Noctua NH-L12 Low Profile High Performance CPU Cooler

Product Overview

The NH-L12 is a low-profile quiet cooler designed for use in small form factor cases and HTPC environments. With its flexible NF-F12 (120mm) / NF-B9 (92mm) dual PWM fan setup, the NH-L12 can be configured either for full performance in dual fan mode or extra-low profile (66mm) with the top fan removed. Bundled with the award-winning NT-H1 thermal compound and Noctua's SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system, the NH-L12 packs everything a premium quality quiet cooler needs into a highly compact package.

120/92mm dual fan design
Thanks to its exquisite dual fan setup consisting of Noctuas highly optimised NF-F12 (120mm) and NF-B9 (92mm) premium fans, the NH-L12 pushes the bar in terms of low-profile quiet cooling performance.

Extra-low profile in 92mm single-fan mode
The NH-L12 can be used with the NF-B9 92mm fan only in order to reduce the overall height to 66mm. This way, the cooler is suitable for many typical ATX or Mini-ITX enclosures and ideal for whisper-quiet HTPC systems.

PWM support and Low-Noise Adaptors
The NH-L12s NF-F12 and NF-B9 fans support PWM for convenient automatic speed control. In addition, the maximum fan speed can be reduced to 1200/1300rpm using the supplied Low-Noise Adaptors for even quieter operation.

SecuFirm2 mounting system
Noctuas enthusiast grade SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting provides broad socket compatibility (LGA 2011, LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA1155, LGA775, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1) and meets the highest demands in safety, performance and ease-of-use.

Mini-ITX mounting without backplate
Some Intel based Mini-ITX mainboards dont allow for the installation of backplates. The NH-L12 thus comes with an extra set of Intel mounting bolts which make it possible to install the cooler without using the SecuFirm2 backplate.

NT-H1 thermal compound
Noctua's much-acclaimed NT-H1 is a well proven pro-grade TIM solution that provides minimum thermal resistance, excellent ease-of-use and outstanding reliability.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet and cool I recently built a new i74930K workstation and put an NH-L12 in. Really quiet and short enough to fit my 19" rack case. The new PC was so quiet I retro fitted another NH-L12 in my older workstation and used the included voltage adaptor cables to run the chassis fans. Now that PC is extremely quiet too. No more constant white noise in the studio! The noisiest thing is the room now is the fridge. On my Asus P9X79 Deluxe motherboard the NH-L12 prevents ram modules taller than 43mm being fitted in the slots nearest the CPU. Not a problem if you're using four modules but worth thinking about if you want to populate all eight slots. CPU idles at 42C, hits 70C under load with all 12 cores topping out. Now, if only Noctua made fridges . . . 19 February 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Couldn't use it with tall memory I bought this to go on an ITX system (Gigabyte A85) which needs to use fast ram, so i bought this to keep the APU at decent temps, unfortunately the upper heatsink is too wide for my tall RAM, so it's not being used. I could have done some DIY and shaved the size down, but at the price I paid I couldn't! It will get used for a future HTPC build (hopefully). It should be OK for a typical HTPC build with low profile RAM. 07 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I liked the whole design with the two fans. Contrary to some You Tube videos, where people suggest removing the bottom fan, there is no need to do this. Only the top fan needs to be removed; it has easy spring loaded clips and the screws to reach the base plate are easy to access through the fins. The fitting of the base plate was easy but I think mainly because I have a case that has a back door to access the rear of the motherboard. This just makes it easier to fit the X-plate. Mounting the Noctua NH-L12 can be made in different directions and there is plenty of clearance over the RAM so no problems at all. It's quiet and overall a good purchase. None so far. 15 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Managed to fit this in a Lian Li HTPC (Home Theater PC). Cracking piece of kit, fits my LGA2011 i7-3930K Overclocked chip on a standard ATX board without any problems. I did have to rotate orientation as heat pipes were to close to my ram. Keeps my processor at a stead 78degree, even under processor intensive loads like seti processing. 06 November 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to install, obvious height advatages, whisper quiet and great packaging and accessories. Price is a little high, but I still think it represents value for money. 18 October 2012
