On low RPM you can hear the motor and it makes an annoying sound but you can only hear that if you move your ear right up to the fan

On full RPM the fan moves a good amount of air and its very quiet
So i will say its the best 140mm i had so far but that is not saying much compared to the crap 140mm fans i have had before

Wow. No replies in almost a month!


Vienna, February 12th 2013 - Noctua today presented the new, third generation of its signature S12 series quiet case fans, which have received more than 250 awards and recommendations from the international press. Featuring a further refined blade design with Anti-Stall Knobs that works in tandem with the new AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) frame, the NF-S12A improves the airflow/noise efficiency of its renowned predecessor by up to 8%.
Quote:
Introduced in 2006, the original NF-S12 became a cornerstone of our reputation as one of the leading manufacturers of premium quality quiet fans. The second generation NF-S12B, introduced in 2009, continued this tradition with an even better airflow to noise ratio, making it one of our most popular models of all time", says Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "We've been working on the next generation for about three years and now we're thrilled to be able to present a worthy successor with the new NF-S12A: The new Anti-Stall Knobs and our AAO type frame allowed us to squeeze out another 8% in airflow to noise efficiency!

The NF-S12A's novel Anti-Stall Knobs reduce flow separation phenomena in medium to high impedance situations and thereby increase the fan's stall margin. This means that the NF-S12A is even more versatile than its renowned predecessor and can achieve better performance on heatsinks and radiators. Noctua's AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) frames feature integrated anti-vibration pads as well as Noctua's proprietary Stepped Inlet Design and Inner Surface Microstructures, both of which further refine the fan's performance/noise efficiency.

Three models will be available upon launch: While the NF-S12A FLX version provides 1200/900/700rpm speed settings via the supplied Low-Noise Adaptors in order to give you full flexibility in fine-tuning the fan for maximum ventilation performance or near-silent operation, the NF-S12A ULN version provides super-slow 800/600rpm speed settings for ultra-low-noise applications and highly noise-sensitive users. The NF-S12A PWM sports Noctua's custom designed NE-FD1 IC for fully automatic speed control via 4-pin fan headers and comes with a Low-Noise-Adaptor to reduce the maximum speed during PWM control from 1200 to 900rpm.

All three models employ the further optimised second generation of Noctua's renowned, time-tested SSO bearing and use CNC milled brass bearing shells in order to guarantee the highest possible degree of manufacturing precision, minimum tolerance and excellent long-term stability. Like all Noctua fans, the NF-S12A models have an MTBF rating of more than 150.000 hours and come with a full 6 years manufacturer's warranty.

Pricing and availability
The new NF-S12A fans will be available immediately at recommended retail prices of EUR 19.90 / USD 21.90.

Hello everybody.
Please add me in...





My tiny rig in FD define R4 (i know Ifone photos are just crap biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif )

I've planned to replace my two NF-P14 non PWM by two TY-141 (gently waiting at home for 1x4-pin to 2x4-pin adapter before installation).

For those who have changed these fans by PWM fans, i really need a little to see if i'm right or not

Nice man! I've always wanted that cooler. But since I had the Gemini cooler and some noctua fans, decided to use it instead. Still want one though.

I recently bought a NH-U9B SE, there are black and blue fan connectors and there is a Y-Splitter. I have very small ITX board so I just used the Y-Splitter and plug the 2 92mm into the system fan connection on my motherboard.

Is this the way it should be done or should I use the black/blue fan connectors?

Thank you

The y-splitter is just in case you have two fans to connect to one fan header of your MoBo (CPU-FAN for example)
The black/blue fan connectors are the L.N.A (Low Noise Adapter) and U.L.N.A (Ultra Low Noise Adapter); they're used if you want your fans running to lower speed (9V or 7V instead of the 12V delivered by the header).

So does it means that if I don't use the black or the blue connector I'm using 12v on my fans? does it make it spin faster?

Except if your CPU-FAN header can be voltage-controlled by the BIOS rather than PWM controlled, you fans will spin at full RPM if you don't use the Low Noise Adapters.
On my Sabertooth, the two NF-P14 are running at 1250 rpm and cannot be controlled as they are plugged in CPU-FAN.

So if the fan is running at full RPM all the time does it mean it's not good? Its currently running at 1.7K RPM why do I need to throttle it down to 1.3K (black) or 1K (blue)?? Is is just because it consumes higher power? Or is there any other reason
