Today we have the chance to test Noctua's NH-C12P SE14, a CPU heatsink based on the successful NH-C12P, which has received many awards and recommendations from the international press. The new NH-C12P SE14 now comes with Noctua's new NF-P14 140mm fan for further improved quiet cooling performance as well as the new SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system. Topped off with Noctua's pro-grade NT-H1 thermal compound and adding support for both LGA1366 and LGA1156, the NH-C12P SE14 seems to be a great cooler that provides lots of airflow for near-socket mainboard components and excellent case compatibility at a height of only 114mm.

- Product features

6HP P6 heatpipe design
The NH-C12P heatsink is renowned for its high quality and thermal performance.
CT C-type design with Airflow-Gaps
Due to the down-facing design, two large Airflow-Gaps and the oversize 140mm fan, the NH-C12P SE14 provides cooling for near-socket motherboard components.

NF-P14 NF-P14 140mm premium fan
Further improving the original NH-C12P’s quiet cooling performance, the NF-P14 is a highly optimised 140mm fan with Vortex-Control Notches for quietness and aerodynamic efficiency.
COMP High compatibility
The down-facing c-type design allows for low height as well as excellent motherboard and case compatibility, making the NH-C12P SE14 suitable for many smaller or desktop style cases.
SECUFIRM SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system
Noctua’s enthusiast grade SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting provides broad socket compatibility (LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA775, AM2, AM2+ and AM3).
NT-H1 Noctua NT-H1 high-end thermal compound
Noctua's NT-H1 is a well proven pro-grade TIM solution that provides minimum thermal resistance, ease-of-use and reliability.
