Icon17 Noctua introduces NH-U12F CPU-Cooler

Vienna, August 16th 2006 - Noctua today presented the NH-U12F, the new
version of the NH-U12 CPU-Cooler, which has earned over 100 awards and
recommendations from leading international web sites and magazines. The
NH-U12F can be rotated by 90° on all sockets, boasts full compatibility
with AMD's new AM2 socket and comes equipped with a Noctua NF-S12 120mm
fan, which has a minimum noise rating of only 8dB(A). Thanks to the 4
Dual-Heat-Pipes, 38 aluminium cooling fins with a total surface area of
more than 5000cm² and soldered joints for optimal heat-transfer, the
Noctua NH-U12F achieves superior cooling performance at minimum noise

"With the NH-U12F, we have implemented the 3 most frequent customer
requests regarding our NH-U12 cooler: A mounting system that makes it
possible to rotate the cooler by 90°, AM2 compatibility and the addition
of a sound-optimised premium fan", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua
CEO. "The NH-U12F is a well rounded, complete, high-quality solution
that provides maximum performance and quietness."

The NF-S12 fan used on the NH-U12F is equipped with a magnetically
centred, self lubricating oil-pressure bearing and employs a novel rotor
which was developed by the Austrian Institute for Heat-Transmission and
Fan Technology (Österreichisches Institut für Wärmeübertragung und
Ventilatorentechnik, ÖIWV). Thanks to the special optimisation of the
blade geometry towards ultra low noise application, the NF-S12 achieves
a flow rate of 81m³/h at a mere 17dB(A). Using the supplied
Ultra-Low-Noise adaptor, the noise level can be lowered to only 8dB(A)!

The new NH-U12F fits socket 775, 754, 939, 940 and AM2 and can be
rotated by 90° on all sockets to allow for an optimal positioning of the
cooler within the airflow inside the case and to evade compatibility
issues with non-compliant chipset coolers and RAM modules.

"In addition to factors such as cooling performance, quietness of
operation, long-term stability and compatibility, we attach great
importance to the reliability of the mounting system", says Mag. Roland
Mossig, Noctua CEO. "The SecuFirm™ mounting system of the NH-U12F makes
it possible to safely transport the assembled system without any risk
even though the cooler exceeds the 450g weight specification established
by Intel and AMD."

Noctua's SecuFirm™ mounting system guarantees optimal contact pressure
and maximum security thanks to the use of a backplate and spring-loaded

Technical specifications
Detailed specifications of the NH-U12F as well as the supplied NF-S12

Prices and availability
The NH-U12F will be available by the end of September. The recommended
retail price is EUR 54.90 / USD 64.90.
