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: "Po pravilu, kao i svaki drugi sjajan Noctua proizvod, tako ćemo i ova dva kulera nagraditi sa 'PCAXE Diamond' priznanjem. U pratnji te nagrade dolazi i "PCAXE Advanced Design" jer su oba kulera dizajnirana tako da nemaju otisak veći od 95x95cm, zbog čega nude neverovatno otvorenu kompatibilnost." (Atila Gobor,

Resultado del análisis: "With the popularity of MiniITX motherboards there has been a push for companiles to make smaller computer cases. As these cases shrink to take advantage of the smaller form factor it becomes increasingly difficult to find a good aftermarket heatsink that not only cools well but, can fit in a half height computer chassis. The Noctua NH-L9x65 is designed to take advantage of this niche and offers up a viable replacement for the OEM coolers from Intel and AMD." (Dennis Garcia,
