CPU Coolers include fans with automatic speed control.
Press Release Summary:
May 24, 2013 - Model NH-U12DX i4 CPU coolers feature NF-F12 120 mm fan and 45 mm fin depth, allowing access to RAM slots. Integrating two NF-B9 92 mm fans, NH-U9DX i4 units measure 125 mm high, supporting use with standard 4U server cases. Products support LGA1356, LGA1366, and square and narrow ILM LGA2011-based Xeon platforms. They are fitted with SecuFirm2™ mounting system and include industrial-grade NT-H1 thermal compound and low-noise adaptors to minimize fan speed and noise.
Original Press Release
Noctua Presents NH-U12DX i4 and NH-U9DX i4 CPU Coolers for Intel Xeon
Press release date: May 15, 2013
"Builders of quiet workstations and servers still have trouble finding quality cooling solutions for Intel's LGA2011 socket with Narrow ILM mounting", explains Mag. Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO), "so we've decided to update our DX line of coolers to work with both Square ILM and Narrow ILM based LGA2011 platforms. At the same time, we've added PWM control and switched the U12 version to the new, slimmer layout of the NH-U12S, which not only provides better performance but also ensures easier access to the RAM slots, which was another long time request from our industry partners."
Supporting Intel's LGA2011 (both Square and Narrow ILM), LGA1356 and
LGA1366 Xeon platforms, the SecuFirm2™ mounting included with the NH-U12DX i4 and NH-U9DX i4 has been custom designed for system integrators who require both perfect contact pressure and quick, convenient installation.
Both the NF-F12 120mm fan of the NH-U12DX i4 and the two NF-B9 92mm fans of the NH-U9DX i4 now support PWM for fully automatic speed control. In addition, the maximum fan speed can be reduced using the supplied Low-Noise Adaptors for even quieter operation.
Thanks to its slim design with only 45mm fin depth, the NH-U12DX i4 ensures easy access to the RAM slots. When installed parallel to the slots, it will not overhang the memory on LGA1356, LGA1366 and LGA2011 Square ILM even with two fans installed, thus providing full compatibility with tall RAM heatsinks.
While the superior cooling performance of the NH-U12DX i4 makes it ideal for quiet workstation builds, the 125mm height of the NH-U9DX i4 makes it fully compatible with standard 4U server cases.
Pricing and availability
The NH-U9DX i4 and NH-U12DX i4 will be available shortly at suggested retail prices of EUR 59.90 / USD 64.90 (NH-U9DX i4) and EUR 69.90 / USD 74.90 (NH-U12DX i4).
