Noctua NH-L9x65 Low Profile Heatsink Review Noctua NH-L9x65 Low Profile Heatsink Review
Noctua's low profile NH-L9x65 heatsink stands just 64mm tall and has a very compact footprint of only 95x95mm. The NH-L9x65 is designed to cool some fairly intensive Intel sockets, along with the full spectrum of AMD processors and APUs. Compact CPU coolers can be a little tricky to install, but Noctua long ago laid down the framework of an excellent motherboard mounting system,, so the NH-L9x65 is a breeze to work with.

Noctua NH-D15 Heatsink Review Noctua NH-D15 Heatsink Review
Weighing 1,320 grams with both fans installed, Noctua's NH-D15 heatsink is big. It stands 162mm tall and has a footprint of 151x161mm so prospective buyers will want to measure their case clearances first. It's six heat pipes are soldered to the nickel plated copper base plate and aluminum cooling fins; overall the fit and finish is top notch.

Noctua NH-L9i Low Profile Heatsink Review Noctua NH-L9i Low Profile Heatsink Review
Noctua's low profile NH-L9i heatsink stands 36mm tall so it will fit into the smallest of small form factor chassis. The NH-L9i is designed to cool Intel socket LGA115x (1155/1156/1150) processors only, which is a departure from the one-size-fits-all approach we're used to.

Noctua NH-C14 Lower Noise Heatsink Review Noctua NH-C14 Lower Noise Heatsink Review
UPDATED with new support bracket details. The Noctua NH-C14 is a big heatsink for sure, but remarkably by orienting the fans and aluminum fin stack in a top-down direction, Noctua keep the heatsinks' height to just 130mm. That's a far cry more compact than your typical 160mm tall tower heatsink, but that hasn't made the NH-C14 into a slouch.

Noctua NH-D14 Lower Noise Heatsink Review Noctua NH-D14 Lower Noise Heatsink Review
Weighing in at 1240 grams, the 161mm tall, 140x156mm square Noctua NH-D14 processor heatsink is large no matter how you size it up. This heatsink currently ranks near the top of Frostytech's Top 5 Heatsinks chart, and since we're comparing it against nearly 280 heatsinks, that should tell you something.

Noctua NH-C12P Heatsink Review Noctua NH-C12P Heatsink Review
Tower heatsinks may offer the best performance of any heatsink style, but many computer cases can't accommodate +140mm CPU cooler heights. 'Down exhaust' or 'impingment' heatsinks are so named because the fan blows downward.

Noctua NH-U9B Low Noise Heatsink Review Noctua NH-U9B Low Noise Heatsink Review
This time around, Noctua nickel plate all copper surfaces and bundle in the super quiet NF-B9 fan - and it's not your average vaneaxial fan either.

Noctua NH-U12P Low Noise Heatsink Review Noctua NH-U12P Low Noise Heatsink Review
Noctua's NH-U12P heatsink in one of the few models to breakthrough the low noise handicap and actually perform like a high performance heatsink.

Noctua NH-U9 Low Noise Heatsink Review Noctua NH-U9 Low Noise Heatsink Review
The 38 nickel-plated aluminum cooling fins are connected by four copper heat pipes to a copper base plate that pushes the overall weight to 570grams.

The large 155mm tall heatsink resembles a Soviet-era apartment block and optimized for use with large fans which can operate very quietly.
