    When you open the retail box, you will know it was money well spent.

    Super quiet, especially with the included Low-Noise Adapter! Note that it barely fits with the 'ASRock AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac Mini ITX AM4'; see two pics showing essentially zero clearance between part of the cooler and a couple random sticky-uppy things on the mobo. Being Noctua, the fan's brown, but the innards of my case aren't visible, so I don't care!

    Expensive but worth it. Dead silent and performs like a champ.

    from completed build Spark (mini-ITX build)

    Given the slightly thicker fin density in comparison to it's Intel counterpart, it feels like it runs slightly cooler and fills in the space very nicely. Can't go wrong with Noctua!

    Noctua excels in cooling at a low noise floor. This tiny cooler is amazing for an AM4 CPU and, if you were to pull it apart and paint the fan and housing black, can look very cool.

    So quiet it is crazy. Under load in my mitx Dan Case on a Ryzen 1700x, fan speed has yet to hit 75%, and cpu stays around 30-35C. Love it!

    This fan is dead silent. I had to check to make sure I didn't forget to connect it when I first ran the PC. My Ryzen 5 1600 is at stock clocks and I've never see it go over 64C when gaming. Highly recommend for any slim builds.

    Personally I like the distinct colours very low and fits very nicely in my small case. Soo Far from my testing it keeps the CPU nice and cool.

    Short, fit perfectly in tiny SFF case and astoundingly quiet.

    This low profile cooler is no problem for the Ryzen 5 1600 in a tight enclosure. Excellent quality and performance!
