The NH-L9a is a premium quality quiet CPU cooler for AMD based HTPCs and Small Form Factor systems. At a super-low profile of only 37mm, the NH-L9a is ideal for extremely slim cases and due to its 92x114mm footprint, it provides excellent compatibility with tall RAM modules and other components on mini-ITX mainboards. The custom designed SecuFirm2™ mounting system for AM3+/FM1/FM2/FM2+ 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-L9a runs remarkably quiet. Topped off with Noctua's renowned NT-H1 thermal compound, the NH-L9a fuses everything users have come to expect from Noctua's larger coolers into a super-compact package for slim HTPC systems.

Poor customer service following RMA 7/11/2018 3:19:20 PM

Pros: n/a

Cons: n/a

Overall Review: Ordered this product from AmaMax, then decided on a different platform. I started an RMA and returned the unopened package with RMA number attached to outside of package as requested. Over 30 days and I have not received an update from AmaMax and no interest in helping me, and RMA was voided. Almost no email response. I called and seller is unwilling to look into this. I'm unable to leave seller feedback because invoice is over 60 days old but this issue has not been resolved by seller so leaving complaint as a product review.

Works great! 3/24/2018 8:56:28 PM

Pros: This dropped my case temps from 60C to 40C compared to the stock cooler. And I can't hear the fan at all. You can really tell they have some great engineers at this company and I know engineering because it's what I do for a living. By far the best packaged computer component I've ever purchased.

Cons: The earthtone clay colors. I understand it's a company trademark/tradition and I appreciate how nice it looks in the exquisite packaging. I do not appreciate how it looks through the lighted glass side of my case. Noctua, if you read these reviews, please consider some darker earthtones.

Overall Review: Support this company so they can continue to produce great products.

An Ideal Cooling Solution 7/9/2017 1:54:08 AM

Pros: -Quiet
-Compact (interferes with nothing on a Gigabyte AMD ATX Mobo)
-Effective on my old 45 watt Athlon HTPC

Cons: -None for my application

Overall Review: This cooler is by far the best in its class. The packaging is exceptional, and the case badge makes all others look like they came from a Cracker-Jack box (the thing is metal, and I don't mean foil).

Pros: It really is thin and whisper quiet.

Cons: Non so far. But I am using it for my everyday Internet computer watching movies occasionally.

Overall Review: If you really care about quiet machine this is your choice.I am happy ant I thing I will replace my other ones. I am tired listening this noisy box.

First Noctua Cooler 11/8/2016 5:54:26 PM

Pros: -Beautiful
-Silent
-Easy to install
-High quality components
-Brilliant packaging

Cons: -Doesn't keep the CPU under 60°c (Not necessarily a con, I explain below)

Overall Review: While 60°C seems like a high temperature, its actually perfectly safe. In the case I put this cooler in, there isn't that great of Airflow, so your results my yield lower temps.

I originally purchased this since Noctua comes highly recommended for their silent coolers. This cooler is very silent. I can hear the Power Supply fan for the first time ever. Now I might replace my power supply fan with a Noctua fan to even out the sound.

If you plan on replacing the stock cooling fan on your PC, this is a very smart choice.

If you plan on overclocking, or using this for a 9590. DO NOT BUY THIS. Noctua has many other choices for quality Air Cooling.

Two days in and so far so good 6/11/2016 11:44:13 AM

Pros: Fit my MSI FM2 board with no trouble.

Cons: None yet, but having to take of factory heat sink hardware is scary.

Overall Review: The height is what pushed me to this. 37 MM high in a slim line HTPC case, pretty much a no brainer.

awesome cooler, but be aware! 5/22/2016 9:46:49 AM

Pros: This fan is near silent. The only time you'll ever hear it is under load at the highest rpm (2500).

The packaging that noctua gives you makes you feel like a premium customer. It's slick and smart and gives off the impression of luxury.

It comes with a wonderful thermal compound.

Cons: This can't really be a con in noctua, really it is more for newegg, Amazon and other retailers.

THIS COOLER IS RATED FOR CPUS WITH A MAX TDP OF 65W.

I see there are other reviews here saying that this cooler is being used with fx-8350s and what have you, but if you are having problems, check what the thermal output is on your CPU before blaming the noctua. I made this mistake as my A10-6800k is a 100W TDP CPU and was running at about 85-95 Celsius. Don't make the mistake that I made.

Pair this with an A10-7860k or any other 65w CPU and you'll be in good business, no problems. It will unleash the full potential of this fantastic CPU cooler.

Overall Review: When I realized my mistake I actually went out and bought a 65w Athlon instead of replacing the cooler because of how much I like it in my mini-ITX build. It really is a kickin cooler.

All of the relevant information that I found was actually on noctua's website, so I would recommend checking that out to get the full run down on whatever product you're checking out.

Quality for a cheap cooler 5/11/2016 7:50:41 PM

Pros: This cooler is pure quality, when you hold it in your hands you can feel weight to it which is impressive for a small cooler, it keeps the 8350 cool even underload

Cons: nothing I can think of

Overall Review: Well Noctua quality and awesomeness, you can't go wrong with Noctua
