Noctua - Bild

The NH-U12S is the latest 12cm model of Noctua’s classic U-series single tower CPU coolers, which have received more than 400 awards and recommendations from the international press. The S-version’s 45mm slim shape guarantees 100% compatibility with tall RAM modules and at the same time, its fine-tuned design and the class-leading NF-F12 FocusedFlow™ fan with PWM support for fully automatic speed control allow it to further improve its predecessor’s renowned quiet cooling performance. Topped off with the trusted, pro-grade SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system, Noctua’s proven NT-H1 thermal compound and full 6 years manufacturer’s warranty, the NH-U12S is a complete premium quality solution that combines outstanding performance, quiet operation and excellent compatibility.

    29.10.2014 - modding.fr NF-A4x10 5V
    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." (Bertrand Curras, modding.fr)
