Noctua NF-P12 Review

Key features

The Noctua NF-P12 is a computer fan which has all those features required to handle the high-performance of modern CPUs. The NF-P12 has a nine blade design that is pressure optimized for high-end devices including CPU coolers, radiators for water cooling, cases with restrictive fan grills and power supplies. While maintaining a very low noise level, the NF-P12 is able to achieve superb airflow and static pressure. The NF-P12 provides up to 1.68 mm H2O at 1300 rpm, resulting in superior performance.

Introduction

Noctua is another of those companies that take time to launch their products. NF-P12 is Noctua’s latest entrant in the computer fans domain. This product is ideal for CPUs that need more than a standard airflow performance and pressure. Noctua has included psychoacoustic optimizations such as vortex control notches. It has also added a new SCD drive system and a premium class SSO-Bearing in the NF-P12, allowing it to work completely quietly and to offer stability on a long-term basis. The Noctua NF-P12 has been released as a marquee product, and the idea is to aim at the market of next generation CPUs and processors.

What are the functionalities ?

The pressure optimized nine-blade design of the Noctua NF-P12 has been especially developed for high performance. The brand's previous computer fan was the NF-S12, but it was found to be slightly lacking when it came to handling applications that are of high impedance. With this new design, the NF-P12 is as mentioned above able to manage all those high-end applications. The vortex control notched in the Noctua NF-P12 helps to keep the noise down to an absolute minimum while offering superb performance. The running smoothness of this computer fan is also due to the new communication drive, which reduces the variations in torque. The Self-Stabilizing Oil-Pressure (SSO) bearing the Noctua NF-P12 also adds to the fan the ability to work quietly. This new technology also adds a lot of stability to the new Noctua fan. The Noctua NF-P12 has the dimensions 120x120x25 mm and works with a 3-pin connector. It has a rotational speed of 1300 RPM (1100 RPM with LNA and 900 RPM with ULNA), boasts of an airflow 92.3 m³/h (78.5 m³/h with LNA and 63.4 m³/h with ULNA) and has MTBF, which is in excess of 150.000 h.

How efficient is it ?

The Noctua NF-P12 is a highly efficient computer fan that can service applications with high demand, including CPU coolers, radiators for water-cooling, cases with restrictive fan grills and power supplies… All the difficulties that Noctua faced with its previous NF-S12 computer fan have been addressed in this one. It is an effective cooler that works without causing those irritating noises (there is a slight noise but it is barely discernible).

Conclusion: should I buy it ?

If you are not worried about spending money (the Noctua NF-P12 can be yours for 42 CAD) and want a noiseless computer fan, this is the product that you should seriously consider. With its superb airflow, the NF-P12 will ensure proper cooling for extended periods of time.
