Reviews

from completed build College Transport Box

Excellent! Will never use another brand CPU cooler for a high end air solution! Small but powerful!

from completed build Skylake Node 605 HTPC

Excellent. Configurable, with top mount 120mm fan removable for use in small cases (Y-Split Cable and Low-Noise Adapters included). I had room enough in Node 605 to use both fans.

from completed build First Ever Build: The Manta Ray

Wish I could give it 10 stars.

Was getting 65°C with Intel stock cooler while playing FIFA 16, and changed the CPU cooler to Noctua NH-L12 and now I am getting 23°C while playing the same game. Don't think I need to add anything more.

VERY pleased with this cooler. I had it on my 6600k OC'd at 4.4GHz with a Noctua NF-F12 iPPC 3000 RPM fan and it kept it nice and cool. However, it can only handle my 6700k at factory clock speeds.
