    Noctua NH-L9I review

    8  

    After all the huge tower fans we've looked at recently, it makes a refreshing change to be playing with something at the other end of the spectrum.

    Noctua NH-D14 review

    10  

    One look at the Austrian-designed Noctua and you know it means business. For a start, it's something of a giant, featuring two fin stacks and two fans. The quality of engineering is superb, right through to the colour instructions. Even the thermal paste is 'award-winning' thermal paste. It looks the business, in a no-nonsense way. Only the hospital beige-coloured fans spoil the party here. Compared to the design excesses of Fenrir, Yasya and Thor's Hammer it looks positively clinical.

    Noctua NH-U12 CPU Heatpipe review

    8  

    The NH-U9 is a great example of a heatsink that can be used for eitherefficiency or quiet computing. It's made of intersecting fins ofaluminium, which afford a maximum surface area for heat loss.
