The era of the Noctua NH-D15 is over. Today’s CPUs are hotter than ever, and old favourites like Noctua’s NH-D15 are showing their age.

DeepCool Assassin IV Specifications
DeepCool’s Assassin IV is not the company’s first high-end CPU cooler. As you can tell from the name of this heatsink, the Assassin IV is the company’s 4th generation CPU cooler design. Out of the box the heatsink supports all of the latest consumer-grade CPU sockets from AMD and Intel.
The Assassin IV is a dual-fan heatsink that is designed with VRAM compatibility in mind, including two pre-installed fans, seven heatpipes, and two fin towers. The heatsink also ships with a bracket that can allow users to install a third fan, though this added fan could limit this heatsink’s RAM compatibility.
Out of the box, this heatsink can be used with all DDR4/DDR5 RAM kits, as even the tallest DRAM kits will not hit this heatsink. This heatsink also ships with a screwdriver and a small tube of thermal paste, and this tube of thermal paste is large enough to for multiple heatsink installations.
