Noctua NH-U12DO A3 for AMD Opteron workstations and Servers CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Keeps System Cool & Quiet 02/16/2014

This review is from: Noctua NH-U12DO A3 for AMD Opteron workstations and Servers CPU Cooler

Pros: keeps system cool and quiet. better than the usual heat sink and fan for server processor.

Running Hyper-V, iSCSI Initiator, and other various server apps (i.e. SQL, Cluster Node, File & Storage, etc.)

With load, nominal temp (processor) is around 100° F;+/- 5°

Cons: non so far, however expensive. but you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: System Config:
System Config:
8 - 4GB Kingston Hyper-X (DDR3) 1600 (non-ecc)
1 Opteron 6282 ES (2.6 GHz 16 Thread 8 Core, according to Windows Server 2012 R2)

ever since this was in production (since 9 Jan 14), it had less (only 1) issues than its predecessor even though still utilizing non robust memory (desktop edition)

Also tried 4 - 8 GB GSkills and seems to take it, again non-robust.
1 Nuctua NH-U12DO A3
Lian Li PC-70 (had to re-align some of the raiser screw for the board, but most actually have pre-align)
1 nVidia GeForce 7300 GS (did not want to use the built in video due to high resolution monitor, HP W2558HC)
1 Rosewill RBR1000-M (has built-in dual EPS for CPUs' extra power)
1 reflashed Dell Perc H310 (RAID card 6GB SAS)
1 HITACHI HUS156045VLS600 (shared cluster drive)
1 SEAGATE ST3450857SS (shared cluster drive for Hyper-V Replication Broker)
1 IBM-ESXS VPBA300C3ETS11 (OS Drive, with 1 local virtual DC on a separate partition)

Other Thoughts: this board replaced a desktop board utilized as server.

Also tried 4 - 8 GB GSkills and seems to take it, again non-robust.
