Where Noctua's really shine is not just the low noise, but the amount of pressure they emit. Hold your hand an inch away from the noctua vs another fan running at similar speed/noise, and you can feel the "thickness" of the air coming from the Noctua. Yes there are other fans out there that advertise better air pressure and similar sound levels, but they are often even more expensive than the Noc.
Another place this product shines is the included voltage resistors for customizing the fan's speed. FYI, because mine did not say it anywhere on the box: BLUE= U.L.N, BLACK=L.N. In other words, blue is the quietest/slowest. I find that the Black regulator is the best compromise of speed and noise, being not much louder than the ULN, but much quieter than full speed. My guess is the BLUE is 5v, the BLACK is 7V and it runs at 12V without either.
But here's the real benefit: you can use the spare regulator on one of your other non-noctua fans. I used the spare BLUE regulator on a rather loud 140mm fan I had in my case.
The Noctua 140mm's normal holes actually line up with a 120mm fan spot. It comes with adaptors to mount it to a 140mm. Not many cases have 120mm spots that double as 140mm, but some do, in which case the Noctua works out well. Check your case (especially the rear vent) to see if it has an extra set of holes in a slightly larger pattern than the regular ones. I've always felt that 120mm for a rear fan is just a bit too small, since often it is a case's primary exaust.
The materials and build quality of the fan and mounting are excellent. This review refers to the 140mm diameter fan. Noctura also sells a 120mm fan that is virtually identical except for size.
There is nothing shabby about this product. It ships with both screws and soft rubber suspension mounts. I was a bit dubious about the rubber mounts, wondered if they would remain securely in place or pop loose from the fan case. I can report that once attached, they are not going to come loose accidentally yet can be removed and reused if desired.
The fan is extremely quiet, even at full speed. Noctua attributes this to the notches molded into the trailing edges of the blades. Whatever the reason, it doesn't make much noise at all. Speed control is not accomplished on this fan through pulse width modulation, even though most current motherboards provide PWM-controlled fan connectors. Instead, Noctua provides three short connector cables, two of which have in-line resistors to reduce the speed, giving the user a choice of low, medium, or high. At the low speed, the fan is utterly noiseless. At medium, you can hear it if you listen for it. Even on high, it is almost whisper quiet.
This fan is an example of why it pays to spend a little more for quality. Highly recommended.
Not only that they are quiet but they look and feel solid. Most case fans are flimsy and cheap feeling. They are worth the money if you are into this sort of thing.
