Back again at Computex 2019, when we visited Noctua at its booth, we observed a concept CPU heatsink, a monolith, with a passive design. In quite a few circles which includes admirers of silent and passively cooled systems, this is a very expected announcement, and whilst there’s nothing at all formal from Noctua nevertheless, the new NH-P1 has been noticed on a listing at Newegg by FanlessTech.
The Noctua NH-P1 features a fully fanless structure, and although you can find no official term on its TDP ranking however, we noticed the principle cooler at Computex 2019 trying to keep an Intel Core i9-9900K cooled in a exam technique. The 9900K for reference has a PL1 score of 95 W, and a PL2 score of 210 W, so we know it has some major cooling probable for a passive cooler.
As with other Noctua CPU coolers, it incorporates its SecuFirm2+ mounting procedure which is compatible with Intel’s LGA1200, LGA115x, and LGA1200xx sockets, and also allows assist for AMD’s AM4, AM3+, AM3, AM2, and FM2 sockets. The finer particulars of the layout are at present unclear, but Noctua does offer a tube of its most current NT-H2 thermal paste with it, as effectively as a restricted 6-yr guarantee. Noctua isn’t going to endorse overclocking owing to the limited cooling houses of a passive style and design, but it can also be employed with Noctua’s fans, with grooves that let end users to include lovers with its retention brackets.
At the time of producing, Newegg has pulled the listing from its web site, which indicates it could have jumped the gun, but we do assume the Noctua NH-P1 to be announced imminently. The Newegg listing had the Noctua NH-P1 at $100, which signifies it’s not likely to be low cost, but it targets a niche sector.
