The Noctua boxes a subtle and understated and really do have a feel of quality about them. Just look at the accessories box you get with the NH-D9L. Everything inside is laid out all neat and tidy and easy to find.
Now don't go thinking this is a massive twin stack cooler, because it isn't. That there fan in the middle is actullay just a 92mm unit, which puts the height of the entire shooting match at just 110mm. You'd also think a 2000rpm 92mm fan would whine like a Welsh farmer who's allergic to wool, but at just 22.8dB(A) it's actually not too bad.
The pipe ends aren't capped, which is a shame because we think it would help finish the elegant look of the cooler off.
We think this is one of the fastest and easiest coolers we're ever fitted, the SecuFirm2 system really is excellent, and the performance isn't bad either, although we did expect it to better the single stack NH-U9s it wasn't behind it by much.
