[TPU] Noctua Announces 3 new 140mm Fans - Page 4

post #31 of 47
the mobo set that comes to mind that works better with noctuas would be asus sabertooth's. other than that, if you have a large motherboard with a heavy influence of like dark blue or red, its harder to get the fans into the color scheme.

I'm sure I am part of the huge minority on OCN, but I don't care at all what it looks like inside my case. I don't ever look inside besides the times I clean it, and or I'm replacing parts.

Nice to see Noctua releasing new fans. Might try the NF-A15 PWM on my D14.

I wonder how the NF-A14 FLX fans stack up against the 140mm 1700rpm Noiseblocker fans on the NZXT Kraken x60.

As for the NF-A15 PWM other than PWM function the static pressure is on par with my GELID Wing 14 ($20.99) which costs less than Noctua's overpriced, over technical marketing crap.

You have summed it up well, Noctua is the Apple of the fan market (with out the law suits). Most tests I have seen show the Noctua under preforming of in terms sound and cooling.

Personaly, I am glad to see a company take a chance with introducing new tech on a old design. As far as the color palette. I mentioned before, that it is for brand recognition. NO OTHER company has a similarily colored product. Noctua probably even has those colors trademarked. I concur that function over form is more important, and I agree that Noctua has been beaten in certain tests, however value is a consideration, and a 6 year warranty on a fan is pretty generous. The bearing life is good, the rubberized mounting is beneficial to some, and the accessory pack is outstanding. Yes, you pay a little more, but you get a little more. Looking at the shoulders of the inlets, they appear a little exaggerated, but surely cut down on the boundary effect.

I know, some people have trouble accepting that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For instance, many PC cases look horrendous to me, yet I like Noctua fans a lot. Looking at some of the builds here with flashy LEDs and other garish bling, I have to hold my tongue.

I will never be interested in these fans simply because they are brown, I don't care how well they perform. Of all colors, why brown? Stupid decision IMO. Have you ever seen a brown Ferrari or Lamborghini? Me either...
