On the top of the cooler, we can the top of the 5 U-shaped heat pipes as well as a nice Noctua logo pretty much front and centre.
To get things kicked off, I had to install this on a Socket LGA 1151 motherboard.

Noctua has graced us with some more normal sized coolers that still offer great performance, so lets wrap this up and see how I really feel about them.
These coolers both feature a single 92mm fan, though a second fan is easily purchased if needed.
