Noctua teamed up with RotoSub quite some time ago and Noctua have been working with them ever since to bring RotoSub’s Active Noise Cancelletion (ANC) technology to Noctua’s products. At Computex 2013 Noctua unveiled something very special, the first working prototype of a RotoSub-inspired CPU cooler design.

On the face of it uses a slightly adapted NH-D14 heatsink and adds an NF-A14 fan to the center. Yet the details are key because the NF-A14 fan has been heavily adapted with RotoSub ANC technology and features a wider 30mm fan frame for higher airflow. The whole design uses a custom designed metal shroud to enclose the CPU cooler.

Furthermore Noctua are claiming an impressive full ram compatibility up to 70mm in height, because there is no outside fan. Currently this design is only in prototype and you can see a more in depth video overview of the new prototype below.
