The NH-P1 Passive Heatsink has a fanless design with six heat pipes that transfer heat from the processor towards the massive radiator with widely spaced fins. Noctua has claimed 100% compatibility with memory slots and the first PCIe expansion slot for most ATX and microATX motherboards. Noctua commends pairing the passive CPU cooler with the brand’s own NF-A12x25 LS-PWM 120mm cooling fan that’s hardly audible for added cooling or consumers who want to leverage a semi-passive configuration.
Noctua doesn’t advise consumers to use the CPU cooler for overclocking or with processors that are space heaters. The NH-P1’s performance depends on many factors, including ambient temperature and the hardware inside the system. Accordingly, Noctua doesn’t commit to a TDP (thermal design power) rating instead of that, it is suggesting that consumers should consult the NH-P1’s processor compatibility list.
