Features    [ Edit | History ]
Features:

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.

Pros
Very good quality. Fits my small MB.
Cons
Doesn't have medium-type screws for inversed position (pull).
Summary
I purchased this unity for my HTPC. Fits well on a Zotac H67ITX-C-E Motherboard.
In push (default) configuration I couldn't see any temperature improvements over the Intel box cooler. Most probably since the PCIe, RAM and chipset radiators are all around it - there's no much cold air to push.
I tried to install it in pull mode, but the provided screws are too short. The longer included screws (for a higher fan) are too long. Noctua support couldn't help, since they don't have the right screws. They just suggested me to find M3 screws of the correct/middle length at any DIY store.
Here, in Montreal - Home Depot, Rona and Reno Depot all have anything bigger than M4. No idea where to find them. I'll try the Pull setup once I'll find the screws

Pros
Silent to quiet
Tiny, will fit any case, no bigger than stock heatsink
Cooling is adequate, especially for the size
Simple mounting
Mirror finish on contact area
Extremely high quality
Cons
Intake is on top, blows hot air down onto VRMs and components
Summary
This is the largest heatsink possible that will fit in the box Intel defines for the heatsink area around the CPU. It's a cube that fits in this space, no taller than the stock heatsink.

It performs better than the stock heatsink though it won't match larger coolers of course. My Core i3-4370 idles at 28 C and full load is 68 C. For a cooler of this size, the performance is pretty good.

As with all Noctua products, it is extremely quiet. At the idle speed of 1000 RPM it's utterly silent. You have to look at it to see if the fan is running and the only indication it is running is that there's a transparent brown blur inside the trademark beige frame. You certainly can't determine that it's spinning from listening to it, you have to place your ear inches away from it to hear the slightest sound. This is at 1000 RPM. At full speed there's a quiet whoosh of air that can barely be heard. It certainly won't be disruptive even with an open-top case like I'm using.

Mounting is ridiculously easy - apply thermal compound, seat the cooler and twist it a bit to spread the thermal comound, thread the screws by hand from the underside, then tighten them slightly with a screwdriver. That's it. The contact surface is a polished mirror finish. They've managed to snake two heatpipes inside the fins.

I'm more used to tower coolers, this is my first aftermarket horizontal cooler. They have a decision to make - take in warm air from around the VRMs and other motherboard components or take in cool air from the top of the heatsink, blowing warm air down to the motherboard. Since this is designed as a CPU cooler, CPU cooling comes first, so the intake is from the top. This blows warm air around the base, heating up motherboard components, but this provides the best cooling for the CPU.

This is an incredible, silent heatsink that accomplishes a lot in a tiny space.

Pros
Small, Quiet, nice package
Cons
Expensive
Summary
I have a Asus P8H61-i and Lian Li Q25 case, been using as NAS for a year. After replace the stock heatsink with this, it is silent now. Of course there is a premium for parts that are small and quiet.

Pros
Very quiet fan, low profile, easy to install, extremely well built, machined
Cons
Easy to get the orientation wrong, can block the CPU fan header on some motherboards if orientated incorrectly
Summary
It's cooling a Xeon E3-1245 which it just about copes with (77W is the top end).
The construction, packaging and quality is absolutely amazing! It's a solid, well machined piece of hardware, and the fan is silent - even when max'd with the case open I can barely hear it.

Now, while it will fit most ITX motherboards, you do need to be careful about how you orient it when installing. The first time I did not pay too much attention and ended up blocking the CPU fan header. As the HSF is screwed in from underneath the motherboard, it is annoying to change. When installing, connect the fan cable first and then secure it.

Otherwise, an awesome product - I would definitely purchase Noctua again and this is just perfect for a quiet, SFF system - just be sure to check the CPU TDP and plan accordingly.

Pros
Compatibility, quietness
Cons
Price, fan colour
Summary
Comes close to the Big Shuriken 2 that I replaced in quietness. Base PWM speed seems a little higher though. I'm using it with an Intel Pentium G620. Just wish it was cheaper, and had a black fan instead of two-tone brown.

Pros
Ultra-quiet (almost unnoticeable to small whirr)
Reasonably cooler than stock
Cons
Expensive
Summary
Still a tight fit on a Zotac mini-itx board (had to cut off the clip of a power connector to get it to lie flat). But it did not hit ram or graphics card with the nubs pointed away; 1cm clearance to the power supply above (Apex mi-008).
Great performance if you're willing to pay and a long warranty if anything does go wrong later.
