Visit us at Computex 2019!

Noctua will be exhibiting at Computex Taipei (May 28th to June 1st) and we kindly invite you to visit us in Nangang Exhibiton Hall 1F, booth I0701! 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)

"The Noctua NH-U12A simply starts and stays ahead of other competing heatsinks in the same size class. [...] Once again, with the NH-U12A, Noctua shows that compact and powerful can belong in the same sentence." (Aaron Lai, APHNetworks.com)

"La qualità e l’efficienza delle soluzioni messe a punto da Noctua non lascia molto spazio all’interpretazione; anche in questo caso ci troviamo di fronte ad un prodotto impeccabile sotto il punto di vista delle prestazioni." (Gianluca Cecca, HWLegend.tech)

"Put simply, the Noctua NH-U12A is one of the best air-coolers currently on the market! As can be seen in both our stock and overclocked performance figures, it easily handled everything that was thrown at it while keeping the CPU cool and itself surprisingly quiet!" (Mike Sanders, eTeknix.com)

"Noctua nous fait part de son professionnalisme et nous propose un ventirad de très très haute qualité. Le refroidissement qu'apporte le NH-U12A est aussi bon, voir meilleur que certains refroidissements liquides tout en ne produisant que très peu de bruit. Son encombrement lui donne aussi l’avantage de ne pas prendre la place des slots de RAM." (Decroix Nicolas, ZeDen.net)

"Der NH-U12A ist unserer Ansicht nach der beste 120-mm-Kühler am Markt, selbst wenn nur einer der beiden Lüfter verwendet wird. Durch die kompakten Maße blockiert der NH-U12A weder RAM-Bänke noch den ersten PEG-Slot, was bei einigen 140-mm- und bei diversen Doppelturm-Modellen durchaus ein Problem sein kann. Montage und Verarbeitung sind simpel respektive exzellent." (Marc Sauter, Golem.de)
