Noctua announces three new CPU coolers
The famous CPU cooler maker Noctua has announced three new chip coolers – the NH-U9S, NH-D9L and NH-D9DX i4 3U. Despite carrying different brand names all three coolers use the company’s 92 mm NF-A9 PWM cooling fan.
We’ll start with the cooler that has the longest name – the NH-D9DX i4 3U. The device targets 3U platforms, measures 110 x 95 x 95 mm and weighs 531 grams. As with many other coolers the NH-D9DX i4 3U is a tower-type device that has two heat sinks; the cooling fan sits in between. The fan spins at 400-2000 rpm and pushes up to 46.4 CFM of air at noise levels that reach 22.8 dBa. The new Noctua cooler supports the Intel LGA 2011 and LGA 1366 platforms. The NH-D9DX i4 3U costs USD 60.
The second cooler is the NH-D9L – it has the same form factor as the first one and uses the same cooling fan, which means that the CFM and the noise levels are the same. This one is compatible with all Intel LGA 2011, LGA 1156, LGA 1155 and LGA 1150 processors and all AMD AM2(+), AM3(+), FM1, FM2 and FM2+ chips and sells for USD 57.
The last NH-U9S cooler is a bit different – it supports all processors that the NH-D9L does but has just three heat pipes and the heat sink is not divided in two. Despite this the CPU cooler measures 125 x 95 x 95 mm and weighs 618 grams. The NH-U9S sells for USD 60.
All new Noctua coolers come with a 6-year warranty.
