I seriously doubt that video from Linus, it's very, very fishy. Also, not even Noctua claims that cooler can cool an overclocked 9900K, let alone something on the HEDT side.

Yeah, 9900K alone can draw 200W. Noctua is for 95W max, that's my guess.

Id peg it as closer to 140-150W max. The basic stock POS coolers that come with CPUs and especially older gen CPUs with no heatpipes, small amount of fins, and a sucky fan were even rated for 95w. This Noctua is significantly better than those were.

I really doubt that, considering AMD's stock Wraith Spire is 95W.

We can use this tier list as a reference...;
https://linustechtips.com/main/topic...nce-tier-list/

A few things first...
The Noctua D15 is rated at 220W+ and is a Tier 2 cooler
The Hyper 212 EVO is rated at 150W and is a Tier 7 cooler.
The Noctua U12A is rated as Tier 3...

Most likely the U12A is close to 200W. And oh... If you're still doubting the capabilities of air coolers vs water coolers... Look here, and simply as an example, look how the Noctua D15 beats the Cooler Master Masterliquid Pro 240 (which is rated at 240W) and the Corsair H115i;

D15 is 220W, U12A is, probably as you say, 200W. Whatever is kept at 78°C with U12A is far from 9900K or 200W.

Why does techpowerup show the U12A is only 1C cooler than the U12S?
8700K @4.8

i think the more serious question is why the NH-D15S only 1°C cooler than the NH-U12S.
not to mention NH-U12A being on par with NH-D15S sounds too good to be true.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

Linus is not the only one who made a review of the noctua and realized that it outperformed every generic AIO on the market though. Wouldn't surprise me tbh

Wow.. Imagine if Noctua had made this heatsink back in 2010 when GT's were everywhere, AIO's probably would have died out by now.

Cooling an i9 in Aviutl+x264 , on par with NH-D15S albeit with higher fan speed
