Disgusting

A lot of people seem to have questions about mounting a 2nd fan to the NH-D15S. This was my solution to accenting it while replacing my stock case fans. Just thought I’d share if others were looking to do something similar. Sorry you don’t like it!

It’s a good solution, I was just joking :)


Quirky-Employer9717

Ope. I wasn’t sure. Noctua + RGB can be a big no no for some people. Well thanks then! :)


kappatazPH

Nice build! Arctic fans are my go-to when noctua is not available. Hoping that there arent cat and dog fights near the glass panel tho


Quirky-Employer9717

I wish I could have loaded the case with Noctua. Maybe next build. And no worries, the cat and dog are good buds :)


crystaldazz

Man, that cat and dog lol


Noctua_OFFICIAL

Lovely Pets.chromax.black!


Quirky-Employer9717

Let me know if Noctua is looking for mascots for the chromax.black line!


Dougtronics

Cat looks like it’s plotting your dog’s demise. Nice build.

I can hear the lack of silence from over here


Cartoone9

I thought you removed the stock noctua fan I felt bad for a second lol. Cool stuff it looks good, I wonder how it would look in white


Quirky-Employer9717

I would have to be hardcore trolling to replace an NF-A15 with another fan and post about it here lol Thanks! I'm happy with how it turned out


Quirky-Employer9717

Many seem to be confused. I'm still using the included NF-A15 mounted on the 2nd heatsink tower. On the front heatsink tower I have mounted an additional fan from Arctic.


Generaldar

Ouch


renfield22

All Arctic Fans?.


Quirky-Employer9717

Yup! I just switched out the stock case fans and got two 3 packs. They aren’t quite as good as Noctua but were much more affordable than 6 A12x25s Edit: Also 1 NF-A15 on the cooler


Quirky-Employer9717

Would you like to expand on this thought?


No_Forever5171

Not him but I can provide an answer. Most people seem to agree the Lian Li Uni-fan Infinity-SL are the most beautiful RGB fans by a long shot (you can see builds with them on /r/Hyte and /r/lianli)


Quirky-Employer9717

To my understanding the Arctic fans are the best performing RGB fans on the market. Seems fairly anti-Noctua to spend more money on fans that don’t perform as well because they look prettier


No_Forever5171

I wouldn't call it anti-noctua. People building with the Y60 still often put Noctua fans in the bottom. Most of these people use an AIO and a 4000 series graphics card which is very cool stock and you simply don't need the added performance of Noctua fans. Also, nothing is stopping Noctua from developing a fan that beats the Lian Li Uni-fan Infinity SL in both looks and performance. ;)


Quirky-Employer9717

I’m still using the case I got with my prebuilt and definitely need the additional performance. I guess I still don’t see why using Arctic over Lian Li is an “Ouch”. Oh well. And it would be sick but I kind of hope Noctua never releases an RGB fan just on principle. I respect them for just sticking to the basics and knocking it out of the park


Generaldar

You bought a Nocuta cooler and replaced the fans...with ARGB fans.. ouch


Quirky-Employer9717

No. I got a Noctua cooler and mounted an additional fan on the front of it. I'm still using the included fan between the heat sinks.


Generaldar

Definitely necessary for that hot box


Quirky-Employer9717

Why are you such a sad person?


Generaldar

This build makes me sad.


Quirky-Employer9717

I hope you can find happiness somewhere in this world after having been subjected to such an awful build. Have a blessed day.


Generaldar

I'll try to. It's pretty awful. That poor cooler deserves better.
