So cool...

Richard E., Newegg

  • Pros: I have 6 of this running at full speed. As well as 6 120mm Noctua fans in a push/pull configuration for my radiator. My next goal is to get some fan controllers for when my system is idle. But for the most part, all 12 fans keep my system ice cold. But more importantly, quiet.
  • Cons: None at all!

High Quality Product!

  • Summary: WILL BE buying another one for push/pull setup! Should have bought Noctuas years ago! If you want top notch/silent/powerful fan this is it! You won't be disappointed!
  • Pros: I would like to point out that, this is my first Noctua ever! The reason I went with Noctua is because I needed a quiet fan but still a fan that pushes good amount of airflow. I put this baby on my radiator and my temps dropped while the fan is absolutely silent! I am very much impressed with Noctua, I should have went with Noctua long time ago! Goodies: - Silent (even at full speed). - Lots of airflow for how silent it is! - Fits 140mm/120mm - High quality. - Comes w...
  • Cons: A little pricey. Only comes in the same colors.

Best fans I've found

Kirk W., Newegg
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Just a tip from an experienced builder. Make sure you have more/bigger fans blowing into your case than blowing out. You want to maintain positive pressure inside your case. IF you have more exhaust than intake your computer will suck in dust through every crack and crevice trying to equalize pressure. If you have positive pressure it will actually blow dust out of your PC. You will have to dust your PC far less often with positive pressure.
  • Pros: I've built more than 100 computers for myself, family and friends over the years and Noctua makes the best fans I've ever used. I love that you can fit this 140mm fan into many places where only a 120mm would fit. Don't listen to John M's review below, he seems to be measurement challenged... This is in fact a 140mm fan, but it has mounting holes to fit 120mm screw holes, and comes with adaptors so it also fits 140mm screw holes. just make sure if you plan to mount it...
  • Cons: Color is a con for some, but I prefer quality and quiet to flashiness. Since they are inside the case I don't spend that much time looking at them anyway, but since I have an Asus Sabertooth motherboard the fans actually match quite nicely for me.

Silent.

  • Summary: It might look like it came out of the 1980's with that terrible color scheme but this is a great fan and very silent.

Well built and quiet

RJ, Amazon

  • Summary: Installed it on the back of my Fractal Design R4 case. Fits perfect using the provided rubber plugs as cushion between metal. I had to play with it a little to figure out the best way to secure the fan instead of using the provided metal screws. Just make sure you push the brown rubber plugs in all the way and pull it on the back to hold the fan in place. The fan is quiet and does a good job exhausting the hot air out of the system.

Quiet with good airflow.

  • Summary: I got 2 of these fans to replace the fans in my CM Storm laptop cooler. The fans that come with it are very loud an have a ton of vibration. These Noctua are God sent. No noise and no vibration, can't even tell they are on. They cool almost the same as the 2400rpm fans that came with the CM Storm. The Nactua are running at 1200rpm.

Not used as a computer cooling fan but very pleased with performance.

BFP, Amazon
2 September 2013
  • Summary: These fans (3) were purchased to improve ventilation of an electrical cabinet and a berth area in a cruising boat. Since they operate on 12 volts and use very little power I thought they would be ideal for this application. A pair of custom panels were created to mount the fans and they have been installed and wired through a 12 volt DC timer. This allows the fans to be activated at various times throughout the day when I am not at the boat.
