Retired Moderator. It’ll be tight, but technically will fit, yes. HOWEVER that assumes you don’t need to raise the front fan to clear your RAM – which is a possibility in some instances.

What should the sound pressure be on my Noctua?

So explaining sound is always difficult, but up-to 40 dBA with our testing methodology is considered to be silent . We now put the processor under 100% load again with the processor under full load for a full Prime95 run. Noise pressure is a difficult thing to explain alright. So if you want silence then up-to 40 dBA is your baseline threshold.

Which is the best air cooler for the nh-d15?

The NH-D15’s direct competition consists mainly of well-known air coolers and classics such as the Noctua NH-D14 SE2011, Phantek’s PH-TC14PE and the EKL Alpenföhn K2 – as well as several all-in-one water-cooling systems.
