We’ll take the Noctua NH-U12S CPU Cooler as a Guinea pig, we’ve got a few Noctua coolers kicking about, but this is our latest CPU Cooler review, and it’s a single fan cooler, so it represents the more accessible CPU from a cost point of view out there.

The shroud is attached by some magnets, and sits on a cradle, allowing for a tight fit, no vibration and peace of mind that it’s not going to fall off. The cradle is held on to the heatsink by a small chrome clip, so don’t forget to attach it, it’s easy to miss.
