Bad fan

jason w., Newegg
13 June 2015
  • Summary: Nice HSF overall. Probably easier for me to buy a new fan vs jump through Noctua's hoops.
  • Pros: Small. Works.
  • Cons: Fan making grinding noise after 3 months of 24/7 use. Noctua's RMA process is.... well.... it could be easier.

Want to Love it but...

Jason S., Newegg
1 June 2015
  • Summary: I wanted so badly to love this product-- it has everything going for it except that it doesn't cool very well. That's a major problem for a CPU fan! I'm still impressed with build quality etc but I simply can't overlook the performance.
  • Pros: Really good build quality Great packaging Great thermal paste Great size
  • Cons: Unfortunately, it just doesn't perform near as well as I expected (i7-3770). The online reviews that have done real thermal tests also conclude that it's barely cooler than a stock Intel fan. Luckily I plan to re-use the fan and have some thermal paste left but I had to switch this out for someth...

Im sure its a great cooler....

  • Summary: But it does not work on an evga stinger mini itx board. If you are trying to save space with the cooler for the stunger itx board, dont buy this one. Only H2O and stock work with the stinger. The chipset heatsink is too tall.

Looks great - But missing a screw!

Gavin L., Newegg

  • Summary: This may be a double post.. It appears my previous post did not publish.
  • Pros: Looks good, feels like quality, good packaging
  • Cons: Missing one of the 4 mounting screws! So I can't comment on performance. Waiting on resolution from Newegg/Noctua. Unfortunate that one screw delays my whole build. Possibly considering a temporary replacement.. I will update this review after resolution.

Dramatically overpackaged, and then the fan got really loud after less than a year of use

Patrick Goetz "cultural omnivore", Amazon
10 June 2014
  • Summary: This is a fairly expensive fan, but seemed to be worth it when I first purchased it. I wasn't excited about the ridiculous packaging (similar to Seasonic power supplies), but did need an extremely quiet, low-profile CPU fan.

Fan broke after a few months

Zoe C., Newegg
8 September 2013
  • Pros: While it worked it was great for the purpose I needed it for. Low profile, quiet.
  • Cons: Fan broke after a few months, I just took the fan off and stuck another fan on top of the heatsink. Fan is non standard size and hard to replace in the event it stops working and expensive to replace.

Noctua NH-L9i

Erik, Rozetka

  • Conclusion: Перед покупкой внимательно посмотрите на пространство около процессора ! Если бок(и) конденсаторов расположены слишком близко к процессору или же какой то конденсатор чуть выше других - то можете и не мечтать о этой системе охлаждения ! Радиатор упирается во всё что выступает ! Он ОЧЕНЬ НИЗКИЙ !
  • Cons: Очень низкий радиатор.
