With only having 2 hard drives.....why the heck I need 2 hard drive cages ? [housing 4 each]

Yank both of them out....and gave the 120's direct access. There's NO doubt airflow increased

Nice clean rig. I bet you do push a ton of air.

Working on updating the thread. The new format tanked some of the links and such.

Hey guys, first post but I've been lurking for quite some time biggrin.gif

I bought a couple NF-F12s and replaced the P12 that was on the back of my case. Dropped my case & CPU temps a couple degrees and it is only slightly louder. With the LNA @ 1200 RPM it is silent and seems about on par with the P12, albeit with slightly higher pressure. I think I'll keep it with the LNA for a bit as all I can hear now from my case is the rush of air.

Because of it's much higher static pressure the F12 should outperform the P12 in many common applications, such as adding resistance to either side of the fan, like a filter, HD cage, radiator or what have you. Also if you have a restricted airflow setup (i.e. not enough intake or case openings to match outtake CFM) the F12 will pull more air than most 120mm fans and do it pretty quietly. In a positive airflow setup, it should also push better. To me, this is its biggest advantage along with it's PWM capability.

Yes, the F12 is louder than the P12, but only a little and you get a significant increase in static pressure performance. Even with the LNA, pressure is higher than the P12. I'd say if you're into Noctua fans, it's a worthy upgrade.

Welcome to OCN. If you are planning on staying we'd love to see your rig And I can ad you to the list. I'm also interested in the F12s. Just gotta find a buyer for my P12s and a retailer for F12's

Ohh can i join this club too.

I Love this cooler bloody brilliant but I'll porbably get hated on for getting the Thermalright TY-140's, got them for the PWM control and i wanted a nice side fan for my case, so I used the Noctuas for the rear and side:)

Then put new fans on the Best cooler in history IMO

Well i'm very happy with those fans and they ramp down via PWM connection when not under load and i cant even here them.

I'll get it posted sometime soon. Although it's a few years old, it still gets the job done and my overclocked 4870 is still a great performer. I asked for a Noctua CPU cooler for Xmas so I can do some overclocking in that arena as well.

The P12 is a great fan to have around as a spare. I put it in my PSU, problem solved. It moves waaay more air than the old fan over the heatsinks, makes me wonder why I didn't do it before.
