Great cooling

  • Summary: The fan cools great I have it set as a side case fan. Its a bit noisy on full so I have it set to low and it still puts out plenty of air. I gave it a 4 star for the noise I think it should be a little quieter for the price.

  • Summary: silent, blow a good amount of air compaired to the nzxt 140 fans that come with the switch 810 and more than the Cooler master essentials 140 1000 rpm than i own too. as always with noctua, great bundle, great quality. well, with the price you pay, at least. rubber at the corner, rubber fix, sleeved extension... bad point, not pwm and my corsair link can not command it. anyway there 2 adaptors in the bundle that decrease the speed from 1200 rpm to 900 / 750.

Very quiet

Cory Nelson, Amazon

  • Summary: When I first built my computer, I ended up using the 6 120mm fans that came with my case. The cooling was great, but the sound was like an airplane taking off. After several years of putting up with this, I decided to do something about it. I replaced all of the fans with these 4x Noctua 120mm and 2x Noctua 140mm fans. The difference was startling -- pretty much dead silent, and still enough airflow to more than adequately cool the system.

Lots of hype. Meets many of it.

  • Summary: The fan looks great, feels great (build quality) and for the most part runs great. Can it get a little loud? Yes. Does it push a good amount of air at 100%? Yes. If you use the adapters or fan controller to get it completely silent, it doesn't push as much air. If it was completely silent at 100% I would give it 5 stars. And I only have high standards because it demands a high price premium over other fans.

Great Case Fan

WMWM, Amazon

  • Summary: This "austrian" designed fan, along with every other noctua fan uses SSO dynamic bearings, which i find to be one of the best in terms of long term use, whereas rifle bearings and double ball bearings start making grinding noises after months of use, All my noctua fans have performed admirably and still do This particular one, i use for my 140mm radiator, however, there is quite some air leakage, so a fan shroud was needed to bring its rad performance up to par.

update to previous review--disappointment

Matthew S., Newegg

  • Pros: Moves a lot of air, especially at full speed. The included hardware allows for mounting in 12cm holes, 14cm holes, with noise dampening silicone inserts or the threading fan screws. Two adapters to control rpm and noise. High quality product. Manufacturers included information very informative.
  • Cons: After removing all other fans in my case, including the ones in the power supply and video card, I was left with only noctua fans, four of these, and two of the nf-p12. I kept ruling out noise after noise, only to be left with the fact that these fans, while more mild than the power supply and video card fan, do indeed make their fair share. I can unhook one of the p12 and not notice a noise drop, but unhooking one of these is noticeable. I run these at ultra low nois...

High quality fan

Daniel B., Newegg
11 February 2010
  • Summary: At the highest (no-adapter) setting, the fan isn't exactly quiet, but probably quieter than other fans moving that amount of air. Slightly audible at the lowest (700rpm) setting, but better than any other 140mm I've tried. I'm using two 140mm fans on the top of my case, so the lowest setting is fine.
  • Pros: Solid craftsmanship, quiet at the two lower settings.
  • Cons: If you're mounting this on a 140mm slot, you'll need to pick up your own washers and bolts. The screws it comes with don't fit the adapter holes very well (need to be placed from one side). Also the adapter clips don't go on very securely. To fix this, I used the silicon mounting doohickys in the 120mm holes, which held the clips on firmly, and used my own washers and screws to mount the 140mm holes. Worked great.

Haute qualité !

  • Summary: Excellent ventilateur ! Silencieux, efficace et facile à installer. C'est dans ce qui se fait de mieux aujourd'hui. Le bundle est très riche avec les connectiques qui donnent la possibilité de réduire la vitesse. La couleur est la signature de la marque. Beaucoup pestent dessus... à tord je trouve. Les goûts et les couleurs... Je mets une étoile de moins juste pour le prix. Produit de luxe à ce niveau-là.
