Rated 5 out of 5 by Gaz492 Amazing
For such a low profile cooler, the performance is outstanding, took my cpu temps from around 67c-75c to a steady 40c. Would recommend this product

Using this with the low noise adaptor so can't comment on what it's like without it but I'm using it on a I3 2100 in a low noise media server. Keeps the cpu nice and cool and is not audible at all, feels solid and is nicely constructed. Comes with a decent tube of thermal compound. Would definitely recommend if you want something low profile and quiet with decent cooling potential.

Rated 5 out of 5 by psroberts Geat quality, quiet
Very quiet. Barely audible in a mini PC build almost all of the time; at high load it's a smooth and still surprisingly quiet.

Used this in a low profile PC case on an i5-6600K and it's pretty much silent. Sat there gob-smacked that even under a reasonable load I couldn't hear it at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigM Excellent CPU cooler!
Very well packaged, and looks like a quality product as usual. I think Noctua have got it right in terms of installing, it's so easy to fit.
Performance wise, it's very good at keeping the CPU cool. I have my i74790k running at 4.4ghz, and temps were around 59c while under a prime 95 stress test. This actually done better than my Corsair H105 water cooler!
Noise levels are good - very quiet, just a very low hum. I wear headphones, so I don't really hear any noises that interfere.
One small niggle though, even though I have low profile ram installed, I still needed to lift the front fan up a bit to clear the ram. It only needed to be lifted by about 10mm, so it's not a big deal.
A lovely CPU cooler. I'm more happy about using this, than going back to water cooling.
