2 Dual-Heatpipes for optimal heat absorption


Using 2 u-shaped Dual-Heat-Pipes, the NC-U6 has sufficient capacity to reliably dissipate even the heat generated by overclocked high-end chipsets.


29 aluminium cooling fins for optimal heat dissipation


Thanks to a surface area of more than 500cm², the cooling fins dissipate the heat extremely fast - without the need of an additional fan!


Soldered joints for optimal heat-transfer


Unlike many other coolers, whose heatpipes are stuck to the base and the fins, the NC-U6 possesses high-grade soldered joints to ensure optimal heat transfer.


Easy installation on Intel and AMD mainboards


The NC-U6 comes with mounting parts for Intel and AMD mainboards and uses the existing fastening hooks or push-pin mounting holes.


Can be turned by up to 120° for maximum compatibility


In order to achieve maximum compatibility with mainboards, VGA cards and CPU coolers, the NC-U6 can be turned by up to 120°.


The above features and specifications (taken from the Noctua website,) are fairly self-explanatory. For the metrically challenged among us, the NC-U6 measures 3.4 high by 2.75 wide and 0.93 thick with a 1.3 square base. Weighing in at just under 4.6 ounces with an impressive combined surface area of 77.5 square inches, this cooler packs a lot of cooling potential into a small, lightweight package. Wide compatibility and a six-year warranty could serve the dedicated user through several motherboard swaps.

 

PRODUCT COMPOSITION



The retail packaging is simple and straightforward, keeping with Noctua's penchant for avoiding all things showy and superfluous.



Inside, we can see a relatively small number of components. As we'll see later, this doesn't impact compatibility and mounting options in the least.
