Noctua teamed up with Louqe to develop a special edition of the low-profile NH-L12 cooler for the Louqe Ghost S1 case. The NH-L12 was replaced by the NH-L12S but the latter is a bit too tall for the Ghost S1 case. Therefore Noctua reintroduces the original NH-L12 as a special Ghost S1 edition.
The Noctua NH-L12 Ghost S1 edition will be sold via Noctua's Amazon and eBay storefronts for $54.90.
Louqe and Noctua today presented the new NH-L12 Ghost S1 edition CPU cooler. Coming with a single 92mm fan and Noctua’s second-generation NT-H2 thermal compound, as well as the latest SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system, the NH-L12 Ghost S1 edition has been customised to be an ideal companion for quiet high-end builds in Louqe’s award-winning Ghost S1 enclosure.
“We’ve tested pretty much every low-profile cooler on the market in the Ghost S1 and even tried to create a complete custom solution in collaboration with Noctua, but nothing worked as well as our long-term favourite, the NH-L12,” explains Patrik Michalski (Louqe CEO). “That’s why we’ve ended up creating a customised special edition of this cooler that will be the ideal choice for all Ghost S1 users who are looking for the best possible air cooling solution.”
Having received more than 200 awards and recommendations from international hardware websites and magazines, the original NH-L12 was one of the most successful low-profile CPU coolers ever built. It also proved to be an ideal choice for low-noise setups in the Ghost S1 chassis when its top 120mm fan was removed.
“Ever since the original NH-L12 was superseded by the NH-L12S, we’ve seen Ghost S1 users go miles and beyond to get hold of remaining stock or used NH-L12 coolers because the newer S-version is just a bit too tall for this case,” explains Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). “The Ghost S1 is one of the most popular choices for premium-grade ITX builds at the moment, so we’re glad to bring back the original L12 in a version that is specifically customised for this great case.”
With its single NF-B9 PWM 92mm fan, the new Ghost S1 edition is tailored for use in this case and has been updated with the latest SecuFirm2™ mounting hardware for all current mainstream sockets, including Intel LGA1200, LGA115x and AMD AM4. Topped off with Noctua’s further improved, second-generation NT-H2 thermal compound and a full 6-year manufacturer’s warranty, the NH-L12 Ghost S1 edition is the ideal choice for premium-grade quiet builds in the Louqe Ghost S1 chassis.
