Noctua NH-U12S Review

Noctua NH-U12S

Price Reference:

  • Excellent Performance
  • Sturdy build quality
  • Silent, especially with the LNA adapter
  • 100% RAM compatibility
  • Easy installation
  • Size
  • 6 years of warranty
  • Price
  • Odd, boring color scheme
  • Only one fan bundled with the cooler

Myself being a fan of Noctua’s NH-D14, I have to say, they have yet again managed to impress. With unparalleled packing, Noctua have taken things a step further with the SecuFirm 2 mounting system, and installation now is much easier.

In the process, they haven’t compromised on the performance even a little bit. The NH-U12S, even in a single fan configuration, can compete with most of the larger, dual-tower type coolers despite being a single-tower cooler. Test results show that the cooling prowess of the NH-U12S is exceeding the iconic NH-D14, therefore eliminating the need for grotesquely large air-coolers. Furthermore, unlike the dual-tower type designs that more often than not cover the memory slots, the NH-U12S guarantees maximum memory compatibility, even for the ones with large heat-spreaders.

With quality, performance and silence at their level best, the NH-U12S is definitely recommended, despite the rather high price tag for a single tower CPU cooler bundled with one fan.
