    I know you didn't intend to Mike. It's just one of those subjects that brings people out of the woodwork to argue about. Not quite as bad as saying Nvidia Graphics Cards are a lot better than AMD.

    Obviously hijacked and off subject, whether unintentional. I'm marking it solved.

    Fireberd, Sorry for the distraction but we're back on topic now. Most of the Noctua coolers I have used will fill up most any case. That's the thing about air coolers. They have to have huge radiators to be effective. It's the same with water, just more options for radiator placement and the shape. Water is also a more efficient conductor of heat than air is. But, the principle is the same.


    The AIO coolers take up less space, make the case look cleaner and do a good job. And, yes there is a risk with water but the cases of that happening are pretty unusual. We see more cases of it because I think people are much more likely to report something that went wrong than they are about something that worked like it was supposed to. I'm using an AIO now and have used them and custom water cooling for years and never had an issue. That does not mean you won't, but I think unlikely. Just my opinion.

    And take half the space inside the case.

    I looked at the NH15 but it was too big for my system so I went with the NH14 which was rated within a degree or two of the NH15. I installed the optional second Noctua fan on mine, which is what the NH15 comes with, so even closer to the 15.

    I'll reinstall the liquid cooler this week, when I have time, and be done with it. Will only take about an hour (or less) to swap them. I have the two step CPU heatsink cleaner to clean the CPU and cooler (and new Arctic Silver5).

    I'm not familiar with that particular AIO but I am familiar with the D14. I used one for years. If your fans are too loud on your AIO, you may consider using 2 of the Noctua fans on it. They do a good job and are much quieter than what usually comes with most of the Liquid coolers. You can run them at 100% and probably won't hear them.

    Empty space is wasted space 😉

    Empty space is case ventilation space.
