Noctua NH-U12P SE2 box

The NH-U12P come extremely well packaged, even if it doesn’t look like it from the outside. The artwork of the box has the specs and features listed, and with a window up front you get a glimpse of the fan.

Noctua NH-U12P SE2 packing

When you open the box the parts are separated into two compartments — a small box with the mounting accessories and a larger box with the cooler and the fan.

In the bigger of the two boxes is the cooler and one of the NF-12P 120mm fans. The base is protected by a plastic cover.

Noctua NH-U12P SE2 accessories

In the smaller box are the rest of the accessories. They are nicely separated, so figuring out what parts you need to use is almost a no brainier. Noctua also thoughtfully includes a long Phillips head screw driver to aid you in the install if you don’t have one.

Noctua NH-U12P SE2 common parts bag

In the common parts bag are silicone strips for between the fan and the cooler, inline resistors for the Low Noise features, a tube of Noctua’s NT-H1 thermal paste, as well as spring clips for the mounting of up to two fans. New to the NH-U12P SE2 is a Y cable for powering the fans from a single 3 pin source.

Noctua NH-U12P SE2 badge

A slight change from the past Noctua kits I have seen; the badge is not a sticker this time around, but a nice metal badge.
