Having received more than 100 awards and recommendations from international hardware websites and magazines, Noctua’s compact NH-L9x65 has become a standard choice among 65mm tall low-profile coolers. The SE-AM4 version is a dedicated special edition for AMD’s AM4 (Ryzen) platform featuring the latest SecuFirm2 mounting system for AM4. Topped off with the renowned quiet NF-A9x14 PWM 92mm fan and Noctua’s proven NT-H1 thermal compound, the NH-L9x65 SE-AM4 forms a complete premium-quality solution for AM4-based ITX builds and HTPC systems.
65mm low profile
Due to its compact heatsink and the 14mm thin NF-A9x14 low profile fan, the NH-L9x65 stands only 65mm tall (the same height as low-profile expansion cards), which makes it ideal for use in compact HTPCs or Small Form Factor cases that offer limited clearance for CPU coolers.
100% RAM compatibility
Being 95mm wide, the NH-L9x65 SE-AM4 complies with the AMD AM4 socket’s keep-out zone. This means that it won’t cause issues with chipset coolers and doesn’t overhang the RAM slots, making it fully compatible with tall memory modules.
100% compatibility with PCIe cards on mini-ITX
Many mini-ITX mainboards have the PCIe slot sitting close to the socket zone. While larger coolers with 120mm or 140mm fans that exceed this zone may block the PCIe slot, the compact NH-L9x65 provides full compatibility with PCIe cards.
SecuFirm2 mounting system for AM4
Noctua’s SecuFirm2 mounting systems have become synonymous with quality, safety and ease of use. In order to achieve the best compatibility and to match the airflow path inside the case, the SecuFirm2 mounting for AM4 makes it possible to install the cooler either in standard orientation or turned by 90°.

Copper (base and heat-pipes), aluminium (cooling fins), soldered joints & nickel plating
The NH-L9x65 is a highly compact low-profile quiet cooler designed for use in small form factor cases and HTPC environments. While it provides first-rate performance in its class, it is not suitable for overclocking and should be used with care on CPUs with more than 95W TDP (Thermal Design Power).

Fitting is fairly easy, requiring that you remove the OEM AM4 mount and attaching the Noctua SecureFirm2 mounts in the orientation you want. You do need a good bit of pressure to then secure the cooler itself to the SF2 mount, but as long as you take your time and watch what you're doing, you'll be fine.
Noise from this, with the supplied fan is virtually nil in the system I'm running, but you are able to put a drop down cable inline to reduce the speeds of the fan, although this will reduce cooling.
Although it's been a while since I had a Noctua cooler, I'm glad I bought this one and remembered straight away just how good they are.
It's a good design, bit tricky to install with the AM4 brackets as you need to either take the fan off or go through the fan blades to secure the cooler down.
A shame as I've never had issues with Noctua fans before
