Noctua NH-L9x65 Low Profile CPU Cooler Review

Noctua NH-L9x65 Low Profile CPU Cooler Review Noctua’s NH-L9x65 is the “taller” low profile CPU cooler designed for improved thermal performance compared to its predecessor, the NH-L9 series.

Noctua NH-C14S CPU Cooler Review

Noctua NH-C14S CPU Cooler Review The transformation of the NH-C14 to the NH-C14S was a very slight one.
