Test verdict: "Out of all the top three tested however, the Noctua NH-D15 has an advantage in terms of having a lower sound profile and a far simpler yet effective installation procedure. The NH-D15 also has the advantage of a 6-year warranty, the longest offered by any CPU cooler manufacturer. For this, the Noctua NH-D15 earns the Modders-Inc Must Have Award."

Test verdict: "Where the NH-U12S excels is actually being inaudible outside a case - you literally can't make it out amongst other case fans or a graphics card. This is where the extra cash is going - not in cooling but in offering similar performance to other, cheaper air coolers but with a significantly lower noise level." (Antony Leather, bit-tech.net)
