Noctua NH-U12P SE2 CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Secrets Bronze Award


The Noctua NH-U12P SE2 CPU cooler has a tower heatsink, four heatpipes, and two 120 mm fans. We tested the first version of the NH-U12P almost three years ago. The main differences between the NH-U12P and the NH-U12P SE2 (Special Edition 2) are that the SE2 has the SecuFirm2 mounting mechanism and comes with two fans.

The brown and blue box has a transparent window that allows the customer to see part of the cooler, as illustrated in Figure 1.
