Noctua will launch NH-L9a cooler for AM5 in Q1 2023

Recently, Austrian radiator manufacturer Noctua released a new product roadmap. According to the plan announced in the spring of this year, the white version of the cooling fan will be launched in the first quarter of 2023, but it has been postponed to the third quarter of 2023. Fortunately, the next-generation NH-D15 air-cooled radiator, which has been delayed several times, appears to be available in the first quarter of 2023.

Noctua’s recently released NA-TPG1 thermal paste protective cover has also appeared on the new product roadmap, and there will also be a set with NT-H1 or NT-H2 thermal paste, which is planned to be available in December this year. This year, you can also see the next-generation 140mm fan of Noctua, which is believed to be a product that many players are looking forward to.

In addition, the 24V to 12V voltage converter and 8-way fan hub have been postponed from the original third quarter of 2022 to the first quarter of 2023. The thin 60nm fan and 24V 40nm fan have been delayed from the original fourth quarter of 2022 to the second quarter of 2023, and these products are two quarters later than originally planned.

This time, Noctua also added a new product, the NH-L9a thin radiator for the AMD AM5 platform. Noctua has previously issued an announcement confirming that in addition to the NH-L9a-AM4 thin radiator and NM-AM4-L9aL9i installation kit, its other AM4 platform CPU coolers and installation kits can be applied to the AM5 platform. Obviously, since the NH-L9a-AM4 cannot be applied to the new platform, Noctua made a special design for the new NH-L9a.
