Loud noctua nf-f12's...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I received 2 nf-f12s today but I am rather disappointed by the noise level. They are significantly louder than my nf-p12s and don't seem to push anywhere near as much air. the only noise I hear from the p12s is air movement, no motor but the f-12s im getting a lot of motor noise. both f12s sound exactly the same. does this sound normal? I also received a nf-b9 which seems to be as quiet as the p12s and also blowing much more air than both p12s and f12s

no, sorry I was wrong. they sounded really loud because i had them on my desk, if i hold it in the air they are only a little louder than the p12s. im not sure how to do it but can someone please close this thread? tongue.gif

sorry bout that doh.gif

EDIT: ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

edit: but the airflow is still the same, it just seems to be spinning in front of my palm with barely a breeze
