    02.10.2015 - BUG 10/2015 NH-U9S
    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)

    01.10.2015 - NH-C14S
    Test verdict: "Noctua NH-C14S is a worthy successor to NH-C14 and is even supreme due to its performance, being achieved with one cooling fan out of the box." (Dobrin Krastev,

    28.09.2015 - PCGH Extreme Forum NF-P14s redux-1500 PWM

    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."
