The Noctua NH-L9i

Looking to grab a different cpu cooler and currently the Noctua NH-L9i interests me, just curious if any 1 has experience with it cooling a intel i5? To be precise i currently use the i5 3350p which is not overclocked.

Thanks

the nh-l9i is rated for cpu with a 65 watts TDP, the i5-3350p is 69 watts TDP so it should be ok. I would honestly go with something better, the only reason I would consider this cooler is if you had space restrictions. Your cpu will turbo up to 3.3 but it needs adequate cooling..

Thanks will look into the coolermaster hyper 212 evo, seems to offer great performance for the buck!
