Noctua NH-L9x65 low profile cpu cooler comes with pre-installed 4 pin NF-A9x14 PWM fan and is attached with 2 wire clips on both sides on the lower notch. Fan have 9 blades.

NH-L9x65 stands only 65mm tall (the same height as low-profile expansion cards), which makes it ideal for use in compact HTPCs or Small Form Factor cases that offer limited clearance for CPU coolers. NH-L9x65 has a 95x95mm footprint that complies exactly to the Intel LGA115x socket keep-out zone. This means that it won’t cause issues with chipset coolers and doesn’t overhang the RAM slots, making it fully compatible with tall memory modules.

Many Intel LGA115x based mini-ITX mainboards have the PCIe slot sitting close to the 95x95mm socket zone. While larger coolers that exceed this zone may block the PCIe slot, the 95x95xmm sized NH-L9i provides full compatibility with PCIe cards.

Noctua NH-L9x65 low profile cpu cooler base and the heatpipes are nickel-plated and have a reflective shiny surface. The contact base however, has very fine rounded machining marks and is visibly convex in the center.

Noctua NH-L9x65 low profile cpu cooler have 4 heatpipes and they are nickel-plated.

The NF-A9x14 PWM fan is working with PWM control to 2500. The nine-blade fan flow acceleration channels at the tips of the intake side for minimizing vortex noise and improving airflow efficiency. The fan cable is nicely sleeved and has a black 4-pin connector.

Noctua NH-L9x65 is a serious piece of cooler engineering. Noctua NH-L9x65 low profile cpu cooler base nickel-plated. Noctua’s SecuFirm2™ mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety and ease of use. Supporting Intel LGA115x (LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156), LGA2011 and AMD (AM3(+), AM2(+), FM1, FM2(+)), the SecuFirm2™ mounting included with the NH-L9x65 guarantees perfect contact pressure and maximum convenience on all current sockets.

The NH-L9x65 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 should be used with care on CPUs with more than 84W TDP (Thermal Design Power). Please consult our TDP guidelines to find out whether the NH-L9x65 is recommended for your CPU.

Noctua  focus on premium grade cooling components for compact systems such as ITX based gaming or Home Theater PCs. So that Noctua NH-L9x65 low profile cpu cooler showing good performance then i thought. Fan is a little noisy at maximum speed of 2500rpm that is natural. But we can arrange its noise with LNA adaptör or with BIOS arragement. Because PWM fan is working with 4 power pin.
