is it OK to run Noctua nh d15 with Only middle fan ?

when I install the front fan the case cover is not fully close

can I only install the middle fan ?

I have 10700k

will my cpu overheat ?

On stock settings, won't overheat as it's effectivelly a single fan cooler, with a second tower also being cooled.

So it's like a high end single-tower cooler.

 

But no guarantee from me..

... but I'm no expert

thanks 

I will Not overclock anything

my question is

if I only install the middle fan the air will only cool the back tower

the tower above my ram which I want to remove the fan from it will have no air to cool it

is that ok ?

It will work. The second fan only helps a few °C. It'll be maybe ~5°C warmer.

The middle fan still pulls air through the first tower.

Don't know exaclty what you mean but just install the middle fan between the towers but onto the back tower. Just like it would be when using both fans.

do I need also to remove the y splitter and connect the single middle fan directly to the motherboard

or is it ok to leave it out hanging ?

You can do either, but if you want to use another fan on the cooler in the future, connecting the y splitter would be preferable. Just make sure when you connect the middle fan to the y splitter that you connected it to the part that also the fan to be PWM controlled

Most likely yes. You can read you motherboard manual for more details.

You can just leave out the splitter and connect the fan directly to the mobo CPU_FAN header.
