The Austrian company Noctua, specializing in the production of cooling systems for PCs, has announced the NH-U12A processor cooler. The novelty has become an improved version of the NH-U12S coolers, released in 2005.
The Noctua NH-U12A is equipped with an aluminum heat sink with seven heatpipes and two 120mm NF-A12x25 PWM fans. The impeller rotation speed range is 450-2000 rpm, and the maximum noise level is 22.6 dBA. In terms of its efficiency, the cooler is comparable to models equipped with 140mm turntables, the manufacturer assures.
The Noctua NH-U12A should go on sale at a suggested price of $ 100.
