This review is from: Noctua NH-L9i 95mm SSO2 CPU Cooler
Pros: I bought two of these for i7 4790Ks even though they're only rated for 65 watts TDP or less. They are extremely quiet. My CPUs (not overclocked) idle at 29-31c and playing Fallout 4 at 33-35c. I quit the game and had Speccy running already and that's what it read so maybe it goes a couple degrees higher. Stressing the cpu's with CPUz will top the temps out at about 73c after a few minutes. That's a bit warm but I read 90-100c is when to worry, and anything is better than the loud stock intel coolers. Installation is really simple. No brackets. Just screw it in through the back of the mobo. Doesn't touch the RAM.
Other Thoughts: There is enough thermal paste (grey/silver in color) for a pea size application with a little left over. Excellent packaging with dense grey foam. They are barely audible with the case off and I did not use the noise dampening cable that came with the coolers. The coolers are of high-quality construction and heavy. I'm a new Noctua fan.READ FULL REVIEW
