Packaging, Bundle & Fan


U9S arrives in a small box which carries with it Noctua’s well-known styling. The front details key features and the sides/back reveals the technical specifications and drawings of U9S.

Inside, the heatsink and respective components are sectioned off into specific boxes. As we’ve seen before, Noctua always take extra-care with their packaging.


Within the packaging there are a wide range of components which allows U9S to be installed on multiple sockets. The supported sockets are as follows:

Intel: LGA2011-0 & LGA2011-3 (Square ILM), LGA1156, LGA1155, LGA1150
AMD: AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2, FM2+ (backplate required)


Noctua bundle these accessories with U9S:

• NF-A9 PWM premium fan
• Low-Noise Adaptor (L.N.A.)
• NT-H1 high-grade thermal compound
• SecuFirm2™ Mounting Kit
• Installation-kit for second NF-A9 fan (optional)



Along with the heatsink, Noctua bundle an NF-A9 PWM cooling fan with U9S. This fan is 92mm in size and uses a 7-blade design and being PWM offers up to 2000RPM. Noctua include another set of fan clips so that a second fan can also be attached to the heatsink for a push/pull configuration.
