Noctua's DX line of coolers has become a default choice in high performance quiet cooling solutions for Intel Xeon CPUs. The latest i4 revision supports LGA2011 (both Square ILM and Narrow ILM), LGA1356 and LGA1366 based Xeon platforms and the 9cm model NH-U9DX i4 comes equipped with two of Noctua’s award-winning NF-B9 premium fans with PWM for automatic speed control. Standing 125mm tall, the NH-U9DX i4 combines outstanding quiet cooling efficiency with full 4U compatibility. Fitted with the professional SecuFirm2™ mounting system and bundled with Noctua's industrial-grade NT-H1 thermal compound, the NH-U9DX i4 forms a complete premium quality package for quietly cooling Xeon based workstations and servers.
Award-winning NH-U series
The NH-U9DX i4 is based on the latest version of Noctua's award-winning NH-U9 coolers. First introduced in 2005, the NH-U series has become a standard choice for premium quality quiet CPU coolers and won more than 400 awards and recommendations from leading international hardware websites and magazines.
Sporting four heatpipes, a surface area of more than 3800cm² and two premium grade 92mm fans, the NH-U9DX i4 provides a significant upgrade in quiet cooling performance compared to common 2U solutions. At the same time, its 125mm height makes it fully compatible with standard 4U cases.
2x NF-B9 92mm Premium Fan
The award-winning NF-B9 92mm premium fan features Noctua's renowned SSO bearing as well as advanced aerodynamic optimisations such as Bevelled Blade Tips and Vortex-Control Notches. In order to achieve its superb quiet cooling capability, the NH-U9DX i4 comes equipped with two NF-B9 fans in a push/pull setup.
PWM support and Low-Noise Adaptor
The NF-B9 92mm fans supplied with the NH-U9DX i4 support PWM for convenient automatic speed control through the motherboard. In addition, the maximum fan speed can be reduced from 1600 to 1300rpm using the supplied Low-Noise Adaptors for even quieter operation.
SecuFirm2™ mounting system
Noctua's SecuFirm2™ mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety and ease of use. Supporting Intel's LGA2011 (both Square and Narrow ILM), LGA2066, LGA1356 and LGA1366 Xeon platforms, the SecuFirm2™ mounting included with the NH-U9DX i4 guarantees perfect contact pressure and maximum convenience on all sockets.
