Conclusion: For a system of this magnitude we popped together the "little" system you see above. Its configuration is of one that would most certainly stress the new Noctua HSF's as all the elements supplied produce varying degrees of heat.
Conclusion: Configuration: Temperatures at idle have been measured after 1 hour of low core activity since I switched on the pc (cpu between 0 and 5% while editing files, core fan at 40%), temperatures at full have been measured after 10 minutes of avi encoding by (cpu at 65%).
Summary: Noctua's NH-U12F is a great cooler that can compete with products from much bigger well-known companies. Noctua put excellent engineering into the product, for example when you look at the installation process you can see many little details that make installation easier or safer.
Pros: Excellent performance, Very good and detailed manual, Quiet, Ultra Low Noise adapter included, Well thought out installation, Wide compatibility, Fan can be replaced
Cons: Big - will not fit small form factor cases, Heavy
Conclusion: Noctua već neko vrijeme vješto koristi svoje umijeće i postojeće desktop modele kako bi proširili tržište i na workstation/server segment. Dokaz tome su i ova dva modela, koji su poznate Noctuine premium kvalitete, jednostavnog načina montaže ali i dobrih performansi.
Pros: Kvaliteta materijala i izrade, solidne performanse, podrška za veći broj socketa, niska radna buka.
