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: "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)

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."

Test verdict: "Auch wenn es sich bei den beiden neuen Kühlern von Noctua um keine Modelle mit brachialer Cooling-Performance handelt, liegen die verzeichneten Temperaturen in einem Bereich, der einige deutlich ausladendere Konkurrenten überflügelt. Zudem muss sich vor Augen geführt werden, in welchen Einsatzgebieten die Verwendung eines derart kompakten CPU-Coolers sinnvoll ist. Die kleinen Würfel machen aufgrund ihrer großen Kompatibilität mit umliegenden Bauteilen des Systems und der besonders im Falle des NH-D9L geringen Bauhöhe vor allem in kompakten Systemen viel her."
