    FAQ



    How can I check whether my AMD mainboard has a standard AMD backplate that’s compatible with the SecuFirm2™ mounting system and how should I proceed with the installation?

    The SecuFirm2™ mounting system requires a standard AMD backplate (either plastic or metal) with screw threads as shown on the pictures below. These backplates are pre-installed on the rear side of most AMD mainboards (see first picture below) and fixed to the retention module with four screws (see second picture below). If your retention module is fixed with plastic bolts instead of metal screws, please contact support@noctua.at in order to obtain an appropriate backplate.

    In order to proceed with the installation of your Noctua cooler, please remove the four screws and the retention module but keep the backplate in place so that you can see the screw threads from the top side of the motherboard (see third picture below). You can then proceed with the installation of the SecuFirm2™ mounting kit as described in the manual (see fourth picture below).

Test verdict: "The NH-D15 is a great option for those chasing a super quiet rig and builders who don't want to use closed loop water coolers but still want to chase heavy overclocks. It isn't cheap but it's build to last and performs well at a whisper. This is a well finished and thought out cooler and a worthy successor to the iconic NH-D14." (Phil Carroll, PCGamers.net.au)

21.10.2014 - HwT.dk NH-D15
Test verdict: "Noctuas nye topmodel lever uden problemer op til forventningerne. Et lækkert kvalitetsprodukt som leverer hele vejen igennem, især når det kommer til køleevne. Det er desuden rigtigt flot at se hvor meget Noctua har forbedret sig i forhold til den gamle topmodel, NH-D14, som stadig er en god køler, bare ikke helt så god som den nye NH-D15." (Lynge Poulsgaard, HwT.dk)
