flagship model of CPU coolers, as well as the NF-A14x25r G2 round frame 140mm fans. The new G2 products build on the legacy of the iconic NH-D15 and its NF-A15 fans.

Packed with Noctua's latest technologies, they are carefully refined in every area to deliver even better, quiet cooling performance than their award-winning predecessors.

"Our G2 products have been years in the making and it feels great to finally be able to offer the first of them to our customers," said Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). "We faced various challenges in both design and manufacturing, but we have not compromised and gone the extra mile to ensure that the G2s will be worthy successors to some of our most iconic models. When you have them in hands, I'm sure you'll be able to feel some of the dedication and persistence that has gone into creating these fans and coolers."

The NH-D15 G2 is the further developed second generation of Noctua's iconic NH-D15. With its advanced, speed-adjusted NF-A14x25r G2 PWM fans, eight heatpipes and asymmetric cooling fins carefully fine-tuned to work with the new fans, it achieves even better quiet cooling performance than its award-winning predecessor. As such, the G2 version is a true flagship model that continues the legacy of the original NH-D15 by pushing the boundaries of air cooling and competing with the efficiency of many all-in-one (AIO) water cooling solutions.


In addition to its further improved performance, the NH-D15 G2 also offers improved compatibility thanks to an offset construction that allows it to avoid blocking the top PCIe x16 slot on most modern motherboards. Last but not least, the G2 version is upgraded to Torx®-based SecuFirm2+™ multi-socket mounting system with included NM-SD1 screwdriver as well as Noctua's superior NT-H2 thermal paste. In short, the NH-D15 G2 has been further refined in virtually every area from the heatsink and fans all the way down to the mount, thermal paste and accessory package. Topped off with Noctua's trusted 6-year manufacturer's warranty, it's the new first choice for customers who demand the best of the best in air cooling.

Taking platform-specific optimization to a new level, the NH-D15 G2 is available in a regular, standard version and two specialized variants: The regular NH-D15 G2 uses the same medium base convexity as most other Noctua heatsinks, making it a perfect all-rounder that gives optimal results on AM5 with the included offset mount and on LGA1700 CPUs using the included NM-ISW1 washers (or optional so-called contact frames) to reduce CPU deformation from ILM pressure . The HBC (High Base Convexity) variant is specially optimized for LGA1700 processors that are used with full ILM pressure or have been permanently deformed by long-term use, and provides excellent contact quality despite the CPU's concave shape. The LBC (Low Base Convexity) variant, on the other hand, is specifically optimized for relatively flat CPUs. As such, it offers excellent contact quality on AMD AM5 even without offset mounting, as well as on other comparably flat CPUs (eg AM4, LGA2066, LGA2011(-3), patched or custom flat heatspreaders, etc.).

For customers looking to upgrade existing heatsinks such as the first generation NH-D15, NH-D15S or NH-U14S series, the new round frame NF-A14x25r G2 fans will also be available separately, both in a regular single fan package (NF-A14x25r G2 PWM) and a dedicated dual fan package for push-pull configurations (NF-A14x25r G2 PWM Sx2-PP). Like the fans that come pre-installed on the NH-D15 G2, the ones included in the Sx2-PP kit are fine-tuned with a 50rpm speed offset to prevent acoustic interaction phenomena such as periodic buzzing or intermittent vibrations.

The square frame version of the NF-A14x25 G2 fan for water cooling radiators and cabin cooling applications is currently scheduled for September.
