The last time this manufacturer delivered a CPU cooler to me, it left me remembering two things. First and foremost was the very limited noise that emanates from these coolers, even at maximum RPM. The second thing that comes to mind is the weight and feel of these coolers. It has an industrial well built feel about it. If you haven't guessed by these two factors, I'm referring to my last test of the Noctua CPU coolers. Noctua's main goals are to efficiently remove heat from a processor and doing this with the lowest noise level possible. The last review left me feeling overwhelmingly, that Noctua had done just that.
The last review I did for Noctua was of the NH-U9B which is sort of the little brother to the NH-U12P that Chris reviewed for us earlier on. This time Noctua sends the newest variation, the NH-U12P SE1366 CPU cooler. The SE or "Special Edition" refers to this model being Core i7 specific. The NH-U12P tested very well amongst our other coolers, so I expect no less from Noctua with this SE version.
The whole idea here is that Noctua has taken an already proven cooler and "spiced it up" a bit to handle the demand of the new Core i7 processors. Noctua has designed and engineered their new mounting system and named it the SecuFirm2. This is a Corei7 specific mount which means that this cooler is only applicable to said processors and motherboards. Time again to get some images and strap the NH-U12P SE1366 CPU cooler to the T.E.C.C. and see if Noctua, has once again, provided end-users with another way to silently handle our processors.
