Quoted from Noctua NH-L12 Reviews:Check out these quotes from Noctua NH-L12 reviews & previews
"The Noctua NH-L12 is a great compact heatsink that delivers high performance with noise optimizations in mind."
"The Noctua NH-L12 heatpipe CPU cooler is an excellent choice for an HTPC or desktop system where space is at a premium. With the 120mm fan installed on top of the cooler it stands just 93mm (@3.7") tall, and if you can manage to run with just the lower 92mm fan installed you can get the overall height down to 66mm (@2.6"). This will fit a large number of cases, including some of the slimmer low profile units available. And considering its strong cooling performance, you may just want to use it in a full size system - even if you have room for a much larger tower style cooler."
"The Nocuta NH-L12 is a very well designed CPU cooler that works quite well in doing what ti's supposed to do, and that's keep your CPU cool. The NH-L12 is designed to fit into smaller style cases and I think it should do that just fine especially since it comes with two fans and you can remove the top one to have the cooler be lower in height. This adjust-ability allows the cooler to be able to fit in most any sized case or system, be it SFF or HTPC."
"Awarding the Noctua NH-L12 is a tough one. It could have our innovation award for being such a unique product in the HTPC/SFF market. It could snatch the Bang For Buck award for being one of the best performing and best value HTPC cooling solutions on the market we have ever seen. Yet the Noctua NH-L12 ticks so many boxes that we feel it is more than deserving of our highest award, the Editor’s Choice award."
"The Noctua NH-L12 is an interesting heatsink that comes with 120mm and 92mm fans; it's short 93mm height makes it ideal for many computer cases where tall tower heatsinks can't go. If there's really not a lot of space above the CPU socket, users can remove the top 120mm fan and decrease the height of the NH-L12 heatsink to only 66mm. There is a pretty significant temperature penalty to doing this, particularly with 150W TDP environments, but if you're dealing with a sub-95W TDP CPUs and the Noctua NH-L12 will prove quite capable."
