Noctua has introduced the NH-U12DX 1366 and NH-U9DX 1366 processor coolers for the new Intel Xeon 5500 series processors. These HSFs are available in retail stores for $64.90 (56.90EUR) and $54.90 (46.90EUR), respectively.
"Our industry clients who build quiet servers and workstations swear by
our DX series of Intel Xeon coolers for applications which require both
high processing power and low noise emission", says Mag. Roland Mossig,
Noctua CEO. "The new Nehalem EP processors certainly provide an
impressive boost in performance, but especially the faster models also
require high-quality heatsinks in order to be cooled quietly. That's
where our new DX 1366 coolers come in."
Based on Noctua's signature NH-U series and fitted with the
award-winning NF-P12 and NF-B9 fans, the new NH-U12DX 1366 and NH-U9DX
1366 form complete premium quality packages that include Noctua's
renowned NT-H1 thermal compound and guarantee outstanding quiet cooling
performance for Intel's LGA1366 Xeon 5500 CPUs. While the larger
NH-U12DX 1366 is ideal for quiet audio, video, CAD or rendering
workstations, the smaller NH-U9DX 1366 fits standard 4U chassis and thus
lends itself to special server applications.
Both models employ the new SecuFirm2™ mounting system for Xeon 5500,
which ensures maximum convenience and extremely short installation time,
making them ideal both for professional system integrators and less
tech-savvy workstation users seeking to quiet their systems.
