I tried 140mm, 120mm, and 90mm Noctua fans before. I never tried the NF-F12 model but I wasn't THAT impressed with them.
In my opinion, the Thermalright TY140 when slowed down a bit is better than the 140mm Noctua. Gentle Typhoon AP-13/14 is better than the 120mm Noctua
I have nothing to compare the 90mm Noctua to but it didn't blow me away either.
