    27.11.2014 - mod-your-case.de NH-U9S
    Test verdict: "Mit dem NH-U9S hat Noctua wieder einmal gezeigt, dass man ein gutes Produkt mit viel Entwicklungsarbeit noch besser machen kann. Dies bezieht sich nicht nur auf die Kühlleistung des neuen NH-U9S, sondern auch auf die Kompatibilität." (Patrick Seus, mod-your-case.de)

    Test verdict: "After I spent some time having fun with the biggest fans included in the series I can say that I am really impressed to see the classic NF-P14 revived in the shape of two brand new, much cheaper versions with absolutely renewed appearance and much better performance."

    26.11.2014 - ZeDen.net NH-D15
    Test verdict: "Au final, le bilan de ce ventirad est vraiment très bon. Les améliorations apportées par Noctua à son produit phare, le NH-D14, nous ont vraiment convaincues. Le NH-D15 est bel et bien le meilleur ventirad de la marque, notamment grâce à ses nouveaux ventilateurs et à son design de radiateur revu pour une meilleure comptabilité. Bien sûr, ce niveau de qualité a un prix, mais il ne faut pas oublier que si cette solution haut de gamme - modulaire et adaptables à presque tous les sockets - peut paraitre chère, elle peut rivaliser avec les watercooling AIO les plus récents !"
