Street Price: GBP £85 | USD $89 | AUD $169
Do Noctua really need any introduction? They are pioneers in the world of cooling solution and are known the world over for designing and producing some of the quietest, best performing coolers on the market. They have a product for every scenario imaginable, whether you’re building SFF or going big with E-ATX, Noctua has a product for every situation.
Today we’ll be taking a look at Noctua’s latest addition to their 120mm CPU cooler lineup. Some weeks back they announced the NH-D12L, a shorter version their usual 120mm coolers – providing a heigh of just 145mm. The provision of a smaller CPU cooler will open up opportunities for those with smaller sized cases that still want to tap into the excellent performance of a 120mm CPU cooler.
Can this new cooler perform just as well with a shorter design? Let’s find out!
Noctua on the NH-D12L:
The NH-D12L is a low-height 120mm class CPU cooler that has been conceived to combine outstanding quiet cooling performance with superior case compatibility. At a height of only 145mm (13mm lower than Noctua’s regular 120mm models), it fits many 4U enclosures as well as narrower tower cases that have been previously limited to solutions with 92mm fans.
