Noctua is well-known for quality cooler setups, and this particular cooler was in the 92x92mm footprint I was looking for. I replaced the 14mm fan with the NF-A9, which is a little beefier (25mm thick), and it fit perfectly onto the heatsink. Total height after installation was 76mm, just under the 80mm limit for my case, and good enough to allow some additional airflow between the cooler and the PSU.

Is working like a charm in my Silverstone GD08 HTPC case. Well worth the investment

Noctua is my favorite brand for fans and air coolers. This cooler has great performance and support CPU until tdp 140w. TOTALLY SILENT

Noctua is known for there awesome coolers and this particular cooler was in the one I had in mind as a replacement for the stock cooler. I replaced the 14mm fan with the NF-A9, which is a thicker 25mm, and it fit perfectly. So now that I have in a sense of peace of mind with it staying cool. Time to overclock.

Easy to mount. Really feels like a premium product. My build got bumped into a bigger case, so changed to a bigger cooler, but next time I have to buy a cooler, it will be a Noctua.
This specific model has no RAM clearance issues or PCI slot 1 interference. A great little cooler if you have a small case.

I bought the thicker fan, and the heat got worse which makes no sense to me. But the thicker fan has a deeper sound, so I kept the thicker fan and undervolted the CPU and Turned off Overclocking and Turbo. Now it runs cool and quiet.
