Introduction

With the popularity of small form factor builds becoming more common place over recent years, sometimes finding the right CPU Cooler can be a challenge. With the tight spaces in small factor builds, it really takes a special cooler to do the job correctly. Today we will be looking at the Noctua NH-L9i CPU Cooler. From an aesthetics stand point, we see that Noctua remains true to its brand by sticking to its traditional colors with the tan and brown fans. While this cooler looks small compared to the traditional line up from Noctua, this small form factor CPU cooler has a unique look of its own.

From a performance stand point, we are going to see if it also holds true to Noctua’s past performance. While this cooler was not designed to support high overclocks, today we are still going to put it to the test and see what it can do.

The Noctua NH-L9i that we are looking at today was designed to be compatible with the Intel 1150/1155/1156 sockets only. Noctua does carry an AMD variation of this cooler, NH-L9a. Please visit Noctua’s website for further information.

Let’s take a look at the specifications and package.
