Noctua show-offs a new Low-Profile CPU Cooler: NH-L9

Noctua introduced NH-L9i and NH-L9a low profile coolers for Intel and AMD platform, measuring with the low profile of 37mm.


The coolers with "i" and "a" are specifically designed keeping Intel LGA 115x and AMD FMx sockets keep-out zones.

NHL9i measures 95x 95mm whereas a version has a footprint of 92x 114mm. Bunded with the heatsink is the NF-A9x14 premium fans with the support for PWM, fan speed from 2500 to 1800rpm and stays remarkably quiet added with noctua’s Secufirm2 mounting brackets which makes NH-L9a compatible with AMD FM1/FM2/AM3+ sockets and NHL9i compatible with LGA 1150/1155/1156. The heatsink is readily available at the recommended retail price of EUR 39.90/ USD 47.90


Do note however- Noctua states for L9a and L9i is not really for overclocking and its designed keeping 65W TDP processors in mind (95w included for L9i, provided the case has good ventilation).

  1. I wish power supply brands encouraged the sales of passive power supplies as well now that we have mini itx boards, cases and now coolers in full swing. i am curious to see how this will do against ultima 90i…but 92mm fan…wonder how it will do with quaddies with high tdp. not that i am doubting noctua, but i am sure this is made more for quiet operation over enthusiasts…
