  1. Since you're looking at the NH-U9S, I'm assuming you're building within an SFF system like a EVGA Hadron Air. Regardless, yes the cooler will be capable of cooling the CPU with a mild overclock. Mind you, if your ambient air temps are lower you could go for higher overclocks. As a confirmatory note, I used a NH-U9S on an EVGA Z170 Stinger inside an EVGA Hadron Air which was powered by an i7-6700K.

    Mind sharing your full system's specs? You placed this thread in the motherboard section yet there's no mention of a motherboard ;)

    If you have access to Cryorig products, you could look into the H5 or H7 coolers. Speaking of which where are you located? Would you happen to have a budget and a preferred site for purchase? The NH-U9S would do the job but if you had a better option, why not take that, right?

  4. Unfortunately i am currently living in Austria which makes it very hard to find all these parts. I looked it up on the Website I am buying all my other parts from, but I didn`t find any product named Cryorig.
