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: "Overall, I believe Noctua makes an excellent product. There really isn’t anything I can complain about except for the price, and even then the price is understandable. If you need good air flow, low noise and have a small form factor case that needs some better fans, I could definitely recommend what Noctua has to offer here." (Josh Jackson, PureOverclock.com)

Test verdict: "Given these height and footprint size restrictions, the Noctua NH-U9S is a pretty quiet heatsink that offers very good thermal performance in the sub-125mm tall heatsink category, making it an excellent choice for PCs which are severely space limited. The results are enhanced by adding a second fan, as we've shown over the course of this review. Couple that with awesome build quality and a 6 year warranty and it's not hard to recommend this cooler." (Max Page, FrostyTech.com)

Test verdict: "Das Ergebnis dieses Reviews zeigt, wie effizient die Redux tatsächlich arbeiten. Auch wenn es sich hierbei nur um 0,15 bis 4,05°C handelt. Die Lautstärke ist bei voller Drehzahl im Vergleich zum TY-147A wesentlich geringer [...]. Für einen angemessenen Preis von ca. 13 Euro bietet Noctua einen erstklassigen und sehr qualitativen Lüfter." (Aliriza Tasdemir, Hardwareluxx Community)
