Noctua has made their ever popular NH-U12P cooler compatible with the new Intel LGA1156 socket. Join us as we look over the NH-U12P SE2. The NH-U12P SE2 ships with Noctua's SecuFirm2 multi-socket mounting system that combines outstanding compatibility, optimal contact pressure and easy, straightforward installation on Intel LGA1366, 1156 and 775 platforms as well as AMD socket AM2, AM2+ and AM3 platforms.
Back in February of 2008 we had our first encounter with Noctua and their (at that time) flagship cooler, the NH-U12P. This cooler was initially release with LGA775 and AM2 platforms in mind. Since its release there have been new sockets come to market. When Intel released the LGA1366 socket, Noctua released a new version of their SecuFirm mounting system and a dual fan version of the NH-U12P, the NH-U12P SE. Now with the release of the LGA1156 socket Noctua has again updated their cooler mounting system to accommodate the new socket and released a new version of the NH-U12P, the NH-U12P SE2. The NH-U12P SE2 is the same cooler that was released back in 2008; it just has the updated mounting system and a couple of extra accessories that the first release didn’t have.
