    That's a nice looking cooler........ but for that price just step up to the D14S.

    Finally the cooler i´ve been waiting is being released. And it´s basically the same size as my trusty NH-U12P SE2. Can´t wait for the review of this beauty!
    About the review, do you know when we can expect it Hilbert?

    ... Why is it $100 USD? That's more than the NH-D15.

    Probably its down to fans as this one does use pair of A12x25 fans and price per fan is around £/$25-30 and this would add to price of cooler


    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    I get that, but still, the D15S is likely just as quiet and probably cools just as good because of surface area.

    I was liking the heatsink until I saw the price. Uff that's a lot for me.

    Acoording to noctua both will perform similarly, so you are probably right. But are a ton of people that are not comfortable with twin tower size/weight, others that might have issues with the first PCie slot, and even then height are sometimes issues on with the D15 in certain cases, in all this scenarios, U12A is likely to be a viable option.

    This^^ Many, me included, don´t want a gigantic cooler inside a case. And for them this cooler is perfect. If it performs as i expect i´m going to buy it as long as the price is not more than 100€.
