  • Summary: Noctua's low profile NH-L9i heatsink stands 36mm tall so it will fit into the smallest of small form factor chassis. The NH-L9i is designed to cool Intel socket LGA115x (1155/1156/1150) processors only, which is a departure from the one-size-fits-all approach we're used to.

Noctua NH-L9i Low Profile Heatsink

Ninja Lane
7 February 2013
  • Summary: The Noctua NH-L9i is a premium heatsink designed for systems where space is an issue and noise control is of utmost importance like a HTPC and SFF (Small Form Factor) PC.  These systems often feature half height chassis designs and sometimes have the PSU directly over the CPU both of which limit the size of your heatsink.  The Noctua NH-L9i is designed to address these issues and boldly cool where no other cooler can.
  • Pros: Low Profile Cooler, Silent Operation, Large Mass Design, Better Than OEM, Perfect for HTPC
  • Cons: Limited heat capacity, Clearance issues with some pwm heatsinks
