Disclaimer:
We create and update our compatibility lists with the utmost care. Unfortunately, mainboard manufacturers tend to change certain components and heatsinks without pointing it out by using corresponding revision names. If you run into problems while installing our coolers on one of the mainboards listed as being compatible, please don't hesitate to contact our support team at support@noctua.at.

Please also keep in mind that other components such as narrow or small cases as well as memory modules with special (higher) heat-spreaders can cause compatibility-issues.

For use in systems from Dell, HP or Lenovo, please note this FAQ.

This chart provides information about the basic mechanical compatibility of our coolers with CPU sockets complying to the official Intel or AMD specifications. Please note that irrespective of the basic mechanical compatibility with a given socket and depending on the individual configuration, certain mainboards or other components may pose problems. The fact that the cooler is mechanically compatible with a given socket thus provides no guarantee that it can be used on each system that is based on this socket. This also includes the possibility that some processors' power dissipation may exceed the capacity of compact cooler models (e.g. NH-L9, NH-L12 or, in some cases, NH-U9 series). Please thus take note of our TDP (Thermal Design Power) recommendatons for smaller cooler models and always consult our extensive compatibility lists and FAQs that provide detailed compatibility information for individual mainboards and other components. In case of doubt, please contact our support team
