Noctua NH-D15 SSO2 D-Type Premium CPU Cooler, NF-A15 x 2 PWM Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Bolt Broke 08/20/2015

This review is from: Noctua NH-D15 SSO2 D-Type Premium CPU Cooler, NF-A15 x 2 PWM Fans

Pros: It cools

Cons: Bolt that holds the cross members broke when trying to remove the thumb screw. I know it isn't a stressed member but after a couple months it shouldn't have just broke in half.

NVIDIA Pick 1 of 3 GAMES: Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4 and The Crew (Up to $59.99 Retail Value)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Meh

Cons: Got the game finally... Then UPlay messed up my desktop icons with the manipulation of the DSR, crashed the game and gave me a blue screen... So I uninstalled everything associated with the game (The Crew, UPlay) and I set the DSR to "OFF" and I am back to blissful ignorance of anything to do with UPlay, save to my bad memories of the whole dam process.

Other Thoughts: If the only games in the world were UPlay games, I would become a "former gamer".

MSI GeForce GTX 970 GTX 970 GAMING 4G 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: No coil whine, no sound at all.

Cons: White MSI logo? But that can be turned off... plus it's adjustable to several presets for those who don't mind the white color.

Other Thoughts: No sound from coil whine, no fan noise and the card rarely goes over 62ºC even during benchies. I like this much more than my EVGA GTX 770 2GB I had and certainly more than those cards in SLI. Had one OC edition and the other was regular and both had the ACX cooler (1.0). Those could get warm at 78ºC + and the Precision X was pretty bad as it would apply random settings after each computer restart. The 970 benched 300 to 400 points higher in Unigine heaven bench's. Prob going SLI with this for the WOW factor, both in looks and performance.
