[Pictures 56k/warn] Noctua NH-U12P Test Results

Second OC Results: 3.2ghz - 31 idle/43 degrees Load - STABLE
click on the picture for full screen


This is still with the MX-2, I'm going to change the TIM to AS5 because this cooler in reviews does not perform well with thinner TIM's. Sound recordings coming soon :]

edit:
I get about a 1 degree temp drop in core temp now that im using AS5. that's good, and AS5 supposedly has a burn in time, so hopefully i'll see a 2-3 degree more drop :]. 3.2 stable, constant use. i think this cooler is doing a fine job for how quiet it is.


First OC RESULTS : 2.9Ghz -32/40 degrees Load

after about 30 minutes of testing. im going to test it longer tonight when i get home from work, then ill start bumping it up and ocnig it more. stock voltage ;].





Comparative to review sites are getting:

Average load - 42
Average CPU Ghz - 2.45 Ghz
Average delta - 14 degree delta
Not bad for a 55 cfm fan, huh? This thing is super quiet. my other case fans sound like
vacuums compared to this fan. I'm using MX-2 paste, from what I read it dislikes thinner pastes like the MX-2, so I'll be switching to AS5 when I can find some :]!

The NH-U12P is the same heatsink, as the former Notcua heatsink, but with a nickel platting for color and the awesome new Noctua Fan that gives the CFM/dB as follows:

Lighting Review:

Ultra. Quiet. This thing makes my Scythe fans sound like beasts. Very solid build, the fan feels solid as a fan should. The fan, on full still sounds ultra quiet. The presentation of the entire thing is impeccable, the instructions are extremely easy to follow and read. installation is easy, but needs a back plate so you WILL have to remove your motherboard. I bought it for 70$ shipped [with taxes, im in california] as compared to a 60$ TRUE, which would cost 8-10$ for a fan, and would not sound as quiet as this baby. if you want something that performs and is pretty quiet, this is right up your ally.
































CPU TEMP- 17C ON BOOT!!

Coretemp detects it as 29 degrees though... hrmmm. maybe some reseating is in order. as for now, i have to do homework, so ill reseat it and oc it soon.

Wow dying is an understatement. Those temps are insane! I also would like to hear how quiet it is because nautuca stuff is supposed to be quiet but it's very expensive non the less. Post pics and all

i hope it can hang until tomorrow, but god yeah it's dieing. idling at 55 degrees ? seriously. this new fan is suppose to be the quietest CFM/dB ration out there, but the fan alone costs about 22$.

i think im gonna replace my scythe in my P180 case [my e6400 build] with some low RPM kaze's though since it sits in the living room.

Yeah the Noctua are supposed to be very quiet. I have the Kaze they are really quiet i have the 1600 rpm get the 1200 if you want silence. The 1600 is quiet but the 1200 will be silent. Check out my sig for the video.

I am in love with Noctua fans. Can't wait to see how well your Noctua cooler performs.

Very nice guide! Believe it or not, it was the exact same thing I was going to do, cut out the weird grills as I know for a fact they create a lot of noise. I currently have [4x] 120mm Scythe SFF21F S-FLEXâ„¢ Case Fan (63.7 CFM/28 dBA), and hoping to switch to the 120mm Scythe Kaze 800 RPM "Slip Stream" (40.17 CFM, 10.7 dBA) or the (68.54 CFM, 24 dBA) version. awesome guide BTW.
