Noctua - Bild

Product discontinued. Successor model: NH-U12S

Recommended by more than 150 leading international websites and magazines, Noctua’s NH-U12P series has become a benchmark in premium quality quiet cooling. The new NH-U12P SE2 now comes with two NF-P12 fans for further improved performance and adds support for LGA1156/1155/1150 as well as LGA1366 via the latest SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system. Topped off with Noctua’s award-winning NT-H1 thermal compound, the NH-U12P SE2 forms a complete quality package that continues the NH-U12P series’ legacy of superb quiet cooling performance.

"In the NH-U12P’s dual fan configuration it was clearly the winner with a 1.75*C gap between it and the closest competitor, the Monsoon III LT. The NH-U12P SE1366 cooled our i7-920 to a very nice 56.25*C under full load, and a whopping 17.75* under stock. [...] With the system overclocked to 3.5GHz and under full load the stock cooler starts to scream for mercy as the load temp climbed to 83.5*C. The Vigor Monsoon III LT dropped back 2 spots, and the NH-U12P is still in the lead, keeping our i7-920 to a toasty 67.5*C; a whole 16* cooler then stock. [...] the Noctua NH-U12P CPU Cooler is the winner in our testing. Either in its original single fan configuration or in its new SE1366 dual fan configuration it led the pack and did it quietly."

Test verdict: "The Intel Core i7 CPUs can get very toasty so the need of a quality cooler is a must. The Noctua NH-U12P is just that and will continue to be our King of Cooling." (Shane Higgins, LegitReviews.com)

"We know from when we tested the original Noctua a few months ago that we were in for a good showing from this new cooler. We were not disappointed at all. With the aid of the dual NF-P12 fan, we were able to equal the performance of the Thermalright T.R.U.E. with dual fans and to top other top coolers in the original configurations. [...] The updates that we see with the SE1366 is what makes this cooler better than the previous version. The mounting system is simple and takes a little time consumption when installing, but works well and is worth the little extra time that it takes to assemble. And we can't forget the individual fan that you get with the SE1366. The added couple of degrees is also worth it. Especially when you are trying to get the highest stable overclock from your CPU and also want to remain in quiet trying to get there. Noctua planned everything out when developing the upgrades to the NH-U12P."

Test verdict: "I have echoed this in every Noctua review I have ever done and that is the quality that you get from Noctua can't be touched by many in the industry. The SE1366 continues the excellence we see from Noctua." (Tony Day, Pro-Clockers.com)

"Au final, la meilleure solution est le système Noctua NH-U12P livrée d'origine avec deux ventilateurs de 120 millimètres. En observant ses points, il est à chaque fois le meilleur compromis performances/nuisances sonores. Il est bien évidemment audible en 12 volts mais quand on observe ses performances en mode Mid, on se dite que cela suffit amplement pour refroidir le plus chaud des Core i7. Même le mode Low est plus qu'envisageable, le tout dans un silence de cathédrale."

Test verdict: "Si ce dissipateur Intel ne vous suffit pas, nous vous conseillons le Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 à 60 euros qui certes coûte une dizaine d'euros de plus que le Thermalright et le Zalman mais qui en contrepartie offre un bundle hyper complet avec deux ventilateurs de 120 mm, des câbles réducteurs de tension et de la pâte thermique de qualité."

"With the fans at standard speed, our overclocked and overvolted Core i7 ran 19°C cooler with the Noctua than with the reference Intel HSF, while producing a negligible low hum. Using the black fan adaptors, the Noctua lost no cooling ability and was a touch quieter."

Test verdict: "If low noise is more important to you than pure cooling ability, this HSF is a great choice." (Clive Webster, Custom PC)

Test verdict: "La série A n’entache en rien la réputation de Noctua, bien au contraire elle la sublime! Les performances collent proportionnellement aux dimensions des ventilateurs et avec un travail efficace sur le niveau sonore. Les optimisations présentes sur le cadre tout comme les pales, mais aussi au niveau du moteur et du roulement, contribuent à cette efficacité tant au niveau performance que sonore."
