   Shipping Weight:   1.6 lbs
   Part #: NH-L9a

Features    [ Edit | History ]

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.

Experience: 2 Weeks
Quality product, low profile to fit in ITX case
Cost, thats about it
Very good product, obvious in the quality and build of product . Packaging outstanding. Everything you need to quickly install it. I also have another Noctua product and personally if I need another heatsink I will only buy their product. Excellent on my FM2+ w A8 7600 APU and msata Crucial M4

Experience: 11 Months
Very Quiet, Slim design
Fan gave out after 11 months, Noctua colors
I've had this cooler installed on a media server for 11 months. I went on vacation so turned off the server. When I came home, I fired up the server but it kept shutting down - when I checked the cause it was thermal overload. Further investigation showed the fan to be malfunctioning - it no longer spins freely.
I'm still giving 2 stars even though the server is pretty much on 24-7 - I expect a fan (especially Noctua) to last longer than that. However, I'm going to replace the fan with the exact same one since I trust Noctua fans that much. I will RMA the broken fan just so I can have a replacement on hand in case this happens again.

Low Profile, quiet, Quality package, decent price, even better PP price. :)
AMD only, Noctua colours.
Running one on an mITX APU build with no complaints. Cooling performance is night and day when compared to the stock cooler. They've included enough TIM for at least 3 reseats, and the overall quality of the HSF build and included components is top notch considering the price.

I'd definitely buy another one if I were looking for a low profile AMD heatsink.

-easy install
-low profile
- not compatible with Giga
Good performing, quiet cooler that's low profile. Bought it for a Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI ITX board but found out it's not compatible. The RAM slots are too close. As a workaround I removed the fan mounts and shifted the fan over so that it doesn't get in the way of the RAM and used zip ties instead.

Experience: 60 Days
low profile cooler
pricematch required
nice low profile cooler installs easily and works slightly better than stock cooler

Quiet. Very low profile.
I wanted a quiet, very low profile cooler for a very low profile HTPC case. My first choice (at around $35) turned out to be out of stock everywhere in Canada. This unit has a less elegant design and uses lower grade components. There was basically no other choice except to use the noisier stock cooler. This review was modfied by poster a 01-17-13 11:23 AM
