When you are building a home theater PC or small form factor PC it is really hard to find a CPU cooler that will not only fit, but provide adequate cooling as well. We know Noctua for making extremely large CPU coolers, some of the largest air coolers that we have seen actually. Today we are checking out one of their latest CPU coolers the NH-L12. What is interesting about it is that it is a low-profile cooler made for home theater PC’s and smaller systems. Will this cooler still provide the great cooling power we are used to seeing with Noctua CPU coolers? Read on to find out!
If you have been following the air CPU cooling scene for the past few years you have probably heard of Noctua. They makes some of the largest air cooling solutions available for your CPU. While their CPU coolers may be large, they do get the job done that is for sure! I was quite surprised when Noctua told me about their latest CPU cooler, the NH-L12. The reason I was so surprised was because it is a low-profile cooler! Interested? Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!
Just a little while ago we took a look at Noctua’s NH-C14 CPU cooler, it featured a C-shape top down design and proved to be one of the best performing CPU coolers we have tested this year! Well today we are going to look at the C14’s brother the NH-D14. It features an asymmetrical tower-type design with 2 large fans. This once again is a huge CPU cooler, but knowing Noctua it will provide great cooling and run pretty silent. Let’s check it out!
Noctua is a company that many enthusiast know about, but consumers may not. Noctua is based out of Austria and they makes some of the best performing and highest quality CPU coolers that we have seen. The interesting thing about their coolers is that they run very quiet. Today we will be taking a look at their new NH-C14 cooler. It features a C-shape top down design, 2 140mm fans, 6 copper heatpipes, aluminum fins, and a nickel plated copper base. Let’s take a look at the NH-C14 and see how well it performs.
When it came time to get a cooler for our new i7, we jumped at the chance to get a Noctua cooler. In just a few years, Noctua has acquired a reputation for building very effective CPU coolers. This will be my first Noctua cooler. It was originally designed for AM2+ and LGA775, but Noctua has designed a kit to convert any of their coolers for use on LGA1366 processors, and provided one along with the cooler. They have now come up with a special edition of this cooler containing mounting hardware for only the LGA 1366. Will the NH-U12P keep the i7 nice and cool? Read on to see!
Made in Austria is probably not something people are familiar with, but Noctua is trying to change this. Today we are looking at the Noctua NH-C12P Premium CPU Cooler which really is a premium cooler. It’s not always easy saying quiet and optimal cooling in the same sentence when it comes to CPU coolers, but I think Noctua and the NH-C12P are starting to break this with a cool and quiet CPU cooler. While it certainly isn’t the most inexpensive cooler on the market, it is probably a worthy investment because it currently supports all processors, yes even the i7, and it seems to me that Noctua will continue giving away free brackets for their CPU coolers in the future.
