Noctua's Pocket Sized Powerhouse Cooler *NH-L12* On OCIA

"The Noctua NH-L12 is an extremely compact, yet highly efficient cooler. Like all Noctua products we've reviewed here at, the NH-L12 has high quality construction, a complete set of mounting hardware for any socket Intel or AMD, several different cables and adapters and instructions and installation tool. They've even thrown in a nice-sized tube of thermal paste and an attractive case badge.

The NH-L12 functions just as well as it looks. Although Noctua doesn't exactly promote this cooler for overclocking, it had no problem running our Phenom X2 at a high speed and voltage, when even the high-end AMD factory cooler couldn't handle the load. With dual PWM controlled fans and the low-noise adapters the NH-L12 runs practically silent, and even at full speed there's not much to hear outside the case."
