Noctua today presented the latest models of its award-winning NH-U series
of quiet single tower CPU coolers: Whereas the NH-U12S comes equipped with
the renowned NF-F12 120mm fan and succeeds the highly popular NH-U12P SE2,
the NH-U14S is the series' first 140mm model and uses the new NF-A15 140mm
fan. Both models feature a new, slim design that ensures easy RAM access and
maximum compatibility with tall memory modules.
"The original NH-U12 and NH-U9 were the first Noctua products we brought
to the market and the NH-U series has been a cornerstone of our success
ever since", explains Mag. Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). "Representing the
next generation of this venerable legacy, the new NH-U12S and NH-U14S
are the result of almost 10 years of continuous development and
optimisation. Both models mark a significant improvement in performance,
convenience and compatibility."
Due to its fine-tuned design and the class-leading NF-F12 120mm
FocusedFlow™ fan, the NH-U12S further improves the renowned quiet
cooling performance of the NH-U12P SE2. The NH-U14S features a large,
six heatpipe design and comes equipped with the NF-A15 140mm fan. This
allows it to best the quiet cooling performance of all other U-series
coolers, making it Noctua's most efficient single tower cooler to date.
Both the NH-U12S' NF-F12 and the NH-U14S' NF-A15 fan support PWM for
convenient automatic speed control through the mainboard. In addition,
the maximum fan speed can be reduced from 1500 to 1200rpm using the
supplied Low-Noise Adaptor for even quieter operation.
The NH-U12S and NH-U14S feature a new, slim layout that has been
conceived to provide maximum RAM compatibility: With a fin depth of only
45mm, the NH-U12S will not overhang the RAM slots even with two fans
installed. This gives the user full access to the memory modules on all
current CPU sockets and guarantees 100% compatibility with tall
heatspreaders or optional memory fans. The NH-U14S features a 52mm slim
design tailor-made for LGA2011 and does not overhang the RAM slots on
Topped off with the trusted, pro-grade SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting
system, Noctua's proven NT-H1 thermal compound and full 6 years
manufacturer's warranty, the NH-U12S and NH-U14S are complete premium
quality solutions that combine superb performance, high compatibility
and quiet operation.
