Noctua NH-U12S SE-AM4 CPU Cooler Review

Noctua makes some of the best air CPU coolers out there. When it comes to Ryzen they were one of the only manufacturers to have a full line of AM4 coolers ready. We've already taken a look at the big boy NH-D15 SE-AM4, with its amazing cooling performance. While the NH-D15 SE-AM4 is one of the best coolers for Ryzen it can be overkill for many people, and its shear size might not make it for everyone. Well Noctua has a smaller cooler made for Ryzen in their NH-U12S SE-AM4, which of course is their very popular NH-U12S with an AM4 mounting bracket. This single tower cooler features 5 large heatpipes and a 120 mm cooling fan. On top of that it has 100% RAM compatibility, so you shouldn't run into any clearance issues.

AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Processor Review

Back when AMD launched their Ryzen 5 processors earlier this year it was the first time we saw a 6-core desktop processor in the mid-range mainstream line. At this time Intel was still on quad-core parts on their Core i7 and Core i5 SKUs. Of course just recently Intel launched their 8th Generation Core desktop processors, which do included both Core i5 and Core i7 6-core SKUs. So it seems the playing field has leveled a bit, with Intel basically being forced to add more cores to their desktop processors to catch up with AMD. So now as buying season is upon us we can give you a clear picture oh how all of the current processors stack up against each other as we just got a Ryzen 5 1600 in to review. This 6-core, 12-thread processor has a base clock of 3.2 GHz and boosts up to 3.6 GHz, it is fully unlocked as well. Let's get this chip on our test bench and see what it can do!
