Vienna, June 12th 2013 - Noctua took last week's Computex Taipei trade show as an opportunity to give an update on its cooperation with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) specialists RotoSub®, exhibiting a prototype of what is going to be world's first CPU cooler with integrated ANC as well as an early prototype of an ANC fan for watercooling radiators. In addition to its new ANC prototypes, Noctua's booth gave stage to a novel diamond-composite base plate for CPU coolers as well as a series of other fan and heatsink prototypes. Last but not least, Noctua gave an exclusive insight on its upcoming 140mm dual tower CPU cooler, industrial fans and redux edition fan models.
Introduced in fall 2012, Noctua's A-series fans have already received more than 100 awards and recommendations from the international press. At Computex, Noctua showed prototypes of the upcoming 200, 92 and 80mm models which are about to complement the series and will share all its key features such as Flow Acceleration Channels, AAO frames and SSO2 bearings.
Another new addition to Noctua's line-up of premium quality quiet fans will be a range of ruggedised industrial models that feature a fibre-glass reinforced polyamide construction and IP52 class water- and dust protection for heavy-duty applications as well as a new 3-phase motor design with six poles that provides further improvements in running smoothness, even lower vibrations and further reduced power consumption.
In addition to the upcoming A-series and industrial fans, Noctua gave a first glimpse of its upcoming ‘project redux', a new edition of proven, award-winning models such as the NF-S12B and NF-P14 in streamlined, more accessibly priced packages. While the new A-series and industrial fans are scheduled for a release in Q1 2014, Noctua aims to release the first redux models in Q4 2013. In order to visually distinguish the new industrial and redux edition fans, industrial models will come in black and redux models will come in a light/dark grey colour scheme that mimics Noctua's original fan colours using two different shades of grey.
Noctua's new CPU coolers displayed at Computex ranged from compatibility updates to the existing NH-L9 low profile models over a more powerful 65mm tall version and a new 92mm D-type prototype to an updated 140mm dual tower cooler that will further improve the NH-D14's renowned quiet cooling performance. The NH-L9 compatibility updates are already being implemented with current production and the new 140mm dual tower is scheduled for release in Q4 2013. The 92mm model is planned for Q1 2014.
One of the highlights of this year's line-up was a novel heatsink base plate with a diamond-copper composite insert. Made from pure diamond and copper powder by state-of-the-art hot pressing technology, this material offers a thermal conductivity of about 500W/mK, which is 25% higher than pure copper.
The Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) prototypes exhibited at Computex demonstrated the progress Noctua has made in its ANC project with RotoSub®. While the 120mm ANC fan for watercooling radiators is still at an earlier stage, development on the 140mm CPU cooler project is almost completed. Based on the award-winning NH-D14, the upcoming R-ANC cooler promises to deliver substantial performance improvements over Noctua's current flagship model. Noctua is now working to implement the RotoSub® ANC system in mass production and aims for a release in Q2/Q3 2014.
Designed in Austria, Noctua's premium cooling components are internationally renowned for their superb quietness, exceptional performance and thoroughgoing quality. Having received more than 3000 awards and recommendations from leading hardware websites and magazines, Noctua's fans and heatsinks are chosen by more than a hundred thousand satisfied customers around the globe.

Test verdict: "NH-L9X65 si è dimostrato fin da subito all’ altezza del marchio a cui appartiene, con questo prodotto, Noctua ha voluto dare una risposta a tutti i colori i quali ritenessero le prestazioni del NH-L9a insufficienti continuando ad offrire la medesima compatibilità e le dimensioni compatte perfettamente integrabili in qualsiasi sistema htpc o case Small Form Factor, tutto questo mantenendo un prezzo accessibile a molti, ed è per questo che abbiamo deciso di premiare il produttore ancora una volta con il nostro Techanthology Gold Value."

Test verdict: "Noctua NH-L9x65 to wprawdzie bardzo kompaktowy cooler CPU ale mimo to jest on
godnym następcą modelu NH-L9. Po pierwsze oferowana przez niego
wydajność już bez problemu wystarczy do zastosowań przy
chłodzeniu nawet wydajniejszych procesorów (a przynajmniej jeśli
chodzi o jednostki 4-rdzeniowe). Po drugie producent nie rozdziela już tego modelu
coolera na wersję dla AMD i wersję dla Intel a zatem jest to rozwiązanie
zdecydowanie bardziej uniwersalne." (Łukasz Talkowski, BestPCInfo.pl)
