Appreciate the cooling products of the Austrian Noctoa Company but do not tolerate the brown and beige tones that typically characterize them? Now there is an alternative - even for the most compact Mini-ITX systems
Home Small Form Factor (SFF) systems never stop evolving and refining, and we enjoy finding out how much processing power can be crammed into single-liter boxes.
Coolers like the Noctua NH-L9 are the ones that help break the frequent highs in the category, thanks to surprisingly good cooling capabilities in a highly compact product with only 37 millimeters in height on the Z axis that allows advanced modern processors to be purchased in very narrow enclosures - And now it can be selected while debating between two different shades, both in a configuration tailored to Intel's processors and in a configuration for processors AMD.
Beige-tinted salads and prominent, teal colored LEDs? This cooling can be the ultimate solution - especially if you are challenged by the width of the chassis
After the Intel-designed NH-L9i model (in LGA1156, LGA 1155, and LGA1151 residences) won the all-black Chromax Black instead of the more common shades in Noctoa's products - the NH-L9a-designed processor AMD Modern AM4 brackets benefit from similar care - with no bad price tag of $ 50 at all and the same capabilities Cooling Are recognized and valued.
The company declares that the cooling is optimized for use with Processors Powerful as the Ryzen 7 3800X and the Ryzen 7 3700X - but models like the Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 9 3950X may have difficulty reaching their maximum operating frequencies due to limited cooling capabilities compared to solutions Cooling More massive
So if you don't like the shades of gray that this manufacturer practices to "decorate" its refrigeration products, and prefer something more uniform, classic and darker - you now have a full choice, and all that's left is to decide on the processor identity that will be beneath this metallic body.
