Continuing the legacy of Noctua's classic NH-U-series, which has received more than a thousand awards and recommendations from international hardware websites and magazines, the NH-U12S has become a benchmark for slim, highly compatible 120mm single tower coolers. The TR4-SP3 version is a tailored custom model for AMD's TR4/SP3 platform (Ryzen Threadripper / Epyc) and features a larger contact surface as well as the latest SecuFirm2TM mounting system for socket TR4/SP3. Topped off with the renowned quiet NF-F12 PWM 120mm fan, Noctua's proven NT-H1 thermal compound and a full 6-year manufacturer's warranty, the NH-U12S TR4-SP3 forms a complete premium-quality solution that combines outstanding performance, superb acoustics and excellent compatibility for high-end TR4/SP3 systems.

Please note that the NH-U12S TR4-SP3 is a dedicated version for the AMD TR4/SP3 socket. Due to its customised larger base, it cannot be used on any other sockets and is incompatible with Noctua's standard mounting kits.

Tailored custom version for TR4/SP3 (Ryzen Threadripper/Epyc)
At 70x56mm, the copper contact surface of the TR4-SP3 version is more than double the size of the standard model. Tailored to fit the enormous integrated heat-spreaders (IHS) of AMD's TR4/SP3-based processors, this customised design allows for an optimal heat flow from the CPU over the base to the heatpipes and on to the cooling fins.

120mm size for excellent performance and compatibility
With five heatpipes and the powerful NF-F12 120mm fan, the NH-U12S achieves outstanding cooling performance while maintaining excellent compatibility: At 158mm height and 125mm width, it is short enough to fit most modern tower cases and stays clear of the top PCIe slot on most motherboards.
