Post Subject: Noctua NF-P12 Case Fan
Posted on: Jul 14, 2008

Cooling is one great topic that we love to cover because there are so many aspects to it. Today we'll be covering case fans, which in itself can be a large discussion. Today we'll be reviewing a case fan from a company that prides itself on keeping noise to a minimum. Today we'll be reviewing the NF-P12 120mm Case Fan from Noctua.



Right out of the box, there are a few things to note on the NF-P12. For starters, I've never seen an ordinary black fan from this company. Now of course this really has nothing to do with performance, but style is a pretty big part for most people in their projects, so this is something that I though was worth a mention. Personally I think these look great compared to the everyday standard black pieces.



The NF-P12 has been designed to offer higher pressure air movement and it aimed towards being able to work directly with CPU Coolers. The NF-P12 is able to reach a strong 54.34 CFM (or 92.3 m

I can say from first hand experience that this is the fan for the silent case guy. I replaced two fans which are "unseen" in the case with these noctua's, and I am thoroughly impressed. the lack of leds is easily overlooked by the addition of power clip management, which not only eliminates excess wires, works phenomenally for those of us with bus controllers.

An interesting note which I have inadvertently discovered, these babies react marvelously to black light and blue led light.
excellent fan !


**safety note**

try not to think of the price of the part your cutting in half.

I wasn't able to get very cool shots. The lighting really seems to only make a difference at some extremly close distances. Now obviously in a computer case, just about everything is close range, but I used a standard 12 in" black light, so I was hoping the effects would be a bit stronger at a distance.

The lighting was cool, but not to extreme :(

You should get a picture of it spinning I think that would look neat.
