Noctua NH-L9x65 SE-AM4 CPU Cooler Review

Noctua, well known highest quality computer cooling solution manufacturer has released three coolers for new AMD Ryzen platform based on AM4 socket. We have received all three coolers and you will be able to see them all in next couple of days.

First to present is NH-L9x65 SE-AM4. You would think we will show cooler which is offering the highest performance. We have decided to start from the compact version but with still good specification. I guess that Intel users already know NH-L9x65 which is available for some time. Now additional mounting kit is spreading compatibility to AM4 socket which is the most interesting in last weeks.

Here is our small but efficient cooler. I guess it will be interesting product to all users who wish to have 8 core processor but still wish to use smaller form factor. I haven’t seen any competition on the market to Noctua NH-L9x65 but for sure something will appear in next weeks or months.

Award-winning NH-L9x65 cooler

Tens of thousands of enthusiast users all over the world swear by the NH-L9x65’s quality and performance. Recommended by more than 100 international hardware websites and magazines, it is renowned for being one of the best sub-70mm low-profile heatsinks on the market.
 
Dedicated special edition for AM4

Dedicated special edition for AM4

The NH-L9x65 SE-AM4 brings the NH-L9x65’s signature quiet cooling performance to AMD’s new AM4 platform. With its highly compact design and low profile, it is ideal for cooling lower TDP AM4 CPUs in HTPC or Small Form Factor cases.
 
65mm low profile

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.
 
100% RAM compatibility

100% RAM compatibility

Being 95mm wide, the NH-L9x65 SE-AM4 complies with the AMD AM4 socket’s 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.
 
100% compatibility with PCIe cards on mini-ITX

100% compatibility with PCIe cards on mini-ITX

Many mini-ITX mainboards have the PCIe slot sitting close to the socket zone. While larger coolers with 120mm or 140mm fans that exceed this zone may block the PCIe slot, the compact NH-L9x65 provides full compatibility with PCIe cards.
 
Easy access to near-socket connectors

Easy access to near-socket connectors

Many low-profile coolers use larger fans or heatsinks in order to achieve sufficient cooling performance, but by 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 compact footprint, the NH-L9x65 provides easy access to all connectors and components.
 
NF-A9x14 PWM premium fan

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.
 
Low-Noise Adaptor

Low-Noise Adaptor

Allowing to reduce the maximum speed of the NF-A9x14 fan from 2500 to 1800rpm, the included (L.N.A.) makes it possible to achieve near-silent setups using CPUs with up to 65W TDP.
 
SecuFirm2™ mounting system for AM4

SecuFirm2™ mounting system for AM4

Noctua’s SecuFirm2™ mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety and ease of use. In order to achieve the best compatibility and to match the airflow path inside the case, the SecuFirm2™ mounting for AM4 makes it possible to install the cooler either in standard orientation or turned by 90°.*
 
NT-H1 thermal compound
