Noctua NH-D12L Low-height 120mm Dual Tower CPU Cooler Launched


Noctua has launched a new 12cm dual tower CPU cooler – the NH-D12L. This new model supports Intel Core processors from the tenth to thirteenth generations. It has a 145mm height (13mm lower than Noctua’s regular 120mm models) and is compatible with tall RAM modules. Another benefit is the NH-D12L Focused Flow(tm) fan, which features automatic speed control.

The Noctua NH-D12L CPU cooler is a low-height 120mm dual-tower CPU cooler, suitable for small form factor cases and HTPCs. It features a dual PWM fan configuration for maximum performance. It can also be configured as extra-low-profile by removing the top fan. It comes with award-winning NT-H1 thermal compound and a SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system.
