    Default Noctua industrialPPC 24V Fans and Chromax Accessories Review

    Introduction Typically, nobody is*supposed*to run a piece of hardware outside of the way that it was intended to run. Of course, we make exceptions because we love to overclock things and see how much extra performance there is to be gained. So it may seem a bit strange to review something and only give it half of what it’s capable of. When you consider that the goal is silence in cooling, then it begins to make sense. NOCTUA just released a new series of industrialPPC fans that rate at 24V. While this can be useful for high end server environments that don’t care about noise as much, the benefit for everyday consumers is at 12V, the fans will run more silently while hopefully*giving decent air flow. We’ll find out how well they do, but there’s one more huge thing that consumers have been waiting eons for. COLORS!!! That’s right. NOCTUA is finally giving consumers a broad range of colors to customize their fans beyond*brown or beige (I suppose there were those grey colors too). Personally, all it took for me to fall in love with a NOCTUA fan was to see how it performed in person, but I totally understand people who don’t go in on one of them because of the color scheme. Now there are Chromax accessories that allow the user to customize each fan to have a splash of color that matches a build better, while still having the professional look that comes from having a NOCTUA fan over a flashy LED fan. We’ll see how those look in a bit, but for now, let’s hear a word from the company behind our products today.

    Good review Josh, thanks for sharing.
    Those are great fans as all Noctua products, but man they are way to expensive (US$ 30 a piece). i.e. I actually have 12 fans (Swiftech Helix PWM) installed in my rads which cost me US$150, and they are working as a charm, now... if I want to replace them I will spend almost the same amount of money of one GTX 970, or one 1TB SSD, hey I just bought one Samsung 950 Pro NVME 512GB SSD for that kind of money.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    I have a i7-4790K based system with six 140mm Noctua fans in it. (and one 120mm too) They are the old style brown and beige colors, but they work really well, and they're quiet. I'm not sure if I would have bought this many of them at their normal selling price, but I won four of the 140mm and two 120mm fans in a contest. I bought a few more of the 140mm to finish my build.
    They are as good as it gets as far as quality goes, but they are too expensive.



    Oops! Wrong picture! LOL!
    Try this one out,...........

    OOOHHH Shiny! How do you like the 950 Pro?

    I've almost pulled the trigger on one of those about a dozen times over the last month. I'm crazy about NVME SSD's like Calemus is about AMD Motherboards. (Well, I don't throw money at the screen, but close!).
