Noctua presents NH-L12 low-profile CPU cooler

Vienna, February 21st 2012 - Noctua today presented its new NH-L12 low-profile cooler for Small Form Factor cases and HTPC environments. The NH-L12 features a flexible NF-F12 (120mm) / NF-B9 (92mm) dual PWM fan setup that can be configured either for full performance in dual fan mode or extra-low profile (66mm) with the top fan removed.

"The industry trend towards Small Form Factor and Home Theatre PCs is well-established, but there's still a lack of suitable high-quality quiet CPU coolers", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "Building a powerful PC always requires a capable CPU, which in return demands a competent cooling solution. But who wants his HTPC to sound like a jet engine? This is precisely where the NH-L12 steps in."

Thanks to its exquisite dual fan setup consisting of Noctua's highly optimised NF-F12 (120mm) and NF-B9 (92mm) premium fans, the NH-L12 pushes the bar in terms of low-profile quiet cooling performance. Alternatively, the NH-L12 can also be used with the NF-B9 92mm fan only in order to reduce the overall height to 66mm. This way, the cooler is suitable for many typical µATX or Mini-ITX enclosures and ideal for whisper-quiet HTPC systems.

The NH-L12's NF-F12 and NF-B9 fans support PWM for convenient automatic speed control. In addition, the maximum fan speed can be reduced to 1200/1300rpm using the supplied Low-Noise Adaptors for even quieter operation. Bundled with the award-winning NT-H1 thermal compound and Noctua's SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system, the NH-L12 packs everything a premium quality quiet cooler needs into a highly compact package.

Price and Availability
The NH-L12 will be available immediately at a recommended retail price of EUR 49.90 / USD 59.90.

Resultado del análisis: "Køleevne Vi ligger jo ikke på samme niveau som de store modeller, men stadig godt klaret i forhold til størrelsen af køleren. Og med en ekstra blæser på, er der ingen tvivl om at de slår mange, hvis ikke alle andre kølere i denne klasse." (John Thorn, ElektronikTest.dk)

Resultado del análisis: "For a Mini-ITX CPU cooler, the Noctua NH-L12 is somewhat of a luxury product. But like any luxury item, this heat sink comes with all the bells and whistles. While the price might be high compared to competing coolers, the NH-L12’s quality, configurability and extras make this cooler a value nonetheless." (Thomas Soderstrom, Tom's Hardware)

Resultado del análisis: "Der NH-U14S ist noch leistungsfähiger als der ohnehin schon gut abschneidende Dark Rock 3 und hält somit die CPU noch kühler. Hinzu kommt das bessere Montagesystem, was am Ende auch einen teureren Einkaufspreis nach sich zieht." (Dennis Heinze, hardwarepoint.net)

Resultado del análisis: "Uzun lafın kısası ufak form faktörde bir bilgisayar topluyorsanız ve size ram,ekran kartı, kasa uyumuyla sıkıntı yaşatmayacak bir hava soğutma çözümü arıyorsanız NH-U9S ye bakmanızı mutlaka tavsiye ederim. Zira şu an piyasada pek alternatifi ortada gözükmüyor. Altı sene garantide cabası." (Ali Emre Alıcı, Donanimhaber Forum)
