Mounting Noctua NH-D15 to AM4 motherboard

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm getting an ASRock X470 Taichi Ultimate for a Ryzen 2700x. I will be cooling it using a Noctua NH-D15. I need to know if the correct mounting hardware is included with the Noctua D15, or if I need to order the mounting hardware from Noctua. I don't have the motherboard yet, so I cannot tell for myself. I ordered the standard D15, not the AM4 special edition.

it should be. Even if it somehow doesnt, you can get them from Noctua directly just by showing them your purchase invoice.


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

Noctua does sell an AM4 bracket and it works fine as it does with mine.  I got mine from amazon though you can definitely get one directly from noctua as well

Okay, so am I correct in thinking that AM4 mounting hardware doesn't come in the box by default?

I have seen some in MicroCenter that sell it with the AM4 mounting but it clearly says it on the box.  I can't get to the noctua site right now but I would be surprised if they don't sell a package that comes with the AM4 mount though it should say it on the box.

If the product page on store didn't say it comes, then you can't assume that it does. But like said, Noctua will send you hardware for free when you provide proof of purchase for both cooler and CPU/mobo.

if you don't have the bracket, I'd go ahead and buy the bracket on newegg or amazon, i was poking around for my own rig and saw people saying noctua will give it for free .. however, its shipped from Austria so it may take 3-4 weeks to arrive.
