Quoted from Noctua NH-U12S Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Noctua NH-U12S reviews & previews
"For about $75 at press time, its bigger brother offers better cooling performance for only $5 over the this cooler's $70 tag at press time. Unless you have a very tight case that can only accommodate the NH-U12S, but not the NH-U14S, I highly recommend you to go with the latter. Does this mean the NH-U12S sucks? Absolutely not. It just means the NH-U12S is awesome, but Noctua themselves just has something awesomer."
"At the end of it all, what can I say? It’s Noctua. It’s everything you’ve heard. You can get similar performing CPU coolers for less, but you pay for it with much more noise. If you require premium cooling components for your computer and clearance is a concern, Noctua has a great option with the NH-U12S."
"Ultimately, the addition of a second (user-supplied) NF-F12 PWM fan has a small impact on thermal performance. Noctua have designed a great heatsink here, one that is better suited to compact computer systems where large 140mm fan equipped heatsinks just won't fit. Recommended."
"In its stock form, the NH-U12S falls behind the 140mm dual tower coolers like the Dark Rock Pro 2, Noctua NH-D14, and so on. However if you don’t have the room to accommodate such huge coolers, the choice is made somewhat easier. The NH-U12S may not be able to take a CPU past 200W of thermal dissipation with a single fan, but if you are in the 160W range, it will suit your needs perfectly well."
"Noctua constantly redefines quality with each new generation of coolers, and the NH-U12S/NH-U14S are a testament to this."
