Please note that being a dedicated special edition for AM4, the NH-L9x65 SE-AM4 comes with AM4 mounting hardware only, and that for this cooler, Noctua cannot provide free mounting kits for other current sockets such as LGA115x or LGA2011. For the NH- L9x65 SE-AM4, these mounting kits can only be purchased in retail or online shops (NM-i115x for LGA115x and NM-I2011 for LGA2011). Future mounting upgrades will be provided free of charge as usual if technically possible. Caution: The NH-L9x65 is a highly compact low-profile quiet cooler designed for use in small form factor cases and HTPC environments. While it provides first-rate performance in its class, it is not suitable for overclocking and should be used with care on CPUs with more than 95W TDP (Thermal Design Power). Please consult our TDP guidelines to find out whether the NH-L9x65 is recommended for your CPU.

Award-winning NH-L9x65 cooler

Award-winning NH-L9x65 cooler

Tens of thousands of enthusiast users all over the world swear by the NH-L9x65’s quality and performance. Recommended by more than 100 international hardware websites and magazines, it is renowned for being one of the best sub-70mm low-profile heatsinks on the market.
 
Dedicated special edition for AM4

Dedicated special edition for AM4

The NH-L9x65 SE-AM4 brings the NH-L9x65’s signature quiet cooling performance to AMD’s new AM4 platform. With its highly compact design and low profile, it is ideal for cooling lower TDP AM4 CPUs in HTPC or Small Form Factor cases.
 
65mm low profile

65mm low profile

Due to its compact heatsink and the 14mm thin NF-A9x14 low profile fan, the NH-L9x65 stands only 65mm tall (the same height as low-profile expansion cards), which makes it ideal for use in compact HTPCs or Small Form Factor cases that offer limited clearance for CPU coolers.
 
100% RAM compatibility

100% RAM compatibility

Being 95mm wide, the NH-L9x65 SE-AM4 complies with the AMD AM4 socket’s keep-out zone. This means that it won’t cause issues with chipset coolers and doesn’t overhang the RAM slots, making it fully compatible with tall memory modules.
 
100% compatibility with PCIe cards on mini-ITX

100% compatibility with PCIe cards on mini-ITX

Many mini-ITX mainboards have the PCIe slot sitting close to the socket zone. While larger coolers with 120mm or 140mm fans that exceed this zone may block the PCIe slot, the compact NH-L9x65 provides full compatibility with PCIe cards.
 
Easy access to near-socket connectors

Easy access to near-socket connectors

Many low-profile coolers use larger fans or heatsinks in order to achieve sufficient cooling performance, but by protruding over the socket zone, they make it difficult or even impossible to reach near-socket connectors on tightly packed ITX mainboards. Thanks to its compact footprint, the NH-L9x65 provides easy access to all connectors and components.
 
NF-A9x14 PWM premium fan

NF-A9x14 PWM premium fan

The highly optimised NF-A9x14 premium fan features Noctua's proprietary AAO frame as well as sophisticated aerodynamic design measures. Supporting PWM for fully automatic speed control, the NF-A9x14 allows the NH-L9x65 to stay remarkably quiet.
 
Low-Noise Adaptor

Low-Noise Adaptor

Allowing to reduce the maximum speed of the NF-A9x14 fan from 2500 to 1800rpm, the included (L.N.A.) makes it possible to achieve near-silent setups using CPUs with up to 65W TDP.
 
SecuFirm2™ mounting system for AM4

SecuFirm2™ mounting system for AM4

Noctua’s SecuFirm2™ mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety and ease of use. In order to achieve the best compatibility and to match the airflow path inside the case, the SecuFirm2™ mounting for AM4 makes it possible to install the cooler either in standard orientation or turned by 90°.*
 
NT-H1 thermal compound

NT-H1 thermal compound

Having received more than 100 awards and recommendations from hardware journalists around the world, Noctua's NT-H1 is a proven professional grade TIM solution that provides minimum thermal resistance, excellent ease of use and outstanding reliability.
