Noctua are one of our favourite companies when it comes to high end cooling and it would be accurate to say that their NH D14 ‘Austrian Sandwich' shattered all our preconceptions of just what can be achieved on air.
Today we are looking at a model further down their range, called the Noctua NH C12P SE14. Many people reading this may have already seen reviews of the plain NH C12P version – so what has changed?
Well Noctua have switched over the 120mm fan to a bigger 140mm unit and added the “SE14” moniker after it (Special Edition – 14cm). In theory this larger fan should improve cooling and possibly reduce noise levels even further.
