Noctua - Bild

Product discontinued. Successor model: NH-U12F

Thanks to the 4 Dual-Heat-Pipes, 38 aluminium cooling fins with a total surface area of more than 5000cm and soldered joints for optimal heat-transfer, the Noctua NH-U12 achieves superior cooling performance with a 120mm fan of your choice - no matter whether used for super-silent or ultra-high-performance cooling!

Check out the Video-Review of the NH-U coolers by ADSLZone.net (in Spanish, 61MB)!



4 Dual-Heatpipes for optimal heat absorption
The 4 u-shaped Dual-Heat-Pipes have a huge contact area with the copper base to efficiently absorb the CPU's heat. They form 8 risers to spread the heat throughout the fins.

38 aluminium cooling fins for optimal heat dissipation
Thanks to a surface area of more than 5000cm, the cooling fins dissipate the heat extremely fast. Both the choice of aluminium and the fins' shape and spacing allow for outstanding cooling performance even with silent fans.

Soldered joints for optimal heat-transfer
Unlike many other coolers, whose heatpipes are stuck to the base and the fins, the Noctua NH-U12 possesses high-grade soldered joints to ensure optimal heat transfer.

Screwless fan-mount including anti-vibration strips
The choice of fan is all yours: 120mm fans provide excellent results regardless of whether silence or performance is your primary concern. Attaching the fan with the steel clips is a child's play and doesn't even require a screwdriver. The supplied anti-vibration strips minimize vibrations transmitted to the cooler and hence allows for extra quietness.

Universal fit for socket 478, LGA, K8, easy installation, thermal paste
The NH-U12 fits Intel socket 478 and LGA 775 as well as AMD K8. The mounting mechanism using a backplate and spring-loaded screws is as easy as it is secure thanks to the detailed step-by-step installation guide. In addition to the mounting hardware, the package contains a syringe of high-grade thermal paste.

16.09.2014 - 4Tech.be NH-D15
Test verdict: "Noctua heeft met de NH-D15 weer laten zien dat het heer en meester is op het gebied van luchtkoeling. De NH-D15 weet ontzettend goede prestaties neer te zetten op zowel het gebied van koeling als geluidsproductie. Hij weet in ieder geval veel waterkoelsetjes te evenaren of zelfs voorbij te streven." (Henk van Hest, 4Tech.be)
