So after all the input from everyone here (everyone that commented) I purchased a Noctua NH-D15, Premium CPU Cooler with 2x NF-A15 PWM 140mm Fans.

I will be posting up results of My findings with screen shots and tons of smack (shit) talk if it fails or if it is totally beyond sweet.
So be ready for this people. It should be here on the 17 or 19th. ( Pray this thing performs as well as you all have said or better!)

Pray for yourself on patience, worry, anxiousness
NO Pray this works as good or BETTER than "YOU ALL" (not referring to anyone one specific) told me it would on a Ryzen 7 1700. Just PRAY!
I have almost no patience! I almost over night shipped the cooler! if it were not that it would be here this time next week I would have! Trust me!

The NH-D15 is one of the best air coolers you can buy. It trades blows with the best AIO coolers (not sure about the triple rad ones though, those came out later). If even that is not enough, the only way up is real water. Not an AIO, but a real custom water setup.

I mean, it'll be better. It won't really up your OC though. Just bring the temps outta the stratosphere.

1. There are several hi end air coolers to consider .... Noctua NH-D15, Cryorig R1, Phanteks PH-TC14PE which all run about $90... then there's the $45 Scythe Fuma which tops them all. To my mind, they have no 'raison d'etre"

2. I have yet to discern a valid reason for a CLC AIO type cooler other than a) I don't like the way it looks and b) I want to be able to tell my friend I have water cooling.

3. Let's look at the numbers.



There are no air coolers that top the Scythe ... There is only 1 CLC that tops the Scythe and to do that it has to be more than 50% louder.

4. Note that is you replace the Noctua fans on a Noctua cooler with Phanteks fans, temps drop 6C at same rpm

True Spirit 140 Power is better than LGMRT, TPU hasn't reviewed it yet, so its not on the list..

One thing I am kinda worried about is the RAM clearance. I measured from the MB to the top of my RAM and it is 1 and 3/4" tall. I hope it will clear the RAM I can not seem to find out this bit of information.
I hope this works.

Noctua D15: https://noctua.at/en/nh-d15/specification

Also if it does not clear the ram, you may can still fit the cooler fan at the other end. D15 can have up-to 3 fans (space permitting).
Yeah maybe the fans can just blow the other way? Heck the RAM can get cooled that was as well.
Can hardly wait and see really. not long now 3-4 days away!

Yeah looks like the "front fan" is going to be a bugger. The RAM sits at a height of 44 mm the HSF with "front fan" is 32 mm so there's that.

I tried to tell you that when I suggested Le Grand Macho RT. No clearance problems. The same if not better performance, etc.

Now there will have to be compromise.

I had that issue with the heat sink in my 3930k system. I just mounted the fan a little high on the heatsink to give the RAM the clearance it needed.

Problem is, You told me AFTRE I had purchaced it and after I had said I am going to pull the trigger on this CPU cooler. Everyone here said this is the BEST well I will soon see (Yes not you, you said the Grand Macho RT. is. ).

True, but Ive mentioned it many times in the not so distant past, on a couple of forums. I've said it so much I'm almost sick of saying it lol.

I had that issue with the heat sink in my 3930k system. I just mounted the fan a little high on the heatsink to give the RAM the clearance it needed.
That's what I did with my old D14 on x58. The fan sat about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch above the top of the hs. Compromise. Might not sound like much, but its less air that you get to push through your hundred dollar heatsink.

Good thing I can push the air through the front then? Just reverse the fans that will work in my case at least as my case is wire mesh.

I can't stand those benchmarks... first they are open air which negates one of the biggest strengths of liquid cooling... also water cooling works off of deltaT... so you can add a 100e of heat and temp barely climb... so unless they are using a testing that pushes the limits of the coolers you won't see the true dissipation power of the systems.

Put them in a case and watch all of those air coolers raise 5-8c on the tests

This is only Air cooler I would use, except smaller Noctua.

Noctua NF-U12A


With NF-U12A you got more than 50$ worthy 2 fans.
With them on higher speed temps are probably very similar to D15 and cooler is much nicer, smaller.
Simply temperature difference not worth any more buying bigger version that NF-U12A.


or AIO definitely Swiftech H360 X3.

Le Grand Macho RT has 7 pipes as well. And a lot more fin area. You can use the cooler passively, or you can add a TY-143 and push 130cfm though the cooler. It is quite large. I'm not sure I would run it passively with the cpu's that I have. I should try sometime.

Might not sound like much, but its less air that you get to push through your hundred dollar heatsink.
Didn't seem to effect performance any with my Deep Cool Assassin heat sink. My 3930k at 4.25 GHz at full load for days on end running WCG, it stays below 75' c.

BTW, I do not physically clean my system like I should, and when I do clean it, it stays below 70'c while running WCG.
