    In a market that's increasingly driven by cost saving rather than customer dedication and flooded with branded budget products, we take pride in striving for excellence both in product and service quality. For example, our heatsinks feature all soldered joints for maximum performance and durability, our fans' 150,000h+ MTBF is backed up by a full 6 years manufacturer's warranty and when AMD introduced AM2 and Intel introduced LGA1366, we provided thousands of users with mounting kits for free. As a result, an ever growing base of avid Noctua users not only swears by the thoroughgoing premium quality of our products, but also by our excellent, customer-friendly service.

16.09.2014 - 4Tech.be NH-D15
Test verdict: "Noctua heeft met de NH-D15 weer laten zien dat het heer en meester is op het gebied van luchtkoeling. De NH-D15 weet ontzettend goede prestaties neer te zetten op zowel het gebied van koeling als geluidsproductie. Hij weet in ieder geval veel waterkoelsetjes te evenaren of zelfs voorbij te streven." (Henk van Hest, 4Tech.be)

Test verdict: "Misschien wel dé verrassing van deze test: hoe kan een koeler die slechts 8 centimeter diep is vrijwel net zo goed koelen als gevaartes als de Noctua NH-D15? Deze Noctua U14S staat qua koelprestaties in de top 4, neemt niet veel plek in en is ook nog redelijk stil." (Koen Crijns, Hardware.Info)

15.09.2014 - BigBruin.com NH-D15
Test verdict: "Considering that this cooler exceeded the cooling performance of the NH-U12S and the NH-U14S, and matched if not exceeded the low noise production of both, the Noctua NH-D15 heatpipe tower CPU cooler has to receive the Bigbruin.com 'Recommended' and 'Whisper Quiet' awards."
