Re: Noctua introduces twin NF-A12x25 NH-U12A CPU cooler

When i first saw that prototype my initial thought was " i want one " followed by " i don't want that weight on my socket " as the HR-02 is bad enough for socket sag when the board is on it's side.

Though Noctua make great mounting hardware so i'm sure they are working on that as well.

Re: Cooler Master MasterAir Maker 3DVVC

Is the build quality any better these days on Cooler Master heatsinks as there have been complaints in the past of them being cheaply built and loose socket mount hardware issues.

Hope they have improved as that looks like a great idea.

Re: Noctua introduces twin NF-A12x25 NH-U12A CPU cooler

There was a couple of reviews when the noctua NH-D14 was released beating the HR-02 in passive mode but i can't remember what CPU it was , i'm pretty sure it was at stock.it would have been interesting to see how they all held up before thermal throttling kicked in. Even though the Noctua D14 has th...

Thanks for the link.

Not sure if it proves wrong all the people that keep saying it's just Panasonic sheets repackaged by IC cooling unless the editor bought the wrong stuff as he used standard PGS and not the thicker soft PGS that Panasonic sell?

I personally dont think there is much credence to the whole "you have to periodically reapply" TIM, or even that they have a shelf life.

Re: Long Lasting Thermal Paste?

I get your point. But thermal paste is used all over the place, almost everywhere electrical components gets hot and require cooling.
