Adding another fan to the Noctua NH-U12S

Hi all,

 

I'm thinking of picking up the Noctua NH-U12S for my new build but I'm curious if I can attach another fan to similar to the dual fan configuration on the NH-U12S redux or U12A.

Would that be possible or is the cooler for the U12S too thin?

 

Thanks!

You should be able to add another fan fairly easily with the same kind of wires that hold the one it comes with on. I can't remember for sure but it might even come with the wires to add the extra fan in the box

Yes. I'm running a U12S with two fans. No issue.

Anti-vibration pads and fan-clips for second NF-F12 (optional)

For users who want to achieve even better performance by adding a second, optional NF-F12 fan to create a push/pull setup, the NH-U12S includes fan clips and an extra set of custom-designed anti-vibration pads that allow to off-set the rear fan by 5mm to improve acoustics in dual-fan mode.
