Noctua Displays Next-Gen NH-D15 G2 CPU Cooler, Seasonic PRIME PSUs In Noctua Flavors, Thermosiphon & NVIDIA GH200 Solutions

Noctua has displayed its next-gen NH-D15 G2 CPU cooler alongside a range of cool products such as Seasonic Noctua PSUs, Thermosiphon & GH200 solutions.

Noctua Unveils Next-Gen CPU Coolers & Fans Including The Flagship NH-D15 G2 But Not Hyping The Release Date

Noctua has a vast array of next-generation cooling solutions displayed at its Computex 2024 booth. We were given an in-depth run-down on the cooling solutions, when we can expect them, and what the pricing would be like by Jakob Dellinger. Starting right off the bat, we were told that the next-generation NH-D15 G2 CPU cooler will have a price of around $149 US. The price increase over the NH-D15 is not only due to the new 140mm fans but also due to the fact that a lot of engineering hours went into designing the heatsink.

Noctua also briefed us on its brand new Thermosiphon cooling project which is being made in collaboration with Calyos and will come in 240mm and 360mm variants. The Thermosiphon cooler makes use of gravity and flows the liquid through the internal assembly which turns into vapor when heated. That vapor flows up to the main radiator where condensation does its job & turns back to a liquid state. Noctua states that it first wants to target 150-400W CPU applications but is also open to working on similar designs for data centers and even GPUs. But we will first have to wait for the launch of this solution in the market before we get those.

Besides that, Noctua also displayed a super-massive cooling solution designed for NVIDIA’s GH200 GPUs. This monster solution features two NH-U12A heatsinks which are combined together in one singular package. Lastly, we have to mention the very impressive Seasonic PRIME series which now comes in Noctua edition flavor. This new model has much lower noise output, and increased cooling for the internal components, and should be priced around 30 USD higher than the standard model.
