Noctua Announce NH-U12S And NH-U14S Single Tower CPU Coolers
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
Noctua’s CPU coolers are respected all across the entire market for their premium quality, performance and acoustics. Sadly, we don’t see Noctua release new CPU coolers very often because so much R&D is required for each new product. However, today is one of those rare days where Noctua have announce a new CPU cooler and we have not just one, but two.
The new products from Noctua are the NH-U12S and NH-U14S. These are based on the NH-U series of CPU coolers Noctua has released already, this series includes the NH-U12P, NH-U12DX and NH-U9B to name just a few. Both models feature high performance Noctua fans, six 6mm nickel plated heat pipes and a slim design for maximum RAM compatibility.
“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.”
The NH-U12S comes equipped with Noctua’s infamous NF-F12 120mm fan, which we reviewed here, and has a 45mm fin depth meaning even with two fans installed there will still be 100% RAM compatibility on the LGA 1155 platform. Other Noctua standard treats, like a full tube of NT-H1, a 6 year warranty, a low noise adapter and a lavish mounting kit with accessory pack, are included.
The Noctua NH-U14S is equipped with Noctua’s excellent NF-A15 PWM fan, which we reviewed here, and this CPU cooler has a 52mm thick heatsink and 100% RAM compatible on the LGA 2011 platform. Again, a full tube of NT-H1, a 6 year warranty, a low noise adapter and a lavish mounting kit with accessory pack, are included.
The Noctua NH-U12S is available at €59.99/$65 and the NH-U14S is available at €69.90/$75. Keep your eyes peeled as hopefully we will be able to get at least one of these in for a review!
What do you think of these new CPU coolers from Noctua? Do they look like value for money? Would you consider buying one?
