Noctua NH-L12 120mm & 92mm SSO Bearing PWM Fans CPU Cooler

5 out of 5 eggs Great little cooler 06/21/2016

This review is from: Noctua NH-L12 120mm & 92mm SSO Bearing PWM Fans CPU Cooler

Pros: Keeps my 6700k in my silverstone raven rvz01b Suprisingly cool. I'm only using a thermaltek Riing 12 to cool it. Temp avg 28 ish c idle (fairly warm room, about 75ish f). I have not seen load temps go above 65c while playing ark, crysis 3, and other games, so it seems like a very good cooler

Cons: Some argument can be made on the price. Honestly I was expecting better polymer/plastic fans, they do feel cheap, and are a little flimsy.I cannot comment on their cooling ability or noise level as I didn't even try the fans

Other Thoughts: All in all it does a great job, and out of 4 coolers I tried, this one actually fit inside this case with trident z 3200 mhz cl14 memory and an asus maximus impact viii mobo. I had to manipulate the cooler (bend and work it before putting it on) in order for it to not only be low enough that the side panel with the case fan on it snug up against it, but so it also clears the vrm board and memory. There is about .5mm clearance on the memory and board, while the heatsink just touches the fan. The fan being mounted on the side panel perfectly aligns it over the heatsink. I don't know how it worked out so nicely, but it is perfect. Got lucky I guess

Pros: Great cpu, is very quick and responsive with a Samsung 850 pro ssd. Mated to an asus maximus viii impact mobo and works great!

Cons: Initially tried to run at 1.3v+ but I set the voltage manual to 1.2, runs like a charm even when it boosts. A little on the pricey side if not on sale

Other Thoughts: For the current price it can't be beat, as of this writing it's on sale for 19% off. So around 314. It's a great cpu for a fantastic price. Get it while it's on sale!

Pros: Memory runs at the rated 3200mhz with xmp profile enabled. Everything runs fine on an asus maximus impact viii with a 6700k. No problems of any kind. I dunno what else to say. If your going to do 3000mhz+ memory, get the cl14 stuff. You can't beat it. Low latency for 300 mhz ram == win

Cons: Ram is high, but that's normal for memory with these heatsinks

Other Thoughts: Even tbough the ram is tall, I still fit a noctua NH-L12 in a silverstone raven rvz01b case with that impact viii, had to manipulate the cooler though to get the right hight to clear the side panel, memory, and raised vrm of the motherboard, but it works perfectly.
