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.
Thanks to its slim design with only 45mm fin depth, the NH-U12S will not overhang the RAM slots even with two fans installed. This gives the user full access to the memory modules on all current CPU sockets and ensures 100% compatibility with tall heatspreaders or optional memory fans.
Recommended by more than 150 hardware publications and thousands of enthusiasts worldwide, the Noctua’s premium-quality NF-F12 Focused Flow 120mm fan is renowned for combining superb static pressure, excellent heatsink performance and surprising quietness of operation.
Using the optional NA-HC1 and NA-HC2 heatsink covers as well as the NA-SAVP1 anti-vibration pads (available in black, blue, green, red, yellow, white), the NH-U12S chromax.black can be fully customised to fit popular build colour schemes such as black and red or black and white
