Noctua is an Austrian company rather new on the scene dealing in after market CPU cooling, here’s a snippet from their webpage.
Noctua aims at establishing a new level of quality and performance "Designed in Austria" through paying attention to the users' needs in a market burdened with all kinds of frills and furbelows and providing sound-optimised premium components, which serve their purpose in a smart, precise and reliable manner.
Noctua has so far been able to produce two CPU coolers the NH-U9 which can be coupled with either an 80mm fan or a 92mm, and the NH-12 that is made for 120mm fans.
Such is the background story behind the Noctua NH-U12, a large 155mm tall heatsink that resembles a Soviet-era apartment block.
The Noctua NH-U12 is a little heavy and a bit bulky for smaller cases, so we'd suggest measuring first to ensure clearance.
The Noctua NH-U12 comes with a variety of brackets for installing the heatsink onto different processor sockets, but the gist is that a set of plates are screwed into the copper base, the backplate positioned behind the motherboard, then everything is screwed down onto the CPU.
