Noctua NH-L12Sx77 CPU Cooler Review

It has been quite a while since we’ve taken a look at a CPU cooler from Noctua. Mainly because they do not release CPU coolers all that often as their lineup stand the test of time. While we mainly know Noctua for their massive CPU coolers like the NH-D15, today we are checking out a smaller cooler really designed for small form factor (SFF) systems. It’s the NH-L12Sx77, which is a new slightly taller variant of the original NH-L12S, offering improved cooling performance as well as enhanced motherboard and RAM compatibility. The big change here is that Noctua has added 2 more heatpipes and increased the size of the cooler to 77mm. Even at this size the cooler will still fit in SFF cases like the Fractal Design Terra, Silverstone Milo ML12 or Louqe Raw S1.

Special thanks to Noctua for providing us with the NH-L12Sx77 CPU Cooler to review.
