Noctua - Bild

The NH-L12 is a low-profile quiet cooler designed for use in small form factor cases and HTPC environments. With its flexible NF-F12 (120mm) / NF-B9 (92mm) dual PWM fan setup, the NH-L12 can be configured either for full performance in dual fan mode or extra-low profile (66mm) with the top fan removed. 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.

Caution: The NH-L12 is a low-profile quiet cooler designed for use in small form factor cases and HTPC environments. While it provides first rate performance in its class, it is not suitable for overclocking and should be used with care on CPUs with more than 95W TDP (Thermal Design Power). Please consult our TDP guidelines to find out whether the NH-L12 is recommended for your CPU.

    18.12.2014 - Tom's Hardware NH-L12
    Test verdict: "For a Mini-ITX CPU cooler, the Noctua NH-L12 is somewhat of a luxury product. But like any luxury item, this heat sink comes with all the bells and whistles. While the price might be high compared to competing coolers, the NH-L12’s quality, configurability and extras make this cooler a value nonetheless." (Thomas Soderstrom, Tom's Hardware)

    18.12.2014 - hardwarepoint.net NH-U14S
    Test verdict: "Der NH-U14S ist noch leistungsfähiger als der ohnehin schon gut abschneidende Dark Rock 3 und hält somit die CPU noch kühler. Hinzu kommt das bessere Montagesystem, was am Ende auch einen teureren Einkaufspreis nach sich zieht." (Dennis Heinze, hardwarepoint.net)

    18.12.2014 - Donanimhaber Forum NH-U9S
    Test verdict: "Uzun lafın kısası ufak form faktörde bir bilgisayar topluyorsanız ve size ram,ekran kartı, kasa uyumuyla sıkıntı yaşatmayacak bir hava soğutma çözümü arıyorsanız NH-U9S ye bakmanızı mutlaka tavsiye ederim. Zira şu an piyasada pek alternatifi ortada gözükmüyor. Altı sene garantide cabası." (Ali Emre Alıcı, Donanimhaber Forum)

    17.12.2014 - HT4U.net NH-U9S
    Test verdict: "Noctuas jüngste Sprösslinge glänzen mit den üblichen Werten des Herstellers. Hervorragende Verarbeitung und Kompatibilität, einem wirklich tollen Montagesystem, bei welchem sich so mancher Anbieter eine Scheibe abschneiden könnte und einer guten Leistungsfähigkeit."
