Experience: 90 Days


excellent performance
works very well.great design cools motherboard as well.very good quiet fan included

Experience: 1 Years


Fan design - No noise, many CFM, Cools Motherboard, ball bearings last forever, keeps on turning.
HS Design - Large spacing between platters, limits collection of dust, Thick platters don't bend easy by accident and allow for better heat transfer. Easy to remove for servicing (just two screws). Sturdy back plate adapter which keeps motherboard straight and true.
Plenty of heat transfer compound, can install several times and the compound remains pliable after a long time.
Large, cannot access components unless it is removed, but easily removed. Difficult for first time install as it uses a large back plate to reinforce the weight of the heat sink which requires complete disassembly of motherboard. (really not a con)
This is the best HSF across all manufacturers. I was hitting 95C when overclocking, and this lowered my temps to 45C when overclocking under full load (50C difference). Cooled my RAM as well and generally moves air in my case cooling everything due to it's MASSIVE fan diameter. Takes forever to get this heat sink dusty, and when it does get dusty, it is easy to clean as the fan clips off in no effort at all. Very accessible. Running 24/7 for over a year with no issues to date. (far better than any other after market HSF I used in the past)

Why would anyone buy anything else, Awesome value!

Experience: 1 Months


Easy installation.
Extremely quiet.
Additional cooling to motherboard.
None that should be unexpected - see below.
I like that it provides some additional airflow down on the motherboard and I've oriented the fan to help move air over my RAM. It isn't much but it helps by a few degrees and every little bit counts. RAM in the first slot of my motherboard(Asus Z77 Sabertooth) is inaccessible with this heatsink installed. I knew this would be the case but it is an inconvenience that should be noted. Won't be an issue once everything is installed unless you end up monkeying with the RAM frequently.

The heatsink is not as tall as several other heatsinks I've used in recent years and I'd expect that it could fit in to almost all cases due to the lower height clearance. The actual size of the heatsink, looming over the motherboard, is quite large though and could make for a very cramped case in something smaller like a MATX case.

It is definiely better than a stock heatsink and fan for cooling ability though it is not the best heatsink for cooling I've encountered. If extreme cooling is necessary then I'd recommend shopping around and possibly considering one of the liquid cooling kits available.

The Noctua NH-C12P SE14 is probably the quietest heatsink I've installed to date. This scores huge marks with me and I give this a five-star review based off of the combination of good cooling and the complete lack of any audible signature. With a modest overcock, this heatsink and fan are inaudible when more than a couple of feet away from the case.

I would definitely buy this product again and recommend it to anyone looking for a moderately priced heatsink with good cooling capability and virtually silent operation!

Experience: 11 Months


Extremely Quiet
Very good cooling
Compatible with most processors
Not good for small cases
No PWM so have to set speed manually
This fan is so quiet I cannot even tell it is running when I turn on my computer. And it cools the CPU better than the stock coolers do.

It is large, so people with small cases might have trouble getting it to fit. You have to set the speed of the fan manually but this isn't a real issue as it is so quiet you don't need to lower the speed for noise reasons.

Experience: 2 Years


Looks awesome
Keeps things cold
Great heatsink. Have been using it for more than two years. At first I wasn't getting the results I was hoping for, but then I found out my MB upped the voltage on my phenom ii 965 BE and my case had garbage airflow. Replaced the case and lowered the voltage to 1.375. Temps are low.

Experience: 30 Days


Beastly cooler. Cools well and remains extremely quiet.
Can be a bit too big in some cases.
Fits just fine in my mATX build, surprisingly. Cools my 2500k quietly at 25-30c idle, 50-55c max load. Noctua has never failed to impress me.

Experience: 8 Months


Low Profile. Runs only 1 fan.
doesn't clear 2x ram sticks with most heatspreaders, average cooling ability.
With an x6 1090T, max vcore p 1.35. 1.375v+ will hit cpu's tjmax, therefore forcing it to throtlle.

Max OC 3.76ghz, 16x multi, 230 fsb

Expected more. Pay the extra 20 to get the higher model imo.

Experience: 2 Days


Small compared to the tower type.
If positioned correclty will also cools ram.
5 deg cooler performance then stock in my system at idle and under load.
Only one quiet 140mm fan, reduces vibration and noise.
Heatpipes pertrude on one side making that side warm to anything underneath it. The fan isn't positioned over the pipes on one side.
Might make it hard to replace or add ram since the one side is positioned over it depending on your motherboard.
I put it on my PhenomII x6 which was running at 43 idle, 50 under load. Once I replaced the original HS and put the Noctua SE14 my temps went to 38 idle, 45 under load. 5 deg difference was nice but the big difference was that I wasn't hearing the stock fan winding anymore! The new fan is quiet even under load, you also have options to put an in line resistor to slow down the Noctua fan to make it even quieter but it's quiet as is.

Well packaged, all the hardware requiered is in the box, easy install.

Experience: 21 Days


- Does its job
- Ugly
- Hard to assemble
This cooler is very very good for its purpose, but installing it is very tricky (thermal paste and the mounting of the heatsink is very difficult with those odd metal hooks).

The color of the entire thing doesn't fit in at all with the rest of the computer. Of course it's unlikely anyone will be looking inside it very much but, didn't look nice with blue/white/red/black!

Experience: 7 Days


Good job cooling CPU.
Instructions a bit confusing.
Installation can be tricky. Make sure to install the base before mounting the motherboard. I had unmount and reinstall the mainboard without reading the complete instruction for the cooler. Wished they had it in BOLD in and as the first line of instruction.

Comment: The C12P SE14 will not allow you to achieve the ultimate overclock but it will allow you to keep your rig quiet while providing better than good cooling.

Comment: A good heatsink that's going to fit in more cases despite it's size. It's quiet and very easy to mount. Just don't be surprised if it doesn't do any monster cooling,

Comment: The C12P is certainly a well-made heatsink, but the usefulness of having a portion of the fins extend all the way to the base raises some questions.

Comment: TweakTown Review: The addition of the NF-P14 fan to the NH-C12P cooler is a terrific combination of low temperatures, silence and price.
