The NH-U12S is the latest 12cm model of Noctua’s classic U-series single tower CPU coolers, which have received more than 400 awards and recommendations from the international press. The S-version’s 45mm slim shape ensures 100% compatibility with tall RAM modules and at the same time, its fine-tuned design and the class-leading NF-F12 FocusedFlow fan with PWM support for fully automatic speed control allow it to further improve its predecessor’s renowned quiet cooling performance. Topped off with the trusted, pro-grade SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system and Noctua’s proven NT-H1 thermal compound, the NH-U12S is a complete premium quality solution that combines outstanding performance, quiet operation and excellent compatibility.
Classic 120mm tower size for excellent overall compatibility
Standing 158mm tall, the NH-U12S is short enough to fit most modern mid- or high-end tower cases. Measuring 125mm wide (including fan and fan clips), the cooler stays clear of the top PCIe slot on standard ATX or Micro-ATX motherboards, ensuring best compatibility with SLI and CrossFire setups.
100% RAM compatibility
Thanks to its slim design with only 45mm fin depth, the NH-U12S will not overhang the RAM slots even with two fans installed. This gives the user full access to the memory modules on all current CPU sockets and ensures 100% compatibility with tall heatspreaders or optional memory fans.
SecuFirm2 mounting system
Noctua's SecuFirm2 mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety and ease of use. Supporting Intel LGA1200, LGA115x (LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156), LGA2011, LGA2066 and AMD (AM4, AM3+, AM2+, FM1, FM2, FM2+), the SecuFirm2 mounting included with the NH-U12S ensures perfect contact pressure and maximum convenience on all current sockets.
NF-F12 120mm Focused Flow fan
Recommended by more than 150 hardware publications and thousands of enthusiasts world-wide, the Noctua's premium quality NF-F12 Focused Flow 120mm fan is renowned to combine superb static pressure, excellent heatsink performance and surprising quietness of operation.

This Noctua CPU cooler is the only one you will ever need, the one I've used now on my last three builds, and the only air cooler I'll use in the future. If you know Noctua fans you know they are nothing short of amazing and engineered like nothing else. This CPU cooler is so well made, so easy to install, and works so well, every other company should just get out of the air CPU cooling market!!!
The bracket and install is almost as easy as a stock Intel CPU fan, but it works so much better and is so much quieter. I've used this cooler in two different sizes (NH-U12S) & (NH-U14S) and cannot recommend it highly enough.
If you like air cooling, like me, and simple installs, look no further for the best and easiest to install air cooler on planet Earth.
This is an impressive cooler. At 100% CPU (Intel Xeon E3-1270, quad core) load for days, the system maintains a steady 50C temperature. There is even an option to mount a second fan (model NF-F12) on the back for a push-pull configuration. My build uses an ATX case from Corsair (500R) and the cooler is perfectly level with case exhaust fan. The top of the radiator leaves just enough clearance within the case, no issues with memory or anything else. I wonder how my system stayed cool with such a skimpy stock cooler.
I highly recommend this cooler for anyone needing a quiet, high quality air cooler for their system. As an added bonus, everything you need for the install is included: thermal compound, phillips driver, adapters, extra fan mounts, and even printed install instructions. This is really great product.
Installation was fairly simple but I'm someone who reads the instructions and takes his time. In my case, I had to remove my motherboard from the case because the backplane was being held on by the old stock cooler. That wasn't difficult and was the hardest part.
But before I go, one last message. If you haven't applied cooling paste before (and it is included), watch some videos on how to correctly apply paste. While I was fine, I've heard horror stories from people who applied too much paste (and used a different kind that was conductive). It did not go well for their motherboard after that. So, watch the videos or get help from someone who knows how to apply paste.
And this time the pun is intended -- I'm now a Noctua fan. (Perhaps we should form a club...The Noctua Fans Club...)
So as stated by my old review, mounting brackets does not align properly with MSI MPG X570 Gaming PRO Carbon WiFi motherboard out of the box (as seen in the image). You will need to go to Noctua's site and request a "NM-AM4 kit" in order for you to mount the CPU cooler on this motherboard (or any AM4 most likely). You will need the AM4 Motherboard invoice and the invoice of the CPU cooler in order for them to send you the mounting kit free of charge (it will take maybe 2 weeks with both processing and shipping).
Tip: If you plan on ordering this cooler and want to use this on a AM4 motherboard. Order the motherboard, cooler and once done, go to the Noctua's site and request the AM4 kit. If not, you're trying to build everything once everything comes in might, you will most likely won't be able to build your PC for about 2 weeks (unless you want to pay expedited shipping for the kit).
Noctua's Support replied back to me and they said my CPU cooler box didn't include the NM-AM4 kit was because it's only for the 2019 products/boxes, the third-party seller didn't inform me whether the product it was the 2018 or 2019 product. So without telling me (and probably many others) and instead of sending me the newest 2019 product, the third-party seller falsely sold me the 2018 NH-U12S product that somehow they had still had at their warehouse.
Tip: Don't order from third-party sellers, order from Amazon directly to avoid this issue.
As seen by attachments this cooler was advertised to fit AM4 motherboards/sockets and it doesn't align properly. The "AMD Set" that comes with the mounting bars are missing the other screw thread by almost a half of an inch.
