Noctua NF-F12PWM Review

The Noctua NF-F12PWM is one of the best fans on the market for sure. It’s a fan that should be considered when searching for high end fans, it’s very quiet with high performance in keeping everything cool.

We tested it with air cooling and water cooling system and it’s the best choice for applications which call for a high amount of static pressure. The rubber anti-vibration mounts are super useful as you know at times fans at high speeds can cause vibrations which these don’t. Comes with sleeved cables, comes with all mounting hardware i and even 6 year warranty!

When testing these bad boys, I can say it’s one of the best fans in the market, but it is a very expensive fan, costing £17.95 each. The price is something to consider, but you should also consider do you really need these fans? You can get something with slightly cheaper with the sacrifice of noise. You can get some decent fans around £10 which you probably wouldn’t even care about the difference. Honestly, if you need it to be super quite then go get these fans, but I would say you can invests that money elsewhere in your system to gain a better benefit for the average consumer but the for the guys that need it, I would consider this no doubt, it is the best fan out. Finally the colour of the Noctua is just horrible, let’s be honest.
