The NH-U12A is the latest, 5th generation of Noctua’s award-winning NH-U12
series of 120mm size premium-quality quiet CPU coolers. Conceived to push the
envelope of the 120mm form factor, it combines two of Noctua’s flagship model
NF-A12×25 PWM 120mm fans with a completely redesigned heatsink featuring
7 heatpipes and an increased fin surface area for superior heat dissipation.
This way, the NH-U12A can rival the performance of many 140mm size coolers while
offering 120mm class case and PCIe compatibility. Topped off with the trusted,
pro-grade SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system, Noctua’s proven NT-H1
thermal compound and a full 6-year manufacturer’s warranty, the NH-U12A is
a deluxe choice that combines top-tier performance with excellent compatibility
and outstanding quietness of operation.
Award-winning NH-U12 series
First introduced in 2005, Noctua’s NH-U12 series has won more than
600 awards and recommendations from leading international hardware websites and
magazines. The NH-U12A is the latest addition to this prestigious series that
has established itself as a benchmark for premium-quality quiet 120mm
140mm performance in 120mm size
Thanks to its completely revised, thoroughly optimised 7 heatpipe layout, 37%
more fin surface area (as compared to the NH-U12S) and a dual fan push/pull
configuration that uses the new, state-of-the-art NF-A12×25 fans, the NH-U12A
pushes the performance envelope in the 120mm class and can actually match or
even outperform many 140mm sized coolers.
100% RAM compatibility on LGA115× and AM4
Due to its asymmetric design, the NH-U12A does not overhang the RAM slots on
Intel LGA115× and AMD AM4 based motherboards, which ensures easy access to the
modules and 100% compatibility with tall heat-spreaders. On LGA2066, the rear
fan will overhang the RAM slots on the left-hand side of the socket, so RAM
modules should not exceed 42mm in height.
Classic 120mm tower size for excellent case and PCIe compatibility
Standing 158mm tall, the NH-U12A is short enough to fit most modern mid- or
high-end tower cases. Measuring 125mm wide (including fan and fan clips), the
cooler stays clear of the top PCIe slot on most standard ATX or Micro-ATX
motherboards, ensuring optimum compatibility with multi-GPU setups.
Dual NF-A12 120mm fans
The NF-A12×25 is a highly optimised next-generation 120mm fan that integrates
Noctua’s latest innovations in aerodynamic engineering in order to achieve an
unprecedented level of quiet cooling performance. Using this elite-class fan in
a push/pull dual fan configuration is one of the cornerstones of the
NH-U12A’s commanding performance and acoustic efficiency.
PWM support and Low-Noise Adaptors
The NF-A12 120mm fans supplied with the NH-U12A support PWM for convenient
automatic speed control through the motherboard: Full performance under load,
virtually silent at idle! In addition, maximum fan speed can be reduced from
2000 to 1700rpm using the supplied Low-Noise Adaptors for even quieter
SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system
Noctua’s SecuFirm2™ mounting systems have become synonymous with quality,
safety and easy installation. Supporting Intel LGA115× (LGA1150, LGA1151,
LGA1155, LGA1156) and LGA20×x (LGA2066, LGA2011–0, LGA2011–3), as well as
AMD AM4, AM3(+), AM2(+), FM2(+) and FM1, the SecuFirm2™ mounting included with
the NH-U12A is straightforward to install, provides perfect contact pressure and
will stand the test of time even under heavy use.
Compatibility with past and future sockets
Thanks to Noctua’s SecuFirm™ ecosystem, the NH-U12A can be made compatible
with the older LGA1366 and LGA775 sockets using the optional NM-I3 mounting kit,
which is provided free of charge. If technically possible, Noctua will also
provide upgrade kits for future sockets, which makes the NH-U12A a safe
NT-H1 thermal compound
Noctua’s much-acclaimed NT-H1 is a pro-grade TIM solution that provides
minimum thermal resistance, excellent ease of use and outstanding reliability.
Chosen again and again by overclockers and enthusiast users worldwide, it has
established itself as a benchmark for premium-quality thermal compounds.
Soldered interface between heatpipes and fins
With many heatsinks, the fins are press-fitted to the heatpipes. Due to the
different thermal expansion coefficients of copper and aluminium, this fit can
loosen over years of thermal cycling, which may lead to reduced performance. By
contrast, the NH-U12A’s fins are soldered to the heatpipes in order to
guarantee a superior thermal interface that doesn’t deteriorate even after
many years of usage.
6-year manufacturer’s warranty
Noctua products are renowned for their impeccable quality and outstanding
longevity. True to this legacy, the NH-U12A heatsink is built to last, and like
all Noctua fans, the supplied NF-A12×25 units feature an MTTF rating of more
than 150,000 hours. The entire package comes with a full 6-year
In cases with more than 158mm CPU cooler clearance, the rear fan can be
moved upwards to make room for memory modules taller than 42mm.
