from completed build So, I did a thing...
This thing is a BEAST. Typical Noctua lifetime warranty with performance beating out 98% of the 240mm/280mm and even 360mm AIO's. Keeps my CPU temps low and when I've got headphones on I can't hear the fans run. The thermal capacity on this thing is so enormous, I can have an ambient temp of >30 degrees Celsius and the fans don't need to even need to spin (fans set to stop <40 degrees)

Having previously used an NH-D14, I knew what to expect. Great performance in both the thermal and sound level department. The D15S is offset slightly for better RAM and PCI-e clearance. This one is functional yet is very plain looking, just what I desire.

6yr warranty. No fuss air on par with water coolers. Fits FD Core 500 & doesn't block RAM. Quiet (25dB) Keeps i7-8700K 4.8GHz cool (35C rest; 65C max).

Great cooler. Took a bit to get used to the colors but I have actually grown fond of the eye sore.
Super silent and it keeps everything incredibly cool under load even when I pump up my OC's.
I did add a second fan for kicks and giggles though.

Fits well in a micro ATX case. Does a great job cooling the CPU.

MASSIVE! This is perfect for those satisfied with stock CPU clock speeds, it will last forever, and it does an excellent job keeping the CPU cool! About a quarter inch of clearance in the NZXT S340 Case.

I did not stress this cooler enough, I am not OC'ing. However - it can easily handle a good OC, it's super quiet and like me old-school The best air-cooler on the market (Except maybe the D15 which is not going to fit well in my setup), No risk of water leaks. Cons: Expensive. Other thoughts: I bought thermal past, in no where I looked did it say that it comes with it - which is odd, Noctua is well known for A grade products so I don't see why they don't say that the thermal past is included..
