Noctua Introduces NH-U12S and NH-U14S Single Tower CPU CoolersMon, Apr 08, 2013 - 8:37 AM
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 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 this platform. The NH-U12S and NH-U14S will be available shortly at suggested retail prices of EUR 59.90 / USD 64.90 (NH-U12S) and EUR 69.90 / USD 74.90 (NH-U14S).
“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.”
