Noctua NH-D9L Review

So let’s review an alternative cooling system Noctua NH-D9L which is in many ways similar to the previously released Noctua NH-U9S. It is at least attractive because it is a miniature copy of Noctua NH-D15. But the question is: why was it needed to release two models with similar parameters and effectiveness in the 92mm fan cooler segment, which is not the most popular one.


Equipment

Packaging is on the highest level traditional for Noctua. All the necessary information is presented on the box sides. The following components are included in addition to a radiator and a fan:

• reinforcement plate for Intel LGA115h sockets; • mounting studs for Intel LGA2011 and LGA 2011-3 sockets; • mounting feet and plastic stands for the Intel sockets; • mounting feet, plastic stands and screws for the AMD sockets; • knurled nuts to secure the feet on the Intel sockets; • additional brackets for mounting the second fan; • silicone gaskets for fans; • crosshead …

Cooler Master N300 and N500: PC Cases of Medium Price Tier

Cooler Master announces a release of two new PC cases of mid-tower form-factor. Codenamed N300 and N500, the couple belongs to the medium price tier products and is differentiated by a laconic design combined with a thoughtfully elaborated cooling. Each model features a totally black coating and grid-like frontal panel. In retail market these cases will be offered in two framework variations: with blind side panels and with a large transparent window on one of the panels.



Both models are thought to support motherboards of standard ATX and micro-ATX dimensional type. The most notable peculiarity is the cooling system that primarily consists of two pre-installed 120 mm fans (in the frontal and rear parts of the case); however, this pair might be easily supplemented by seven (with blind construction) or five (with windowed construction) fans more. Moreover, there is a feasibility of incorporating a liquid-cooling system. Some key specifications of both novices are featured below.
