I was buying the coolermaster 212, but it´s out of stock in my local shop, maybe by thursday it will arrive.

However they have the Noctua NH-L12. Should I buy this one instead?

I'm aware of the 30$ price difference, but which one is the best?

I would personally wait and buy the CM 212 Evo. Just because of it's price...the Noctua is a nice cooler, however that particular model is meant to be used for Low Profile situations (perhaps ITX builds and such) so it might not fair as much for cooling performance.

Of course, I may be wrong but so any input is appreciated.

Like mocchan said, it's used for some mini ATX boards, and this design provide some hot air inside your case not as superior as the way you exhaust hot air by the CM Hyper 212.
