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
levels.

"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.

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