I'd say it's easy, but then I've seen people struggling to mount their fans correctly so it's hard to say.

Depending on the AIO, a 360mm one could outperform a NH-D15, but it will definitely be louder. Note that large air coolers have RAM height limits

mounting fans onto tower coolers is easy if you have at least 2 usable fingernails ?

The D15 was probably one of the easiest coolers I've ever mounted.

I have to agree with this..

 

OP, this huge cooler is generally very easy to install, except you're going to install it inside a small case like me which make it little difficult to put the fans on the heatsink, but overall, it's easy to install..

I would be putting it in a Corsair 570x

Noctua has probably easiest mounting in air coolers. Haven't done D15, but I got U14S which I've installed while mobo is still inside the case.

It should be easy

Are you referring to the NH-D15 or NH-D14? The NH-D14's fan mounting hardware is difficult to work with whereas the NH-D15 uses pretty standard clips that are about as easy as it gets for attaching fans. https://youtu.be/BnmeRdpNYjE?t=129

 

 

The NH-D15 is among the easiest to install when it comes to installing a dual tower cooler.

It's the same mounting hardware for both coolers. The screws are just between the two towers for the NH-D15 as opposed to just on the sides of the single tower. for the NH-U14S.

Talking about screwing fans into the case :P
