Noctua has announced a new addition to its NH-U series, the NH-U12P CPU cooler. The NH-U series is well known to European enthusiasts for its high efficiency and silent operation.
The new NH-U12P comes with an all new NF-P12 fan and NT-H1 thermal compound. The NF-P12 fan is specially designed for high-impedance usage, like CPU cooling. The new NH-U12P CPU cooler still provides silent operation, which is the key feature of Noctua's NH-U series. According to the press release, the NF-P12 fan uses SSO-Bearing, which should provide stability, quiet running and excellent performance in long-term usage.
The new NH-U12P uses the so called SecuFirm mounting system, and comes with mounting kits for socket LGA 775, AM2 and AM2+. Mounting kits for Intel Xeon CPUs are available on request. It will be available on November 28th, with a suggested retail price of EUR €56.90 / US$64.90.
