Test Results


TweakTown uses a different method for testing CPU heatsinks which allows for an even playing field across all product tests. We feel that by using the same ambient temperature and strict lab-like testing procedures we are able to accurately compare one product to another. More information on our testing procedure can be found in the T.E.C.C. article here.



The tests are completed and we have a new performance leader. As stated previously, we tested in both single and dual fan configurations. The Noctua NH-U12P performed better than any of our previously tested products in two setups. Anyone can stick a massive high volume fan on a heatsink and get great performance though, so let's see how it did in our acoustic tests.



The NF-P12 fans work as advertised, and again we have a new leader in this test. Noctua uses SSO bearings with these fans that rotate at 1300 RPM with 12 volts. The result is a very quiet fan that can push up to 92.3 cubic meters per hour.
