Returning to its former glory: the new air cooling of Noctua

The renowned Austrian curry maker offers an upscale and upgraded version of Its first 120 millimeters

Somewhere at the beginning of the decade, air purifiers with 120 fans in millimeters were the peak of the cooling area for Before jumping into a whole world of exotic water composition and customization - and at that time one of the category rulers was the U12 of the company .

Since then we have seen the rise of systems The mass of cctv and the cooling of the air becomes even more massive with the use of 140 millimeter fans and backplate brackets for the motherboard which are designed to support the weights that sometimes reach more than a kilogram - so the manufacturer who turned the fan into a real art, decided to go against them The new-but-nostalgic NH-U12A.

The fans that are connected on both sides of the aluminum heat sink are the main source of magic - but not only

The motto of the new cooling ensures Of 140 millimeters in physical size of 120 millimeters, and say it all - Is based on seven particularly thick copper tubes and a pair of NF-A12x25 fans developed over a period of five years to provide maximum air flow in most cases and most situations while maintaining a minimum noise level of 22.6dBa in an average living room.

The compact dimensions should allow cooling to work alongside all types of dynamic memories available in the market - and also enter a large portion of the Mini-ITX chassis for large, small-sized performance

The NH-U12A includes compatibility with most modern mainstream platforms, namely the entire LGA115x family of Intel, the resident of the AM4 Plus the existing AM3, AM2 and FM2 seats and the LGA2066 resident In its common standard configuration - so the most significant drawback is the lack of support for the TR4 bracket for the processors. The dreadful.

The entire body is made of aluminum, with non-standard pipes in diameter 58 millimeters

Heat sink Is already being officially sold, Together with a high quality thermal ointment syringe and warranty for six years, for a reasonable recommended price of 100 dollars per unit - and it would be interesting to expect his head-to-head comparisons to modest water coolers that can be obtained at a similar cost.

  1. When is the inspection?
    Well, what exactly is Noctoa's story?
    Nowhere is it stated which supplier this is meant for….

  2. These are not aluminum tubes.
    These are copper tubes made of copper.
    Heat transfer is done by liquid / gas inside the pipe.

  3. What? ? ? ? ?
    I was looking for one last year (I finally took 212)
    But $ 100?
    It would cost around NIS 200 with one fan.

    Cooling is excellent but the price is not justified!

    If this cooling shows performance close to d15 then the price is definitely justified, these are water-cooled.
