I would guess he had a l9x65. you can make one out of any thin but stiff wire...
Tested this setup with my i7 4770k (delid) / Node 202 case / LP53 + Noctua A9 - Max temp of 85CHere you go
mounted using a clip wire from the "NH-L9x65", Noctua does not sell the clip alone, the "NH-L9x65" has the "NF-A9x14" fan already.
P.S don't try to email Noctua about the clip, they used to provide it, but not anymore, because of the huge amount of requests thanks to this mod !

It is safe, just make-sure it doesn't go near 90C.Tested this setup with my i7 4770k (delid) / Node 202 case / LP53 + Noctua A9 - Max temp of 85C
Tested this setup with my i7 4770k (delid) / Node 202 case / LP53 + Stock LP Fan - Max temp of 80C
is 85C a safe operating temperature for 4770k?
Have not undervolted but thinking of it.
it is just a clip, they should sell it like every other cooler manufactures does (Prolimatech, Thermalright and ID-Cooling), no need for the drama and the statements, lets seeJust got a reply from Noctua!
They took a couple days to discuss the matter internally and said they'd be posting an official response in the original thread. (I'm not sure if that means this one or the Dan A4 thread.)
Regardless, I would like to thank Noctua service rep Emanuel Fankhauser, as well as everybody else at Noctua, for taking the time to actually consider the request. Even if you've decided that it's not feasible, the respect and dedication to your customers is acknowledged.
I'm sorry, no, you missed something.it is just a clip, they should sell it like every other cooler manufactures does (Prolimatech, Thermalright and ID-Cooling), no need for the drama.
Really !!! come on Noctua "minor temperature decrease" !!Do not expect a miracle though. We're only expecting a minor temperature decrease compared to the NH-L9i
They haven't given an official reply yet. All they said in their email is what I just posted - that they took their time to consider the request and will soon be posting in this thread themselves.I know about your email, and I really appreciate your efforts, but what was their reply !!

I cannot be sure on how those CPUs will behave yet. We'll have to see the benchmarks and various tests.SaperPL, do you think it's possible to cool 95W of R7 1800X in Sentry?
The biggest problem still remains. No ITX motherboards..
I cannot be sure on how those CPUs will behave yet. We'll have to see the benchmarks and various tests.
If I understand the way XFR works versus how AMD acheived their power savings in Ryzen then running games on 1800X might mean something like 2~4 cores boosting and 4~6 cores running background tasks while whole package takes less than 95W. This top wattage is what should happen when you put a huge multithreaded workload on your CPU and that won't happen over night with games and I don't believe you will be able to ramp up voltage on 2 cores that far to reach 95W after seeing the XFR giving only 100mhz more boost over rated turbo on stock that was stated on launch (4.1 XFR on stock vs 3.6/4.0 base/boost).
It's not like you can take all this headroom for wattage left by half the cores running background tasks and ramp up the wattage twice as high on the other two cores, there are definitely some reasonable regional(on-die) thermal limits you cannot cross which will limit XFR even if you have those additional 30W TDP left and only running single threaded task. Otherwise AMD would be marketing their XFR boosting up to 5 or 6 GHz today
They also have the biggest wraith cooler, the square one, that's similar to original wraith cooler that was targeting 125W CPUs, which will most likely be bundled with the 8-core XFR units that are rated at 95W. It looks like AMD is giving everyone who's getting high-end SKUs those 30W of headroom for overclocking out of the box since every Risen has unlocked multiplier.Isn't the Ryzen 1700 processor supposed to be 65W? Why are they selling it with a 95W cooler?
Also, I remember from recent slides that there was a third Ryzen cooler that looked lower profile. I haven't seen anything about that since.
Because the 95W cooler isn't going to fit in the Sentrywhy would you want a lesser cooler? that's only 30w of room. anything less and you could get heat soak in the summer. it also needs room for extended boost situations or if anybody does try to oc with the stock fan.
and the smaller one is probably for the r3/r5 when they come later.
buy something else then(hsf). most ppl arent using the intel stock hsf.Because the 95W cooler isn't going to fit in the Sentry
Haha now I have an excuse to buy a digital caliper. We'll wait for boards to be released to see how different am4 mounting is from lga115x and if it's even possible. If it looks doable I could probably put together some 2d views of the LP53.if someone could upload lp53 dims (and maybe am4 bracket dims for another cooler/that cooler's dims) I could try to cad something up. (am4 bracket for lp53). Ej24 ?
Use at own risk however, if i post.
I have access to a waterjet & other equipment so it ll be really easy for me to make something.... I am tempted....
Thank you for these gems of insight.buy something else then(hsf). most ppl arent using the intel stock hsf.
not to mention these chips/clooers are design for regular computers(matx and up) not super tiny systems like sentry. itx is coming later, with appropriate chips and coolers(maybe small enough).
ps: not every product is going to fit your wants.
IIRC most of the air moved by a fan happens at the tip of the blade. A larger fan moves more air, but have less air flow though the CPU heatsink which is more central; a larger fan would keep the motherboard cooler.Edit2: Next step would be strapping a 120 on there hmmmmmmm
