Noctua NH-U12S DX-4189 Intel Xeon LGA4189 CPU Cooler

Noctua’s DX line of CPU coolers are the default choice in premium grade quiet cooling solutions for Intel Xeon LGA4189 processors.

Features

  1. DX series for Intel LGA4189 platform
  2. Enlarged contact surface with pre-applied thermal compound
  3. Dual NF-A12x25 120mm fans with Y-cable
  4. Six year manufacturer’s warranty

Noctua’s DX line CPU coolers have become a default choice in premium grade quiet cooling solutions for Intel Xeon processors. The NH-U12S DX-4189 features a larger, custom-designed contact surface for LGA4189 platforms. Based on the proven, 120mm size NH-U12S heatsink and equipped with two of Noctua’s award-winning, PWM controlled NF-A12x25 120mm fans, it provides an excellent balance of performance, compatibility and quietness of operation. Topped off with the professional SecuFirm2 mounting system and pre-applied NT-H1 thermal compound, the NH-U12S DX-4189 forms a complete premium quality package for quietly cooling LGA4189 based Xeon workstations and servers.

Please note: The NH-U12S DX-4189 is a dedicated version for the Intel LGA4189 socket. Due to its customised larger base, it cannot be used on most other sockets and is incompatible with Noctua’s standard mounting kits.

The plastic CPU carrier frame supplied with the cooler is for LGA4189-4 (P4) only. LGA4189-5 (P5) systems use the same mounting mechanism systems but require a different CPU carrier frame. Please contact [email protected] if you would like to use the cooler on a LGA4189-5 (P5) type system.

DX series for Intel Xeon

First introduced in 2008, Noctua’s DX line CPU coolers have become a standard choice when it comes to quiet, premium grade air cooling solutions for Intel Xeon processors. Thanks to their superior acoustic efficiency, they are ideal for workstations and servers that run in noise sensitive environments (e.g. audio/video production, content creation, engineering, etc.).

Customised for LGA4189

The new DX-4189 line coolers are dedicated, customised solutions for Intel’s professional LGA4189 platform (Whitley), which makes them an ideal fit for both Ice Lake-SP based 3rd generation Xeon Scalable CPUs (Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze) and W-3300 series Xeon processors for workstations (Ice Lake-64L).

Enlarged contact surface

At 70x56mm, the heatsink’s copper contact surface is more than double the size of the standard model. Tailored to fit the enormous integrated heat-spreaders (IHS) of Intel’s LGA4189-based processors, this customised design allows for an optimal heat flow from the CPU over the base to the heatpipes and on to the cooling fins.

SecuFirm2 mounting system with standard Intel parts

Integrating standard Intel parts such as the anti-tilt mechanism, Torx T30 PEEK nuts and LGA4189-4 (P4) CPU carrier frame, the cooler’s mounting system is fully compliant with Intel’s installation guidelines and provides a familiar mounting procedure for experienced LGA4189 users. A Torx T30 mounting tool is included.

LGA4189-4 (P4) CPU carrier frame

The scope of delivery includes an LGA4189-4 (P4) type CPU carrier frame for Intel Ice Lake-SP and Ice Lake-64L based processors (Whitley platform). However, the heatsink’s SecuFirm2 mounting system also supports P5 type LGA4189 sockets (LGA4189-5) for Intel Cooper Lake based processors. CPU carrier frames for LGA4189-5 are available on request via [email protected]

Dual NF-A12x25 PWM fans

The NH-U12S DX-4189 is equipped with two of Noctua’s award-winning, next-generation NF-A12x25 120mm fans. This exquisite, state-of-the art push/pull dual fan configuration allows it to achieve a remarkable level of quiet cooling performance despite its relatively compact size.

6-year manufacturer’s warranty

Noctua products are renowned for their impeccable quality and outstanding longevity. True to this legacy, the NH-D9 DX-4189 4U heatsink is built to last, and like all Noctua fans, the supplied NF-A9 units feature an MTTF rating of more than 150,000 hours. The entire package comes with a full 6-year manufacturer’s warranty.
