Noctua heatsink without fan

DatSniper
 Share

I am looking for a Noctua CPU cooler for the performance of it (currently on my list is the NH-U12S), but I want to use a chromax fan because i don't like the normal fan color.
My question is that does Noctua sell just their heatsinks without the fans, OR heatsinks with preinstalled chromax fans?

Nope, but you can resell the included fans for nice prices or use them elsewhere I your case

FOLDING MONTH 2021! GOGOGO and save on some heating costs 🙂

Buy a used one for cheaper solution if you want to stay with noctua and swap to chromax.

My system specs:

CPU: Intel Core i7-8700K, 5GHz Delidded LM || CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-C14S w/ NF-A15 & NF-A14 Chromax fans in push-pull cofiguration || Motherboard: MSI Z370i Gaming Pro Carbon AC || RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2x8Gb 2666 || GPU: EVGA GTX 1060 6Gb FTW2+ DT || Storage: Samsung 860 Evo M.2 SATA SSD 250Gb, 2x 2.5" HDDs 1Tb & 500Gb || ODD: 9mm Slim DVD RW || PSU: Corsair SF600 80+ Platinum || Case: Cougar QBX + 1x Noctua NF-R8 front intake + 2x Noctua NF-F12 iPPC top exhaust + Cougar stock 92mm DC fan rear exhaust || Monitor: ASUS VG248QE || Keyboard: Ducky One 2 Mini Cherry MX Red || Mouse: Logitech G703 || Audio: Corsair HS70 Wireless || Other: XBox One S Controler

nice idea, because the heatsinks don't degrade. And yeah its noctua so also used fans are fine

A used unit will be much cheaper then swap the fan on it to a new chromax one.

 

I almost get a used NH-D15 for $53 vs $83 for new unit, in my local computer store, until someone stole my opportunity by buying it while I was considering the risk of buying used heatsink. So if you get the opportunity on used ones, grab it fast!

They don't but you could just get a different heatsink to begin with.
