Noctua NH-L12Jun 29th, 2012 | By Jared
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.
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.
- Better than stock cooling
- Single and dual fan configurations
- Low height
- Quality construction
- Premium accessory package
- Not for overclockers
I would like to thank Noctua for making this review possible.
