The Packaging

The NH-U12P is supplied in a stylish box with the essential information about the product clearly visible.

Two smaller boxes are contained within the main package, one holding the actual cooler and fan, the other containing the accessories bundled with the NH-U12P.

The Noctua package is very impressive and thorough, there is the mounting equipment for both Socket 775 and Am2 as well as the Ultra-Low-Noise adaptor (U.L.N.A.), which allows for a further reduction in noise emission. Additionally there is Noctua NT-H1 high-end thermal compound, a well laid out manual and even a screwdriver!
