Two included NHP12 fans give added performance and added silence by sharing the work at lower speeds.
Quietest CPU cooler I have used to date.
Performance was top notch.
Especially for being a silent cooler.
Top notch performance.
Universal compatibility and easy installation.
Two NFP12 fans included.
Bundle includes noise reduction adaptors for the fans.
Decent cooling performance.
Fairly easy to install.
Very well made.
It will be a costly investment for some people.
Back plate is rather thick.
Not much difference using one or two fans.

If you read Kitguru regularly, there is no chance you will have missed us singing the praises of the Noctua NH D14 cooler which we have affectionately dubbed ‘The Austrian Sandwich’. Even all this time after the initial release, competitors...90

The overall cooling performance of the Noctua NH-U12P SE2 is quite good. The performance is not record breaking by today’s measures, but very good at the time of release, and as our testing has shown, still solid today. The Noctua NH-U12P SE2 is...-

The Noctua NH-U12P SE2 is a great cooler. I was already impressed by its predecessor, the NH-U12P and Noctua has managed to improve on it with the inclusion of an extra NF-P12 fan. The build quality and design are excellent and compatibility is a...-

More important than the NH-U12P SE2’s 2-degree victory is the fact that it’s simply a more complete package. The cooler supports all modern socket interfaces and includes two 120mm fans, all at a price that’s just slightly higher than Thermalright’s...90

The Noctua NH-U12P performs admirably well. You can run the NH-U12P without fans and still get very good cooling performance, but you’ve got to remember to have good airflow in your case to achieve this. Not everyone will see the same results as I...90

The Noctua NH-U12P SE2 is a very good looking cooler that showcases a rather conservative aesthetic, though the fan colour combination may not be to everyone's preference. We do think that performance is where it counts, however, and this Noctua...80
