Noctua NH-U12P CPU Cooler Accessories and Manual:


Now we move onto the manual and accessories section, which normally would be one or two pictures and that's all, but I can't not mention the manual and accessories that come bundled with the Noctua NH-U12P Cooler, and therefore I've given the Manual and Accessories their very own section.

First of all, let's look at the manual (pictured below, Left), they have a booklet that opens up and inside are two different sides that give complete instructions for LGA775 Sockets and then another set of instructions for AM2 Sockets, so you're not going to have to try and find the instructions for your socket and try and skip over the sections you don't need. This might not seem like a big deal, but I've seen a few coolers in the past that have terrible instructions and it's not the easiest task to find the section in their manual that you actually need. I've got to give credit to Noctua for really thinking this through and they've made it simple even for the most inexperienced user to complete the installation easily.

Now we move onto the accessories (pictured below), at first glance they might look quite normal until I point out a couple things.

First of all, the LGA775 hardware is individually packaged, as is the AM2 accessories, no need to try and separate what you need and don't need.

Second of all, you'll notice that it comes with a full tube of Noctua NT-H1 thermal paste, enough for a few installations no problem, which is a nice change from some coolers that we've seen that barely have enough thermal paste to complete more than two installations, good on Noctua for including a little extra.

Third you might notice what looks like a screwdriver, and yes it is in fact a screwdriver. Now you might be saying "Ok... I already own a screwdriver, why do I need another?", well if your anything like me, you first have to find that screwdriver that you placed somewhere for safe keeping and now have to sort through the stack of papers on your desk to find, and then you have to hope it's actually the right screwdriver. Noctua has thought about this and have made things easy by including their own with the cooler, so you have no excuses why you can't have this cooler installed in under 10 minutes. Now this screwdriver will definitely not make you run out and buy this cooler, it's just worth noting that Noctua has gone the extra mile and really made things easy for the consumer who purchases their coolers, and I think a lot of people will appreciate that.
