Noctua NH-U14S TR4-SP3, NH-U12S TR4-SP3 and NH-U9 TR4-SP3

The guys from Noctua just introduced their latest arrivals in the company portfolio, which in fact are three high-end heatsinks dedicated for the TR4 and SP3 sockets of AMD’s latest Ryzen Threadripper (X399) and Epyc platforms. The new TR4-SP3 versions of the very well known NH-U14S, NH-U12S and NH-U9 coolers are especially designed to feature a massive nickel coated contact plate with dimensions of 70 x 56 mm as well as the new SecuFirm2™ mounting system for TR4/SP3 sockets.

The cooler is with dimensions of 165 (H) x 150 (W) x 52 (D) mm and weight of 865 g without the fan. When the cooling unit is attached the dimensions increase up to 165 (H) x 150 (W) x 78 (D) mm and weight of 1030 g.

The heatsink itself is a complex structure of nickel coated copper contact plate and heat-pipes, transferring the heat to aluminium cooling fins and dispersed by a single NF-A15 PWM premium fan working at maximum speed of 1500 revolutions per minute, providing airflow level of 140,2 m³/h at noise level of 24,6 dB(A). The fan is equipped with SSO2 bearing and is capable to operate up to 150 000 hours.

The biggest model among the new releases is totally made to provide the highest level of cooling performance and is targeted to the enthusiast-grade TR4/SP3 systems.

Noctua NH-U14S TR4-SP3 is with MSRP of EUR 79.90 / USD 79.90 and 6 years warranty.

The cooler is with dimensions of 158 (H) x 125 (W) x 45 (D) mm and weight of 695 g without the fan. When the fan is mounted on the heatsink the dimensions of the cooler rise up to 158 (H) x 125 (W) x 71 (D) mm and weight of 870 g.

The heatsink itself is also a high quality structure of nickel coated copper contact plate and heat-pipes, transferring the heat to aluminium cooling fins and dispersed by a single NF-F12 PWM fan operating at maximum speed of 1500 revolutions per minute, providing airflow level of 93.4 m³/h at noise level of 22.4 dB(A). The fan is also equipped with SSO2 bearing and is capable to operate up to 150 000 hours.

The smaller model between the new arrivals is focused to provide outstanding cooling performance with excellent compatibility at only 158mm height and 125mm width, which is short enough to be inside most modern tower cases and stays clear of the top PCIe slot on most motherboards

And last but not least…

Noctua NH-U9 TR4-SP3

The cooler is with compact dimensions of 125 (H) x 95 (W) x 71 (D) mm and weight of 660 g without the fan. When the two fans are installed on the heatsink in push-pull setup the dimensions of the cooler goes up to 125 (H) x 95 (W) x 120 (D) mm and weight of 895 g.

The heatsink features a structure of nickel coated copper contact plate and heat-pipes, transferring the heat to aluminium cooling fins and dispersed by two NF-A9 PWM fans operating at maximum speed of 2000 revolutions per minute, providing airflow level of 78.9 m³/h at noise level of 22.4 dB(A) each. The fans are manufactured with SSO2 bearings and are capable to operate up to 150 000 hours.

The smallest version is made to provide 100% PCIe clearance and, at the same time, with only 125mm in height to allow the cooler to fit smaller cases and most 4U size rack-mount enclosures.

Noctua NH-U9 TR4-SP3 is with MSRP of EUR 69.90 / USD 69.90 and 6 years warranty.

 

Please note that the all three models are a dedicated versions for the AMD TR4/SP3 socket. Due to their customized larger base, they cannot be used on any other sockets and are not compatible with Noctua’s standard mounting kits.

In addition, the new SecuFirm2™ mounting system for TR4 and SP3 has been completely custom-designed for the new sockets and is particularly easy to install:

  1. put on the heatsink
  2. fix the four spring-loaded screws

In order to guarantee optimal compatibility with SLI and CrossFire multi-GPU systems, the mounting mechanism also makes it possible to offset the cooler by 3 or or even 6mm towards the upper edge of the motherboard, to overall increase the clearance of the top PCIe slot.
