    This is a beautiful piece of work. The matte black finish looks incredible, and it works just as well as the old brown brown. With the CHROMAX covers, it just BARELY fits into an NZXT h510, maybe 0.5 mm to spare. Plenty of room without the covers on.

    Looks absolutely incredible in black and terrific cooling performance. Aesthetics matter for a lot of system builders so I'm glad they joined the party. The only slight annoyance is the white part numbers on the top of the fans. Why, Noctua, why!!!

    Overkill for this CPU, but didn't want an AIO. Have used AIO's in the past without any problems, but wanted a no maintenance computer with no avoidable failure points. This thing is hugh. I didn't know it would be this big, and certainly dominates the look of the build. Wouldn't have bought it if it didn't come in the new black version. I even got the LTT “version”. I didn't think the Noctua directions were very good, so had to go to YouTube to see an installation on my CPU. Was easy after that. I'm only using the center fan as another review said it was fine, and I like the way it looks better. I can see the RAM.
    I used a Thermal Grizzly Carbonaut pad because it'll last forever unlike thermal paste. The reviews showed that it was a good solution, and easy to use. The biggest trick is to get it to stay where you put it when you put the cooler on as it slides easily.

    Everyone knows how well this cooler performs, this one is just prettier IMO. Plus, I got the LTT edition which was a nice bonus!

    Absolute beast of a cooler. It's basically silent and it has amazing cooling capacity, even though I'm only using one of the fans. As if all that wasn't enough, it's also as sexy as Danny DeVito and it's super cheap compared to similarly preforming AIO water coolers.

    Bro just ******* get it. No but really, if you're looking for something less complex and maintenance needy like water, this hands down is the best alternative by a country mile. I can't recommend it enough and after about a month or two of ownership I've never seen my cpu hit anything higher than 75C and rarely does it crack 70C at all. Like seriously. I'm fan boying a bit here but my temps legit average around 55C-60C. ******* mint.

    I wanted to go with Air Cooling because I don't do a lot of overclocking and also, I mean come on, it's Noctua.

    from completed build UPGRADED. There, I did it!

    Love the look of this. I am not a big fan of water cooling as I am nervous about maintenance so I tried to get the best cooler for the space. It fits perfectly in my H510 NZXT case. Not sure why they even sell the second fan though. I just run the middle one. The fancy rgb RAM that all of us use is way too tall if you had the second fan installed . Maybe on another motherboard. My Asus x570-F motherboard has the ram slots close to the Processor so the second fan doesn't fit.

    Huge, overbearing, sexy and cool.

    Does what its meant to very well. Easy to install which is good. Covers up much of your mainboard though so does make changing in and out top NVMe impossible so needs to be removed for this. Fits comfortably in NZXT H710.

    I used plenty Noctua Air Coolers & Fans in the past & I do like them a lot so it's naturally I would choose them again. The height of the 2nd fan will interfere w/ the G.Skill Trident Z Neo since there isn't enough room to raise the 2nd fan up so I only install the center fan and use the 2nd fan as the bottom intake fan.
