Noctua presents NH-C12P 6 heat pipe cooler

Vienna, May 5th 2008 - Noctua presented today its new premium class CPU cooler NH-C12P. Being equipped with 6 heat pipes and the award-winning NF-P12 120mm fan, the NH-C12P achieves excellent performance and outstanding quietness of operation. The down-facing c-type design allows for lower height and also provides additional cooling for motherboard components through two Airflow-Gaps.

"Given the trend towards powerful, HD ready multimedia systems and HTPCs in compact desktop cases, the demand for quiet high-end CPU coolers with lower height is growing and growing", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "Our new NH-C12P is a premium class quiet cooler that offers the same excellent level of performance as our much acclaimed NH-U12P at a height of only 114mm."

This is made possible by the use of 6 heat pipes as well as a relatively wide fin spacing that guarantees optimal heat dissipation even at low fan speeds. Thanks to its two large Airflow-Gaps that provide additional cooling for near-socket motherboard components, the NH-C12P is perfectly suited for use in poorly ventilated desktop cases.

Just like the successful NH-U12P, the NH-C12P is equipped with Noctua's NF-P12 premium fan that ensures outstanding cooling performance at minimal noise levels and has received more than 50 recommendations from leading international websites and magazines since its introduction in November. The premium bundle is topped off by Noctua's award-winning NT-H1 high-end thermal compound, making the NH-C12P a total quality package for the highest demands.

Price and availability
The NH-C12P is available immediately at a recommended price of EUR 59.90 / USD 69.90.

Test verdict: "Lo han conseguido. Lo que parecía imposible ha sucedido, y Noctua ha logrado mejorar el NH-D14 con este NH-D15. No solo han mejorado su rendimiento térmico, sino que han creado un disipador prácticamente inaudible incluso bajo máxima carga, con una instalación que no puede ser más sencilla, y además han solucionado los problemas de compatibilidad con módulos de memoria RAM de disipadores grandes que achacaba su predecesor. Dicho esto, solo podemos levantarnos y aplaudir: ¡Bravo, Noctua! (Rodrigo Alonso, HardZone.es)

Test verdict: "I was really surprised that the Noctua could keep such a low temperature, but I ran the test three times and reapplied TIM every time looking for what I did wrong, but I couldn't find anything odd. As for the load temperatures, all I can say is I have a huge smile on my face still." (Ambrosidou Nat, XtremeSystems.org)
