Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm Fan Review

29 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Noctua’s NF-F12 fans are something special, or Premium as Noctua themselves phrase it. You’ve got to have a burning to desire for silent enthusiast-grade performance in your system to want to invest in these fans which cost a hefty £16 each in the UK and $27 each in the USA. Considering most 120mm PWM fans cost around £7-10 the Noctua NF-F12s are far from cheap, in fact they are nearly twice the price of a standard 120mm fan, but at the end of the day Noctua aren’t...

Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm Fan

  • Conclusion: I find it interesting how my choices in hardware have evolved over time.  When I was a fledgling PC builder my choice in fans was determined by the price and of course L.E.D. color. As my taste broadened I championed high CFM/RPMs, this inevitably led ironically to fan controllers. Now my interest drifts into overclocking, and water cooling and my fan choices has become strictly performance orientated.

  • Excerpt: The fan we are reviewing here today will be the Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm fan. Noctua has been the recipient of many awards for their fan designs. There are long lasting, quiet and allow the user to install them in many different configurations. However, the F12 takes fan technology to a whole new level. Every physical piece of this fan offers something in the way of science to help make it one of the most efficient fans to date.

Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm Fan Review

  • Excerpt: Introduction The Noctua NF-F12 PWM is a 120mm fan designed with high pressure requirements in mind. Typically, the most often quoted metric of fan performance is the volume of air it can move, usually expressed as cubic feet per minute (CFM). This measurement is usually taken without consideration of the resistance to flow that the air is encountering - i.e., what is the fan blowing through.

  • Summary: For those who follow my reviews, you know right off that if there was in fact something to go wrong with a product, I am sure to get the sample that has an issue or I can filter out the nonsense and bring up something that will detract from a products overall points and my personal recommendations. With the NF-F12 PWM fans, there just isn't anything at all to complain about.

Noctua NF-F12 PWM Fan

  • Conclusion: The Noctua NF-F12 was a nice surprise. We were expecting it to be like many of the other fans on the market today, making claims that they just barely cover, if at all. The NF-F12 claims it can cool as well or better than fans pushing more CFM, and do so with less noise. It claims right on the box that it “creates outstanding static pressure and focuses the airflow for superior performance”. During our tests it met those claims.

  • Conclusion: Noctua NF-F12 PWM seems like a natural progression in Noctuas fan development. Personally I can only see a benefit of implementing PWM in their fans because performance is on par with other silent fans available on market. While not being the most silent fan we’ve encountered running at 12V, it is possible to run this fan at reduced voltage to make it unaudible.
