Noctua keeps rolling along with their high end coolers designed to tame the heat of today's modern processors. In this review we will be taking a look at two of their new heatpipe tower coolers, the NH-U12S and the NH-U14S. As you might be able to figure out these coolers feature a 12cm and 14cm fan, respectively, and are the latest in their award winning U-series of coolers. The coolers themselves implement U-shaped heatpipes within a compact array of fins intended to provide broad compatibility with a variety of systems, especially when it comes to avoiding interference with system memory.
