Noctua Introduces The Chromax.black CPU Coolers
Noctua today introduced the all-black versions of its NH-D15, NH-U12S and NH-L9i CPU coolers.
Staying true to the formula of the original models, the new chromax.black versions with their black fans and black coated heatsinks combine the same quiet cooling performance with a stealth look. The NH-D15 chromax.black and NH-U12S chromax.black will initially be exclusively available in a Linus Tech Tips limited edition that includes extra orange anti-vibration pads and custom fan stickers.
The new NH-D15 chromax.black, NH-U12S chromax.black and NH-L9i chromax.black are identical to the regular models except for the colour: Featuring black coated heatsinks, black fans with black anti-vibration-pads, black fan clips or fan screws and black mounting parts, they are literally black from head to toe. Thanks to thoroughgoing optimisations of the coating material and process, the chromax.black models provide the samequiet cooling performance as their regular, non-coated counterparts.
Teaming up with youtuber Linus Sebastian from Linus Tech Tips, the first 5000 pieces of NH-D15 chromax.black and NH-U12S chromax.black sold through Noctua’s official Amazon and eBay stores will be an exclusive Linus Tech Tips limited edition that includes extra orange anti-vibration pads and custom Linus Tech Tips fan stickers. The Linus Tech Tips limited editions have a limited volume and will only be available via Noctua’s official Amazon and eBay stores while stock lasts. The non-limited versions of the NH-D15 chromax.black and NH-U12S chromax.black will start selling via Amazon as soon as the Linus Tech Tips limited editions are sold out and via other sales partners at the end of October.
In addition to the three new chromax.black cooler models, Noctua also introduced the new NA-SAVP3 anti-vibration pads in black, blue, green, red, white and yellow. These pads are compatible with all NF-A15 line fans such as those pre-installed on the NH-D15 chromax.black, thereby enabling users to colour-customise their coolers for individual build cooler schemes. The NF-F12 fan on the NH-U12S chromax.black can be colour-customised using the existing NA-AVP1 pads. In addition, both models are compatible with the NA-HC1/NA-HC2 (NH-U12S) and NA-HC3/NA-HC4 (NH-D15) heatsink covers as well as chromax line NA-EC1 and NA-YC1 cables that allow for further visual customisation.
