An air cooler for the ncase m1 is a device that helps to cool the air around the computer. It can be used to cool the air inside the case or to cool the air outside the case. The air cooler for the ncase m1 can be used to cool the air inside the case by using the fan to circulate the air.
The air cooler for the ncase m1 can also be used to cool the air outside the case by using the chimney effect.
The NH-D15 chromax. black is an all-black version of Noctua’s award-winning flagship model NH-D15 premium-quality quiet CPU cooler. Thanks to the same proven dual-tower heatsink design and NF-A15 PWM fans, it stays true to the NH-D15’s successful formula of rivalling the performance of all-in-one water coolers while maintaining superb quietness of operation.
At the same time, the chromax. black version with its black fans and black coated heatsink combines these assets with a sleek stealth look. Topped off with the renowned SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system and Noctua’s enthusiast-grade NT-H1 thermal compound, the NH-D15 chromax.
black is a deluxe choice for both overclockers and silent enthusiasts who seek an elite-class heatsink that looks just as great as it cools.
Installed this cooler three weeks ago as a first-time builder, and it’s working well on a i7-12700k so far. Quiet operation with idle temps 4-6 degrees above ambient and sustained load temps at about 20-40 degrees above ambient.
A couple install notes: The surface of the cooler that touches the IHS is covered by a piece of rigid plastic. My cooler did not have a peel-off sticker that coolers from other manufacturers may have.
The cooler comes with a mounting bracket for the LGA1700 socket. For intel 12th-gen chips, the Noctua manual shows how to apply the thermal paste in a quincunx pattern, and there’s plenty of paste in the tube to practice your application technique.
For ATX PC’s, I think it’s wise to install a cooler of this size once the motherboard is fixed inside the case, so you can easily attach CPU power cable(s) and fan headers to the motherboard. I attached the cooler outside the which was nice since it served as a secure handle to grasp the motherboard as it was put into the case, but connecting the fans and power cables and screwing in the motherboard was a delicate operation with two gigantic radiators and fans obstructing the space.
I installed this on a Z390 MB with a 9700K inside a NZXT H510 case. It was easy to install, it runs very cool and very quiet! I did not have room for the second fan due to RAM height, but I didn’t need it anyway.
Running Cinebench a couple of passes resulted in a temp of 70 degrees Celsius. Under normal operation it stays much cooler, and it idles about 31 degrees. This replaces an NZXT Kraken X62 280mm AIO. No more worries about a leaking AIO, I do not have to run the CAM software any longer, and I get much better airflow which is better for my GPU!.
Noctua is one of the well-known sizes in the silent and high-end cooling sector, with the Austrian manufacturer’s CPU coolers in particular enjoying an excellent reputation. These combine excellent processing quality with high cooling performance and minimal noise development.
The self-developed fans from Noctua are also largely responsible for this, which are also available separately to serve as case, CPU or radiator fans.
I used this cooler to replace the Wraith unit supplied with my Ryzen 5 3600 CPU. It is fitted on a Gigabyte 570 Gaming X motherboard. I purchased it simply as an upgrade I was not experiencing overheating from the Wraith.
I was surprised by the sheer size and weight of this unit, but it did fit inside my case, (I hadn’t measured to ensure that it would. ) The kit is high quality, and contains a variety of parts to give mounting options.
Mounting was straight forward and secure. The fan is quiet when idling, but becomes audible when it increases in speed. Overall the CPU runs 2 to 3 degrees cooler when idle, the peak temperature I have seen is 74.
5 degrees. This cooler is efficient and more than enough for my needs.
Packaging was neat, product is fantastic quality and the Noctua AM4 installation video on YouTube is worth following along with (linked in this review). The mounting system is really simple and sturdy, although the sprung screws can be a little tricky to get going at first.
I recommend removing the fan until the cooler is mounted, the wire frame mount for the fan is easy to remove if you pull it back and out towards the other fan side rather than just perpendicular to the face of the side of the heat sink.
Once installed, the signature Noctua brown looks cool and really is a mark of quality these days, it’s quiet and easily keeps my 3700x cool on stock settings while doing any task. About a 15-20 degree difference from the stock wraith RGB cooler in my Fractal Design Meshify C case.
The only reason I upgraded was because the stock cooler is very noisy. This one is bliss in comparison.
This is the first time I have fitted this type of cooler, I found the instruction were easy to follow but you must take into account of how the cooler is to sit in your case for complete air flow. The cooler is very quiet, keeps my 5800x at 50c and 75 under load.
Presently doing a good job. I would recommend this product.
The NH-U12S chromax. black is a completely black version of Noctua’s award-winning slim tower cooler NH-U12S. The recipe for success remains unchanged thanks to the same slim heat sink and the proven NF-F12 PWM premium fan: excellent cooling performance combined with superb smoothness and the best RAM, case and PCIe compatibility.
The chromax. black version with its black fan and black-coated heat sink also combines these advantages with a cool stealth design. The high-quality complete package is complemented by the renowned multi-socket assembly system SecuFirm2 and Noctua’s popular NT-H1 thermal compound – a true premium solution for demanding users who are looking for a highly compatible 120-mm cooler that has a look to rival its cooling ability! Award-winning NH-U12S cooler Tens of thousands of hardware enthusiasts around the world swear by the quality and performance of the NH-U12S.
With recommendations from more than 200 international hardware websites, it is considered one of the best 120-mm coolers on the market.
Noctua quality in black which includes LGA 1700 support out of the box. No need to order extra brackets and no waiting to build your Alder Lake rig. Installation is very straightforward and although it is expensive Noctua quality and performance is worth the investment.
I have this paired with the i7 12700k at stock settings on an Asus Tuf z690 D4 board. Gaming temps are in the mid 50s C and hold 4800-4900 clocks when multiple threads are used. Running Cinebench pushes temps into the mid 70s and low 80s and considering the max is 100C on these chips there is plenty of headroom there.
Any decent case with some airflow should have no issues with this cooler and any AM4 CPU as well as any i5 or i7. I was concerned about temps with Alder Lake but under realistic loads that most everyone uses, especially gaming, this cooler is plenty.
I purchased this cooler for my Intel 10400F CPU to upgrade to the stock cooler. There is a significant improvement in cooling performance. Up to low loads, the stock cooler maintained the CPU temp around 40-45°C; this Noctua maintains the CPU temp at around 30-35°C.
At moderate loads, the stock cooler operated up to ~60°C; this cooler maintains the CPU in the forties (°C), heading into the low fifties at worst. The additional cooling also means the case fans run at lower RPMs, so the demand on them is significantly reduced.
The cooler footprint isn’t large so combability is good (eg tall RAM still fits, etc). Plenty of parts are included to for compatibility with several types of Intel and AMD sockets. Highly recommended for entry and mid-range CPU cooling upgrades for a decent price.
This cooler is by far the best air cooler money can buy. I don’t have much experience with building computers, but the installation was seamless and easy with the instructions provided by Noctua. The air cooler comes with LGA 115x, the new 1700 socket for the Alder Lake CPU’s and AM4.
The thermal paste provided by Noctua is also top quality. Under load, the highest temperatures I’ve seen were around 75C, idle around 35-40C. Extremely comparable to any liquid cooling/AIO on the market currently.
The fan on the cooler is super quiet, I don’t here a thing when playing games. Overall, extremely satisfied with the purchase.

Reviews From Real Customers
for the Price point this is a good budget cpu cooler cons the fins in this particular model are not stacks densely compered to some other cooler model, so it get easily bent if you are not careful during the mounting process this however doesnt affect the cooling performance because the individuall fins are substantially bigger Pros with sparsely fin stacks, a speciall fan blade to achive high amount of static pressure, is not requiered.
The fan, that comes with the cooler, is sufficient enough to do the job an it is very quiet – like the name suggest be queit! Tips do not mount the fan before the motherboard is seated in the case, because the fins are so big, you can easily running out of space for a cable management if you mount the cooler on the motherboard, before the MoBo seated in the case.
First seat the cable especially the 4+4 pin 8 pin CPU cable usually on the top left of the motherboard and other fanrgb cable then you can mount the cooler on the motherboard. The package comes with long screwdriver, that suitable to mount the cooler and a little amount of thermal paste, so you dont need to buy extra themal paste, however it is not a pre-applied thermal paste.
to the extent that I now cannot tell if my PC is on or off. Retrofitted it to the Ryzen 7 5800x PC I build a few months ago, originally with an Antec Neptune 240 cooler. This was very colourful but so noisy it had to go.
Glad I kept the motherboard backplate, as that’s what this cooler uses (no AMD backplate supplied). Fitting the cooler is no more than moderately fiddly and the instructions are OK – the flat side of the cooler (the one with the t of ‘be quiet’ neaerest) goes towards the memory blocks.
Strongly recommend centring the aluminium locking bridge and putting the screws through its holes before placing the whole thing down onto the CPU and mounting plate. The rear screw is the tricky one – get that started, and then the supplied screwdriver goes down the holes in the cooling fans and can be used to tighten it – and do it evenly as described in the instructions.
Be Quiet have made a video on youtube which makes it look a bit easier than it is in fact! https://www. youtube. com/watch?v=JVjqNJUGgig Overall I’m delighted with this – I’ve not overclocked the CPU (not much point with this processor) but even under full load the temp stayed below 80C in after-installation testing.
NH-D15 has become a benchmark for elite-class dual tower coolers. The SE-AM4 version is a dedicated special edition for AMD’s AM4 (Ryzen) platform featuring the latest SecuFirm2 mounting system for AM4.
I haven’t used air coolers for a while but I heard great things about the Noctua brand. This was larger than I expected. If you get this then make sure you go for lower profile ram sticks. When opening the box I was surprised how well packaged it was.
It was hard to imagine the fan getting damage in shipping. I was also surprised to find that you thermal paste. After reading about Noctua’s thermal paste online it seemed better than the one I purchased.
Purchased for a Ryzen 9 3950X build and I am very happy. This thing is big and heavy so make sure you have a case that can take it, I have a Corsair 750D for reference and it fits very well inside that.
Installation can be a little frustrating, securing the heatsink to the included fixing plates was a little difficult but I will put this down to something I was doing wrong. Ran Prime95 torture test for half an hour and at 100% load the CPU went up to 61 degrees C, at idle it’s in the 31 to 34 degrees C range.
Noise levels are just fine, I run the included fans at full speed (1500RPM) and there is a very low hum coming from the PC which is approx 1 foot away on my desk, not very loud in any way. I bought Noctua HSF for another dual Xeon build some time ago and, they too, were as good as this was, testament to the quality that Noctua provide.
If your case can accomodate this HSF you won’t be disappointed. The package also includes the Noctua NT-H1 thermal paste, you don’t need to get anything else.
Brought this awhile back. Very pleased with the results as always with Noctua! Easy to fit and quiet when running, does a great job of keeping my ryzen9 5900x cool although I havent got it overclocked to the max only running at 4.
5Ghz and temp of 48 off load and 68 underload. Scan, delivered my order fast, well packed and all items there!.

EVAPORATIVE COOLING: HESSAIRE’s evaporative cooling fans are designed to pull hot, dry air through a water-soaked filter using a fan to decrease the ambient temperature. * It DOES NOT use refrigerants to remove heat like an air conditioner.
INCREASE HUMIDITY IN DRY CLIMATES: The MC37V evaporative cooling fan is optimal when used in hot, dry climates to filter ambient air while increasing the moisture and delivering 3,100 CFM of cool airflow.
*Not effective in high humidity areas. Using water instead of refrigerant prevents any release of ozone depleting chemicals into the air. MANUAL & CONTINUOUS WATER FILL: Hessaire’s MC37V has a 10. 3-gallon water tank creating up to 3-4 hours of use.
The built-in float valve and garden hose adapter allow for easy connection and continuous water flow without overflowing your tank. EASY TO OPERATE & SIMPLE TO MAINTAIN: Fill tank, connect power, place unit in a well-ventilated area, flip the switch, and you’re all set.
Before storing, run for 30 minutes on fan to dry the filter, to prevent future mildew. Lightweight and portable, this upgraded model is designed for on-the-go use.
This is the 3rd Hessaire MC37A evaporative cooler I have bought from Sylvane. This review reflects my experience with the newer, digital model and not Sylvane. In a nutshell, I wish I could buy one of the older models back instead of this newer model.
Living in Phoenix, we spend most of our free time out back with our dogs. The newer model does not have near as much cooling power than the older models. When it’s over 100 degrees, it’s hot. The older models could keep us comfortable even at 110 degrees.
This model, at 90 degrees outside, pointed at me from 3 feet away, leaves me sweating. Whatever changes they’ve made, this model does not have nearly the power as the prior ones. I get more power from a fan on low on the other side of my living room than I get from the ‘upgraded’ edition of this evaporative cooler.
I am extremely disappointed in this ‘upgraded’ model and I’d like to suggest to Hessaire that if bringing the console in as a digital model is the reason for the loss of power, they need to ditch the digital and go back to its prior effectiveness.
The second unit I received was perfect and cools extremely well. Here in northern CA the humidity is 20 to 30 percent so the unit can really do well, and it does. You may notice that I said second unit, allow me to explain.
the first unit came as scheduled, but it was missing parts and had some damage, which compromised its operation, though the shipping box was perfect. I called Sylvane and talked with Mark and explained the problems with the unit and he quickly arranged for another unit to be shipped.
Since I no longer had the box he agreed to ship the unit first and I could use that box for the return. That happened very quickly and I was able to get the box on the old unit on the same day, and Mark arranged for Fed Ex to pick up the unit.
I wish I could recommend Fed Ex but they were horrible and continued to miss dates for pick up. Mark handled this well and now I have a very satisfactory unit keeping my rescue animals cool in this 100+ degree weather.
Thank you Mark and Sylvane, you are problem solvers and stand by your products even when the problem was likely not yours but the manufacturer. You made me a very satisfied customer!.
Using the product in my barn to help keep chickens cool during this heat wave. It does a credible job of cooling the pen (about 15’X15′) in my open air barn. That space in front of the fan is about 10-12 deg F cooler than the ambient air in the rest of the barn.
The down side is the constant refilling. The 10. 4 gal. reservoir has to be refilled about every 2. 5 to 3 hrs. Have had to do this manually thru the front opening because the auto refill with the water hose connection hasn’t worked since day 1.
Float is adjusted way too low. Cuts off with only a couple of gallons in the reservoir. Seeking to adjust the float didn’t work because the float on my unit is nothing like the one in the instructional video and appears to be non-adjustable.
Reached out to Hessaire thru email and haven’t heard a word back from them since. (about 6 weeks ago).
The NH-D9L is a premium grade dual tower CPU cooler that has been designed to provide excellent quiet cooling performance at a height of only 110 mm. Its comparably low profile (15 mm lower than classic 9cm tower coolers such as the NH-U9S) doesn’t only guarantee full 3U compliance but also makes the NH-D9L ideal for compact HTPC and small form factor cases that have airflow paths parallel to the mainboard.
Thanks to its 95 x 95 mm footprint, the NH-D9L clears the RAM and PCIe slots on all Intel based and most AMD based ITX mainboards. The included NF-A9 premium fan supports automatic speed control via PWM for outstanding quietness of operation and a second, NF-A9 fan can be added for further improved performance in dual fan mode.
Topped off with the trusted, pro-grade SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system, Noctua’s proven NT-H1 thermal compound, the NH-D9L forms a highly compact premium package for space-restricted applications.
I’ve been using Noctua coolers for years in my builds, and have nothing bad to say about the cooler itself. The only reason I’m giving a lower rating is the wait on an LGA1700 adapter. It’s being sold as compatible out of the box since December, yet mine didn’t have the adapter.
I’ve been waiting for 10 days now since putting in my request for the free mounting kit, and still no shipping confirmation. I have everything else ro build my new system, including the thermal paste that shipped from HK in a standard mail packet.
It’s rather aggravating, coming from one of my favorite products.
Tailored to provide superior RAM and PCIe compatibility, the NH-D15S is an asymmetrical single fan version of ‘s award-winning flagship model, the NH-D15. Thanks to its asymmetrical design, the NH-D15S clears the top PCIe slot on most uATX and ATX motherboards.
At the same time, the single fan setup and recessed lower fins guarantee 100% RAM compatibility with memory modules of up to 65mm height. Users who have sufficient room can also upgrade the cooler with either a 120mm or round 140mm fan on the front fin stack for further improved performance in dual fan mode.
This is the first time I’ve installed an aftermarket cpu cooler. Only ever used the ones that came with the processor (which apparently they don’t anymore). I’ve been Argonauting my other PC for 15 years and this is the first completely fresh build since then (though I did bring over the Seasonic 850 platinum rated power supply that I had installed in the old one earlier this year; I put a Corsair 550 in the old one and still use it for mobile recording).
This is a workstation on which i do audio work and I’m angling toward silence. It’s an i9-10850k 3. 6Ghz running at constant 4. 8 for stability, and the temperature stays below 50 degrees Celsius easily so far in a dry 70 degree F ambient environment.
I am waiting on a set of Noctua case fans and am currently running the new system with the stock fans in the Fractal Define 7 which do not allow motherboard speed control. It’s not loud but it’s not silent.
I made an early attempt to overclock to 5. 2 GHz and the system broke to the point of needing to reinstall windows, but otherwise it’s been snappy and all programs are running better than I could have imagined before with seemingly no stress on the system.
Not sure how much this heatsink has to do with that, but it’s definitely not hurting. I guess I should also say that I’ve never manually overclocked before and thought I should try to get the most out of what I have going on, but might have done something wrong.
In any case, I’m sure this cooler was not the reason the 5. 2 overclock failed. I’m a little concerned about the weight of the heatsink but honestly once it was put together it seemed like it wasn’t pulling on anything too hard.
The screw system between the heatsink and the mounts was a little janky coming together. Only two screws, each on opposite sides of the processor. The male side is on the mounting brackets, and on the heatsink itself is a female screw with springs.
I’m not sure why there are springs; they may only serve to complicate the process of achieving an optimal mate between the plate on the heatsink and the processor, obfuscating the amount of torque you’re applying.
Mounting the heatsink to its own brackets was the hardest part. One screw would go in, then I would twist and twist on the other but the screw wouldn’t mate with the bolt. I went back and forth several times, easily getting the first screw to engage and being careful not to tighten it any more than necessary for it to simply be engaged, then moving to the other to try to get it to engage and twisting and twisting and it just wouldn’t.
This process did give me an opportunity to see that I had not applied enough thermal paste, then to see that I had applied too much and wipe it off the edges of things. (Microfiber cloth, 99% alcohol.
) Mounting would seem more stable to me if there were four screws through a structure integrated into the heatsink itself and then into the brackets that come in from behind the motherboard, but then it would be less modular and different models would have to be made for different processors and it would probably cost 7x as much and apparently this way is fine so.
let’s do it. Seems nice, keeps things cool. Just be careful not to bust anything when you’re screwing it all together.
This thing is awesome. It’s tall, but if you have the space for it in the case, it is worth it. Not too difficult to install, just pay attention and make sure everything is facing the right direction.
The offset is perfect to clear RAM with heatsinks on them. Lets my 11700K run full out with no thermal throttling even with a little overclocking. I did swap out the stock fan with a black one and added the optional second one.
Repurposed the original as an extra top exhaust. Came with all the extra hardware needed which is a nice touch.
Ah the old D15. In a field where tech moves so fast like computers a part being produced and considered high quality year after year is special. If you not the biggest stickler of minor noises from you PC I genuinely recommend this cooler.
Be careful tho the fins are sharp so when working on your rig you can easily draw blood. I’ve done it on both of these I’ve installed and well. Just just say it’s taken the blood needed to perform the black magic it uses to keep you cpu cool.
In small builds, the large air coolers aren’t an option. With a height of 65mm and four heatpipes, the Noctua NH-L9x65 is a small but efficient CPU cooler. Its small size makes it perfect for ITX and mATX builds and also doesn’t get in the way of RAM or graphics cards.
The cooler also uses a 92mm fan. The premium fan mounted on the heatsink uses fully automatic speed control with PWM so it runs without maintennance and keeps the most quiet speed possible at all times.
In addition, Noctua’s own NT-H1 thermal paste is included to be the heat-transferring paste.
After my upgrade, I’m building a computer for someone else. The case won’t allow for an AIO cooler or a tower-type cooler, so I went with this low-profile Noctua. This kit is specifically for the AM4 socket.
Installation took me about 10 minutes, and two of those minutes were devoted to applying thermal paste to the first-gen Ryzen 7 CPU. I booted and went straight to the BIOS, where the temp reported was in the low 40s.
That’s right where it should be with the CPU on idle. Without any heatsink or fan, the CPU immediately rose to the 90s and shut down – all within about 35 seconds. I touched the CPU and was shocked at how hot it got.
I haven’t installed an OS, but it looks like this should do the trick for this mini-build. I purchased this over competing products because of Noctua’s reputation. Upon opening the box, I found that everything was very organized, and the materials seemed to be of very high quality.
This cooler is working beautifully on my recently-updated firewall in 3U rackmount case. The cooler on the old board (an AM2+ Athlon64 X2) crapped out and the CPU and RAM on that board was a bit too under-powered to handle the amount of traffic flowing through the gateway, so I ended up swapping some boards around to replace it with an older-model Intel quad-core.
Unfortunately, the Noctua cooler that had been on the replacement board/CPU wouldn’t fit in my 3U case so I needed something new. The HN-L9x65 fit perfectly on the old Noctua mount (so I didn’t even have to replace the backplate) and easily fits in the case (I think it’d even make it in a 2U case, though I haven’t measured).
Perfectly quiet and given the longevity of Noctua fans, I expect it to run for years and years without trouble. I think I might even pick up another one to resurrect the AM2+ board (if it will fit in a 2U case) and give that a second life as a small Linux server.
I am using this on a 10600k and it idles around 28C, will hit 55C to 60C under load. So works for cooling. What really impresses me about Noctua coolers in general, I have several others, is how well engineered they are and how well thought out the product is.
The directions provided are excellent and the design is such that install is super easy, significantly easier than other brands I have used. I tried my first Noctua cooler last year and wished I would have tried them sooner.

I had no trouble installing the fan, the clips were a bit snug. Came with thermal paste pre-applied to the base plate. I didn’t use the instructions, but read them after I installed it and they provide clear pictures.
I did a stress test on the benchmarking software Prime95 with the CPU, a Ryzen 5 2600, at stock settings and occasionally one core would hit 57 C with the other 5 at 37 C to 40 C. (Prime95 pushes your CPU to 100% load on all cores for the duration of the test) So I was really, really happy with the performance of this cooler since at no time during normal usage will my CPU be under constant 100% load.
This is a great cooler for any of the Ryzen 5s, and probably good for the Ryzen 7s, too. I also tested this on an Intel i5-11600k. On Prime95 the CPU hit 98 C-100 C at full load, with all cores running at 4.
6 – 4. 9 GHz. The cooler’s rated TDP is 150W, the 11th gen i5’s TDP is 125W, but when Turbo Boost kicks in it draws a lot more power and the Pure Rock 2 can’t keep up. If you’re not stress-testing it, it goes between 30C-45C, so if you’re not a power user, it should be fine for the i5-11600k.
The non-K versions of the 125W 10th and 11th gen Intel chips may do better. This is a fantastic solution. I was really impressed with its performance on the Ryzen 5. It stays really, really cool under harsh conditions and with the case panels on, you can’t hear a thing from the fan, and the all-black look is great.
I would be curious to see the performance difference when a second fan is added. Overall, a good buy.
From a guy who does very little in the way of system building. Cooler was recommended by the salesman when I didn’t have a clue on selection. Cooler seems quite large but up to the task. The design has some designed offset for clearance of memory and possibly other parts.
For a novice, the instructions are not very clear about a few steps of the assembly and orientation of the cooler on top of the CPU (for best parts clearance). The instructions are seriously deficient in deciding on which side of the cooler to attach the fan (parts clearance?), fan cord orientation (maybe nearest the mother board connector?), and air flow direction (maybe through cooler and towards back panel?).
The cooler came with thermal grease already in place – so I gooped it around while trying to confirm a viable orientation. I also did not need to buy separate thermal grease. In my 10 year old case, I had to remove some case ducting that was intended for much lower profile “pancake” CPU fans.
The Pure Rock 2 is an awesome CPU cooler, it keeps my 12400F under 60 at gaming load, with it usually averaging between 52 and 56 while in more CPU intensive games. It looks great, the black and silver should fit nicely with any build.
It’s also super easy to install, if you (like me) have had trouble mounting some tower coolers, this one is about as easy as it gets. As promised it’s also nearly silent, even at load. For me it ticks all the boxes, keeps my CPU nice and cool, and is quiet and easy to install Not to mention as someone who wanted to go for as little RBG as possible, this does a great job while still looking very nice.
Recommended by more than 150 leading international websites and magazines, Noctua’s NH-U12P series has become a benchmark in premium quality quiet cooling. The new NH-U12P SE2 now comes with two NF-P12 fans for further improved performance and adds support for LGA1156 as well as LGA1366 via the latest SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system.
Topped off with Noctua’s award-winning NT-H1 thermal compound, the NH-U12P SE2 forms a complete quality package that continues the NH-U12P series’ legacy of superb quiet cooling performance.
The cooler fits the case perfectly. It also leaves about 2-3mm clearance between itself and 1st (yes, 1st, not 2nd) RAM socket on my motherboard when installed to blow air to the rear of the case and fans attached on each side.
So, essentially, it is 2-3mm between the fan and the 1st (closest to the CPU) memory slot. Also, P183 case has an opening on the back side of the motherboard, around CPU area, so removing motherboard was not necessary.
The unit is built very well. Installation is straight forward. Fans are quieter than my 2 case fans, which are very quiet too, so I don’t hear cooler fans even if I try very very hard. With SSO bearing system fans are expected to last a long time.
I purchased liquid cooling system first, but it was leaking on arrival. I was uneasy about liquid cooling to begin with, but the incident made me put liquid cooling idea aside. Noctua I believe is an excellent choice.
I would recommend and purchase it again with no hesitation.
This is my second Noctua cooler, and I am just amazed at how good they are (the other is a NH-C12P SE14). It is very quiet, and it reduced temps on my i7 3770k at 3. 5 GHz at full load from low 70’s C to high 50’s C OCed to 4.
2 GHz! Note that it is pretty big, so make sure you have a case that is big enough to support it. I have G. Skill RipJaws RAM modules on my MSI G77A-GD65 mobo, and it looks like I would have to move the fan up on the heatsink slightly in order to clear them if I had one in DIMM slot 1 (which I don’t).
I don’t think that would be much of a problem if it came to it. It’s not really a con because these things have to be big to be effective. By the way, I don’t understand why people are complaining about the mounting clips for the fan(s).
I thought it was pretty easy to install, and it makes the fan very secure. The whole unit in general is just very sturdy and mounts exceptionally well. I will gladly spend a few extra dollars in the future and buy another Noctua heatsink.
I’ve had this cooler for about 4 months and It hasn’t skipped a beat on my 130W TDP i7-950. I can run an all night compile jop and she’ll never throttle back, I get every clock cycle through thick and thin.
Basically I have no thermal worries. So, I’m thinking of getting another one for a socket 1150 CPU build I made. I could get a cheaper one since that CPU doesn’t have as high a TDP rating as my 1366, but why? If I want to upgrade that CPU this cooler will cool whatever i throw at it especially now that wattage is going lower due to smaller lithography.
Also since I’ve seen this one working I trust it. Now if only Noctua would start making LED fans.
The Ben Nevis from the manufacturer Alpenföhn knows how to impress on the one hand with its fantastic price-performance ratio, but on the other hand also in terms of performance and volume. The three 6 mm thick copper heatpipes are pressed directly onto the CPU and thus absorb the heat directly from the processor and then pass it on to the countless aluminium fins without any detours.
This process ensures very good cooling with conventional heat-conducting paste. The already installed 120 mm fan, which also supports PWM, provides a strong air flow of 95. 14 m³/h through the fine aluminium fins for a fast and efficient dissipation of heat.
Despite its very good cooling capacity of 140 Watts TDP, the fan is surprisingly quiet and operates at a maximum of 20. 2 dB (A) when rotating at the highest speed of 1,600 rpm.
This cooler is quite a bit bigger than my original one which was about stock cooler size, but this cooler fitted well into a very limited space on a Micro motherboard. It runs very quiet and I found it very effective at cooling with an average temperature drop of around 20 degrees and worst case 17 degrees lower than my previous cooler.
Very easy to fit but the only negative was that it did not come with the AMD mounting kit but luckily for me I required the Intel kit, but it is supposed to have both? Very good value for money.
It is almost dead quiet after running some applications to configure the fans and temperture. Using Intel 4790K and Asus Gene Z97 motherboard and Super flower 850W. For the money, extremely nice catch.
And also, extremely easy to build with the motherboard and processor. The easiest so far in my exeperience.
The NH-U12A 120-mm premium cooler is the latest, fifth generation of Noctua’s award-winning NH-U12 series. In order to get even more performance out of the 120-mm form factor, it is equipped with two of the particularly quiet flagship fan NF-A12x25 PWM and features a completely re-developed heat sink with 7 heat pipes and a larger surface for even better heat dissipation.
In this way, the NH-U12A can compete with many 140-mm CPU coolers, while offering the case and PCIe compatibility of the 120-mm class. The high-quality complete package is rounded off by the proven SecuFirm2 multi-socket assembly system and Noctua’s renowned NT-H1 quality thermal compound.
Its excellent cooling performance, outstanding compatibility and excellent smoothness make the NH-U12A a true premium solution for the highest demands!.
I am extremely satisfied with this cooler. It was nice and easy to install, instructions very clear. Amazing compatibility with a variety of socket types. It is a nice compact design and fits perfectly in my P300 case.
I only use one fan on this cooler since the second fan would be a bit too close to the rear exhaust case fan in my setup. However even with 1 fan, this cooler manages to keep my i7-10700(non-k) under 70°C when all cores are at full load which is excellent and is a massive improvement from my old M9i (which had temps reach 80-90 on full load).
I would highly recommend this cooler to anyone with a powerful CPU.
Insanely simple and easy to install. I used to be scared by the size and weight of big CPU coolers. But these days they are so fantastic. Extremely happy to have got this for my 5900x rather than an AIO water cooler.
I thought I was going to have some difficulty installing this in an already built pc but nope, it was stupidly easy.

Reviews From Real Customers
The Noctua cpu cooler is a quiet, compact CPU cooler that fits very nicely inside my ITX-mini case. It was easy to install, and it has run without incident as I’ve maxed out my new linux box with multithreaded applications in scientific computing.
I have no trouble keeping all 16 virtual cores busy handling thousands of queued threads running in parallel on my midrange 8 CPU Ryzen chip, and while I can hear the fan spin up, it hasn’t been a bother, and there has been no adverse overheating, even with sustained maximum use.
The hardest part was unpacking the *naming* convention. Noctua NH-L9a is for the AM4. The Noctual NH-L9i is the intel mothernboard version. The difference is clear *after* you see them side by side, but not before.
Microcenter was decent about swapping my mispurchased Intel version for the correct AMD version.
Overall, this cpu cooler serves its purpose. My case has two motherboards in it and the stock Wraith cooler on the second board was obstructing my second and third PCI-e slots. This cooler does run several degrees hotter than the Wraith Cooler due to having a smaller heatsink.
It was slightly difficult to install on the mini-ITX board due to the wider spread of the heatsink. But these problems were expected going into it. On the plus side, the fan is sufficiently silent even without the low noise adapter, which I would not suggest using as it makes the cooler run even hotter.
My biggest complaint is that the fan is not a standard size fan, and as a result I’m stuck with the hideously ugly colors that don’t match the rest of my case at all. It would be nice if there was a black or clear fan that would fit on this, preferably with an RGB option.
The NH-U9B SE2 is a compact premium cooler in the tradition of the classic NH-U9 series, which has received more than 100 recommendations and awards in the international press. The new SE2 version is perfectly suited for use in quiet HTPCs or smaller enclosures and now also supports LGA1156/1155/1150 and LGA1366 thanks to the latest SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system.
The all-round high-quality package is rounded off by Noctua’s award-winning NT-H1 thermal compound and two NF-B9 premium fans for outstanding cooling performance at a minimum noise level.
If you are looking for a high performance air cooling for your CPU this product is a good choice. This was the first time I have swapped a CPU cooler and my experience was quite good. I realized I needed to replace my CPU fan after I installed a Happauge TV Tuner card and started regularly processing large video files to burn TV shows I recorded off the air to BD.
Here’s my system. ASUS P5Q Deluxe MB w/Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q9650 @ 3. 00 Ghz. 8 Gigs of ram GTX 240 Nvidia GPU I ran PC Probe to see how my temperatures were doing for CPU and MB while processing video files.
I was alarmed to find temperatures were running 70+ degrees Celsius while processing and around 50 C when not running much. I looked online and it seems these temperatures were too hot, maybe damaging to my CPU.
So I shopped for a while on what to buy and was deciding between liquid cooling and air cooling. I found several popular brands but in a NewEgg review of a CoolerMaster water cooling system someone mentioned this brand Noctua.
I decided to try this product for several reasons. My MB is an older socket an LGA 775 which many of the coolers didn’t mention support for 775 sockets and many of the coolers had huge fans that I determined wouldn’t fit in my case an older Antec ATX case with small chassis fan ports.
Other factors was the quiet performance of these fans which was important to me. I was also concerned about how well the cooler assembly may fit in my case and near other components on my MB. This cooler was a little smaller and the listed dimensions seemed to be able to fit.
I went through the install procedure today and after 2 careful hours of dissembling and reassembling I plugged everything in and started processing video files to get my CPU running 90 to 95% and my current CPU temp is hovering around 35 C and MB is 42 C.
I am also running my TV Card watching live TV and have other background things running. So far so good but I expect continued high performance. The fan runs smooth and quiet. I noticed my CPU fan head on the MB has 4 pins and the Noctua cable had only 3 pins like chassis fans.
The cable still worked great and I noticed that the CPU fan RPM stays around 1800rpm now. I wasn’t sure that would happen since the original cooler had the 4th pin. Conclusion: This fan was a good solution for me with limited space in my case, crowding on my MB, and performance.
I hope to extend the life of my computer with this purchase and crank out BD discs and other video projects. I think the dramatic temperature differences are from several factors, not just this product.
1. I cleaned out my MB of dust, cleaned off old thermal paste, and improved air flow of my case by placing fans to draw from front and blow out back. 2. This product definitely improved cooling performance from its quality construction, size, good fans, and probably a better thermal paste I had then before.
CPU coolers are one of the trickiest parts of building or upgrading a system. Installing it, like any CPU cooler with the main board already in the case, takes some work AND PATIENCE. Your case has to have a cut out in back to expose the back side of the main board which most modern ATX cases have.
I used some small pieces of tape to temporarily hold the back plate in place while assembling the two piece mounting brackets from the front – no big deal. I cleaned off the old compound with rubbing alcohol and ‘Q’ tips.
If you approach the project systematically, don’t rush, and follow the procedures step by step, it will work out well. With this cooler, CPU temps and fan noise will be dramatically reduced over stock coolers.
I originally bought this for my HTPC which needed a smaller HSF. The U9B fit the lian-li case perfectly. When I retired that machine and built my server using my old Bloomfield hardware, I was pleased to see that the mounting hardware used on my older P4 Socket 775 system was perfectly compatible with all of the newer socket types and that I could transfer the same mounting plate and brackets from that motherboard onto the Bloomfield motherboard (or even haswell or ivy bridge if I want) without digging through my box of parts to find any extra mounting hardware.
That alone made me glad I bought this particular cooler years ago as any extra brackets or hardware at this point would have certainly been long gone and that would have yielded a useless cooler. My 920 is clocked at 3.
75 GHz and under CPU stress testing with AIDA64, the hottest it gets is in the upper 90’s which sounds hot but Bloomfield (at least the 920’s) were notoriously hot and despite regularly sustaining these temperatures for hours each day almost every day for over 4 years now, I have 100% confidence that the Noctua can cool my i7 as silently and effectively as the water cooling kit I had on it previously.
The ncase m1 is a great air cooler for small form factor builds. It has a simple, clean design and it performs well. The only downside is that it is a bit expensive. Overall, the ncase m1 is a great air cooler for small form factor builds and it is worth the price.
