Today we are testing the Noctua NH-L12 CPU cooler, which has a horizontal heatsink, four heatpipes, and two fans (one 120 mm and the other 92 mm wide). Let’s test it!
The NH-L12 cardboard box is shown in Figure 1. It seems like Noctua abandoned the beige tones, since this box has a beautiful white and brown combination.
Figure 2 shows the contents of the box: the cooler itself, a syringe of thermal compound, manuals, a case badge, and installation hardware.
Figure 3 displays the Noctua NH-L12.
This cooler is discussed in detail in the following pages.
