Noctua NH-U12S Review

Introduction:

When it comes to air-cooling, no enthusiast is stranger to ‘Noctua’.  Found in 2005, Noctua is an Austria based performance-grade cooling equipment manufacturer.

Pioneering and popularizing the dual-tower design with the legendary NH-D14, Noctua’s latest lineup focuses on the revival of their S Series (Slim) designs. Originally introduced in 2005, the series is now re-engineered to ensure a huge mass of fins and heatpipes hanging over the RAM slots isn’t needed to keep the processor temperatures in check.
