The NA-HC4 chromax.white heatsink covers are an add-on accessory for Noctua’s award-winning NH-D15, NH-D15S and NH-D15 SE-AM4 CPU coolers. Made from high-quality aluminium with white powder-coating finish, they allow users to give the cooler a sleek snow-white look that is right at home in all-white or black and white builds. Thanks to the easy, straightforward installation, changing the looks of your NH-D15(S) cooler only takes a few minutes and doesn’t even require taking it off the CPU. Combined with chromax.black.swap edition NF-A15, fans and their white anti-vibration pads, the NA-HC2 chromax.white covers give you the option to turn your NH-D15(S) into a black and white powerhouse that looks just as great as it cools.
Caution: The covers increase the height of the heatsink by 5mm (from 160 to 165mm) and the width by 3mm (from 150mm to 153mm). Please make sure that your case offers sufficient clearance and that the covers don’t make contact with any other components such as PCIe cards!

NA-HC4 chromax.white Review

A Noctua tipikusan az a gyártó, aki nem úszik az árral, ha a szükség úgy hozza. A folyadékhűtéses megoldások megjelenésével nem próbálta felvenni a harcot a konkurens gyártókkal, hanem inkább a meglévő léghűtéses processzorhűtőit tökéletesítette annak érdekében, hogy a vásárlók igényeit maximálisan kielégítsék. A komplett processzorhűtők mellett a ventilátorok terén is sokak számára bosszankodásra adott okot, hogy a kezdetek óta barna színösszeállítást használja a gyártó. A Noctua aztán engedett a gyeplőn és piacra dobta Redux sorozatát, valamint az industrialPPC sorozatét, mely színben eltért a megszokottól.
Test verdict: "Ezen is tovább lépve aztán létrejött a chromax elnevezés, mely olyan termékeket gyűjt össze melyekkel más színbe öltözhetnek a processzorhűtők, ventilátorok és egyéb kiegészítők." (Kocsis Bence, Rendszerigény.hu)

منذ فترة بسيطة قدمت مراجعة لمشتتات Noctua الهوائية الشهيرة و كان لى تعليق بسيط ان منذ عام 2007 اى عشرة سنوات لم تقم Noctua بأى تغيير يشمل الشككل او اللون على مشتتاتها الهوائية فهى بنفس الالوان البنى و البيج . و قد كان الرد سريع من Noctua ان لديها لمسة جمالية و لا اروع مع الاحتفاظ بنفس قورة الاداء
Test verdict: "فقد اطلقت Noctua مجموعة كبيرة من الاكسسوارات التى يمكن ان تغير شكل المشتتات الهوائية الخاصة بها و تعطيها اللمسة الجمالية و هذه الاكسسوارات قد اتت تحت اسم Chromax و التى تتيح للمستخدم تغيير شكل و الوان المشتت الخاص به و البداية كانت تخص كلا المشتتان NH-D15 و NH-U12S من خلال عدة اغطية تغطى جسم المشتت بالكامل بعدة الوان و ايضا المراوح السوداء اللون و التى يأتى معها القطع المطاطية المضادة للصدمات و بعدة الوان و كابلات تطويل كابل توصيل المراوح و ايضا كابل لتشغيل مراوح مزدوجة على رأس واحد و سوف نقدم لكم هذه المنتجات تفصيليا فى هذا الموضوع."

NA-HC4 chromax.white Review

Ihr könnt es anhand der Bilder selber für euch entscheiden, aber wie wir finden, ist es Noctua gelungen, frischen Wind in ihre Produkte zu bringen. Der Wiedererkennungswert wird jetzt natürlich signifikant sinken, es ist kein beige/braun mehr zu finden bei den chromax Produkten. Allerdings werden jetzt nicht mehr nur performance-orientierte Kunden zu Noctua Produkten greifen, sondern es wird eine ganz neue Käuferschaft angesprochen. Gerade wo doch sehr viele Gehäuse auch mit Seitenfenster oder gehärtetem Glas ausgeliefert werden, will man natürlich sein System bestmöglich in Szene setzen.
Test verdict: "Noctua hat den Schritt endlich gewagt und bietet jetzt auch die Möglichkeit, etwas Farbe ins Spiel zu bringen." (Dennis Heinze, hardwarepoint.net)

NA-HC4 chromax.white Review

Gli sdoppiatori e le prolunghe sono qualitativamente ottimi e utili da usare sia con le ventole di questa serie sia in qualsiasi altro PC. Le ventole della serie Chromax vantano la qualità che contraddistingue Noctua ma molto attente al design, con colorazione nera e la presenza dei pad colorati a spezzare e adattarle a qualsiasi build. Per ultimi le bellissime armature per i dissipatori! Grazie ad esse la personalizzazione della propria configurazione fa un grande balzo in avanti, permettendo inoltre con alcuni modelli di poter cambiare in corso d’opera la colorazione. Insomma un altro ottimo lavoro del produttore austriaco.
Test verdict: "La serie Chromax di Noctua è una vera e propria ventata di aria fresca da parte del produttore austriaco. Siamo abituati a considerare i loro prodotti qualitativamente superiori ma con design non proprio in corso coi tempi, da adesso quando parleremo di Noctua potremmo pensare anche ad un design “bello” e capace di adattarsi ai canoni estetici oramai richiesti dal mercato."

NA-HC4 chromax.white Review

This level of customization is definitely expensive but it is worth it. Particularly for those who want to stick with the air cooler or even would want to use Chromax line of the fans and cables on the radiators for color customization. When it comes to the air coolers, the debate is on. Form over function or vice-versa. With the recent trends in the market there is a new definition which is Form with Function and this is where the Noctua has turned the table around for their coolers with their new Chromax add-ons which have allowed the users to color customize their fans, color customize their heatsinks to the extent that even the fan extension cables and the y-splitter cables are available in 6 colors for this level of the customization. The quality is top notch and why would it not be. After all, they are coming from the Noctua.
Test verdict: "With this level of the color customization, Noctua has turned their coolers and the fans all around and do we not love it, already! There is no surprise that the Noctua Chromax lineup has won our Must Have award." (Nauman Siddique, EnosTech.com)

NA-HC4 chromax.white Review

Well, it's been a long time coming, but Noctua have finally realised that not everybody loves the plain aluminium aesthetic of their heat sinks, and the diarrhea brown coupled with prosthetic limb beige of their standard fans. yes it's taken a while, but my God have they hit the ball out of the park with the Chromax Range. You can now get black, white and colour swap Black heat sink covers for the top end Noctua Heat sinks, as well as their leading fans in black with a choice of colour coordinating anti vibration pads. Not only that, but you can top off the whole buiild with a choice of six colours for fan splitter and fan extension cables. We're not expecting the products in the range to be dirt cheap, but what we have learned is that with Noctua, you get the quality you pay for, so yeah, the fans may cost a few quid more than your average fan, but it is, after all, a Noctua fan.
Test verdict: "Thanks Noctua, Thanks a bunch!" (Gary Wain, Overclock3D.net)

NA-HC4 chromax.white Review

Have you ever thought about customizing the appearance of your CPU cooler's heatsink? Some cooler manufacturers would paint their heatsinks before shipping to customers, but most of them are only available in black or white. That's what the new Noctua Chromax heatsink covers (NA-HC) are able to offer you the options to pimp up your boring-looking CPU cooler.
Test verdict: "Overall, the Chromax heatsink covers can obviously make your CPU cooler more personalized and customizable. The installation is both simple and fast, with the easy-to-read user manual. You can even pair it with the Chromax.black.swap fans to completely match the whole cooler to your PC build's color scheme. The build quality of the heatsink covers is exceptional with a rigid aluminum construction and beautiful glossy/matte metal finish." (Chan Long Yin, Unboxing Treatment)

NA-HC4 chromax.white Review

Comprare questo dissipatore per poi comprare una delle cover sopra citate e per poi comprare una ventola da sostituire, possiamo arrivare ad un prezzo piuttosto esoso. L’unico consiglio che posso darvi, se proprio volete cambiare le ventole di questo dissipatore, è di acquistare una sola ventola Noctua NF-A15 HS-PWM chromax.black.swap. Il dissipatore Noctua NH-D15 ha originariamente due ventole, ma anche se ne acquistate una sola da collocare al centro del dissipatore, in realtà le temperature massime saranno solo di 2 o 3 gradi in più ma rispermierete il costo di una seconda ventola. Se volete acquistare questo dissipatore nuovo, sappiate che uno tra i più potenti prodotti di raffreddamento ad aria per processori Intel e AMD. Poi, se vorrete cambiare la sua estetica con l’acquisto di una cover chromax e con l’acquisto di una ventola chromax da 140mm, la scelta è solo vostra.
Test verdict: "Cover e ventola per dissipatore Noctua NH-D15 della nuova serie chromax per aggiungere più colore a questo pluri-premiato dissipatore." (TechUniverse.it)
