Noctua NH-U/C12P

post #1 of 780
Thread Starter 








And now with a C12P








As yes, the lesser known yet amazing cooler.

I've had mine for months now, and I can't stress enough how much I love this heatsink. Though, it seems to be pretty rare. Just lookin for anyone else who has one

[edit]

Well this thread went MUCH longer than anticipated, so here are a list of popular places (List provided by Jakob Dellinger of Noctua, thanks Jakob!) to purchase the NH-U12P and NH-C12P at reasonable prices in the US and one in UK

And the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme looks a lot like the Tuniq Tower 120 with straight edges and more heatpipes. And...do I really need to keep going on?

If I didn't already have the Thermalright SI-128 SE I'd definitely pick up the Noctua NH-C12P. I just prefer downdraft-style coolers. An extra 2c or on my processor versus ~7c lower temps on my chipset speaks for itself.

I thought that was an old DFI AMD board for a minute there. The flash really drowns out the orange and makes it look yellow.

Two of the RAm slots are actually yellow, but yes, i do know what you mean with the orange ones.

Looks great under UV lights though, really vibrant and solid.

Oh, I know - it just threw me off for a minute, since the board appeared AMD yellow, but definitely looked like an Intel socket.

Haha...I'm glad we have some fans of this heatsink, no pun intended.

Its got a great mounting setup unlike the true, this thing doesn't need a pressure mod or anything...no lapping either ...build quality is unreal too. But really, I love this thing because EVERYBODY has a true, and I like to be different.



The days when I ran passive in an open case



Good times



Pretty pipes



And the beast!
