Rates well, tricky install

imgruenen, Amazon
21 May 2014
  • Summary: I saw this reviewed well for an ATX build and it seemed well made. It attaches to the MB by two bolts (phillips head) that are accessed by cut outs in the radiator. If you're not careful (I wasn't) you can unseat the processor while using the screwdriver. Then, time for a new MB, online this time with a low profile Zalman cooler. Much easier. In a larger case or with a more experienced builder, the Noctua would be great.

  • Summary: It arrived on time, was beautiful, but it just wouldn't fit. So sad, I think it may have helped a lot.

Silent, Huge, High Quality, but slight vibration

  • Summary: I put this cpu cooler on a 3770k i7 processor with an ATX Extreme4 motherboard. This is a very high quality CPU cooler, but falls a little short on design. - Mount: Good durable metal mount with a rubber contact layer on the backing. Has thumb screws which are easy to install, and would be just as easy to remove (unlike some intel stock cpu coolers). - Fans: Two fans that run silent. They have removable metal clips attaching them to the heat sink.

Neat design, too large for many applications.

  • Summary: Mini-ITX build? Forget about it. And I don't mean in the Italian-American/North-Jersey (good) kinda way. This thing is so massive it will not fit many, if not most of the super-cramped Mini-ITX motherboards. The standard mounting system requires a lot of clear space BENEATH the motherboard-- basically motherboards devoid of SMD devices/components (e.g.: SMD capacitors.

Noctua

baka, Amazon

  • Summary: Je ne vois aucune difference avec le ventirad d'origine du FX 8320!!! Pas assez efficace pour moi... je n'en suis pas totalement satisfait... Peut-etre qu'il est plus costaud???

attention à la compatibilité!

amp&ion, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: Produit trés bien fini, on voit la qualité Noctua. Mais attention, il faut bien se référer à la liste de compatibilité carte mère sur le site de Noctua avant de le choisir. En effet, il n'est quasiment installable sur aucune carte mère mini-ITX dont on voudrait utiliser le port PCI express pour mettre une carte graphique. En résumé, si vous espérez monter un mini-ITX gamer bien refroidi et silencieux avec le NH-L12, c'est manqué!

angle des colloducs trop grand

slamp "slamp", Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: Malgre sa taille plus petite que le noctua nh-c14. il ne rentre pas sur une carte mere asus maximus iv geneZ. En effet l'angle des calloducs n'est pas assez fort et du coup ceux-ci touchent les radiateurs de la CM ou la RAM (pourtant des barettes low profile). Sinon, la livraison est toujours aussi rapide. Colis recu en avance d'une journee.

En god kjøler

AJ, Komplett.no
16 May 2012
  • Summary: Dette er en god kjøler, men viftene bråker og fungerer ikke som de skal. Jeg byttet ut viftene med fractal silent vifter jeg fikk da fikk en nesten stillegående maskin og betydelig lavere temperatur på prosessoren.
