NH-D12L chromax.black: Noctua’s new black ventirad!


This heatsink was indeed part of Noctua’s latest roadmap, and here it is, officially unveiled by the Austrian manufacturer. Let’s welcome the new NH-D12L chromax.black, a black version of the original NH-D12L.

Noctua NH-D12L chromax.black: a black version of the compact double-tower heatsink!

Noctua NH-D12L chromax.blackThe new NH-D12L chromax.black is a double-tower heatsink with compact dimensions. It measures 125 (W) x 113 (D) x 145 (H) mm. Weight is also limited to 890g with the NF-A12x25r chromax.black supplied.

As we said, it benefits from a double-turn design. The two stacks of aluminum fins are crossed by a total of five 6mm copper heat pipes. They meet at a nickel-plated copper base. To maximize RAM compatibility, the first fin stack is thinner than the second.

Ventilation is provided by a single NF-A12x25r PWM chromax.black. To keep dimensions to a minimum, the latter is available with a round rather than a square frame. It will operate at up to 2000 rpm at full speed, generating an airflow of 60.09 CFM, while static pressure totals 2.34 mmH2O.

For the price, hang on, as Noctua is asking no less than €109.90.
