Noctua makes some of the best air CPU coolers out there. We know this because we’ve tested many of their coolers over the years. With AMD’s Ryzen launch we were brought a new socket (AM4) so Noctua decided to release three Special Edition coolers just for it. These include the NH-D15 SE-AM4, NH-U12S SE-AM4, and NH-L9x65 SE-AM4. We actually have all three coolers on hand, but will be testing the NH-D15 SE-AM4 first. This cooler has a dual-tower, dual-fan design featuring six copper heatpipes, two NF-A15 140mm fans, and Noctua’s SecuFirm2 mounting system so installation should be pretty easy. Let’s see what this cooler is all about!
Noctua has kept their same packaging we know them for on these new coolers. The only real change is that there is a “Special Edition for AMD AM4” on the box. As always the box is very informative and gives you all of the information you need to make your purchase at the store.
Getting everything out of the box you actually find three smaller boxes inside. These include a box with the NH-D15 heatsink with single fan attached, a box with a second NF-A15 fan, and a third box with your accessories and the mounting hardware.
