Noctua presents quiet CPU coolers for Xeon 5500

Vienna, June 15th 2009 - Noctua today presented two new additions to its DX series of quiet Intel Xeon CPU coolers: Now compatible with Intel's latest LGA1366 based Xeon 5500 (Nehalem EP) processors, the new NH-U12DX 1366 and NH-U9DX 1366 are true drop-in replacements for standard Intel coolers and make it easier than ever before to significantly reduce the noise emission of high-end workstations and severs.

"Our industry clients who build quiet servers and workstations swear by our DX series of Intel Xeon coolers for applications which require both high processing power and low noise emission", says Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "The new Nehalem EP processors certainly provide an impressive boost in performance, but especially the faster models also require high-quality heatsinks in order to be cooled quietly. That's where our new DX 1366 coolers come in."

Based on Noctua's signature NH-U series and fitted with the award-winning NF-P12 and NF-B9 fans, the new NH-U12DX 1366 and NH-U9DX 1366 form complete premium quality packages that include Noctua's renowned NT-H1 thermal compound and guarantee outstanding quiet cooling performance for Intel's LGA1366 Xeon 5500 CPUs. While the larger NH-U12DX 1366 is ideal for quiet audio, video, CAD or rendering workstations, the smaller NH-U9DX 1366 fits standard 4U chassis and thus lends itself to special server applications.

Both models employ the new SecuFirm2™ mounting system for Xeon 5500, which ensures maximum convenience and extremely short installation time, making them ideal both for professional system integrators and less tech-savvy workstation users seeking to quiet their systems.

Prices and availability
Both models are available immediately at recommended retail prices of EUR 56.90 / USD 64.90 (NH-U12DX 1366) and EUR 46.90 / USD 54.90 (NH-U9XDX 1366).

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."

Test verdict: "Misschien wel dé verrassing van deze test: hoe kan een koeler die slechts 8 centimeter diep is vrijwel net zo goed koelen als gevaartes als de Noctua NH-D15? Deze Noctua U14S staat qua koelprestaties in de top 4, neemt niet veel plek in en is ook nog redelijk stil." (Koen Crijns, Hardware.Info)

Test verdict: "Considering that this cooler exceeded the cooling performance of the NH-U12S and the NH-U14S, and matched if not exceeded the low noise production of both, the Noctua NH-D15 heatpipe tower CPU cooler has to receive the Bigbruin.com 'Recommended' and 'Whisper Quiet' awards."
