Does it? Haven't seen any tests.
Considering it only matches the NH-C14 here...I'm not sure.
Edit: looks like it does
Just get whichever of the 3 (NH-D14/15 and the CNPS12X) is the least expensive. Although I generally have this sneaking suspicion that most people who buy these coolers really don't need it, especially with how Intel has been pushing efficiency a lot for the last few architectures. I think most people were able to get some really high OCs off just a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO/+ on Sandy Bridge chips.
