Noctua’s NH-U12 is one of the best performing single-tower CPU coolers in the market, since its first release in 2005. Now, there is an updated version coming out, called NH-U12A, which will be the 5th generation of the series.

Compared to the existing NH-U12S cooler, the new NH-U12A has a total of 7 heatpipes and 37% more fin surface area. According to Noctua, the added cooling capacity and the inclusion of dual NF-A12x25 fans in push/pull configuration enable the NH-U12A to match or even exceed a 140 mm-class CPU cooler.

Although the overall size of the new cooler increases, the RAM and PCIe slots compatibility for mainstream motherboards should be excellent, thanks to the asymmetric heatsink design. The height remains the same as the NH-U12S at 158 mm, which should be able to fit in most PC cases.

The NH-U12A is priced at $99.90 USD (MSRP). It can be purchased worldwide online now, and later in your local resellers. Stay tuned for our upcoming review of the cooler.
