Noctua NH-L9i CPU Cooler

The gang at Overclockers Club took the Noctua NH-L9i low-profile cooler out for a spin today. If you need a low-profile cooler for your Intel based CPU, this might be what you are looking for.

At stock speeds and voltages on the Core i7 2600K processor, Noctua's low profile NH-L9i was able to deliver a solid 13+% improvement of 10C, over the 73C load temperature delivered by the Intel box cooling solution. On top of that, it shaved 4C off the load temperature delivered by the the other low profile cooler in this comparison, the Phanteks TC90LS.
