Noctua NH-L12

Jun 29th, 2012 | By


Noctua did not venture to break any cooling records with the NH-L12 but rather to give HTPC and small form factor users a quality cooler and this goal was reached. With just a single NF-B9 92mm fan the NH-L12 stands at just 66mm and Low Noise Adapters make this an ideal package for replacing that stock fan in any configuration. Noctua’s SecuFirm2 mounting system makes installation a snap and holds the NH-L12 securely in place. A premium package gives you everything you need for installation including hardware to mount an unused fan in your case, that is going a step beyond in my book.

Noctua NH-L12

If you are looking for a solution for overclocking then the NH-L12 is not for you. With that in mind the price might be a little steep for some when overclocking really isn’t in mind.

The NH-L12 is a quality heatsink that easily bests stock cooling with a small footprint. Any HTPC user would be happy with this cooler from its quality construction and solid accessory package.

  • Advantages

  • Better than stock cooling
  • Single and dual fan configurations
  • Low height
  • Quality construction
  • Premium accessory package
  • Disadvantages

  • Not for overclockers
  • Price

I would like to thank Noctua for making this review possible.
