works flawlessly, silently and keeps the monster beneath it cool.
I recommend this product, but if you're a hard core gamer or do a lot of processor intensive tasks such as transcoding or rendering, then you may want to replace the fan with a quieter one.
It arrived in great shape, the parts for Intel and for AMD neatly separated. It's large so make sure you take measurements before ordering and I'd suggest if you have any cables that're going to be pushed aside by it, unplug them and get them out of the way while you're mounting it. I took a shortcut thinking I'd just squeeze them aside, but they threw me off enough before I got to tightening that I had to re-grease and reseat it.
Installation on an Asus M4A785TD-V EVO went without issues, did not have to remove the motherboard.
I had a stock cooler for the AMD Phenom II X2, and with the two "extra" cores unlocked it used to reach this processor's instability zone of 55C within a couple minutes under full load, hit 57C within five, at which point I cease any stress tests. Note that the proper Phenom II X4 quad cores come with a beefier heatsink than my X2 stock cooler.
Now with the NH-C12P SE14 hooked up, fan at full speed, it's holding steady at a healthy 49C after a full hour of 100% load, 4 cores, with a mild overclock to 3.3GHz up from 3.1. It's done exactly what I wanted it to do; lowered my temps in general by a good 8-10C and more importantly lowered the peak load temp to something safe with headroom to overclock, down from a temperature cap I couldn't even ascertain with the stock HSF because it was reaching an unhealthy temp within minutes. I can now either push the overclocking, lower the fan speed to absolutely silent levels, or do a little bit of both.Read more ›
My latest build is a AM3 X4 965 BE on an Asus M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 mobo in a Cooler Master 690 II Advance case.
I over clocked from the stock 3.4 to 3.9 and my idle temp is 27C. At load the warmest I've seen is 49C! I am using the normal configuration mobo connector and haven't even tried the "quiet" low voltage connector. If I put my head about a foot from my open case I can hear the fan.
After my system is burned in good I will see how high I can clock before my temps get serious.
It is a little fussy to install, but is way better than the stock AM3 mobo clamp set up. I used the included Noctua thermal paste. Start up idle temp was abut 35C and in three days it was down to 27C.
Very impressed and quite satisfied.

Very quiet. Just make sure to check the depth of your case. The cooler is large, but I had plenty of space in my mid-tower case.
My system is nearly silent and cool.
Seems to cool stock frequencies nicely. I have been using it for months now and no problems.Published on April 24, 2014 by Alan D. Cutright
