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.

    Test verdict: "Testen af denne køler gik rigtig fint. Det er ikke en køler, der er beregnet til high-end overclocking, men standardfrekvenserne klarer den helt uden problemer." (Kim Monberg, Tweak.dk)

    29.03.2015 - HiTechLegion.com NH-U9S
    Test verdict: "Both of these coolers can handle a very surprising load for their size, and may well be setting a new performance standard for their size under heavier loads. I walked away very, very impressed." (George Cella, HiTechLegion.com)

    29.03.2015 - Rendszerigény.hu NH-L9x65
    Test verdict: "A Noctua NH-L9x65 egy kimondottan hasznos processzorhűtő ha HTPC építésében gondolkozunk, hisz olyan helyen is alkalmazható, ahol magas profilú hűtő használata nem lehetséges, egyéb alacsony profilú megoldás pedig a memória bővítőhelyek kihasználhatóságát akadályozná meg. Az NH-L9x65 hűtési teljesítménye a gyári hűtésnél hatékonyabb, annak ellenére, hogy jóval a alacsonyabb működési zajszintet produkál." (Kocsis Bence, Rendszerigény.hu)

    Test verdict: "This is one low-profile cooler that has touch-the-sky performance and not just reaches for the bar, but sets a new one entirely." (Ron Perillo, Modders-Inc.com)
