Final Thoughts


It is pretty easy to see from our test results why I use a pair of Noctua heatsinks on my own computer. I have always been impressed by their build quality and the performance is second to none with all of their heatsinks that I have tested over the last ten years. Noctua's flagship NH-U12P is a solid performer in cooling performance and does it with low noise. The fact that it does it with the lowest acoustics that we have measured make it by far the best heatsink we have tested since moving to the TECC testing method.


High-end performance does come at a high-end price. As previously stated the NH-U12P will set you back around $65 Dollars and finding one can also be difficult. The good thing is that as more people become aware of Noctua their products will be carried in more locations. In 2005 Noctua didn't have a US distributer and obtaining their products meant paying for international shipping. Now we are starting to see these parts in e-tail and it can't be long before a major retail outfit picks up the brand.
