Noctua - Bild

The NH-L9a is a premium quality quiet CPU cooler for AMD based HTPCs and Small Form Factor systems. At a super-low profile of only 37mm, the NH-L9a is ideal for extremely slim cases and due to its 92x114mm footprint, it provides excellent compatibility with tall RAM modules and other components on mini-ITX mainboards. The custom designed SecuFirm2™ mounting system for AM3+/FM1/FM2/FM2+ makes installation a child’s play and thanks to the highly optimised NF-A9x14 premium fan that supports fully automatic speed control via PWM, the NH-L9a runs remarkably quiet. Topped off with Noctua’s renowned NT-H1 thermal compound, the NH-L9a fuses everything users have come to expect from Noctua’s larger coolers into a super-compact package for slim HTPC systems.

Caution: The NH-L9a is a highly-compact low-profile quiet cooler designed for use in small form factor cases and HTPC environments. While it provides first rate performance in its class, it is not suitable for overclocking and only recommended for CPUs with up to 65W TDP (Thermal Design Power). Please consult our TDP guidelines to find out whether the NH-L9a is recommended for your CPU.

    Test verdict: "Oczywiście cooler posiada wszystko to co wersja NH-D15 – znakomitą jakość wykonania, stosunkowe ciche działanie na niższych obrotach, świetne akcesoria i dobrą wydajność. Dlatego też, jeśli starszy model NH-D15 jest zbyt szeroki i nie zamontujecie dwóch śmigieł to polecam zakup tej wersji." (Michał Andruszkiewicz, WhatNext.pl)
