Noctua introduces NH-U12P CPU cooler

Noctua presented today the latest model of its successful NH-U series: The NH-U12P is equipped with the new NF-P12 fan as well as the NT-H1 premium-grade thermal compound and continues the legacy of Noctua's classic NH-U coolers, which won over 150 awards and recommendations from leading international websites and magazines.
"We continually work to further improve our successful products", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "The NH-U12P doesn't only provide better mainboard compatibility, but thanks to the use of the new NF-P12 fan as well as the high-grade NT-H1 compound, the NH-U12P also brings its predecessors' much-acclaimed quiet cooling performance to a whole new level!"

While retaining the successful design and the well-proven SecuFirm™ mounting system, the NH-U12P offers improved compatibility with mainboards featuring very high chipset coolers thanks to its raised fin-stack. The NH-U12P comes with SecuFirm™ mounting-kits for socket LGA 775, AM2 and AM2+. Mounting-kits for Intel Xeon CPUs are available on request.

Fitted with the high-grade thermal compound NT-H1 and the new NF-P12 fan, which has been specifically developed for high-impedance applications like CPU cooling, the NH-U12P is a further improvement on the award-winning performance of the NH-U12F. Due to the psycho-acoustic optimizations of the NF-P12 fan, the NH-U12P provides the same degree of quietness that has made the NH-U series so popular among Silent-PC enthusiasts. The fan's well-proven SSO-Bearing guarantees maximum long-term stability and in conjunction with the NT-H1 high-end thermal compound, the NH-U12P is a quality package through and through, ensuring excellent performance and outstanding quietness for many years.

Price and availability
The NH-U12P will be available on November 28th at a recommended retail price of EUR 56.90 / USD 64.90.

ive currently got a striker extreme, but the list of problems is doing my head in, and the lack of overclockability.
Im going to try and get a new mobo withing the next year (or month(s)) depending on what comes about.
What i really need is something that will allow sli, as i can see myself getting that in the next year (with 9xxx).
So, would you recomend the upcoming nvidia chip, intel skulltrail (if i can afford it) or wait until next year for when i go sli possibly and see whats out then?

oh, it needs penryn support, gonna try get one of them soon and my striker wont work with them :(

18-11-2007, 07:29:45

you will be wanting the 780i chipset then. Thou the penryn support is what has delayed it :rolleyes:

yup, but I just hope overclocking etc is good on it. i really like intel chips, they work out the box, my striker has been far from that.
I might stick with myn for a year, then get nforce 8 or whatevers out then along with a penryn or what ever. :D
