SPECIFICATIONS: Before we take a closer look on the structure of the Noctua NH-U12P cooler, we will take a look on the specifications of the fan.
What is worth noticing with this fan is that is has 9 blades (7 is the standard), and also, according to its specifications, produced very little noise.
THE PRODUCT: We’ll now have a look on the construction of the Noctua NH-U12P cooler, which, as already mentioned, is a classical tower cooler.
There has been room for 4 heat pipes on the Noctua NH-U12P cooler, which form a “U”. This in fact means that the Noctua NH-U12P cooler has a whole 8 heat pipes leading away the heat. The entire cooler is kept in an aluminum look, which also counts the base of the cooler.
The base has been given a nice finish and is completely plain. Even though the base of the Noctua NH-U12P has this nice finish, it is in no way mirror-like as we saw it with the recently tested coolerhead from Koolance. The 4 heat pipes are situated between two plates, of which the lower one comprises the base of the cooler.
