[Frontpage News]Noctua NC-U6 Northbridge Cooler

Noctua NC-U6 Northbridge Cooler

We have posted up yet another review and this time we feature a Northbridge cooler from Austria's Noctua.  We've got the NC-U6 on the bench and LiViD checks out performance of this not-so-little cooler on his mATX motherboard.  If you need to replace a noisy Northbridge fan, this would be a great way to go.  It isn't cheap (fairly pricey in fact) but then again, it isn't cheap (Top-Quality product).  Take a look at our review for all the details.

Installation of this cooler can be a little tricky, especially if you are working with an m-ATX motherboard such as this. The retention clip is easily adjustable to fit any angle as all motherboards have different layouts for pins. I had no problems getting the cooler installed with the 3DRocket-II being installed on the processor. If you have a larger cooler, for example the Zalman CNPS9500 or CNPS9700, you might have some growing pains as the NC-U6 stands over 10cm tall due its heat pipe design.

If you have any questions or comments about the NC-U6 Northbridge cooler, please post them right here in this thread.
