Noctua NH-L9x65 Review
WHAT WE LIKED:Solid performance, Excellent Quality, Silent Operation, Wide compatibility, Easy install
WHAT WE DISLIKED:Colors aren't for everyone, Pretty high price
Noctua is renowned for their silent performance, but lately we’ve been seeing more products that fit into the small form-factor HTPC market over the ultra-enthusiasts monster performance market. This no doubt indicates a shift in less desire for the newest high end products and more demand for parts that “get the job done.” The NH-L9x65 is one such product. Here, Noctua is introducing a very nice, low-profile CPU cooler that fits the bill entirely for keeping an ITX style computer cool in it’s constrained case space. We know Noctua can make great coolers, but now we’ll see how well this small cooler stacks up. We’ll be finding out soon enough but before we start taking a closer look, let’s pause for a brief statement about who Noctua is and what they are passionate about.
