Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 CPU Cooler Review
The NH-U12P has been considered one of the best, if not the best air CPU cooler. It is truly a master of engineering, with no detail overlooked in the design process. The cooler was built with, not only quality in mind, but price also. The price is easliy comparable to the Thermalright TRUE 120, but unlike the TRUE, it includes two fans. While you may be able to run the TRUE without a fan due to its great design, a fan lowers the temperatures by leaps and bounds.
Due to Intel moving on to the LGA1366 socket, the previous version of the NH-U12P was not able to support the new socket. Noctua quickly stepped up to the plate once again and has released a new hardware mount, so now the cooler works on the 1366 socket. One burning question remains, will this cooler perform as well on a new socket? Going by previous accomplishments of Noctua, I would be willing to bet it will come through.
As we all know, the Noctua has been around for long enough for many other companies to release new heat sinks that are better than previous designs. Will the Noctua be able to keep up with these newer coolers? Cooler Master, a veteran company, has released their V10 that claims to be the flagship of their new heat sink lineup. Will the SE1366 pull ahead of the V10, or will this new cooler on the scene pull ahead of one of the best heat sinks ever designed?
