Product Overview

Award-winning NH-U series

The NH-U9S stems from Noctua’s award-winning NH-U9 series. First introduced in 2005, the NH-U 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 NH-U12S and NH-U14S, the NH-U9S features a revised, slimmer layout. Whereas the NH-U9B SE2 was 120mm deep with its two stock fans, the NH-U9S is asymmetrically built and measures only 95mm with its single, more efficient NF-A9 fan, thus providing better performance and compatibility at the same time.


100% RAM Compatibility

With its 95x95mm footprint, the NH-U9S does not overhang the RAM slots on current Intel and most AMD mainboards. This gives the user full access to the memory modules and guarantees 100% compatibility with tall heatspreaders or optional memory fans. Please note: Some AMD mainboards violate the 96x114mm keep-out zone specified by AMD, so the NH-U9S can only be used with RAM modules of up to 30mm height on these boards. Please consult our compatibility list for details.


100% Compatibility with PCIe Cards on Mini-ITX

Many Intel LGA115x based mini-ITX 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 NH-U9S provides full compatibility with PCIe cards, be it on ATX, microATX or ITX.


NF-A9 Premium Fan

The highly optimised NF-A9 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 NH-U9S’ superior cooling performance.


PWM Support and Low-Noise Adaptor

The NF-A9 92mm fan supplied with the NH-U9S 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 Low-Noise Adaptor for even quieter operation.


Dual Fan Ready

The NH-U9S includes an extra set of fan mounting clips for users who want to achieve even better cooling performance by adding a second, optional NF-A9 PWM fan in order to create a push/pull setup. Using the y-cable supplied with the NF-A9 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, LGA1155, LGA1156), LGA2066, LGA2011 (LGA2011-0 & LGA2011-3) and AMD (AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2, FM2+), the SecuFirm2™ mounting included with the NH-U9S guarantees perfect contact pressure and maximum convenience on all current sockets.


Compatibility with Past and Future Sockets

Complying with the open SecuFirm™ standard, the NH-U9S can be made compatible with the older LGA1366 and LGA775 sockets using the optional NM-I3 mounting kit, which is provided by Noctua free of charge. If technically possible, Noctua will also provide upgrade kits for future sockets.


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.


6 Years Warranty

Noctua products are renowned for their impeccable quality and outstanding longevity. Like all Noctua fans, the supplied NF-A9 features an MTBF rating of more than 150.000 hours and the entire NH-U9S package comes with a full 6 years manufacturer’s warranty.

Date Issued: 1st Jul 2009

Intel’s been on a mission of late. That mission revolves around grouping and standardising key technologies under various banners that are designed to ensure hardware compatibility and consumer ease of use. We’ll take a closer look at three such technologies that fall under the headings of Centrino, Viiv, and vPro, respectively.

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Reviews
Noctua NH-U9S Ultra-Quiet Slim Multi CPU Cooler, 1x 92mm NF-A9 PWM Fan, 5x Copper Heatpipes, Aluminium Fins, Intel/AMD is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Compared to a Wraith Prism, this thing is SO much quieter, even with a second fan added. Barely audible most of the time and not that loud under full load.
Date published: 2020-05-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent noise level good quality Would like to see standard color options,.i.e. black, white, brown to give it a better quality rating. While it's optional to add a second fan.. there is no way it would fit.. also had expected to put fan closer to memory slots - but not even close, so put it right next to upper case fan - so had to take fan direction into account. Really happy with product - nothing to complain about.
Date published: 2020-05-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from brilliant kit decent price ,easy to fit and the option to fit a second fan is brilliant fantastic service from scan as usual
Date published: 2020-03-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from noctua nh-u9s i bought a noctua nh-u9s but really needs two fans.
Date published: 2018-02-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Cooler I installed this cooler on my first build, and it was relatively easy to install, just simply follow the instructions for either the AMD or Intel set. The heatsink came with one fan which kept my I5 6600k perfectly cool, however, I purchased another NF-A9 fan for a push-pull system so I can (hopefully) overclock my CPU in the future. The cooler is very quiet, and in comparison to the other fans in my case it's in-audible.
Date published: 2017-02-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome and quiet Ronseal for CPU`s, even in a horrible tight desktop case, combined with Noctua case fans my heat problem has been solved!
Date published: 2016-04-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed & easy to install cooler Well designed, well made & easy to install. Watercooling is no longer needed for modest/mainstream overclocks with modern CPUs; the Noctua NH-U9S keeps my Skylake 6600K satisfactorily cool under load at 4.4GHz. With PWM control from my Asus motherboard it is also pretty quiet. Not cheap but well worth the money.
Date published: 2016-02-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet monster ! Easy installation with great perfomance and the most important of all - its dead quiet
