Product Description

Noctua NF-P12 CPU Cooler The NF-P12 has been specifically developed for applications such as CPU coolers that demand superior pressure and airflow performance. Thanks to psychoacoustic optimizations like the Vortex-Control Notches, the new SCD drive system and Noctua's premium-grade SSO-Bearing, the NF-P12 achieves exceptional quietness and long-term stability.

Customer Reviews

Very quiet fans.
Craig Hoaglund
Will definitely choose these for future builds that need a little extra air.
David Aitken
This Noctua brand fan is quiet and moves a lot of air for the RPM.

I replaced a noisy 80mm fan with this one in the back of my case and the difference is nothing short of phenomenal. Now, most of the noise I hear is from the CPU and power supply fans, and if I'm not next to the machine it's often hard to tell that it's running...even in an empty house. Great product!

To the previous reviewer that couldn't tell the "low noise" and "ultra low noise" adapters apart, there is a small slip of paper that came with the fan. The adapter with the red shrink-wrapped part (resistor) is the low noise. The one with the black shrink wrap is the ultra-low noise. However, the fan is so quiet that I opted for the higher air flow and didn't bother with either of these.

I wanted to install a push/pull setup for my H50 radiator, so I wanted two identical fans. I installed these on the back of the case. I had the stock set up as intake, as suggested by Corsair, so I wanted to see if setting the fan up as exhaust really would downgrade performance. It did, the push/pull set up as exhaust cooled much worse than one fan as intake. So I reversed the fans, and set them up as intake, and it works great. I noticed that from stock to 3.8 Ghz I had virtually no temperature change on my i7 920 processor. So I run it at 3.8, core temperature idles under 40 C.

I have a CM Stacker 830 case (all fans 120 mm) , with these two fans set up on the rear exhaust opening as intake, and then I have two hard drive cages with fans in the front acting as intake. Then I have one fan on top set up as exhaust, and three more fans on the side set up as exhaust. The radiator causes some problems with the side door that holds the fans, so there is no fan over the CPU space.

I have the Noctuas connected to the MB CPU fan controller, using a fan cable splitter to ensure that both fans are running at the same RPM. The other six fans in the case are hooked up to a 6 fan controller in the front, and I keep those turned to the lowest level all of the time. I still can't hear the Noctuas running at full speed over the rest of my 120 mm fans running at slowest speed.

This is one of Noctua's two good fans, the other being the NF-F12. It's a tad expensive, but the P12 has about the best noise to airflow ratio over 1000rpm of any fan I've tried. It's got a nice heft to it and certainly gives an impression that Noctua did not cut corners with materials. Honestly some of their other fans have failed to impress me, but the NF-P12 comes close to perfection.

I've tried lots of fans. LOTS. The NF-P12 may not be the the most quiet, or have the best airflow, but there's no fan that has the combination of very low noise, good airflow, and top notch materials and accessories. If you want a "sure bet" that won't disappoint from a company that is probably second to none when it comes to quality and backing their product, this is the one. If you're using this as a case fan, just use the ULNA cable. At its lowest setting it moves plenty of air for nearly any application. You can even use the extra limiter for other fans.

This is the third fan I bought from Noctua.

I continue to be impressed by the workmanship of this Austrian fan producer. The fan is silent, yet produces a massive air flow of up to 92.3m3/h at 1300rpm and 19.8dB(A), which is barely audible from 1 yard away. You can also use two different extension cables to reduce the RPMs, airflow, and make the fan inaudible. Also, the fans come with great flexible rubber attachments for reducing vibrations, as well as classical screws. I usually use the rubbers, as they have the added benefit of quick installation. This particular fan ended up in a push/pull configuration for water cooling an I7 860 with a Corsair H50, and it works great.

Throughout the last 20 years, I must have purchased around 20 different computer fans. I was never really satisfied until I found Noctua. If you're tired of funny noises coming from under your desk and want maximum cooling for overclocking your computer or a long life for your expensive hardware, get one of these: Simply terrific, strong and silent fans.

This is a fantastic product. My system use to sound like an airplane ready for takeoff until I got these. They are very quiet, efficient & use very little power.

This Noctua brand fan is quiet and moves a lot of air for the RPM.

I previously bought a lot of Nexus and Yate Loon branded fans and still have many of those in use with good results.

The reason I started trying these Noctua brand fans is that they come with 2 little electrical wire adapters to slow the fan speed.

You can run the fan at stock (normal) speed, or when one of these little adapters is fitted, it changes the electrical resistance that is facing the incoming electrical power, and hence the fan speed will run slower. How much slower depends on which adapter is fitted.

For a given quantity of air moved (CFM), these have lower noise (db) and fan speed (RPM) specs.

So far, I can't see any degradation in performance versus Nexus or Yate Loon, and the noise profile seems at least as good if not better.

Being able to switch the speed of the fans with the adapters allows me to stock and use fewer part numbers.

------------------------

Here are some specs:

Stock (no adapter fitted):

19db / 54 CFM / 1300 RPM

With Low Noise Adapter (LNA) Fitted:

17db / 46 CFM / 1100 RPM

With Ultra Low Noise Adapter (ULNA) Fitted:

13db / 37 CFM / 900 RPM

NOTE: I used this website to convert the published flow rates from metric units (m3/h) to imperial units (CFM): [...]
