Noctua has released updated versions of its NH-L9i and NH-L9i Chromax Black low-profile CPU coolers. These coolers often find their way into compact and small form factor (SFF) systems, and Intel 12th Gen buyers will be pleased to find that they now support the new LGA 1700 socket.

Although these coolers are very compact and only 37 mm in height, they are able to dissipate more heat than you might expect. According to Noctua CEO Roland Mossig, the NH-L9i is capable of spreading up to 160W. This means that you can not run a Core i9 12900K or Core i7 12700K at their full turbo power, although it is certainly possible to run them with some BIOS power adjustments.
