Compact and quiet NH-U9B

By Steve Dougherty from Feb 25, 2008 @ 18:19 CST

The recently introduced NH-U12P CPU cooler from Noctua now has a little brother. Dubbed the NH-U9B this cooler is slightly more compact in design, using Noctua's also recently announced NF-B9 92mm fan. The heatsink has a nickel-plated finish and sports four dual heat pipes; Noctua kept the cooler quiet and compact with HTPC/small case users in mind.

The NH-U9B is now available at an RRP of EUR 46.90 / USD $54.90. You can find more information about the NH-U9B within the official PR here and also over at Noctua's website folks.

Vienna, February 25th, 2008 - Three months after the introduction of the NH-U12P, which has already received more than 30 awards and recommendations from leading international websites and magazines, Noctua released today the newest version of its more compact NH-U9 series: The new NH-U9B uses the recently announced NF-B9 92mm fan and, just like its big brother NH-U12P, will be shipped with Noctua's much acclaimed NT-H1 thermal compound.

"The new NF-B9 fan enables us to replace now the popular NH-U9F with a new, even further improved model", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "The NH-U9B is a worthy little brother for the highly acclaimed NH-U12P: Perfect for those looking for a compact, powerful and quiet premium quality cooler."
