First off let me start by saying I have been a huge fan of Noctua products since they sent me my first cooler to test so many years ago. In the time gone by, Noctua was one of the only companies driven to the perfection to search for a noise free user environment while still delivering some of the best cooling results on the market. To be bluntly obvious, there is only so long a company can utilize one basic concept before technology passes it by and they are no longer competitive. Well, Noctua thought ahead and really came up with a wonderful fan that is one of the most thought-out designs on the market today.
I know, the first thing you are going to say is that Noctua fans are ugly and the colors don't match the theme in your chassis. To that I say simply this, get over it already. These colors have made Noctua fans famous over the years and can be discerned in a crowd at long distances. The technology involved in designing a fan like this newest submission far outweighs the concern for color. Then again I am a function over form sort of guy and the only one to see my rigs is me, unless I choose to host images of it.
That being said I would give up a noisy working environment for some super performing fans that may not match and let's be honest, you can only see a couple through the window of your chassis and if you don't have a window in your chassis, then there isn't anything to complain about now, is there?
This is a first for us at TweakTown as we don't typically do a fan only review for anyone, but we made an exception when we saw what Noctua offers in the NF-F12 PWM Focused Flow fans they just brought to the market. I tried a bunch of testing ideas, some worked and some just looked lame once I got images and results in, so I decided with the approval of Noctua to go ahead and test like as if it were a cooler review. Since I was sent three of these fans for testing, I decided it best to strap them up to my Swiftech Edge H20-320 HD kit and see if there are any benefits to be had besides the incredibly low noise levels that we have all come to know and love about Noctua products.
Let's get through the specifications and see what these gems are going to cost you and just what sort of performance the NF-F12 PWM fans bring to the table.
