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 5000cm² 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 5000cm², 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.

28.11.2014 - mod-your-case.de NH-D9L
Test verdict: "Mit dem NH-D9L geht Noctua einen etwas anderen Weg als bei dem kürzlich getesteten NH-U9S und kreiert einen sehr kleinen Twin-Tower-Kühler, welcher in der Theorie mit bis zu drei Lüftern bestückt werden kann. Durch diesen Aufbau ist Noctua ein sehr guter Spagat zwischen einer guten Kühlleistung und einer sehr hohen Kompatibilität gelungen. Die Kühlleistung liegt trotz der im Vergleich zum NH-U9S geringeren Masse und dem mittig montierten Lüfter auf einem sehr guten Niveau." (Patrick Seus, mod-your-case.de)

27.11.2014 - mod-your-case.de NH-U9S
Test verdict: "Mit dem NH-U9S hat Noctua wieder einmal gezeigt, dass man ein gutes Produkt mit viel Entwicklungsarbeit noch besser machen kann. Dies bezieht sich nicht nur auf die Kühlleistung des neuen NH-U9S, sondern auch auf die Kompatibilität." (Patrick Seus, mod-your-case.de)

Test verdict: "After I spent some time having fun with the biggest fans included in the series I can say that I am really impressed to see the classic NF-P14 revived in the shape of two brand new, much cheaper versions with absolutely renewed appearance and much better performance."
