65mm low profile
Due to its compact heatsink and the 14mm thin NF-A9x14 low profile fan, the NH-L9x65 stands only 65mm tall (the same height as low-profile expansion cards), which makes it ideal for use in compact HTPCs or Small Form Factor cases that offer limited clearance for CPU coolers.
NH-L9x65 Features 100% RAM compatibility on Intel platforms
The NH-L9x65 has a 95x95mm footprint that complies exactly to the Intel LGA115x socket keep-out zone.
This means that it won’t cause issues with chipset coolers and doesn’t overhang the RAM slots, making it fully compatible with tall memory modules.
NH-L9x65 Features 100% compatibility with PCIe cards on ITX
Many Intel LGA115x based mini-ITX mainboards have the PCIe slot sitting close to the 95x95mm socket zone.
While larger coolers that exceed this zone may block the PCIe slot, the 95x95xmm sized NH-L9i provides full compatibility with PCIe cards.
NH-L9x65 Features Easy access to near-socket connectors
Many low-profile coolers use larger fans or heatsinks in order to achieve sufficient cooling performance, but protruding over the socket zone, they make it difficult or even impossible to reach near-socket connectors on tightly packed ITX mainboards. Thanks to its 95x95mm footprint, the NH-L9x65 provides easy access to all connectors and components.
NF-A9x14 NF-A9x14 PWM premium fan
The highly optimised NF-A9x14 premium fan features Noctua’s proprietary AAO frame as well as sophisticated aerodynamic design measures.
Supporting PWM for fully automatic speed control, the NF-A9x14 allows the NH-L9x65 to stay remarkably quiet. button
NH-L9x65 Features Low-Noise Adaptor
Allowing to reduce the maximum speed of the NF-A9x14 fan from 2500 to 1800rpm, the included Low-Noise Adaptor (L.N.A.) makes it possible to achieve near-silent setups using CPUs with up to 65W TDP.
NH-L9x65 Features SecuFirm2™ mounting system
Noctua’s SecuFirm2™ mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety and ease of use.
Supporting Intel LGA115x (LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156), LGA2011 and AMD (AM3(+), AM2(+), FM1, FM2(+)), the SecuFirm2™ mounting included with the NH-L9x65 guarantees perfect contact pressure and maximum convenience on all current sockets.
NH-L9x65 Features Compatibility with past and future sockets
Complying with the open SecuFirm™ standard, the NH-L9x65 can be made compatible with the older LGA1366 and LGA775 sockets using the optional NM-I3 mounting kit, which is provided by Noctua free of charge.
If technically possible, Noctua will also provide upgrade kits for future sockets.
NF-A15 NT-H1 thermal compound
Having received more than 100 awards and recommendations from hardware journalists around the world, Noctua’s NT-H1 is a proven professional grade TIM solution that provides minimum thermal resistance, excellent ease of use and outstanding reliability. button
