The Noctua NH-U9B SE2 (Cont’d)
Figure 8 illustrates the base of the cooler. The heatpipes don’t touch the CPU directly; there is a nickel-plated copper plate at the base. The base surface does not have a mirror-like finishing.
Figure 9 reveals the 92 mm fans that come with the NH-U9B SE2. They don’t support PWM speed control.
Figure 10 shows the NH-U9B SE2 with the fans in place. The cooler comes with silicon strips that absorb the vibration from the fans.
