I need to buy an air cooler for my 2700x, because is running quiet hot here in the summer ( Spain).
Both of coolers are around 80€ at Amazon.
DRP4: 3 years warranty, quiter, better looking
NH-D15S: 6 years warranty, a little bit louder than DRP4, almost same cooling performance, ugly as hell.
I think both of them are good quality products but 6 year warranty is too sweet for me.
What do you think guys?
Also NH-D15 is not viable due to Ram clearance(TridenZ)
I dont want to expend more than 80€ so a good AIO is not an option i think, but you can suggest me good AIOs if you want.

The D15S is the better performer.

Honestly, when it comes to high-end coolers, I wouldn't worry about the warranty aspect.
The "cooler" itself will last a heck of a lot longer than either warranty period, the fans are where a problem could theoretically occur.
Given an equal quality fan might be $20-$25 total, in say 5+ years.... that's probably cheaper than shipping a cooler back to the manufacturer.

I've had my NH-D15 for probably 5 years now, but I did replace the fans with the Chromax replacements.

Might be worth checking out the U12A from Noctua too though. It's smaller, but it's an admirable performer too...
