The NH-L12 features a dual PWM fan setup in the form of a NF-F12 (120mm) PWN fan on top and an NF-B9 (92mm) fan positioned underneath. If you're dealing with minimal clearance in a highly compact mini-ITX enclosure you also have the option of switching things up for just the NF-B9 fan, which reduces the overall height of the cooler to only 66mm.
