The NH-L12S is a low-profile quiet cooler designed for use in Small Form Factor cases and HTPC environments. Considering the NH-L12S is targeted at SFF builds, an ITX board will be the choice for most builders.

However with the NH-L12S the air is blown upwards away from the motherboard and this is reflected in higher system temperatures with the NH-L12 recording 46C, the SBS2 recording 42C and the NH-L12S recording 49C for the same test. Of course, by being part of Noctua’s portfolio, the product follows designated high standards and for that reason all of the heat sink parts are soldiered together and nicely nickel coated to improve the overall durability and the appearance of the product.Newegg bestowed Neo Forza the 2022 “Fastest Growing Partner” award at the Gala held in January 2023. With its top 120mm fan removed, it also proved to be an ideal choice for low-noise setups in the Ghost S1 chassis.

SSO stands for “Self Stabilizing Oil-pressure”, which the SSO combines a hydrodynamic oil bath bearing with an additional magnet dedicated to the self-stabilization of the rotor axis.While the fans can be moved upwards to increase RAM clearance, this will increase the total height of the cooler and thus requires additional clearance inside the chassis. Thanks to Noctua’s SecuFirm™ ecosystem, the NH-L12 can be made compatible with the older LGA1366 and LGA775 sockets using the optional NM-I3 mounting kit, which is provided free of charge. Enough about the additional accessories, so let’s leave them aside until they are required and pay some attention to the cooler’s structure.

Chosen again and again by overclockers and enthusiast users worldwide, it has established itself as a benchmark for premium-quality thermal compounds. And by mentioning the fins stack let’s proceed the article with checking the heat dissipation part of the cooler, which is actually the aluminum fins stack. Scan Computers International Limited are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (Register no. The NH-L12S stands at just 70 mm tall with the fan underneath or will measure up to 85 mm if you place it on top.This exact frame in the benchmark has some CPU spikes but overall the temps shouldn’t go higher than +/- 5-7 degrees from what you see here.
