P. S.

This looks rather like the other fan seen in the picture. Seems like Noctua got designs from Nidec, or are copying them.

The GT was an advance on this. When GT patents expire, others can build what amounts to GT's. Noctua is a retail outfit. If they can make and sell a GT, it'll be aimed at us. It would be nice to see them take the GT IP, with patents expired, and make a 140mm fan.

Nope, it wasn't, I double checked it (also it wasn't because the sound wasn't constant)

So, update. Noctua support replied in two days, asking me to perform some tests (like a fan tip is striking something, etc) and confirming, that replacement will take place if needed.
I answered that will wait for about two weeks and then tell them if I still need RMA.
By now there is no more sound from the fan after I dismounted it, tested in my hands and then mounted back, changing its position (90 degrees rotate). Don't know why, how and so on, but it's ok now for three days already. Feel happy:)

Overpriced a bit for assured quality and long warranty I didn't mind. White chroma customization, aesthetically priceless. smile.gif

I like it, was catching up on a few threads smile.gif

Glad to hear support went smoothly. Money well spent then. thumb.gif

Just randomly found this thread (Noctua fanboy&owner anyways)

I'll just leave here soundcheck of stresstested colleagues CPU build filled with Noctuas. That experience convinced me even more. Even without panels its literally dead silent. How that just doesnt make any noise? Amazing.

Hi , need some honest input from the owners of the Noctua industrial fans: is the clicking sounds inherent with the new line or is that just an RMA fault that multiple people seem to be complaining about, and, if it is inherent, is it an annoying sound?


Background: I have had Noctua fans since my 2011/12 build (case fan NF F12's and an NH-D14 cooler) but it is time for an upgrade so I was considering finally going water, well, until I sat back and reflected on what I really liked about my build, and after what seemed like an elongated epiphany, I had it, it was the fan roar.

I JUST LOVE THE SOUND OF MY NOCTUAs! (Especially when you turn on your computer and hear the fans understatedly roar at max for a split second).

So I was so excited to see that in the mean time, they had introduced the black (I still have not acquired an affinity for the biege colours however even though I had looked at them every day for 5 years ). But after searching for sound tests online, I have come across multiple instances of people complaining/demonstrating the whirring sounds of the new industrial fans. I really hope they did not change their signature sound, after all it is such qualities that sells high end car - if acoustics did not matter then Porsche/BMW etc. would not need to pay through their noses for sound engineers to keep their signature sounds.


So, to the owners of the industrial 2k/3k fans, can you hear those clicking/whirring sounds, and if so, do you think they bring down the quality of the fan acoustics?


Thanks

One way to improve your air cooling is to remove your rear grill. See #2 and #7 in my sig for examples. Cover the cut edges with the plastic spines from report covers. If you add a third fan to your Noctua heatsink you can lower the rpm on all of them and enjoy a quieter case. The PWM lets them roar when they need to work.
