Need to keep your system as quiet as possible? Want to replace your fans, pumps and other cooling devices with something a little quieter? Noctua is working on a colossal passive CPU cooler, which according to them is designed to dissipate up to 120 watts of heat in cases with good natural airflow, or up to 180 watts in a case with quiet case fans, or with a fan that’s directly mounted to the heatsink. 

Richard Swinburne, an attendee at Computex 2019, has stated that Noctua’s prototype fanless cooler weighs in at 1.5 kilograms and as the pictures here show, utilise seven heatpipes. The cooler supports AMD’s AM4 platform and Intel’s LGA 115x sockets, with the cooler coming with the company’s improved NT-H2 thermal compound. 

At Computex, this cooler was reportedly able to keep an Intel i9-9900K cool and quiet under load, a great achievement, given the high ambient temperatures of the Computex exhibition hall.

At this time, Noctua has no firm release date for its passive CPU cooler design. It is likely that Noctua plans to continue to optimise their passive CPU heatsink further.
