Noctua today presented two new additions to its
DX series of quiet Intel Xeon CPU coolers: Now compatible with Intel's latest LGA1366 based Xeon 5500 (Nehalem EP) processors, the new NH-U12DX 1366 and NH-U9DX 1366 are drop-in replacements for standard Intel coolers.
Based on Noctua's signature NH-U series and fitted with the
NF-P12 and NF-B9 fans, the new NH-U12DX 1366 and NH-U9DX
1366 include Noctua's NT-H1 thermal compound and promise to offer outstanding quiet cooling
performance for Intel's LGA1366 Xeon 5500 CPUs. While the larger NH-U12DX 1366 is ideal for quiet audio, video, CAD or rendering workstations, the smaller NH-U9DX 1366 fits standard 4U chassis and thus lends itself to special server applications.
Both models employ the new SecuFirm2 mounting system for Xeon 5500, which ensures short installation time,.
Both models are available immediately at recommended retail prices of EUR 56.90 / USD 64.90 (NH-U12DX 1366) and EUR 46.90 / USD 54.90 (NH-U9XDX 1366).
