Noctua introduces chromax line fans, cables and heatsink covers

Noctua today introduced the long-awaited chromax editions of its most renowned 120mm and 140mm fan models as well as chromax line cables and heatsink covers for its award-winning NH-U12S and NH-D15 series CPU coolers. All the new chromax line products allow users to colour-customise their Noctua cooling systems in order to match popular build colour schemes.
  • chromax.black.swap edition heatsink cover with swappable inlays (red, blue, green, yellow, black, white)
  • Compatible with Noctua NH-U12S, NH-U12S TR4-SP3 and NH-U12S SE-AM4 heatsinks
  • Ideal for matching with Noctua’s industrialPPC or chromax line fans and anti-vibration pads

Noctua presents two AM4-compatible low-profile coolers

Noctua today presented two updates to its range of quiet low-profile CPU coolers. Successors to the award-winning NH-L9a and NH-L12, the new NH-L9a-AM4 and NH-L12S models now support the AM4 socket of AMD’s Ryzen processors. Whereas the NH-L9a-AM4 stands a mere 37mm tall, which makes it ideal for use in compact HTPCs or Small Form Factor cases that offer minimum clearance for CPU coolers, the slightly bigger NH-L12S comes equipped with the new NF-A12x15 PWM fan and combines excellent compatibility, surprising efficiency and remarkable flexibility.
  • Based on the award-winning NH-L12
  • Low-profile design (70mm total height)
  • 1x NF-A12x15 120mm fan with PWM
  • SecuFirm2™ for Intel LGA2066, LGA2011, LGA1156, LGA1155, LGA1151, LGA1150 & AMD AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, AM4, FM1, FM2, FM2+

"The extra cooling performance over its predecessor whilst maintaining the same quiet operation makes the Noctua NH-L12S the complete package and in my opinion the top choice sub 70mm CPU cooler best suited for the LZ7 when using an SFX PSU." (Lazer3D.com)

"As an air cooler alone, the NH-L12S is a fantastic buy for anyone. The fact that it’s designed for small form factor builds, means that if this is the kind of cooler you need, you would be mad not to seriously consider it. It will come as no surprise that Noctua’s latest offering gets the Play3r Platinum award." (Dave McMahon, Play3r.net)

"In Kombination mit den ebenfalls kürzlich vorgestellten Lüftern der chromax Serie, welche sich nur von der Optik her von den werksseitig mit den Kühlern ausgelieferten Lüftern unterscheiden, ergibt sich ein schickes Gesamtbild, auf welches sicherlich viele Gamer und Casemodder gewartet haben.
