Great silent cooler. I have no compatibility issues with it and it cooled my i3-6100 just fine, and cools my stock clock i7-6800k with no problems.

Great low profile cooler. It is the tallest cooler to fit in a Corsair Air 240 (I did alot of research but I could be wrong). It cools a little better than the Hyper 212 which is a good thing. Its silent as can be, as known for the Noctua name.

This cooler plain rocks! It is very quiet and cools extremely well. It looks alot larger in the case than it actually is. The mounting system is well constructed and secures it firmly. It also has zero ram interference, so any height ram can be used. If only the fan was not brown, or they gave you an option for another color

Height is a bit misleading. The fan does not go down so much as their picture shows (without bending/breaking the fan clip), and the final installation is bound to be a bit taller than their height figure. It is better not to rely on this number.
Otherwise quiet and powerful cooler.

Very beautiful!! Keeps my CPU cold! Had minor issues while mounting... but everything went well afterwards... I know I should have got a bigger one for my 7700K... but my case size was very small... it is working great so far though...

Absolutely love this HSF combo. Super quiet, fits within the NCASE perfectly, and installs onto the mobo quickly. No problems!

Noctua has always been an amazing brand for air cooling in all their products and this is no different. I chose this because originally I wanted to keep this computer running completely off of air (Explanation of the GPU later.) It did it's job very well combined with the included Thermal Compound, I tried using AS5 originally but found that noctua's paste actually did better by about 3 degrees. Also, I added a second NF-A9 Fan with it to increase the airflow and keep it smooth.
