These are amazing. Even at top speed, they are very low noise, they install as fast as you are with a screwdriver (faster if you use the noise dampening connectors), they are super high quality, and the gasket works perfectly. My cpu is a liquid cooled and I have 2 of these in a push-pull configuration on the radiator and now the cpu temperature maxes out with a max load and max overclocking ten degrees C lower and the temperature overall is lower and drops much faster than with the previous fans that were actually pretty good. Airflow through the radiator is amazing. These fans and the 4 pin pwm version of the same physical configuration are the best I have ever seen in decades of working with computers when it comes to radiators and air cooling heatsinks. I have already ordered more for use in other systems and to blow air out of the tower itself (my system doesn't have a powered intake for some reason, but I would use these for that too, if I could). I actually like the colors and look of these, I know that the general opinion is that they look ugly, but they look pretty good to me in my system. There are tons of ways to attach them both physically and electrically. So you can connect them directly to the motherboard or pci card via 3 pin connector or directly to the power supply. So you can actually use as many as you want, creating new intakes and outputs in the case and/or for duct channels as the power supply connection can be chained with as many fans as you can power. They do cost more than usual, but they are absolutely worth it. They will last forever. I have had very good fans in the past and they have never had the six year warranty that these have. They also do not have the travel between the rotor and the stator base that other fans have, which is a good indicator of the longevity of almost any device. And the cable attachments to lower the top speed of these fans are nice to have, but these fans are so quiet that I can have them permanently running at top speed without any problems. I have both light and sound sensitivities and these fans aren't a problem for that at all. I also have chronic migraines and I can leave my computer running during them because they are so quiet. I really can't say enough about how much I love these things
I read about these fans and thought that I would plunk down the cash to try one. Well, color me surprised and satisfied! I had purchased an Arctic Cooling Liquid Freezer 120 for my new Ryzen 2 2600X. The stock fans were mostly quiet except at full speed (1500 RPM) you could hear them. This Noctua fan is as quiet at 2000 RPM as the Arctic Cooling fans at 1500 RPM! I put this Noctua fan on the radiator to push and left the stock Arctic on the other side to pull and my CPU temps dropped 3 degrees Celsius by just changing the fan out! This is a very well designed fan with lots of accessories included in the box. I was always hesitant to buy Noctua fans due to the higher costs, but this fan is worth it in my opinion.
Now I see where all the hype and 5 star reviews are coming from. My idle temps dropped from 115 to 75 degrees F because of this fan. It is quiet but audible (computer on a desk) and it pulls a hell of a lot of air. Has amazing amount of accessories as well. screws and rubber mounting and a way to attach it to a cooler if necessary. Absolutely best fan from the best fan company ever! Great job noctua, it makes sense that you're the leader for PC fans.
these fans will blow away anything literally. they have amazing air flow and a tremendous amount of static pressure for a fan that moves a lot of air. they work great on a radiator which is a plus. i currently have them as my intake while i have 15mm versions of the fans as exhaust with a 360mm radiator. my gpu temps dont go above 70 anymore fans 100% intake 65-68 degrees, 75% speed 67-69, 50% 68-70 avg 69. they make a much larger difference than any other fan ive used in this case. when they ramp up you dont hear the whine like you do most fans, what you hear on these is basically air moving rapidly. i spent an arm and leg on a set of fans but the 6 year warranty 150,000k hours of use which is insane theyre worth the money.
Such a quality fan! It starts with the packaging. Quality items are packaged in quality packaging! The fans themselves are of the highest caliber., and fully modular. Cabling included for slower speeds.
Great silent fans with powerful air flow even at ultra settings while gaming. I had to do something and turn off my monitor while leaving my pc on; after 2 hours I came back to my room and only notice my pc is still on due to the keyboard being RGB. They're so silent that I didn't notice my PC was still on.
