As usual, we would like to give you a brief glimpse of what we are currently working on by displaying some exclusive prototypes and providing a first sneak preview of upcoming new products.

  • 140mm performance in 120mm size
  • 100% RAM compatibility on LGA115x and AM4
  • Classic 120mm tower size for excellent case and PCIe compatibility
  • Dual NF-A12x25 120mm fans
  • SecuFirm2™ for LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA2066, LGA2011-0, LGA2011-3, & AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/AM4/FM1/FM2/FM2+

Noctua presents NH-U12A premium class 120mm CPU cooler

Noctua today presented its new NH-U12A premium-quality quiet CPU cooler. The NH-U12A is the latest, 5th generation of Noctua’s award-winning U12 series of 120mm size coolers. Conceived to push the envelope of the 120mm form factor, it combines two of Noctua’s flagship model NF-A12x25 PWM 120mm fans with a completely redesigned heatsink featuring 7 heatpipes and an increased fin surface area for superior heat dissipation. This way, the NH-U12A can rival the performance of many 140mm sized coolers while offering 120mm class case and PCIe compatibility.
  • Further improved second generation of the award-winning NT-H1 with even better thermal performance
  • Not electrically conductive and non-corroding
  • Excellent long-term stability (usage time on the CPU up to 5 years)
  • 3.5g pack for around 3-20 applications (depending on CPU size, e.g. ~3 applications for TR4, ~20 for LGA1151)

"Anyone who has ever heard of Noctua will expect that the NH-U12A performs well…and it didn’t let us down! There has never been an air cooler on our test bench that reached the thermal performance of this. Not only that, but it also beats a number of all-in-one liquid coolers from some very big names in the industry!" (Dave McMahon, Play3r.net)

"This model is more compact than some of Noctua’s larger offerings but offers unparalleled performance for its size due the quality of fans being used." (Drew Duncan, SmallFormFactor.net)
