    Cool review as always!

    Is there an ETA on the Noctua NH-U12A review?

    "In idle you cannot hear the fans. Once we put the processor at 100% load with several full wPrime runs. Noise pressure is still not an issue. The cooler is silent when it comes to noise levels. Despite the low noise levels, we can hear the pump a tiny bit though."

    I'm a little shocked.

    I dont think it was designed for top performance, but rather for the appeal of its form factor (SLIM). For an air-cooler, look at all the free space around it compared to say, the DH-15. No nicking of your hands as you work around your case and RAM modules easily accessible.

    That review is ready and pending a 2nd editor check. Likely next week.

    I mean it's half the size of the DRP4 but only about a 3 degree difference...Not sure if that's good or bad for the DRP4 or this.

    It would be cool to also test it with the second 120mm fan mounted and see how it compares
