You probably have heard the saying "good things come in small packages" before. I have heard this a lot, as they generally say this to make shorter people feel better. However, I can say it can be very true. In the winter of 2010, I was going to have my wisdom teeth extracted. When my sister had nothing to do for the weeks following she lost her wisdom teeth, I realized I should find something to occupy my time with. Thus, I decided to learn an instrument. This was not the first instrument I had picked up, as I knew how to play the electric bass and the trombone already, but I was determined to expand my musical experience. I had tried guitar in the past, and to actually pick it up would be easy, considering I already had two lying around the house. However, with my smaller fingers, barring and playing chords like B or F is difficult, so I chose the ukulele. Even though there are still barred chords, the nylon strings are much easier on the fingers. The smaller number of strings also make it easy to pick up quickly. The day of the surgery, I was excited, but not for the tooth extraction, but rather for the instrument to come afterwards. Looking back on the time, I am more than glad I chose the ukulele. The instrument, like many things, has its positives and negatives. For one, it is much more travel-friendly, especially with its smaller size in comparison to the guitar. The ukulele may not get as loud, or sound as full or rich as an acoustic guitar due to its smaller size, but it definitely works well for playing on your own. As for an overall package, it still delivers on the enjoyment level, despite its relatively tiny figure. If we look at today's Noctua NH-U9S, you can wonder if it too can deliver on the performance, while remaining small. There are larger and better options for CPU cooling, especially if you have the space. But with size being a limitation in smaller builds, users are pushed towards these options. So can it perform, and how does it compete with last week's cute cooler of the Noctua NH-D9L? Hopefully all of these questions will be answered in the review!
