Quiet PC Fan,  By Acoustic PC


Today we are going to talk about the worlds most Quiet Computer Fan.  

Noctua Fans approximately two years ago from today October 15, 2008  They were not quite the name that rolled of the tip of
your tongue in the USA. However the Austrian company was already quiet popular in Europe with there ground breaking
advance straight blade design providing the best sound to (cfm) airflow available.

The Noctua Company was first introduced in the US and the very first retailer to sell this Product was none other than yours truly
Acoustic PC.  We actually were hard at work searching the net as always for new innovative products when I was blow away by
the unique fan design.  I did not know about this company but the design made sense right away.  Instead of the aerodynamic
approach the blades were straightish like for scooping up air.  I also read that the motor was a unique noise less, friction less,
no noise motor.  I immediately proceeded to contact the company for sample.  When I got our first cooling fans from Noctua I
was immediately impressed by the package, but I always have said you can't hang retail packages on the wall.  While I could not
wait to look inside when I opened the package I could see and feel the quality right away as well as all the nice accessories
included, such as screws, silicone anti-vibration bolts, ULa speed resistors, 3 pin to 4 pin molex adaptor, Etc...

When I plugged in the Noctua fan to my
AC \ DC fan adaptor the 120mm NF-S12 800 Rpm version was noiseless and the
NF-S12 1200 Rpm was extremely near silent yet pushed plenty of air even for moderate Over clocking.

After we began importing the fans to the US Noctua beagn to launche new innovative products for CPU cooling, and chipset
cooling as well as various fan sizes such as
Noctua 80mm NF-R8 and Noctua 92mm NF-B9.  Since then Noctua has really
made there Mark in the market.  From being the fan only know to the uber-geeks they are now highly sawed after by not just
Silent PC Enthusiast but by Manny IT Professionals and quality System builders a-like.  The Noctua fans also ahve a huge
following for other applications outside computers such as Home Theater Cabinet cooling as well as other multi-purpose uses.

After all there huge successes the company has been true to there roots and has kept on pushing the limits and pace from the
beging and even now...  



There lastest Quiet fan release was the most mind blowing of all The
Noctua NF-P12 Vortex Fan.   

What is Vortex? Well the Vortex design is totally the most Unique of all, while the other fans are just as good but for different
situations this fan is specifically optimized for sound as well as back pressure.  This means that the fan will not allow the airflow
to come back out even when used on dens CPU Coolers with Manny fins or aa a case fan with a dust filter.  And there an
excellent choice for radiator for water cooled PC's.

This is the first fan on the market designed specifically for coolers as well as radiators a-like.  The
NF-P12 also boast the same
SSO bearing noise less, Friction less Motor.  Another very special feature never before seen on a Quiet PC Fan, is the Vortex
notches, these ridges on the fans reduce high frequency noise making the fan airflow sound level more appealing to the human
ear by reducing the high frequency sound caused by airflow (cfm).  The Noctua NF-P12 fan runs at various speeds unsung the
Ula resistors.  Full speed with no Ula adaptor 1300 Rpm's @ a very quiet 19 (dB).  Boasting almost 60 (cfm) cubic feet per
minute of airflow.  With Ula No. 1 The fan drops the sound level to 17 decibels becoming a extremely Quiet fan,  and with ULa
No. 2 the cooling fan now becomes near silent at a mer 12 (dB)sound decibel rating.

WOW, Pretty Impressive!



Noctua The Company named after a Little Owl,  still keeps pushing the Limit and staying on top of the game, always tweaking
and revising there CPU Coolers, as well as cooling fans.  They have been reviewed by Manny computer review sites and been
highly awarded as the claim say's to be the highest quality fan & heatsink manufacture on the planet achieving the highest
performance at the lowest sound level possible.  Noctua has also produced there own NON conductive thermal compound
named "Tim Solution."  
Noctua's Tim solution maybe non electrically conductive Yet it achieves excellent heat transfer and
performing with in a degree of a high-end conductive thermal compound.  Again very impressive.  And if that wasn't enough
Noctua has just release the new revision of there Xeon CPU heatsinks but now avilable with a unique Dual processor CPU set
up.  Noctua's
NH-U12DX and NH-U9DX CPU heat sinks allowing a triple fan set up.  "A bit Extreme?  Maybe, but thats what
Noctua is about.  Why the triple fan design.  Well By adding a 3rd cooling fan sandwiched in the middle of the two coolers you
create a duct affect with no air escaping thus increasing CPU Cooling performance greatly as wellas less noise.

These people think of everything.  The R&D Team Research and Development at Noctua must eat, breathe and sleep fans.
Either that or they must be from another planet and everyone there is a sound and thermal management Engineer.  



I can't wait what other products Noctua has in store for us in the future.  It seems every time i think they have reinvented the
wheel they just seem to surprise me agin and again.

Noctua Simply the Quitest fan available.
