Noctua NH-L12 Low Profile CPU Cooler Review
Nocuta were founded in 2005 and back in 2006 we received our first samples from them, the NH-U9 and NH-U12. Somewhat surprisingly for a company which could be considered as a startup at that point those initial products were excellent offering low noise and high performance, two features that everyone looks for in coolers.
Over time Noctua further enhanced their product catalogue, tweaking the design of their coolers and finding a style which was both unique and attractive, something well demonstrated by the excellent NH-C14
which we reviewed back in June last year.
Recently Noctua expanded their product line further with the introduction of the NH-L12 which is designed for use in HTPC environments where space is at a premium. Today we have the NH-L12 on our test bench to find out if this dual fan, low profile cooler lives up to Noctuas high standard.
