Noctua NH-U12P SE2 CPU Cooler

Testfreaks blog
21 December 2009
  • Conclusion: The Noctua NH-U12P performs admirably well. You can run the NH-U12P without fans and still get very good cooling performance, but you’ve got to remember to have good airflow in your case to achieve this. Not everyone will see the same results as I achieved in my testing.
  • Pros: Decent cooling performance, Fairly easy to install, Very well made
  • Cons: Back plate is rather thick, Not much difference using one or two fans

  • Conclusion: I hate to sound like a broken record, but Noctua just doesn't miss a beat. Their socket 775 brackets set the golden bar for their competitors. I didn't think they could improve them but they somehow managed to make them easier to use.

  • Conclusion: While the Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 was not the top performer today, it did quite well. Keep in mind that the Cooler Master V10 is a whopping $140 USD currently. This is over $50 USD more than the Noctua.

  • Conclusion: This is a superb cpu cooler like the previous Noctua coolers we have looked at. What amazes me everytime is that the cooler runs so silent and is still able to perform this well. It ourperforms the competition even though this time we only had a stock cooler to compete with.
