L'austriaca Noctua ha annunciato, mediante il comunicato stampa allegato di seguito, la realizzazione del nuovo dissipatore attivo per cpu siglato NH-U9 (cfr. foto seguente).
Si tratta di una soluzione che sostituisce il prodotto siglato NH-U12F ed esibisce buone doti dal punto di vista della efficienza di raffreddamento (la ventola applicata alle alette raggiunge i 92mm, ndr) e di silenziosità: il livello di rumore può raggiungere infatti il valore minimo di 7dB.
Il nuovo NH-U9 può essere abbinato ai processori compatibili con i seguenti socket: 775, 754, 939 e AM2. Il prezzo consigliato dal produttore è pari a circa €45.
Vienna, December 4th 2006 - Noctua today presented the successor of its
NH-U9 CPU cooler, which has been recommended by over 50 leading
international websites and magazines. The new NH-U9F comes equipped with
a 92mm Noctua SSO-Bearing fan that has a minimum noise rating of only
7dB(A). It's fully AM2 compatible and can be installed turned by 90° in
order to ensure an optimal orientation and compatibility. Thanks to its
compact size, the NH-U9F is the perfect premium-class cooler for all
applications demanding excellent cooling performance, outstanding
quietness and maximum compatibility.
"After the big success of our fan series and the NH-U12F, many customers
have asked us whether there'll be a new version of the NH-U9 that
includes a fan", says Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "With the NH-U9F,
we've finally added a more compact ultra-low-noise cooler with fan to
our product line!"
The 92mm fan used on the NH-U9F employs Noctua's magnetically centred,
self lubricating oil-pressure bearing (SSO-Bearing) and boasts a maximum
airflow of 58m³/h. Thanks to the supplied Ultra-Low-Noise adaptor, the
noise level can be lowered to only 7dB(A)! As a result, the NH-U9 is
ideal for demanding high-performance cooling as well as true
The new NH-U9F is compatible with socket LGA 775, 754, 939, 940 & AM2
and can be installed turned by 90° in order to ensure an optimal
positioning of the cooler within the airflow inside the case and to
evade compatibility issues with non-standard chipset coolers or RAM modules.
"In addition to factors such as cooling performance, quietness of
operation, long-term stability and compatibility, we attach great
importance to the reliability of the mounting system", says Mag. Roland
Mossig, Noctua CEO. "The SecuFirm mounting system of the NH-U9F makes
it possible to safely transport the assembled system without any risk
even though the cooler exceeds the 450g weight specification established
by Intel and AMD."
Noctua's SecuFirm mounting system guarantees optimal contact pressure
and maximum security thanks to the use of a backplate and spring-loaded
