You can do better Noctua

William P., Newegg
10 May 2015
  • Summary: I thought the noise was caused by the hard drive cages, I mean how likely is it that you get two noctua's making the same noise? However even with the drive bays removed the noise remains.
  • Pros: love the color scheme, one works flawlessly
  • Cons: 2 out of 3 make a quiet "grinding" noise. In a normal build i probably wouldn't notice, however this build is <10db simply inaudible except for the two fans i mounted in the front of the case.

Robust

thomas c., Newegg
6 February 2015
  • Summary: Styling doesn't matter, because they are inside my windowless, LED-less case where I can't see them. I rather play WOT then admire the guts of my case.
  • Pros: These fans have a solidness to them. Not made of thin cheap plastic. You get what you pay for. These give real good air flow for the speed. Even come in quality packaging.
  • Cons: none

Noctua Quality, Cheaper Price

Patrick L., Newegg
19 January 2015
  • Summary: Whereas the fan quality is high it only comes with the fan itself and 4 screws. No nice accessories that you may be accustomed to coming with Noctuas more expensive models. Also there is not any rubber grommets around the screw holes which you also may be accustomed to.
  • Pros: For the Redux series of Noctua fans you get the premium Noctua quality fans for a fraction of the cost. See other thoughts for what you sacrifice. The fan is quiet and moves air, it does what it was intended to do.
  • Cons: See other thoughts.

Very Quiet

blake w., Newegg
14 January 2015
  • Summary: I was looking at this brand a while back but hated the brown / tan color scheme. When I saw these on sale I bought 4 of them right off the bat. Totally worth it. I sometimes forget that my computer is on when I am in my room.
  • Pros: These are VERY quiet, I absolutely love these fans. They are very well built fans. The loudest fan In my PC now is the Graphics card, and I just adjust that in my settings. I can fall asleep with my computer on now easily, and while watching movies there isn't a loud droning from fans in the back...
  • Cons: The only con is the price, but you have to pay for quality.

Noctua Fans

Angela D., Newegg
12 October 2014
  • Pros: Bought this fan based on my previous experience with Noctuas (new ones installed just yesterday.) These fans are great: great coolers, well designed, and as quiet as could be. A friend recommended Noctua fans to me and I recommend them to all reading this post.
  • Cons: The only con with this particular fan: it didn't come with rubber "screws." Admittedly, I should have known; in my haste, I neglected to read the "fine print."

Tan bueno como esperaba

Pedro Herraiz Novella, amazon.es
31 January 2015
  • Summary: Ya tengo experiencia con otros productos de Noctua y compré este ventilador esperando calidad y eficiencia. Justo lo que ofrece. En mi torre, ANTEC P193, con una temperatura ambiente en la habitación bastante alta, suele funcionar auto-regulado entre 900 y 1000 rpm y a esas velocidades es muy...

La calidad de Noctua por menos dinero

dayer, amazon.es
29 May 2011
  • Summary: Tiene un buen acabado a falta de los detalles de los modelos normales de Noctua, sin las sujeciones ni los recubrimientos antivibración. Pero es silencioso, mueve un buen flujo de aire y es más barato que los modelos convencionales del fabricante.
