According to CCC it costs that most of the time. I'd assume recent high was caused by higher demand as many people had been working from home.

Regular price, even though they are good. It makes installing GFX cards a nightmare!

Better off getting an AIO water cooler

This is the D15S which is angled in a way to not cover the first PCIe slot. That being said, the normal NH-D15 would work as well if your top slot is a PCIe 1x.

And I've had gnarly experiences with AIOs leaking to want a big hunk of aluminum and heat pipes in my expensive rig and losing a few MHz.

Which AIOs have you had leak on you? That sounds like a nightmare.

For $10 more you can get dual fan version of this amazing cooler. Last year, I research various cooling solution for my gaming system and D15 came first, as quiet, premium quality cooler.

Yup leaking is always a possibility. Happened to me and I have been all air ever since. Personally I cannot stand the pump noise. It’s not so much the db but the annoyance of the noise. There is a word for that but I cannot remember what it is.

I replaced my AIO cooler with a D15 and I swear it's louder. So... it's quiet for an air cooler, but not quiet quiet.

I've always gone air cooling as well. Water cooling is more expensive, noisier, and doesn't last as long on average - all to reduce temperatures slightly or squeeze out an extra MHz of frequency.

Personally I think this beefy cooler is overkill, but it's Noctua so never a bad choice. I've never had a problem with my cheap Hyper 212+ that I've been using for like 10 years (with a Noctua fan). A cheap cooler with good case cooling/airflow will do the job unless you're really brutalizing your CPU at a high overclock 24/7.

I have it and it’s great. Can’t recommend more. I also comes with accessories in case you wanna install a second fan.

Would recommend going with AIO instead. Had one of these in black and returned it. Had it with 3800x and temperatures were high + access to memory was blocked. AIO(Corsair with two fans) provided better temperatures and also had zero issues with accessing other components.
