Intel's new Core i7 CPUs mark an exciting advance in processing power, but they definitely require a high quality heatsink if you want to cool them without excessive noise. Noctua offers easy entry into the world of premium quality quiet cooling with the NH-U12P SE1366, a premium value package that offers everything you need to cool Core i7 CPUs quietly.

Heat is drawn away from the CPU by the base of the copper heatsink and transferred up into the array of hi-grade aluminum fins for dissipation. A large 120mm fan spins on each side of the array blowing heated air away from the heatsink. The fans' support for PWM lets the BIOS control the speed of the fan based on the CPU's thermal needs – lowering the fans speed and noise during off-peak cycles.

The NH-U12P SE1366 ships with Noctua's SecuFirm2 mounting system that combines outstanding reliability, optimal contact pressure and easy, straightforward installation on the new LGA1366 socket. A tube of Noctua's pro-grade NT-H1 thermal compound is bundled in as well.

  • newegg Excellent Quiet Cooling Performance The Noctua NH-U12P consists of 4 dual heat pipes, soldered joints and widely-spaced aluminum cooling fins to guarantee optimal heat dissipation even at low fan speeds.
  • newegg Dual NF-P12 Premium Fan Dual NF-P12 cooling fans feature psycho-acoustic optimizations and Noctua's premium-grade SSO-bearing to achieve exceptional quietness and long-term stability. With the supplied Low-Noise Adapter (L.N.A.) and Ultra-Low-Noise Adapter (U.L.N.A.), you can fine tune the fan speeds for the optimum balance between cooling performance and noise level.
  • newegg SecuFirm2 LGA 1366 Mounting System The SecuFirm2 Mounting System provides superior reliability and contact pressure on the Intel LGA1366 platform, and features one-piece fastening brackets with integrated springs and screws for easy installation.
  • newegg NT-H1 Thermal Compound The included pro-grade NT-H1 thermal compound provides extremely low thermal resistance as well as excellent pliability and spreadability. The NT-H1 is packaged in a syringe for easy control of the amount applied.

Cooler interfered with Ram 1/15/2019 9:47:17 PM

Pros: kept chip cool for 8 years

Cons: cooler mounted in a way I had to remove one of the fans corners with a saw so the ram would fit

Overall Review: before you build make certain the cooler will fit in the case and on the board

Yeah its huge. 11/4/2009 9:35:49 PM

Pros: Whisper quiet, and keeps my i7 super cool. This was far superior then the aftermarket fan that is suplied with my processor. Which as I am learning needs to have a robust cooler much like this Noctua.

Cons: When reading some of the reviews and performing my own self measuring no way did i figure this thing to be this large. I have a full tower which I am very happy i have, if not it probably would not fit.

Overall Review: One thing I had discovered during installation was i did not need to install both fans to keep the processor cool. This was great because it reduced the power consumption and reduced the sound, not that it needed to.

Top Notch Cooler 9/17/2009 8:52:14 PM

Pros: I'd have to say the highlight of this kit is the mounting system. It uses a clever (and initially a bit confusing) bracket system with a back plate for a positive stop attachment to the CPU. No need to worry about too much or too little torque as it's preset. When you hit the stop that it's job done pretty much idiot proof once you figure out how all the bits go together and the documentation uses very clear illustrations to helo you through this.

Cons: It is a good size cooler but coming from a V10 (now that's huge) I wouldn't say this was extraordinarily large. See other thoughts though for a bit of a snag I hit. I won't dock this cooler for it but you should be aware of this.

Overall Review: This is a very well thought out and engineered system to be sure. They even include vibration dampening strips that adhere to the fans so they don't transfer their vibration to the cooler thus keeping the sound down. This dampening strip caused the rear most fan to protrude enough that it was actually putting pressure on the A1 RAM sttick causing a failure to POST. I'm going to take the hit for this one as I could have mounted the strip a bit more inboard and it should have been fine. Just be aware that you are going to be very, very close to the first RAM stick on a Rampage II Extreme. Can't speak for any other board. All things considered I;d say this is an exceptional air cooler and very well suited for modestly overclocked i7 systems.

Noctua Nh-u12p 9/17/2009 12:00:30 PM

Pros: This CPU Cooler is really nice and i don't know why people say is hard to install cause i installed in less then 20 minutes and it takes 20 minutes cause you need to take the motherboard out. My temps are normaly 40c and when the cpu is 100% goes to 70c and im overclocking from 2.6 to 3.6 (Intel i7 920) am very happy with this product .

Cons: Nothing

Huge 9/17/2009 7:45:22 AM

Pros: Lowers my core i7 cores by 15C easy. Doesn't add much noise, my temps not doing anything are at 40-46C. VERY TALL. Barely fits my case, and i have the largest one, that's because of the proc placement on the mobo too.

Cons: none

Excellent cooler for silent pc builders 9/16/2009 9:10:30 PM

Pros: quiet quiet quiet. not as heavy as i thought it would be. mostly easy install. if you want a silent pc without going to liquid cooled this is a good option.

Cons: Attaching the fan clips to the bottom were the only difficulty to the install. they created a bit of a sweaty brow moment.

Overall Review: If you're building a HTPC or DAW as I am this is an excellent option.

This is a Beast!!! 9/16/2009 11:51:40 AM

Pros: -Includes 2 120mm fans
-Runs very quiet, even with both fans installed and running at full speed
-Keeps my OC'ed i7 920 very cool

Cons: -Very large. Don't let the pictures fool you, the reviewers on this site are NOT exaggerating. Be sure it fits in your case before purchasing.

-While instructions are clear, make sure to pay very close attention to the pictures, as there is not much in the form of written instructions describing how to install it. If you don't pay attention the pictures, you may initially install it incorrectly.

-Fan color leaves much to be desired.

Overall Review: Great cooler. Works wonders and provides excellent cooling to the CPU. Large fans can help overall airflow in case.
