    FAQ



    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: "Noctua NH-L9x65 to wprawdzie bardzo kompaktowy cooler CPU ale mimo to jest on godnym następcą modelu NH-L9. Po pierwsze oferowana przez niego wydajność już bez problemu wystarczy do zastosowań przy chłodzeniu nawet wydajniejszych procesorów (a przynajmniej jeśli chodzi o jednostki 4-rdzeniowe). Po drugie producent nie rozdziela już tego modelu coolera na wersję dla AMD i wersję dla Intel a zatem jest to rozwiązanie zdecydowanie bardziej uniwersalne." (Łukasz Talkowski, BestPCInfo.pl)

Test verdict: "Ci sentiamo di consigliare caldamente il nuovo Noctua per tutti gli usi, non solo per HTPC, tenere testa e battere soluzioni più grosse dimostra la cura in cui Noctua ripone nei suoi prodotti." (Michele Mura, hwresources.org)

Test verdict: "In the end, the Noctua NH-D9L, U9S and L9x65 are certainly among the best 92 mm low-profile coolers in the market that money can buy. For rig builders who are planning to set up a small HTPC and small form factor system, these coolers could be the perfect choice for you!" (Kevin Owi Kheng Him, OCDrift.com)
