Noctua NH-U14S and NH-U12S High Compatibility CPU Cooler Review


Noctua NH-U14S and NH-U12S High Compatibility CPU Cooler Review

Noctua has made a habit of delivering consistently top notch products without surprises, yet the NH-U14S and NH-U12S both share a very distinct one. While Noctua has outfitted the NH-U14S and NH-U12S with a very impressive array of features (8mm heatpipes with five on the 12S and six on the 14S, nickel plated copper pipes and base and aluminum fin array), it is the guaranteed RAM compatibility that surprises. Noctua has actually managed to pack all top air cooler traits into a configuration that allows for the use of taller RAM in all slots of current Intel boards without detracting from performance. Both coolers use Noctua’s latest fan designs which boast high air movement and static pressure with very limited noise, as well as PWM control. Both the 140mm of the NH-U14S and 120mm of the NH-U12S top out at 1500rpm at only 19.2 and 18.6 dBA respectively. The same SecuFirm 2 mounting kit is used on both, offering top quality components with easy and solid installation. All necessary hardware is included to add second fans for push/pull operation, as is a tube of top quality NT-H1 thermal interface material… at HiTechLegion
