"Overall, the NH-U12P SE1366 is a great addition to the Noctua cooler lineup, one that will continue to evolve as new sockets come out."
"The biggest thing I can bring forward here is the fact that no matter what cooler you have the I7 is going to run warm. The key is finding the combination of heatsink and fans that meet your needs. As delivered from the manufacturers, both the Noctua NH-12P 1366 and TRUE 1366 are nice pieces in their own right. The performance of the Noctua NH-U12P in this test was what I would call excellent in the face of disaster. It delivered great temperatures by comparison and did so with virtually no noise. The NF-P12 fans run at a low 1300 R.P.M. and are practically inaudible. This initially caused me some concern with temperatures creeping into the 80+ Celsius range I was sure the computer had shut down multiple times due to overheating but was pleasantly surprised each time to see the fans chugging away doing their best to help dissipate the heat load generated by the Core I7 965, both at the default and overclocked frequencies. That says something about the design of the heatsink as well as the NF-P12 fans used. While at the stock settings, the idle temperatures were not really a factor between the two heatsinks but under load at stock settings, the NH-U12P yielded a load temperature difference of 9 degrees Celsuius lower than that delivered by the competitor. That's huge! At the overclocked settings I used though, there was no difference in temperatures with both coolers sitting at the 84 Celsius mark. The point of difference is in the noise department."
"Relatively speaking, the NH-U12P SE1366 may not be the top performing cooler on the market, but it is a great product, offering excellent performance in a near silent setup. If you're in the market for a new heatsink for your new Core i7 rig and don't want your case to sound like a wind tunnel from a high-output fan needed to keep your chip cool, take a good look at the NH-U12P SE1366, we think it should definitely be on your shortlist."
"This is a superb cpu cooler like the previous Noctua coolers we have looked at. What amazes me everytime is that the cooler runs so silent and is still able to perform this well. It ourperforms the competition even though this time we only had a stock cooler to compete with. The price is not to bad either especially since Noctua usually gives out extra brackets for free when some new sockets are released. I can not more than recommend this product due to high quality, super performance and almost silent operation."
"I tried to sit here and pick the NH-U12P SE1366 CPU cooler apart, but there isn’t anything I can find to even try to bring up. From the time I took it out of the box, on through the assembly and into testing, the NH-U12P SE has been a pleasure to test. The SecuFirm2 mounting is spot on and really easy to assemble and the images in the instructions will answer any question you may come up with. I did see a bit of a discrepancy of the testing from our previous results; again, though, these could be contributed to different TIM application, or maybe Chris got the fans that ran +10% and mine ran -10%, I don’t really know. They are, however, where I like my processor to be at an overclocked state and are almost inaudible while doing so."
