Noctua releases new CPU coolers for Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron CPUs
Vienna, September 25th 2008 - Noctua today released four
new CPU coolers for Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron processors. Optimized for use in
dual socket systems, the new DX (Dual Xeon) and DO (Dual Opteron) versions of
Noctua's highly successful NH-U12 and NH-U9 series introduce the premium
quality quiet cooling performance that has become synonymous with Noctua to the
world of professional workstations and servers.
"Maximum cooling performance at minimum noise levels
and excellent reliability can be particularly important when it comes to
high-end workstations and special server applications", explains Mag.
Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "Due to the ever-growing demand for our Xeon
and Socket F mounting kits, we decided to design new, customized versions of
our coolers that are completely tailor-made for use on Intel Xeon and AMD
Opteron systems, especially dual socket configurations. Enter the DX/DO
Just to name a few examples of the customizations for
server and workstation usage, the NH-U12DX's and NH-U9DX's fin shape has been
modified so that two coolers form an air duct on Dual Xeon setups, producing
superior cooling performance at very low noise levels. Also, the all new
SecuFirm2™ mounting system for Socket 771 comes completely pre-installed in order
to ensure maximum convenience and extremely short installation time. Fully
compatible with the original Intel installation system, the new NH-U12DX and
NH-U9DX work as a simple drop-in replacement for Intel's stock cooler.
Both the new DX series coolers and the NH-U12DO and
NH-U9DO are fitted with Noctua's renowned NF-P12 and NF-B9 fans as well as
NT-H1 thermal compound, making them complete premium quality packages that
provide outstanding quiet cooling performance for Intel or AMD based
workstations and servers.
All new coolers are available immediately. Bundles can be
customized for system integrators.
Noctua comes from a cooperation between the Austrian
Rascom Computerdistribution Ges.m.b.H and the Taiwanese Kolink International
Corporation and has a development partnership with the Austrian Institute of
Heat Transmission and Fan Technology (Österreichisches Institut für
Wärmeübertragung und Ventilatorentechnik, ÖIWV). These connections form the key
to the development of sound-optimised premium components "Designed in
Austria": The partnership with the ÖIWV permits the application of latest
technology in methods of scientific measurement instrumentation, calculation
and simulation in the R&D process. Rascom's long, customer-orientated
experience in developing and distributing sound-optimised high-end components
ensures a clear focus on the users' needs. The use of Kolink's advanced
manufacturing technology and ultra-modern production plants allows Noctua to
efficiently implement its technical edge and provide solutions of the highest
