Noctua launches its all-black NH-L9a-AM4 Chromax for AMD’s Ryzen series processors

Noctua’s expanding its all-black Chromax lineup of CPU coolers, releasing an AM4 variant of its low-profile NH-L9a CPU cooler, a favourite amongst HTPC users and small-form-factor (SFF) enthusiasts.  

The NH-L9a-AM4 Chromax offers users the same basic formula as the original, offering users an ultra-short height of 37mm, quiet operation and the promise of 100% RAM and PCIe compatibility. This cooler is designed to not interfere with your case, DRAM, PCIe slots and other components within your compact PC builds, with this Chromax edition offering users some extra style with its all-black colouring. 

As a low-profile CPU cooler, Noctua doesn’t recommend using this cooler with AMD’s highest-end AM4 offerings, such as their Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 9 3950X. However, the company has recommended their NH-L9a-AM4 heatsink to users of AMD’s Ryzen 7 3700X, Ryzen 5 3600, Ryzen 5 3400G and Ryzen 3 3200G. That’s up to eight CPU cores on a cooler that’s less than 37mm tall. Not bad Noctua.

In the UK, Noctua’s NH-L9a-AM4 Chromax is available for £45.99 on Amazon UK. In the US, this heatsink costs $49.90 and in Europe this cooler costs €49.90. This heatsink will ship with Noctua’s high-performance NT-H1 thermal compound and a 6-year manufacturers warranty.
