The Deepcool Assassin III Plans To Bump Off The Noctua NH-D15
This Assassin Doesn’t Depend On Stealth
Deepcool looks to unseat the mighty tan Noctua NH-D15 with their somewhat stylish Assassin II dual fan heatsink. It is slightly bigger, at 161x140x165 mm and 1.464 kg so make sure your case can handle it before inserting it into your motherboard. Kitguru complimented Deepcool on their fast four step installation, mounting heatsinks if perhaps not as difficult as it once was but it is still good to see continual improvements.
Drop by to see if it can outperform the old standby, as well as some of the newer cool kids on the block in the full review.
Deepcool claim the Assassin III should perform better than the Noctua by at least 1°C in a typical case installation scenario at 200W TDP. This may sound like a big claim, but you must remember the NH-D15 was released way back in 2014, so we would hope thermal transfer technology has moved on since then.
8 mm heatpipes or bust!
Never would have guessed a larger heatisnk would cool better 😉 lol. I’m just waiting for the all black Noctua heatsinks to come out.
