Noctua NH-L9i-17xx Chromax.Black

Best Low-Profile CPU Cooler For i9-13900KF

Best Low Profile CPU Cooler For i9-13900KF - Noctua NH-L9i-17xx Chromax.Black
Noctua NH-L9i-17xx Chromax.Black.

Specifications: Fans: 1 x 92mm | Fans Speed: 600 — 2500RPM | Noise: 23.6dB(A) | Dimensions: 37 x 95 x 95mm | Socket Compatibility: Intel: LGA1700 | RGB Fans: No

Pros

  • Easy to install
  • Good RAM & PCIe compatibility
  • Quiet fans
  • Excellent build quality
  • Great size-to-performance ratio

Cons

  • Not suitable for overclocked CPUs

Cooling Performance: The Noctua NH-L9i-17xx Chromax.Black comes with a single high-end 92mm NF-A9x14 PWM fan. During our dedicated performance test, the cooler could barely keep the i9-13900KF’s temperatures at bay, showcasing zero overclocking capabilities. In our opinion, if you’re going low-profile, forget overclocking.

WARNING: While overclocking a CPU can yield better performance, it can also reduce its lifespan, and in extreme cases, cause damage.

Build Quality: The Noctua NH-L9i-17xx is exceptionally well-built; the base and heat pipes are made from copper, and thanks to the cooler’s compact size, the heatsink doesn’t extend over the RAM slots. Furthermore, aluminum cooling fins with a nickel finish and soldered connections improve the cooler’s longevity.

Aesthetics: With the recent color overhaul, the Notcua NH-L9i-17xx Chromax.Black now offers a completely black design with no RGB. While having no RGB can be a bummer for many, we believe it’s perfect for a stealth build, which the cooler is built for.

Thermal Benchmarks Of The Best CPU Coolers For i9-13900KF

Over the years, our team has tested hundreds of CPU coolers, and the insights we learned from those hands-on testings enabled us to pick the truly perfect CPU coolers for the i9-13900KF. Here are our benchmarks:

How We Tested & Picked These Coolers 

  • Budget: The first thing that comes to mind regarding computer hardware is your budget. Most people don’t like to spend a lot on coolers, but it is essential to get a proper cooler for a high-end CPU, as going for an affordable option may cause inefficient cooling, resulting in much lower performance from the processor.
  • Performance: A cooler’s performance is the most important aspect to consider. There must be no compromise in the heat dissipation ability of a cooler. Keeping this in mind, we know that a processor’s performance depends directly on a cooler’s performance, and for getting the most out of a processor, a suitable cooler is very important.
  • Noise Level: A cooler’s noise is a big concern for most users, especially gamers. Everyone prefers a cooler with lower noise output. We have taken the noise output of coolers under special consideration when looking for the best Intel Core i9-13900KF CPU coolers to ensure lower noise levels.
  • TDP Rating: Just as a processor’s TDP is responsible for the amount of heat produced from it, a cooler’s TDP defines the heat it dissipates. Due to this, we recommend a cooler’s TDP be higher than the CPU’s for ideal cooling.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the i9-13900KF come with a cooler?

No. The Intel Core i9-13900KF does not come with a stock cooler.

What type of CPU Cooler should I get for i9-13900KF?

We recommend purchasing an AIO cooler for proper cooling. However, an air cooler like the Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 can also sustain the CPU.

Can I overclock i9-13900KF with an Air Cooler?

On paper, yes, you can overclock the upcoming i9-13900KF using an air cooler. But we don’t recommend doing so as the overclocks won’t be stable.
