As the title states.
Building a rig for my son....that's the size limitation with the case that'll be used.
Cooling an i7 6700K on an Asrock Z170 Extreme6

Haven't a clue if he'll oc it...but if so, it'd most likely be modest.

Check the one in my mITX build, signature has it and I'm mobile, but it holds 4.5GHz on my 6700K without issue.

The U9S, IIRC, has more surface area.

But....this taken from the review on the front page:
The NH-U9S has more heatpipes than the NH-D9L, and taller heatsinks as well. But it doesn’t quite match the tandem tower in its cooling prowess. Still, it pulls air though quietly.

With stock fans they look to be within 2°C of each other, go for either you like :)
