The NH-P1 is Noctua's latest coolest design and long-awaited model. This is because it is designed to be used without fans for really passive PC versions. It can be combined with an impressive range of moderate-power CPUs, says Noctua, but if you want to go into high-performance territory, you may want to consider the optional low-speed fan of this little extra airflow.
He Passive NH-P1 is available worldwide starting today for $ 110 / € 110, while the optional fan, the NF-A12x25 LS-PWM, costs $ 30 / € 30.
