More Information


The NH-U12S processor cooler from the prestigious NOCTUA is a medium sized U shaped single tower model, that has already received more than 400 awards and recommendations from the international press. The design of the cooler is built on five large heatpipe tubes for heat transfer from the CPU to the fins. In combination with a 120mm fan NF-F12 with automatic PWM support, unrivaled cooling performance with minimal noise is guaranteed. Despite these features a slender shape is maintained with a width of just 42 mm, thanks to which many motherboards will not interfere with memory modules that have a high profile cooler.

The proven SecuFirm 2 mounting system (is not included) allows for easy installation on a wide variety of CPU type from older 775 or AM2 slots to the most advanced, such as 1150 and FM2. The package also includes superior thermal grease NOCTUA NT-H1 which is a high-quality complete solution combining excellent performance, high compatibility and smooth operation.

I'm somewhat disenchanted ... I chose podlempatice and also in the description, it is clearly stated that the cooling for socket 1366, but unfortunately the packaging is not just for the backplate slot ... Mam removing the plate and just because it can not handle heavy .. .. Prima ...
Treatment For socket 775 or 1366 backplate not included and must be ordered from the manufacturer ... Part Code NM-I3

So is home :-) install this cooler probably not worth describing. Simple, clear and understood by everyone. The beautiful turret from Austria as a matter of power and noise? Noise level up to 50% power inaudible. Then it each time you add 20% are aware that the fan is working. At 100% power already quite Fitzi but 1500ot / min must somehow manifest, but still nothing terrible .-) Minimum speed should I set for 300ot / min and in IDLE temperatures are around 30 degrees. Load at maximum CPU and up to 1,500 rpm, temperatures up to 60 degrees. Otherwise I i7 4770K CPU. In my case, the upgrade from Noctua NH-U12P this is a performance-comparable, but the reason for the exchange was that older Noctua hampered RAM memories. Specifically, one slot only, provided that you have a higher memory coolers. With Low Profile RAM older Noctua problem does not. This is just for clarification.
Effective quality Beautiful Quiet Finally PWM However, the price is justified.
