Continuing with the legacy of the award-winning Noctua NH-U9 series, the NH-U9S is an excellent and quiet CPU heatsink available in the classic 9 cm size. Its asymmetric design with 5 heatpipes not only provides better cooling performance than the previous generation, but also improves compatibility:
Thanks to its 95 x 95 mm dimensions, the NH-U9S clears the RAM and PCIe slots on all Intel motherboards and most AMDs, including µATX and ITX. Thanks to its 125 mm height, the NH-U9S is a highly versatile solution with excellent compatibility of box, RAM and PCIe. The excellent NF-A9 fan that is included allows automatic speed control through the PWM that ensures surprisingly quiet operation. In addition, an optional second NF-A9 fan can be added to improve performance in dual fan mode. Equipped with the reliable and professional SecuFirm2 ™ multisocket mounting system, Noctua's acclaimed NT-H1 thermal compound and the manufacturer's 6-year warranty, the NH-U9S is without a doubt the perfect choice.
Award-winning NH-U series
The NH-U9S belongs to the award-winning NH-U9 series of Noctua. Since its launch in 2005, the NH-U series has become the standard choice of high-quality CPU silent heatsinks and has won more than 800 awards and recommendations from leading international websites and magazines.
S version with better compatibility
Like its older brothers NH-U12S and NH-U14S, the NH-U9S has a revised and finer design: While the NH-U9B SE2 had a depth of 120 mm due to its two fans, the NH-U9S It has been built asymmetrically and measures only 95 mm, as it has a unique and more efficient NF-A9 fan, which allows it to offer better performance and compatibility.
100% RAM compatibility
Thanks to its dimensions of 95 x 95 mm, the NH-U9S does not protrude above the RAM slots in the current Intel motherboards and in most AMD. All this allows the user to have full access to the memory modules and guarantees 100% compatibility with high thermal diffusers or optional memory fans. *
100% compatibility with PCIe cards in mini-ITX
Many Intel-LGA115x-based mini-ITX motherboards feature PCIe slots that are located to the right of the 95 x 95 mm socket area. While larger heatsinks that exceed this area can block the PCIe slot, the NH-U9S, thanks to its dimensions of 95 x 95 mm, provides full compatibility with PCIe cards, in ATX, microATX or ITX.
NF-A15 High quality NF-A9 fan
The highly optimized NF-A9 fan features the Noctua AAO frame, as well as sophisticated aerodynamic design measures such as the Flow Acceleration Channels, which allow to improve the known efficiency of the previous 92 mm Noctua models and obtain superior cooling performance of the NH-U9S. button
PWM support and adapter for noise reduction
The 92mm NF-A9 fan of the NH-U9S includes PWM support for convenient automatic speed control through the motherboard. In addition, the maximum fan speed can be reduced from 2000 to 1550 rpm and achieve quieter operation when using the Adapter for noise reduction.
Double fan (optional)
The NH-U9S includes an additional set of fan mounting clips so that users who want greater cooling performance can add a second NF-A9 PWM to create a push / pull configuration. Using the Y-shaped cable, which is included with an NF-A9 PWM fan, both fans can be connected to a single CPU fan connector.
SecuFirm2 ™ mounting system
Noctua SecuFirm2 ™ mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety and easy handling. Being compatible with the LGA115x (LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156), LGA2011 (LGA2011-0 & LGA2011-3) of Intel and the AM2 +, AM3, AM3 +, FM1, FM2, FM2 + of AMD, the assembly of SecuFirm2 ™ included with the NH-U9S guarantees perfect contact pressure and maximum comfort in all sockets.
Compatibility with old and new sockets
By complying with SecuFirm2 ™ standards, the NH-U9S can be compatible with older LGA1366 and LGA775 sockets, by using the optional NM-I3 mounting kit that Noctua offers for free. If technically possible, Noctua will also provide the update kits for the new sockets.
NF-A15 Thermal Compound NT-H1
Having received more than 100 awards and recommendations from specialized journalists around the world, the Noctua NT-H1 is a professional and proven quality thermal solution that provides minimal thermal resistance, ease of use and outstanding reliability
