The HTPC / MediaCenter market is gaining momentum again, and not just for the enthusiasts, but the average “techy” as well. This means that demands on hardware for those applications are rising, and that requires adequate cooling. Noctua did...

The Noctua NH-C12P SE14 is an excellent air cooler with compatibility for an increasing niche market of HTPC and slimmer cases. There are a lot of people who assume that HTPC is really the only use, but that is certainly not the reality. A few months...

For under $70CDN, the Noctua NH-C12P SE14 cooler doesn't fall short in Noctua's impressive lineup of silent coolers. Although it may not perform quite as well as some of it's higher priced siblings, it still does manage to make the...

With the NH-C12P SE14, Noctua has another quality cooler that lives up to their reputation of quiet operation thanks in part to the included 140mm NF-P14 fan. The SecuFirm2 mounting hardware remains one of the easiest to install among high end...

The Noctua C12P SE14 is a premium quality cooler that offers good performance at a premium price. The NF-P14 fan is very quiet at full speed and almost becomes inaudible when the low-noise adapters are used. The low height of the cooler makes it ideal...

Noctua has once again impressed us with another cooler. Time and time again we have seen Noctua put out great coolers. The C12P SE14 will not allow you to achieve the ultimate overclock but it will allow you to keep your rig quiet while providing...

One thing to keep in mind about the Noctua NH-C12P SE14 is that while it's designed to offer you high end cooling (which it does) it's also designed for extra compatibility with a wide range of enclosures. I think Noctua have done well with...

I found the C12P SE14 version available online at an average price around $70 to $75. Although I suspect it may be possible to find the original version listed for less, I was unable to find...

Noctua's NH-C12P SE14 has proven itself to be a worthy contender in today's CPU cooler market. Its quality and bundled accessories set it apart from the rest to make it more appealing. As usual, Noctua has bundled the cooler with easy to install...

The conclusion here is simple and yet also very difficult. If you were looking at buying the NH-C12P SE14 for a system with an overclocked I7 processor then quite simply, don't. It just can not dissipate the heat fast enough and there are better...

It has been almost 2 years since we first took a look at the Noctua NH-C12P CPU Cooler (our original full review can be found here). While the Noctua Noctua NH-C12P SE14 might not be all that different from the original, it has shown in our testing...

Once again, Noctua have produced a pair of products that blows away the competition in every respect. The smaller C12P is easily one of the best coolers I've ever used, and while being quite expensive its passable. Its bigger brother takes the...

The NH-C12P SE 14 is yet another great performing CPU Cooler by Noctua and although it did not perform on par with the best CPU Coolers in the market. Still it did come very close with just a few degrees difference and for an HTPC...

The NH-C12P SE 14 is another solid offering from Noctua. When it was compared to the other high-end heatsinks tested, it performed well by comparison, falling between the NH-U9B SE2 and the Thermalright TRUE. This is an accomplishment in itself,...

For once, it's great to see a company cut corners, and with the NF-P14 FLX 140mm fan that's exactly what Noctua have done. With its circular fan frame and 120mm fan mounting they've managed to produce a 140mm fan that is much more compact...

The new NH-C12P SE14 is a nice refresh to the old design. By simply implementing the new fan to the proven design, Noctua have improved the product by quite a bit, especially considering that the cost will remain the same. Although it may not be...
