Summary: I know noctua make the best fan. i have had their other fans and they are super quiet with great airflow. However, this one is noisier at the same airflow as the other nocuta fans i have. Wish i had known this before purchase because now i am unhappy i spend the money on these.
Summary: I like Noctua's P12 and F12, but the S12 has about the worst noise to airflow ratio I've ever encountered. At anything other than the lowest speed, it emits a loud whirring. At top speed it screams while pushing air hardly justifying the volume, making me almost feel pity for it.
Summary: I returned it. It is noisy (IMHO) and does not provide much static pressure. Definitely not for CPU cooling. Not sure it would compare much more favorably as a case fan as I find it noisy (not sure if we are allowed to make direct product comparisons here, but google for 120mm fan reviews and that...
Cons: Шумит. В корпусе помимо него установлено два Noctua NF-S12B ULN, которые на 750 об/мин практически бесшумны, на их фоне этот вентилятор при тех же оборотах отчетливо слышно.
; Не могу понять почему, ведь их конструкция идентична, возможно мне попался неудачный экземпляр.
