Noctua releases NH-L9x65 LP CPU Cooler and NF-A6x25 PWM Fan

Keeping ITX based system for either gaming or HTPCs in mind, Noctua released a new Low-Profile CPU cooler NH-L9x65 and a new 60mm PWM NH-A6x25 CPU cooler.

The fan that’s included with the NH-L9x65 is the 14mm thin NF-A9x14 PWM fan, and in total it’s 65mm tall. In addition, it includes two heatpipes provide better cooling than its smaller counterparts (like Noctua NH-L9i that we reviewed a long time ago along with other LP Coolers). Along with the cooler and the PWM fan, an LNA, NT-H1 thermal paste, SecuFirm2 mounting kit and its metal logo case badge is provided.


The new Noctua NF-A6x25 fan uses their in-house NE-FD1 IC that provides fully automatic speed control via the 4-pin headers. It also uses its SSO2 bearing. Its dimensions are 60x60x 25mm and have RPM rated up to 3000RPM and 2300 RPM using it’s Low Noise adapter.

For both units, Noctua provides 6 years warranty period.
