    Default Noctua Fans > Everything!?

    Well I was just testing my new Noctua NF-P12 (Pluged it into PSU to see if it works) and Gee am i impressed, It is not only Completely Silent on 12V, Its also pushing out a LOT of air compared to my other fans.
    I've been looking for a silent Change for my exhaust fans, does anyone have the Noctua Case Fans? And are they any good?

    They seem to be a good choice, although I don't have any Noctua fans. Didn't like the colors.

    Instead I have various NoiseBlocker fans that are comparable with regard to CFM and dBA: Noctua NF-P12 = 54.32 CFM at 19.8 dBA (when not using one of the adaptors), NoiseBlocker Multiframe M12-S2 = 51 CFM at 19 dBA. I use a pair of NoiseBlocker M12-P (PWM) fans on my Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme RT 1366: 43 CFM to 78 CFM at 12 dBA to 29 dBA.

    Have not heard the Noiseblocker or Gentle Typhoons in person, but I have several Noctua fans and they are utterly outstanding. Don't come cheap though.

    I've never had a Noctua fan. (Like others, I also found them too ugly to consider buying. )

    I do have some nice 140mm Acutakes, AABs, and SilentiumPCs. Imported them all (12) from Poland. www.angela.pl

    I like Fluid Dynamic Bearings, which are what Noctua use. "SSO" is just their term for it.

    (The AAB 140s and Acutake 140s share the same OEM - Arctic Cooling.)

    Hi Benji,

    I'm new to this forum, just trying to work my way in. I'm using a Noctua 120mm fan for case exhaust, running off the mobo case 1 fan. It barely makes any noise. I've mounted it on the outside of the case and have put a 4cm rubber fabric "tunnel" on it to give it's output some direction and to insulate noise.

    I've also put another fan (Antec Tri-cool) below it over the PCI slots to exhaust air from the two 9800GT silentcells, running on low off the powersupply. Very quiet and does the job. The cards idle at about 40C and I've never seen them over 50, running Oblivion.

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers
    Steve

    Cheers Steve welcome to the forum,
    Update*
    I've got 2 of the cpu fans set up push and pull on my Corsair H50 and another Noctua Case fan underneath it as an exhaust the fans are dead silent and keep the temps inside my case low.
    At the moment the air in there is 23C and ambient is only 19-20C.
