Summary: I have a R9 295x2 overclocked 9% memory 30%, and CPU overclocked over 5ghz in a single loop on a triple 120mm rad. Keeps my temps at 2 degrees over ambient running benchmarks. I'm only running three of these badies in a pull configuartion. Just impressive.
Pros: Wow Just Wow. These things can move air. I have them in a Pull configuration on my Radiator. They are quieter (alittle) then the (competitors) SP120's that I have at max rpm, and move about twice the air.
Summary: I obtained a CPU cooler, the Noctua NH-U12S, which comes with one of these preinstalled. I obtained a second NF-F12 PWM to mount on the cooler in a push pull configuration for exhausting air toward the rear panel of a Raijintek Aeneas cube case housing a Xeon workstation built for content creation.
Pros: Excellent quality. Six year warranty. Solid performance. Quiet operation.
Cons: High price. Color scheme. Specialized use. Not completely silent.
Pros: I needed a new fan for the front of my NZXT ATX Mid Tower case. Rather than going with another conventional fan I decided that a decent fan should go in front of my hard drive cage. Researched Pressure fans and the Noctua Industrial fans came out as one of the best if not the best fan available. ...
Cons: The brown color of the rubber I do not like, but I can not argue with the results.
Summary: What can you say? These are the best fans on the market. Strong, durable and well built. Been running Noctura fans for the last ten years, NEVER had any noise or vibration, let alone a failure.
Pros: Quiet, high flow rates, fluid bearings and built in vibration pads.
Pros: Very impressed with these fans. They feel very well built and when lowered to around 900 rpm you can't hear them(this does depend on your case as well as I can hear them in the 380T but not the R5). Pulling air through my H220-X and temps are great.
Summary: Great fans, but get fan controllers if you are cooling the case and like quiet. Motors are Noctua, which are lovely. The Germans know how to manufacture, that's for sure. From what I've read Noctua improved the design compared to NF-12s which are amazing already, but at 1500 RPMs This is 3000 rpm so...
Pros: Powerful air flow. Same direct flow as other Noctua fans. Compared to other Noctua NF-12 fan it has the same ratio of noise to performance, but higher RPMs Finally black color we asked for years.
Cons: Needs fan controllers (which I have) to maintain the fan at lower speeds if you are gaming next to the computer. Very loud on full RPM. I'm sure you know what you are buying though. Has slighter harder way to find a comfortable RPM to match the same loudness level as NF-12 model. It needs more vo...
