Awardwinning NHU series
The NHU9S stems from Noctua?s awardwinning NHU9 series. First introduced in 2005 the NHU series has become a standard choice for premium quality quiet CPU coolers and won more than 800 awards and recommendations from leading international hardware websites and magazines.
S version with better compatibility
Like its bigger brothers NHU12S and NHU14S the NHU9S features a revised slimmer layout: Whereas the NHU9B SE2 was 120mm deep with its two stock fans the NHU9S is asymmetrically built and measures only 95mm with its single more efficient NFA9 fan thus providing better performance and compatibility at the same time.
100% compatibility with PCIe cards on miniITX
Many Intel LGA115x based miniITX mainboards have the PCIe slot sitting right next to the 95x95mm socket zone. While larger coolers that exceed this zone are likely to block the PCIe slot the 95x95xmm sized NHU9S provides full compatibility with PCIe cards be it on ATX microATX or ITX.
NFA9 premium fan
The highly optimised NFA9 premium fan features Noctua?s proprietary AAO frame as well as sophisticated aerodynamic design measures such as Flow Acceleration Channels which allows it to further improve the renowned efficiency of Noctua?s previous 92mm models and contributes to the NHU9S?s superior cooling performance.
Dual fan ready
The NHU9S includes an extra set of fan mounting clips for users who want to achieve even better cooling performance by adding a second optional NFA9 PWM fan in order to create a push/pull setup. Using the ycable supplied with the NFA9 PWM retail fan both fans can be connected to one CPU fan header.
SecuFirm2 mounting system
Noctua's SecuFirm2 mounting systems have become synonymous with quality safety and ease of use. Supporting Intel LGA115x LGA1150 LGA1151 LGA1155 LGA1156 LGA2011 and AMD AM3+ AM2+ FM1 FM2+ the SecuFirm2? mounting included with the NHU9S guarantees perfect contact pressure and maximum convenience on all current sockets.
PWM support and LowNoise Adaptor
The NFA9 92mm fan supplied with the NHU9S supports PWM for convenient automatic speed control through the mainboard. In addition the maximum fan speed can be reduced from 2000 to 1550rpm using the supplied LowNoise Adaptor for even quieter operation.
