I would recommend the Noctua because they make amazing fans. They are known for being quiet but extremely efficient. The cooler will do the job just fine as well.

To help your decision, you can check out some unboxings to really see how much money the company puts into their products - from marketing, to packaging, to the final product.

That's probably not the strongest argument.

If it were me, and I didn't have a Threadripper, and had a decent case, I would get True Spirit 140 Power from Thermalright.

Probably the best hs you will find. Gives all the big boys a run for their money, and its only 50 bucks. Add another 20 for a TY-143 and give them all a spank.

I have the NH-U12S on a 1700X I keep 100% utilized 7/24. At stock clocks temps range from 55 - 60C depending on the project run, ambient 18 - 20C. It's fine for what it is, but that's not going to provide a lot of headroom for overclocking. It is very quiet.

For real, though. These guys are solely devoted to innovating thermal solutions. I'd rather go for a company that only does one thing extremely well as opposed to one that includes cooling as part of their diversified product portfolio.

Quote:
"200 prototypes later, the mad airflow scientists at Noctua have made a new type of plastic for their best fan yet ... a liquid crystal polymer, part of the same family as Kevlar ... allows the fan to be quieter ... covers more surface area of the impeller zone than the standard fan"
https://www.pcgamer.com/noctua-spent...ngest-fan-yet/

I was really amazed at how much research went into their products! Owning one, I admit it is really silent even at full speed. Plus the actual heatsink performs really well.

It keeps my Ryzen 5 2600 @ 4.1Ghz 1.35v around 38-40c idle and 50-60c under gaming load.

I also like the fact that it comes with a wide array of socket adapters for both Intel and AMD!

You're enthusiasm is understandable. It reminds me of the first time I owned a Rolex. The materials, the craftsmanship, the weight, the precision. I was in love with the idea of it all. They make a nice watch, like Noctua makes a nice cooler, and fan. The quality is undeniable, but it doesn't make them the best.. That's just my opinion, there are many more just like it, but this one is mine

i don't think he said Noctua was the best, only recommending it because they're amazing.

though on an aside, NH-U14S + NF-A12x25 would work out better in general with NF-A12x25 in push and NF-A15 in pull, the stock fan NF-A15 alone is simply too low RPM.
but before you replace your NH U12P, try to buy one NF-A12x25 first then replace it's push-fan, you should see a large improvement.

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.

I think people think they are amazing because of the materials, and craftsmanship. Its not what the vast majority are used to. I don't think they are amazing, very good yes. But not amazing.

Currently using the U12S AM4 on my R7 2700. With just one fan that only goes to around 800 rpm, it cools my stock 2700 65W TDP to 51 -52 c gaming. Ambient is around 24-25c. May have to replace the fan with two higher spinning fans for when i get the 12 core.

At 4GHz all core the fan ramps up to 850 rpm and the cpu temp goes to about 70c. Power Package reads around 135W using HWINFO.

Why are people citing Linus for testing figures? Did something change in the past year? Last time I checked he was just a walking advertising machine.
