Noctua NH-U9DX i4 Features
|Award-Winning NH-U Series
The NH-U9DX i4 is based on the latest version of Noctua's award-winning NH-U9 coolers. First introduced in 2005, the NH-U series has become a standard choice for premium quality quiet CPU coolers and won more than 400 awards and recommendations from leading international hardware websites and magazines.
Sporting four heatpipes, a surface area of more than 3800cm² and two premium grade 92mm fans, the NH-U9DX i4 provides a significant upgrade in quiet cooling performance compared to common 2U solutions. At the same time, its 125mm height makes it fully compatible with standard 4U cases.
|2x NF-B9 92mm Premium Fan
The award-winning NF-B9 92mm premium fan features Noctua's renowned SSO bearing as well as advanced aerodynamic optimizations such as Bevelled Blade Tips and Vortex-Control Notches. In order to achieve its superb quiet cooling capability, the NH-U9DX i4 comes equipped with two NF-B9 fans in a push/pull setup.
|PWM support and Low-Noise Adaptor
The NF-B9 92mm fans supplied with the NH-U9DX i4 support PWM for convenient automatic speed control through the mainboard. In addition, the maximum fan speed can be reduced from 1600 to 1300rpm using the supplied Low-Noise Adaptors for even quieter operation.
|SecuFirm2 Mounting System
Noctua's SecuFirm2 mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety and ease of use. Supporting Intel's LGA2011 (both Square and Narrow ILM), LGA1356 and LGA1366 Xeon platforms, the SecuFirm2 mounting included with the NH-U12DX i4 guarantees perfect contact pressure and maximum convenience on all 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-B9 models feature an MTBF rating of more than 150.000 hours and the entire NH-U9DX i4 package comes with a full 6 years manufacturer's warranty.

- The DX models (NH-U12DX i4, NH-U9DX i4, NH-U12DX 1366, NH-U9DX 1366) can only be used on mainboards that have a backplate with screw threads for CPU cooler installation (such as the Intel reference backplate for Xeon 5500). The cooler is thus incompatible with Xeon 3500 and Core i7 mainboards that don't have such a backplate. Please choose our normal retail models with LGA1366 support (or NM-I3 kit) for these mainboards.
- There are two different types of ILM (Independent Loading Mechanism) for Intel's LGA2011 based Xeon CPUs: Square ILM with 80x80mm hole spacing and Narrow ILM with 56x94mm hole spacing. The mounting system of the NH-U12DX i4/NH-U9DX i4 is fully compatible with both types.
