Noctua introduces NH-U12P CPU cooler

Vienna, November 20th, 2007 - Noctua presented today the latest model of its successful NH-U series: The NH-U12P is equipped with the new NF-P12 fan as well as the NT-H1 premium-grade thermal compound and continues the legacy of Noctua's classic NH-U coolers, which won over 150 awards and recommendations from leading international websites and magazines.

"We continually work to further improve our successful products", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "The NH-U12P doesn't only provide better mainboard compatibility, but thanks to the use of the new NF-P12 fan as well as the high-grade NT-H1 compound, the NH-U12P also brings its predecessors' much-acclaimed quiet cooling performance to a whole new level!"

While retaining the successful design and the well-proven SecuFirm™ mounting system, the NH-U12P offers improved compatibility with mainboards featuring very high chipset coolers thanks to its raised fin-stack. The NH-U12P comes with SecuFirm™ mounting-kits for socket LGA 775, AM2 and AM2+. Mounting-kits for Intel Xeon CPUs are available on request.

Fitted with the high-grade thermal compound NT-H1 and the new NF-P12 fan, which has been specifically developed for high-impedance applications like CPU cooling, the NH-U12P is a further improvement on the award-winning performance of the NH-U12F. Due to the psycho-acoustic optimizations of the NF-P12 fan, the NH-U12P provides the same degree of quietness that has made the NH-U series so popular among Silent-PC enthusiasts. The fan's well-proven SSO-Bearing guarantees maximum long-term stability and in conjunction with the NT-H1 high-end thermal compound, the NH-U12P is a quality package through and through, ensuring excellent performance and outstanding quietness for many years.

Price and availability
The NH-U12P will be available on November 28th at a recommended retail price of EUR 56.90 / USD 64.90.

Test verdict: "Im Einsatz überzeugt Noctua durch eine geringe Lautstärke und eine angemessenen Kühlleistung, vor allem aber durch das eindeutig leiseste Lager im Test. Egal wie weit wir den Lüfter, unter Nutzung einer Lüftersteuerung mit Start-Boost, drosselten: Auch bei minimaler Luftbewegung können wir keine Nebengeräusche heraushören."
