Noctua has just introduced all-black versions of its popular NH-D9L and NH-L9x65 CPU coolers as part of the chromax.black line. These new models feature black fans and coated heatsinks, providing excellent cooling performance while offering a stylish appearance for Small Form Factor systems. These black versions are designed for users who prioritize aesthetics in addition to performance and quiet operation.
The NH-D9L chromax.black is compact (110mm height) and fits well in mini-ITX and Small Form Factor cases, ensuring compatibility with RAM and PCIe slots due to its 95x95mm footprint. The NH-L9x65 chromax.black strikes a balance between power and size, making it suitable for various motherboards while remaining convenient to work with due to its compact design.
Both coolers operate quietly, thanks to their optimized premium fans with automatic speed control via PWM. They also come with Noctua’s SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system for Intel and AMD, including new offset mounting bars for better performance on AM5 processors. Additionally, these models include Noctua’s renowned NT-H1 thermal compound and come with a 6-year manufacturer’s warranty, offering users a reliable cooling solution for space-restricted systems.
