    Thoughts and opinions on: Noctua NH-U12F

    Hi there,

    I'm going to purchase the Noctua NH-U12F for my E6600. I have read numerous reviews on this cooler and its highly recommended. Just wondered what your thoughts and opinions were on it?

    Thanks
    Mishima

    Overclockers.co.uk have a decent range of CPU coolers. Iv got a bigtyphoon,Thats pretty good performance but again it was a pig to fit. Most ppl i know just stick with the arctic cooling freezer pro

    The Tuniq Tower is supposed to be amazing, but you need a case the size of..... well, a big case. I've got the Freezer 7 Pro though and it's great. Running my E6600 at 3.6GHz stable....

    I have the Noctua fitted and I'm very impressed with it. DR was right the installation was quite tricky at times but it was well worth it. Excellent cooler!

    Where did you order it from?

    Does it come with a fan?

    I got it from Scan. It comes with a Noctua NF-S12 fan, thermal paste, all the brackets and tools for the different sockets.
