Noctua Club! I have several Noctua 140mm Redux fans, but just bought a Noctua CPU cooler, NH-12L. Works great on a i5-4690 in a Fractal Node 605 case. Very quiet, easy to mount, keeps the temps at 55°C or less with the CPU under 100% load during encoding.

Seems strange that both fans are blowing down, I'd think that blowing up would work better, but all the pics/literature I've seen have them pointing down. Working fine, so that's the bottom line. I've since added another 120mm Noctua 3 pin fan in the blank opening next to the CPU cooler, intake, blowing cool air on the cooler.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
In my experience pulling air through cooler away from motherboard rather than pushing air toward motherboard. Try it and see which works best for you.

Question on Noctua NF-F12 iPPC 2000 PWM fan.

Hey all. I know these fans are optimized for radiator application, but will these work well as case fans, too? I plan to install these in my Caselab STH10 case (3 in front and 1 at the rear of the case)

Thanks...Al

Curious. Why did you go with different rpm fans as oppose to the same rpms for both type of fans?

Ok thanks.

I posted a thread, but thought I'd ask here since it's a Noctua thread.

I am building a new PC (see build list below) and will be using the Nemisis Black Ice 480 and 560 GTX radiators to cool the i7 5930k and 2x 980 ti. I can't decide between the NF-F12 iPPC 2000 or 3000 PWM fan (480 rad) or the NF-A14 iPPC-2000 or 3000 PWM fan (560 rad). I will be using the Aquaero 6 fan controller to control all fans in the case. I've checked the reviews and the reviewers (end users and tech reviewers) give these pretty high marks. Additionally, I've listened to sound test on you tube, but that can be misleading because of the various methods and quality of sound used, I am set on the Noctua fans, but not sure if I should go with 2000 and 3000 rpms. I plan to use a few as case fans, too. I just need to get some feedback from those that may have used both types and can provide some insight. I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks

I am building a new PC (see build list below) and will be using the Nemisis Black Ice 480 and 560 GTX radiators to cool the i7 5930k and 2x 980 ti. I can't decide between the NF-F12 iPPC 2000 or 3000 PWM fan (480 rad) or the NF-A14 iPPC-2000 or 3000 PWM fan (560 rad). I will be using the Aquaero 6 fan controller to control all fans in the case. I've checked the reviews and the reviewers (end users and tech reviewers) give these pretty high marks. Additionally, I've listened to sound test on you tube, but that can be misleading because of the various methods and quality of sound used, I am set on the Noctua fans, but not sure if I should go with 2000 and 3000 rpms. I plan to use a few as case fans, too. I just need to get some feedback from those that may have used both types and can provide some insight. I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks


Specs: (major parts of the build list)

Case: Caselab STH10
CPU: 5930k
MB: MSI X99A Xpower AC??? (waiting on reviews of the new MB)
GPU: 2x 980 Ti
PSU: EVGA 1200 P2

The 120's,I would get the 2000RPM... The 140's are loud @ about 2200RPM, but I have headset & it doesn't affect me. I would say non-pwn since you're using a fan controller.. I had Corsair SP 2000RPM & the Noctuas have dropped temps by 5 degrees @ least. I think the 140's play the biggest part. Far as the motherboard, I love it. I'm thinking about getting the MSI Godlike Carbon though...
