Noctua NH-L9i 95mm SSO2 CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs came broken. avoid until they fix their thead tapping machine. 07/16/2016

This review is from: Noctua NH-L9i 95mm SSO2 CPU Cooler

Pros: looks like it would be nice if their machine did not strip the threads completely out of one side.

Cons: One side of the mounting screw holes is completely fine and works, meanwhile the other side will not screw in. Upon closer inspection I noticed that there are no screw threads at all on one side of the cooler. This side also has larger holes than the working side. This leads me to think that the thread tapping machine completely bored out the holes on that side until it was totally smooth inside. The cooler is unable to mount to the motherboard and is thus useless. Complete waste of money. I will have to attempt to RMA this. I just hope that I don't end up losing money on this due to the manufacturer's mistake.

Other Thoughts: Makes me wonder how many others this happened to. The side mount seems to be removable but I am unable to find them selling a replacement. If there was, I could just replace that mount and not the whole cooler.
