Further improved cooling performance: The next-generation models use a fine-tuned variant of the original NH-D15’s dual tower heatsink design with 10% more surface area and 7 instead of 6 heatpipes. As this demonstration shows, this allows the upcoming dual fan version to provide even better cooling performance than its award-winning predecessor.

Enhanced capacity at higher heat loads: It’s at demanding heat loads such as with high TDP CPUs, extensive turbo use or overclocking where the next-generation models really play their strengths: As this demonstration shows, the dual fan TR4 version can confidently handle AMD Threadripper processors that put out more than 400W.


RAM and PCIe compatibility: All versions of the next-generation D-type cooler have inherited the asymmetrical design of the NH-D15S, which allows them to clear the top PCIe slots on most Micro-ATX motherboards. Thanks to the cut-outs for increased RAM clearance, the single fan versions can be used with modules of up to 65mm height.

Fanless CPU cooler

  • Completely custom-designed for best natural convection (passive cooling) performance
  • Enhanced performance with low-noise case fans or fan mounted on the cooler, ideal for semi-passive setups
  • Performance targets: up to 120W in a fanless case with good natural convection / up to 180W with quiet case fans or fan directly on the cooler
  • Asymmetric design for better PCIe clearance
  • 100% RAM compatibility on LGA115x and AM4
  • To be bundled with new NT-H2 thermal compound
  • Current ETA: 2020 Page 18 / 23 COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2019 chromax line CPU coolers
