Introduction and SpecificationsNoctua
is a fairly new company, they launched their first products back in December 2005, the NH-U 12 and NH-U 9
, both are high performance CPU heatsinks which kept our test system quiet and cool. More recently they’ve added case fans to their repertoire which are custom designed
for maximum airflow with lowest noise in low air restriction areas. Today we test their latest addition to their quiet computing product range, a chipset cooler for Intel and AMD motherboards.
