Fan controller biggrin.gif I just bought five Noctua fans. Good, quiet and solid fans. Love them!

For high-impedance fans, you can do better and quieter.
Smash, don't read anything deeper into my post than what was there. Noctua fans are just okay. In my own experience with Noctuas and Gentle Typhoons, the only advantage the P12s had is nicely sleeved cables.

You called him out...stating that he had never held one and that he only looked in a passing glance...

For intensive purposes Brutuz is right the build quality is second to none.......I can say this also....5x P12's and Had 3 x P14 FLX's.... I have had a few DELTA, NMB, ADDA , PanaFlow and now Power logic fans, all of which are industrial fans. I have had fans from CoolerMaster and arctic(Hardened Styrene) cooling.

I find that the build quality of the Noctua is far above anything that I have seen or felt (quality) wise in the average consumer range...... You made it about performance when we merely mentioned quality...

Also another fan to add the ThermalRight TY-140, even Brutuz may recall me saying "damn these feel "cheap" and plasticy" When I went from Noctua fans to other brands, I was like damn these feel cheap..

Another point "Off Topic"

I remember the first Delta's I owned, I had heard so much about them.......I was stoked....When I got them, I looked at them and compared them to "cheap" case fans but more powerful...I mean they really feel cheap....But that being said they did serve me well and I am looking to replace all my fans with dual BB fans.......Koolance, I see an order coming your way for some 140x25mm fans soon.....

But I really didn't read too much into your post, only the part where you called him out for not having Noctua fans, then him proving otherwise.........derp.

According to Jakob at Noctua these won't be ready for 12-18 months anyway, they're still very much in development.

Looks pretty awesome, but expensive as all get out. Who is gonna pay 30-40 per fan for this?

Disappointed that watching the video didn't give any clues to what technology is behind the noise cancellation. I guess I'll wait until they come out and see if there's anything more on it.

This is the sort of technology behind the noise cancellation

Active Noise Cancellation works by emitting a sound wave of the noise at the same amplitude with an inverted phase, thereby cancelling out the noise’s sound wave.

As for the colour...I couldn't care less. I would rather look at my screen than my cases insides.
Just as I finish checking out prices for a bunch of lowRPM Noctua's for use in a dedicated file-server for a friend...Nice.

Absolutely agree. I in fact never look at the inside of my case unless I decide to give it a good clean or i'm putting in parts, changing TIM.

Exact same thing the headphones use then. So there must be an integrated mic and speaker somewhere.

As for build quality...You get good (for from factory) sleeving on the wires, low voltage adapters, etc all of which are made superbly; with GTs you get a small box, the fan and 4 screws. They also feel cheaper overall.

I only commented that I doubt you have much time comparing both, not that you did not own both. With that said, quality is not what all comes in the package; those are niceties and great customer service. I have nothing but good things to say about my experiences with Noctua and their products, but their fans are, in today's market, only average. They are just extremely well-hyped. The 'feel cheaper' I'll address below...

Wrong. I called him out that he could not have had much hands-on time with the two fans in question, not that he did not have them at all. Owning is not synonymous with using. Brutuz owns the fans, but given how he appears to define 'quality' (fan feel and package contents), I question his judgement of the quality of Noctua fans. Derp indeed.

You can wordsmith the difference between commercial and industrial fans all you want, but the fact is, fan-to-fan, there are many better fans than Noctuas for both low- and high-impedance fans. What do we typically talk about when discussing fan quality? Consistency, durability, performance, and reliability or look, feel, and packaging? There is a reason that Noctua fans are not at present used in industrial applications. There is a reason knowledgeable people on this forum (you've spent enough time in the air cooling subforum to know them too) are using fans other than Noctuas.

I do have to agree with BBEG, there are better fans on the market than Noctua ones. Noctua fan do their job but most fans and can be made (or bought) to be silent or quiet anyway, so nothing special.

In my opinion the stuff they say on the box is nothing more than marketing dribble and that applies to all fans. Most good fans you would not be able to tell the difference between them in terms of noise and performance, if there is a difference it is very very small.

I don't understand why people whine all the time about the colour of fans, what matters is the noise, performance, price and accessories nothing else. I don't care about fancy boxes as they will be going in a cupboard (if there is a warranty) or the bin.

So many haters of the color scheme, I think they're the best looking fans out there!
