Noctua introduces NH-U12S and NH-U14S single tower CPU coolers

Vienna, April 8th 2013 - Noctua today presented the latest models of its award-winning NH-U series of quiet single tower CPU coolers: Whereas the NH-U12S comes equipped with the renowned NF-F12 120mm fan and succeeds the highly popular NH-U12P SE2, the NH-U14S is the series' first 140mm model and uses the new NF-A15 140mm fan. Both models feature a new, slim design that ensures easy RAM access and maximum compatibility with tall memory modules.

"The original NH-U12 and NH-U9 were the first Noctua products we brought to the market and the NH-U series has been a cornerstone of our success ever since", explains Mag. Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). "Representing the next generation of this venerable legacy, the new NH-U12S and NH-U14S are the result of almost 10 years of continuous development and optimisation. Both models mark a significant improvement in performance, convenience and compatibility."

Due to its fine-tuned design and the class-leading NF-F12 120mm FocusedFlow™ fan, the NH-U12S further improves the renowned quiet cooling performance of the NH-U12P SE2. The NH-U14S features a large, six heatpipe design and comes equipped with the NF-A15 140mm fan. This allows it to best the quiet cooling performance of all other U-series coolers, making it Noctua's most efficient single tower cooler to date.

Both the NH-U12S' NF-F12 and the NH-U14S' NF-A15 fan support PWM for convenient automatic speed control through the mainboard. In addition, the maximum fan speed can be reduced from 1500 to 1200rpm using the supplied Low-Noise Adaptor for even quieter operation.

The NH-U12S and NH-U14S feature a new, slim layout that has been conceived to provide maximum RAM compatibility: With a fin depth of only 45mm, the NH-U12S will not overhang the RAM slots even with two fans installed. This gives the user full access to the memory modules on all current CPU sockets and guarantees 100% compatibility with tall heatspreaders or optional memory fans. The NH-U14S features a 52mm slim design tailor-made for LGA2011 and does not overhang the RAM slots on this platform.

Topped off with the trusted, pro-grade SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system, Noctua's proven NT-H1 thermal compound and full 6 years manufacturer's warranty, the NH-U12S and NH-U14S are complete premium quality solutions that combine superb performance, high compatibility and quiet operation.

Pricing and availability
The NH-U12S and NH-U14S will be available shortly at suggested retail prices of EUR 59.90 / USD 64.90 (NH-U12S) and EUR 69.90 / USD 74.90 (NH-U14S).

Test verdict: "المشتت NH-U12S من شركة نوكتشوا Noctua ربما لا يُعد أفضل الخيارات في فئته السعرية من حيث الأداء إلا أنه الأفضل من حيث هدوء الصوت، ولكن يُنصح بهذا المشتت لمن يستعمل معالجات Haswell أو Ivy/Sandy Bridge وبالتأكيد معالجات AMD الأقل من 125W ف استهلاك الطاقة لأفضل أداء ممكن مع صوت هادئ للغاية، فنعم لازالت مشتتات نوكتشوا لفئة مُعينة من المستخدمين الذين يودون الصوت المنخفض للغاية مع مشتت هوائي جيد، ولذلك فالمشتت يستحق أن تستبدل مشتتك الاعتيادي أو الاحترافي إن كان أقل ف الأداء أو كان صوته لا يُحتمل."

Test verdict: "Mit dem NH-D15 hat Noctua einen neuen Kühler in sein Sortiment aufgenommen, welcher sich nicht nur durch seine Kühlleistung an Overclocker und Enthusiasten richtet, sondern auch durch seine Laufruhe, welche gerade über die PWM Steuerung dank der sehr guten Kühlleistung erzieht werden kann auch für Silentliebhaber das Maß aller Dinge darstellt."
