  • Excerpt: Ever since I met Chris Ram and started discussing CPU coolers with him, the name Noctua was soon to be added from his side of the conversation. Chris was sure to make sure I knew they were some of the quietest, most efficient coolers money could buy, in his opinion. He has tested and personally used some of Noctuas products before, but this is my first time looking at one of their products to gauging whether or not what Chris had told me about these CPU coolers was true.

  • Excerpt: Noctua, makers of some of the best case fans on the market, has branched out into the CPU cooler market, which is a move that makes sense since they already dominate the high-end fan market. They sent us one of their new CPU coolers, the Noctua NH-U9B, to test out. Will this be a natural expansion of their product line or will we find growing pains? Read on to find out.

  • Summary: This time around, Noctua nickel plate all copper surfaces and bundle in the super quiet NF-B9 fan - and it's not your average vaneaxial fan either.

Noctua NH-U9B CPU Cooler

BCCHardware
20 April 2008
  • Summary: The last Noctua cooler I reviewed (NH-U12P) raised the bar when it comes to air-cooling, and when I received the NH-U9B I was very optimistic about how it was going to perform. Comparing the two against each other really isn't fair, since they are both aimed at a different consumer, but a lot of the things I really liked about the NH-U12P, Noctua was able to incorporate into the NH-U9B, and that is a good thing.
  • Pros: Very Quiet at Low Speeds, Good Performance, Great Accessories and Manual Included, Reasonably Priced, Fits into smaller cases that cannot support a big heatsink and fan
  • Cons: None

Noctua NH-U9B CPU Cooler Review

  • Conclusion: The name Noctua isn't a widely known brand, and it's a shame really, they make very good quality and excellent performing products. Once people start to realize that Noctua is just as good if not better in some instances, Noctua will become one of the more highly recognized names in the industry.

Noctua NH-U9B CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Canucks
25 January 2009
  • Conclusion: In many ways the U9 is its own worst enemy, since it is almost as expensive as its bigger brothers yet can’t quiet live up (let alone surpass) the U12 and C12's performance shadow. The fan which it comes with is quite decent as a value added fan but it really is not in the same league as its bigger brother the NF-P12 which also comes with both the U12 and C12.

22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Unser Test konnte beweisen, dass nicht unbedingt die Größe Rückschlüsse auf die Kühlleisung geben muss. Natürlich konnte er nicht mit dem deutlich größeren Kühlkörper aus eigenem Hause mithalten, aber andere Konkurrenzprodukte sicherlich schlagen. Außerdem überzeugen uns die Ausstattung, u.a.
  • Pros: Geringe Abmessungen, Optimale Ausstattung, AM2(+)/AM3/LGA 775 kompatibel, Bei Kontaktaufnahme mit Noctua auch auf LGA1156/1366 montierbar, Top Verarbeitung/Materialgüte, Sichere Montage, Recht gute Leistungsmerkmale, Lange Garantie von 6 Jahren
  • Cons: Normalerweise Mainboardausbau zur Montage nötig, Nur englische Installationsanleitung mitgeliefert, gehobenes Preissegment

  • Conclusion: Para realizar las pruebas de temperatura, trabajamos con dos escenarios, uno para obtener el estado Idle , en el que tuvimos al PC con programas de ofimática y navegando con el Explorer, y para obtener el estado full , utilizamos el programa Cpu-Burn . El periodo de estudio fue de 15 minutos en ambos casos.
  • Pros: Capacidad de refrigeración, Silencioso, Completo y detallado kit de fijación, Acabado impecable
  • Cons: Tamaño ligeramente excesivo en altura

Сравнение кулеров Noctua NH-U9B и Xigmatek HDT-SD964

HardwarePortal
17 February 2009
  • Summary: Оба протестированных кулера показали схожую производительность. При своих довольно компактных размерах они могут послужить великолепным инструментом даже в руках экстремальных оверклокеров. Возможность их установки в системы HTPC, делают эти два продукта еще более интересными. А способность охлаждать процессор вашего компьютера совершенно бесшумно делают эти продукты подходящими для огромного количества пользователей.

Review Noctua NH-U9B

Traficantes de Hardware
7 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Nos hemos quedado sorprendidos del excelente rendimiento alcanzado por este pequeño disipador de cpu de Noctua , muy superior a coolers de mayor envergadura. El fabricante austriaco ha lanzado este NH-U9B al mercado para cubrir el sector de equipos HTPC o chasis pequeños, y ya decimos desde ahora que es si no el mejor, uno de los mejores disipadores del mercado para este sector.
  • Pros: Muy silencioso, Estructura robusta, Gran performance (incluso bajo OC), Instalación sencilla y muy segura, Estética, Gomas anti-vibraciones para ventilador, Adaptadores para regular las RPM del ventilador, Extras adicionales
  • Cons: Requiere desmontar zócalo de placa base
