Noctua cooler showing prototypes at Computex




At its booth at Computex halls, the Austrian Noctua its newest products shown. The company is working on a successor to its recently introduced NH-D15. Such successor must be asymmetric in order not to block. Pcie slots

According to Noctua NH-D15 is a great success, with only one drawback: some motherboards, the first pcie slot is blocked by the large heatsink. The sequel, which showed a prototype Noctua gets an asymmetrical design, so the slot free. Noctua also developed a version with a single cooling tower as a successor to the U14s, who also is narrower on the left to keep.’s Pcie slot free The coolers have one or two 150mm fans.

The company is also working on a smaller cooler with 92mm-fans, which can be. Possibly used in a 3u server The 95 by 95 millimeter footprint enables the cooler, in the D-and U-variant, suitable for, inter alia, MITX systems. The low-profile Noctua coolers that showed, with a height of 65mm, for MITX systems suitable. Finally, the manufacturer produced an improved cooler for AM1 systems. They get quite a copper block with screws instead of push pin is secured put to perform with a new 80mm fan on top of its heat.

Of course, the company also gave an update on his active noice canceling technology for CPU coolers. In the first production runs proved various problems to emerge, that had to be solved. Thus appeared the magnets in the fan blades to be seated by melting plastic demagnetized and the software must be some optimized. The technique works by means of a coil in the fan housing in which the blades are very precisely magnet attracts. For example, anti-noise could be based on input from a microphone in the cooler produced.

Finally showed Noctua another two new projects. With the Cube heatpipes, the company wants more heatpipes in contact with the processor block can accommodate. Normally that bent into U-shape, which requires a lot of space. With the blocks at the ends more heatpipes contact with the CPU can make. The second project concerns a polyamide coating on the fins of a fan to print. Turbulence noise This fabric-like finish would yield about 2 dB (A) noise reduction.
