Noctua NH-U9B CPU Cooler - Optional NF-B9 Fan

Today we mount a sample from Noctua to our T.E.C.C. test system and see what the NH-U9B can do against the rest.

Optional NF-B9 Fan

As I mentioned in the very beginning, Noctua had included an optional fan in their care package they had shipped to my door. This fan is the NF-B9, 92mm fan. They have kept with the same packaging as the NH-U9B and this side displays the features and size of the included fan.

The back of the box opens like a book to reveal the science behind the fan and its design, as well as again showing off those awards. To the very right is an explanation of how the inline, resister having fan connectors are "capped off" at certain fan speeds when used.

Removing the plastic inner package from the cardboard box reveals you do get a lot more than just a fan from Noctua. They include four, anti-vibration case mounts found at the left. The third one down is broken, but I did that myself just prior to taking this image. Also at the bottom are four regular screws if you choose to use those instead, alongside a 4-pin to 3-pin converter. This package also includes two more connectors for the fan that have resistors inline.

This is just a better view of the hardware I described above, all laid out nice and neat.

I felt it was only fitting to end this section with an image of the dual fan configuration mounted to the NH-U9B.
