Noctua launches LGA4189 cooler series for Xeon W-3300

Noctua is known for its quiet air cooling system introduce A series of coolers suitable for Intel Xeon W-3300 “Ice Lake-64L” processors in LGA4189 package. The series includes four coolers with 90mm, 120mm and 140mm fans, designed for workstations and servers. As always, Noctua promises that its coolers combine high performance and quiet operation.

All Noctua coolers suitable for the Intel Xeon W-3300 “Ice Lake-64L” processor in the LGA4189 form factor adopt the company’s traditional design concept: they use large aluminum radiators and many thin fins. These fins The sheet is pierced by a number of nickel-plated copper heat pipes and welded to the copper base. Depending on the exact model and its performance requirements, the cooling system is equipped with one or two fans, designed to be as quiet as possible. All coolers come with pre-applied thermal paste.

Noctua’s LGA4189 cooler lineup includes the following models:

This NH-U14S DX-4189 The huge tower cooler is equipped with six heat pipes and a 140 mm NF-A15 PWM fan, which rotates at a speed of 300 RPM ~ 1500 RPM to generate an airflow of 140,2 m³/h while generating a maximum of 24.6 dB(A). The device weighs 797 grams and is suitable for large workstations with plenty of space and good airflow.

This NH-U12S DX-4189 A large tower cooler with five heat pipes and two 120 mm NF-A12x25 fans, rotating at 450 RPM ~ 2000 RPM, generate 102.1 m³/h airflow and 22.6 dB(A) maximum noise. This cooling system is the most powerful in Noctua’s cooler series for LGA4189 processors. It is suitable for classic workstations with conservative designs and requires some space in terms of cooling performance. For such machines, two fans may actually be an advantage, because if one fails, the other will continue to run. The device weighs 1018 grams.

This NH-U9 DX-4189 It is a relatively compact tower cooler suitable for smaller workstations. The device is equipped with six heat pipes and two NF-A9 fans, which rotate at a speed of 400 RPM ~ 2000 RPM to generate an airflow of 62.6 m³/h while emitting a noise level of 22.8 dB(A). The product weighs 895 grams.

This NH-D9 DX-4189 4U It is essentially a version of NH-U9 DX-4189, with different radiators and four heat pipes, optimized for 4U server machines. This model offers significantly higher performance, but is quite noisy (up to 30.6 dB(A)) because its NF-A9 fan rotates at a speed of 400 RPM ~ 2500 RPM to produce an airflow of 96.3 m³/h. Nonetheless, since we are dealing with coolers for 4U servers, few people will really lead these fans.
