    Looks stunning, runs super quiet and no ram clearance issues on mini itx. I think the Noctua colors are nice and the whole product is very good quality. this cooler is really designed to function. I would buy another and recommend this cooler to anyone.

    I was going to either choose this or NH L9I, it was a hard decision but I chose this since a few people favored this.

    Noctua makes top-notch coolers and the U9S is no exception. It cools phenomenally well for a 95mm tower, even on a silent fan curve. The renowned SecuFirm 2 mounting system is still awesome: easy to install, very strong and secure, and forward-compatible. And the 6-year warranty is unbeatable. As anyone will tell you, Noctua's reputation is well-deserved.

    I was looking at this cooler and the NH C14S but decided the latter was too big and I wasn't sure about the top down air flow in a case with fans which flow from front to back.

    I wanted a fan cooler so this was the best Noctua one that would fit sue to the 140mm max. height.

    It works well and is quiet although I haven't over clocked yet.

    For the size, this little thing is amazing! I had actually switched to the giant NH-C14S and changed back because this little guy cools better! My 5830k @ 4.1GHz idles at 32°C and 75°C under 100% load from stress test.

    My temps never go above 70 with this thing. Kind of ugly looking, but it gets the job done in an excellent and quiet manner.

    It's funny looking due to the small size, but it's a workhorse. One of the best small tower coolers according to multiple reviews and I have no reason to disagree. It's also strangely quiet, considering the small fan size.

    My first experience with a 3rd Party CPU cooler. Install was a breeze and this thing looks magical in the case. It does it's job and that's all you can ask of a CPU cooler.

    from completed build NanoS - First ITX Build

    Originally this build was built in a Thermaltake Core V1 chassis and due to the layout of that case, I did not have much clearance for a CPU Cooler, under 140mm. This cooler is 125mm tall. I found that this cooler was probably one of the best I could fit in the space that I had. It moves a decent amount of air thanks to the NF-A9 fans. They are super quiet and personally I don't mind the colors since I know that the colors mean a quality product. I purchased a second fan to run a push/pull configuration to try to lower the temps even more. It lowered the temps an additional 2-3 degrees.
