We're a society that is constantly changing and these changes apply to all possible areas, many people assume not well and often complain when they do happen, but it's certainly much more difficult to want to change, while maintaining the parameters that make us who we are.
Since some time we did not know anything about them, Noctua returns to bring us a new sink, this is the NH-L12, low profile, with all Noctua good and some interesting news, if you want to know what they are, explain in this article. For now, the packaging has been reduced somewhat, is lower than usual, with list of features and specifications on the front and sides, either brief or extended, with more complete explanations.
The NH-L12 is a low profile heatsink, making it perfect for use in HTPC or boxes with limited height, the shape of this heatsink is similar to other low profile, either in other models of Noctua or a different manufacturer: copper base depart heatpipes
(also copper) which are bent 90 degrees and pass through the lamina vertical aluminum, have a total of four. Thus, we have a sink with a height of 93 millimeters, but because it has two fans, if we remove the top reached a height of 66 mm, ideal for environments really set.
As mentioned, we have two fans, a NF-F12 12-inch on top and a NF-B9 of 9 inches at the bottom Double booster fan that complements the work of an active cooling, although, as we have seen, if we want more quiet and more space can always remove 12 centimeters, something really easy when you consider that the fan is set to aluminum deck with some wires that are already made Do not complicate life too much.
One of the new features included in this NH-L12 is that both fans finally include 4 pin connector compatible with PWM, it was something we had always been missing in the models Noctua. Even if we are traditional and want to use the typical resistance, we attached the Noctua Low-Noise Adaptor (LNA), and even a Y-shaped cable to connect both connectors into one (as if our board has no more than 4 pin connection) by the way, which includes a mounting kit mini ITX boards, a nice touch.
