Introduction

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.
