    Is the cooler compatible with the Intel LGA2011 socket and Asus X-socket™?

    The cooler doesn’t come with LGA2011 mounting hardware out of the box, but it can be upgraded to support LGA2011 via the NM-I2011 mounting kit.

    Please also note that the cooler is fully compatible with Asus Rampage IV series LGA2011 motherboards that feature Asus X-socket™. Asus X-socket™ models use an interchangeable backplate that makes it possible to install LGA1366 heatsinks, so the cooler is fully compatible with these mainboards out of the box and does not require any upgrades to be installed.

    Asus X-socket

    In order to install the cooler on Asus X-socket™ mainboards, please first remove the mainboard’s LGA2011 backplate and install the LGA1366 backplate supplied with the mainboard instead (see the mainboard manual for detailed instructions). Then install the Noctua cooler as described in the supplied installation manual for LGA1366. In case you’ve lost the printed installation manual, you can download it here.

Test verdict: "Performanse hladnjaka su, s obzirom na njihove gabarite, izvrsne. Pod time podrazumijevamo da će bez problema hladiti većinu procesora koji su trenutno na tržištu, čak i ako se odlučite na overklokiranje." (Denis Arunović;, BUG BUG 10/2015)

Test verdict: "Für mich sind die redux-Lüfter ein Top Produkt das nur von der 'vollen' Variante übertroffen wird" (Julian Brockmeier, PCGH Extreme Forum)

25.09.2015 - NH-D9L
Test verdict: "Mais uma vez, a Noctua não tem intenções de parar e fez um excelente trabalho que junta a eficácia e a qualidade em apenas um só. O Noctua NH-D9L é um cooler com apenas 11 centímetros que junta compatibilidade, qualidade e performance, fazendo-o assim um dos principais coolers para configurações mATX ou abaixo desta."
