Have that card and case, not worth deshrouding unless you cut off the tabs and attach the fans to the shroud itself, and I agree with you.. it’s not worth damaging the card. If you’re using an itx board and your card is 2 slot: You can fit 12x25 fans or even 14x25 under the card with the shroud on. (I fit a pit of nzxt 140mm fans I had on hand in there, would recommend these Noctua fans - they can fit snug without damaging the tabs where your side panels attach.)
Hey bro. Can i get this fan for my cpu cooler from you . This is a small package.
5x1x5 inches and 7 ounce
The fan can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/Noctua-NF-A15-HS-PWM-chromax-Black-swap-Premium-Grade/dp/B07654B9MR
You would stick the black corner things on it to match the one that comes with the cooler. You are also stuck paying the Noctua tax, $27 for a single 140mm fan seems a little steep but it is what it is.
Hi, will this guy fit as bottom intake?
Noctua NF-A15 HS-PWM
It's a 140mm fan with 120mm standard mounting holes (105mm hole spacing). Just trying to squeeze the most out of that space on top of the psu shroud.
Thank you for the inspiration.
If you're all about the rgb? I woudn't. Forgot to mention, the noctua cooler is great, it's actually what i use. One thing you could do, that I did, is to buy a couple black Noctua fans to replace the poop brown ones. They are the same but look SO much better:
Good, the 8700k will last longer. that intel 600p SSD is NMVE, i have it, its good.
I have the original D15 cooler, they are great, my system runs very cool and quiet. One thing I would do if I were you is to buy the chromax versions of the fans that come with it, they are black and have multi color rubber bumpers....THEY LOOK SO MUCH BETTER!
Where can I find this fan?
Edit: found it, thanks
Hope this is what you're looking for
Is this the right fan to make this dual fan?
The NF-A15 will work
Looks like there is, here's a link to the chromax version of the NF-A15 fan from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Noctua-NF-A15-HS-PWM-chromax-Black-swap-Premium-Grade/dp/B07654B9MR
Lol I was on Amazon looking at the NH- D15 custom shield covers . The black set and white set and also the black with color combo add ons. I’m tempted to go with the White not sure yet. You don’t need to switch . Just get the covers for it and switch to Chromax fans.

> You realize that the default NH-D15 aesthetic (without the brown/beige fans) works due to the neutral color of the aluminum? Here's an idea maybe you should look up the Redux refresh that is coming out that is cheaper and also is just as aesthetic.
Regardless - it's silver, and comes with brown fans. This one is black and comes with black fans.
It's a different aesthetic. They are equal but different. lol.
the "redux" lines are grey, and not quite as good as the current fans, hence reduced price. They aren't black.
>Doesn't matter what's available right now.
Yes it does.
>NF-A15 Chromax aren't that price range. If you're so concerned then get Redux NF-P14R/S ,rubber corners and you'd still save money. There's plenty of alternatives that aren't Chromax including Redux or other competing options.
They absolutely are. Newegg - $40
the Chromax cover is another 40 bones.
So far we're up to more than $100 to black out an existing D15.
> If you're so concerned then get Redux NF-P14R/S ,rubber corners and you'd still save money. There's plenty of alternatives that aren't Chromax including Redux or other competing options.
The 14's have 140mm spacing, and don't fit the cooler mount properly. you need 120mm spacing like on the a12's or a15's.
The p14r/s can't use rubber mount corners (which are $10 for enough for 2 fans), are STILL $20 a piece, are louder and lower performance, and are grey.
>It's not better than the NF-A14/NF-F12 that were LTT branded. Oh wait it's the same exact shit just recycled.
those aren't available now, and at the time they were noctua didn't have their chromax line. I think you had to get an industrial noctua fan if you wanted a black one and they were almost $50 each.
The black cooler is going to be around for a while. the LTT is a limited edition thing.
>I get to dictate
No, the fuck you don't. lmao. You don't get to dictate a goddamned thing.
>price/performance is no longer on Noctua's side with this or the NH-U12A. They're now priced just as high as a 280 AIO or similarly.
Sure. The price/performance has decreased. Nobody debated that. Not everything is about pure performance per dollar though. There are many better "values" on the market - that doesn't make this one a "waste of money".
>If you want aesthetics then you'd go for an AIO than paying a premium.
"aesthetics" isn't a universal thing. Some people like the aesthetic of a water cooler, some like a big black air cooler. All depends on which aesthetic you like. "all blacked out" is an aesthetic just as much as "rgb everything" is.
>That premium is a before tax premium.
Yes... after taxes it's an extra dollar or three depending. $23.50 on a $2350 machine then... Most reasonable adults would assume "plus taxes" on things.

Here are the fans: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07654B9MR
If you can, buy the chromax.Black.swap kit. Two of this + this. If you like black, OFC. It will look awesome! I am planning to buy this soon, but it'll cost me around 300 USD due to living in Brazil =/
I'll personally be buying:
And doing a 140 center + 120 on each side. It works great!

There are some chromax fans that look soooo much better than the stock ones:

I bought two of the chromax NF-A15 fans and swapped them with the stock ones on my d15. They look SO MUCH BETTER! Also they have a bit higher rpm max. Buy the cooler and the chromax fans, sell the stock noctua fans or put them as intake/exhaust where you cant see them.
EDIT: take those brown noctua fans off and buy the chromax 140mm case fans as well, they aren't that much more:
Also, you don't need a 750psu, an evga 650 would work perfect and it would be cool if you go the g.skill rgb ram so your motherboard can utilize a feature it has called AURA where it will sync the rgb leds on your Asus mobo, ram, and gpu.
