Noctua NH-C12P CPU Heatsink Review



So to wrap it up I couldn’t find any flaw that was mentionable, basically with this cooler should last you at least 5 years as its got enough cooling capability  for the CPUs to come, and with a free mounting kit for the future you truly can’t go wrong with this cooler.

The looks the feel the packaging everything is top notch, as expected from Austrian quality, they certainly dint have too many kirsch snaps when designing this and came up with a seemingly perfect product. Hence forth I can only award this with the full 5 star ranking and a gold medal on top.

REPORT CARD : Noctua NH-C12P CPU Cooler
category rating comments
Quality 5 High quality fan, and the heatsink build is nearly perfect
Innovation 5 Six heatpipes!  You wonderful, crazy company!
Performance 5 In-line with some of the best air-coolers on the market.  Performs better than standard watercooling gear.
Installation 4 You have to remove your motherboard, but very flexible installation options, and free upgrades for Intel i7
Value 4 $69 is around the same price as competitively-priced air coolers.  Will certainly last several upgrades
FINAL VERDICT: 5 out of 5
