The NH-L9i is a premium quality quiet CPU cooler for Intel LGA115x based HTPCs and Small Form Factor systems. At a super-low profile of only 37mm, the NH-L9i is ideal for extremely slim cases and due to its 95x95mm footprint, it provides full compatibility with tall RAM modules and VGA cards on mini-ITX mainboards. The custom designed SecuFirm2™ mounting system for LGA115x 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-L9i runs remarkably quiet. Topped off with Noctua's renowned NT-H1 thermal compound, the NH-L9i fuses everything users have come to expect from Noctua's larger coolers into a super-compact package for slim HTPC systems.

5 out of 5 eggsGreatest of All Low Profile CPU Coolers

Pros: This is the perfect low profile cooler to include in your 4th Generation Haswell Intel 1150 CPU Socket. I recommend this cooler for all computer builders who have memory sticks, which sit high and get in the way of more traditional after-market coolers. Installation of this cooler is a breeze,

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I will purchase another Noctua NH-L9i 95mm SSO2 CPU Cooler, for my next build today.

4 out of 5 eggsDoesn't fit MSI Z77IA-E53

Pros: Out of almost every board, it doesn't fit mine. I just thought I should tell everyone out there before they are really disappointed and lose money.

Cons: The price seems a bit high to be honest.

5 out of 5 eggsCPU Cooler

Pros: Great all around CPU Cooler, Like the extras that came with this cooler!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If anyone is going to purchase this Cooler check with Noctua's website to see if this cooler will be enough cooling for the processor your going to use, I did some checking and for the i5 4440 Haswel according to Noctua's site it's not recommended unless your going to add additional cooling fans in the case. I am not a gamer so I left everything at stock settings and monitored the CPU temp on a good warm day heat is around 105+ degrees. All so I live in Hawaii so you it gets warm everyday of the year!

5 out of 5 eggsNice little heat sink

Pros: Very nicely built little heat sink. No more than 1.5 inches tall. Cools the processor quite good, for is small size. Very high quality materials. Good thermal paste. I guess size isn't everything..

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsA Perfect Solution For My HTPC

Pros: Extremely easy to install. With the included low noise adapter it makes absolutely no noise. I can't even tell that it is running. Even with my ear right up to it. I built an HTPC Using a Cooler Master Elite 130 Case and it fits so perfectly that I Honestly believe there is no better choice than this CPU Cooler.

Cons: Not One.

Other Thoughts: This Noctua Cooler is not my first Noctua product. I have used their fans plenty of times all with excellent results. It is my first Noctua CPU Cooler though and I am blown away. It is cooling an i5-4670K overclocked to 4.2 GHz on an EVGA Z87 Stinger Mini ITX Motherboard with 16GB of GSkill 1866 MHz Ripjaws and the room I have is incredible. It keeps my temps down really low and I just can't stress enough that this Cooler is a perfect choice for anyone needing a Quiet, Small Form Factor CPU Cooler that keeps temps down. A breeze to install as well. You won't be disappointed if you buy this.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb quality.

Pros: Higher standards of quality than any other HSF/CLR I've used. There are no visible flaws to speak of. When audible (forced) the fan produces a pleasant tone. Installation was straightforward, simple, and sturdy.

Cons: Fan colors might not be for everyone.

Other Thoughts: The CEO (or someone forging his signature) physically signs off on the introduction/instruction manual. Metal case badge! Completely cool. I had been on the fence when considering Noctua because of how jarring the fan colors are when paired with most other enthusiast components. I care a lot less about that now and decided to give them a shot. Noctua earned another customer. I couldn't be happier with the purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsSilent !

Pros: Silent operation
Keeps CPU cool
Small but effective size
Quality

Cons: None !

Other Thoughts: Keeps cpu at 28 idle and 42 load, i have an i5-4430s. I super picky about my cooling components because I like a silent machine and this works amazing. literally silent ! When I first grabbed the cpu I could feel the quality. They include longer screws in case you want to fit a regular 25mm thick fan. how thoughtfull of them.

5 out of 5 eggsBest CPU cooler I owned to date

Pros: I am very happy with this cooler. Its used on a 4770K and keeps the temps between 28C (stock) and 75C full load. Its short and blows the air down towards the board helping that as well.

Cons: Price. A little boring to look at.

Other Thoughts: Really good product. Sorry about the hype on the review title. I dislike hype too.

4 out of 5 eggsA Quality-built CPU Cooler

Pros: Easy installation, great build quality, low profile, quiet at low RPMs, color scheme

Cons: Audile at mid to high RPMs (minus one egg)

Other Thoughts: I have this heat-sink on a stinger Z87 Micro-ATX board and fits the CPU intel (1150-Haswell) socket area for the cooler perfectly. So be aware that if you have any capacitors etc sticking out above the processor in the CPU cooler area, it won't fit on your MOBO.

The fins on the CPU cooler are NOT flimsy and thin aluminum, which give the cooler a solid and sturdy build. This is one of the best built CPU coolers I've experienced provided I have built plenty of gaming systems with liquid coolers and full-sized air coolers.

This has been my first hands-on experience with Noctua and it has been very impressionable. The packaging was premium and laid out nicely. It gives the impression of a company that takes pride in its product(s).

To keep the noise down, I adjusted the CPU fan settings in the bios. With the fan at 25%, the processor idles at about 40 to 42 deg celc and 45-47 deg celc at full load (well within temp parameters). I can hardly hear the fan running even with my head right next to the mesh cover on the processor in my Antec ISK 110 VESA computer case, which sits less than two feet from me on my desk.

I highly recommend this heat-sink unless you get the 4130T i3 processor because it comes with a low profile heat sink. I ordered this cooler with the processor at the same time. So I hadn't realized this until I opened up the processor box. This is the first low-profile fan and heat-sink that I've ever seen that comes standard in box from intel. I kept the Noctua because it's a much large heat-sink (theoretically more heat dissipation so the fan can stay at lower RPMs). It also looks nice in the system. I don’t know how the Intel cooler performs, but other reviews here say it’s pretty quiet hence why I said give it a try first.
