Design and Aesthetics:

NH-D15 chromax.Black

The NH-D15 chromax.Black features a dual-tower design with two large aluminum heatsinks and a pair of Noctua's 140mm NF-A15 PWM fans. The cooler's design allows for superior heat dissipation, making it capable of handling even the most demanding processors. Aesthetically, this version of the NH-D15 adopts a black color scheme, providing a sleek and modern appearance that complements various build themes.

Freezer 34 eSports

The Arctic Freezer 34 eSports cooler features a cool and modern design, with bright colors that make it stand out in any computer setup. Its design ensures good airflow, which helps it effectively keep your computer cool. There are two versions of this cooler: one with two fans and the one we're discussing here, which has just one fan. Despite having a smaller part that connects to the CPU compared to other coolers, it still performs exceptionally well. It can compete with other fancy coolers like the Scythe Mugen 5 Rev.B, Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4, and the Hyper 212.

Install Notes:

NH-D15 chromax.Black

The NH-D15 features Noctua's SecuFirm2 mounting system, ensuring compatibility with numerous Intel and AMD sockets. The installation process is made easy with the help of clear instructions and top-notch components. Additionally, Noctua includes a tube of their high-quality NT-H1 thermal compound for optimal heat transfer between the CPU and heatsink. However, the cooler's large size may make it challenging to maneuver around when installed within the case.

Freezer 34 eSports

The installation process of the Freezer 34 eSports cooler is somewhat complex yet manageable, thanks to its user-friendly mounting system that is compatible with a variety of Intel and AMD sockets. It utilizes the default AMD backplate, secured with four independent screws, which then connect to the cooler mounting system. However, due to the four independent connection points, achieving a secure connection with all screws can be challenging compared to other systems that only have two. Furthermore, the cooler features a distinctive fan mounting system that attaches directly to the unit. While innovative, the placement of the fans can prove challenging, as the mounting system may detach from the cooler during fan installation. Despite these complexities, detailed instructions are provided, ensuring a smooth installation process for both first-time builders and experienced enthusiasts.

Cooling Performance:

NH-D15 chromax.Black

The performance of the NH-D15 is exceptional due to its six heat pipes that efficiently transfer heat away from the CPU and into the large fin arrays of the heatsinks. It is suitable for a wide range of processors, from mainstream CPUs to high-end models with high TDPs. The cooler can handle high levels of overclocking and provides reliable cooling under demanding situations, making it a popular choice among enthusiasts. If this cooler can't handle the CPU's heat, then you will have to move to AIO coolers.

Freezer 34 eSports

This cooler does an awesome job at keeping your computer from getting too hot. It can work with all sorts of CPUs, from the regular ones to the really powerful ones. It keeps everything cool even when you're doing tough tasks or playing games. Its smart design helps it work well and keeps your computer cool.

Noise Performance:

NH-D15 chromax.Black

One of the standout features of the NH-D15 is its quiet operation relative to its performance. The two included 140mm NF-A15 PWM fans are designed for optimal airflow and low noise levels. Noctua fans are well-known for their excellent acoustic performance, and the NH-D15 is no exception. Users can expect quiet cooling even during intense workloads or gaming sessions. Additionally, the Low-Noise Adaptors (LNA) connectors included can be used to reduce the fan's speed, further reducing the cooler's noise.

Freezer 34 eSports

The Arctic Freezer 34 eSports cooler is super quiet, thanks to its special fans and the way it's designed to move air. It's so quiet that you'll hardly notice it's working, but it still does a great job at cooling your computer.
