Just found out about this on Noctua's official Tmall page:

L9a Link

L9i Link

The graphene version is new and there is no information about it on the page.

I understand that graphene has much higher thermal conductivity, but does it work well in real life?

We had a thread some time ago discussing about the graphene version of Cryorig C7 Cu. IIRC, such a coating would save a few degrees C in a best case scenario, likely to be counted with fingers of one hand but certainly no double digit improvement.
I think, the general consensus was it is mainly for aesthetic purpose with secondary thermal effect.

Thanks for the heads up!

What black 92mm or 100mm fan would you recommend as a suitable replacement for the stock NF-A9x14 fan? For the extra blackness :)

Just for your info.... And not recommending this... And some on the forums will kill me for even mentioning this.... But you CAN dye Noctua fans with automotive vinyl dye. That's all I'll say. :)
