Choosing a heatsink is normally pretty easy. Search for one with good performance, make sure it is within your price range and simply ensure it will work on your particular system. Of course the assumption here is that you're running a standard ATX motherboard in a modern tower chassis. But, what if you need a custom cooler for a non-traditional system like a HTPC or SFF?? These systems often feature limited space leaving you with the OEM cooler as your only option. In this review we will be looking at a new compact heatsink from Noctua called the NH-L9i. The NH-L9i is a specially designed heatsink for small system where space is at a premium and noise is a driving factor. As you can imagine a heatsink designed for these conditions will have a few limitations so be sure to check your system specs before you begin.
