Noctua NF-P12 impressions. Holy crap! - Page 2

post #11 of 35
They look nice but are very expensive, right now I have a Scythe Slipstream. But, when I go to order new fans, I will look into them.

Yeah. And by the way, after you have the Noctua fans for a while, you start to like the color scheme. Who'd have thought I'd like flesh tone and brown colored fans.

I love these fans as well. I picked up 2 for my 300 from MicroCenter for $35 a piece. Even at that price, they're awesome fans! I tried to replace ultra kaze 2000rpm fan (at 1600) on my TRUE with one of them, but all it bought me was an extra 5C under load :-/ If I wasn't so happy with the Slipstream Y1225SL12Ms in the rest of my case, I'd probably replace them all with these. Definitely wonderful fans.

You really have to compare them side by side with another fan to note the difference. Next to one of my Slipstreams, I can easily note the reduction in volume and tone of the fan in open air. The biggest difference in volume can be noted against a grille though.

That's why I got the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 instead of the TRUE. The HDT-S1283 is supposed to perform better than a TRUE with low airflow.

I would really be interested in a pair of 140s but they don't seem to carry those... I would love to replace my 140 outtake fan . Its noise and it only has molex connectors. What do you expect from fans that came with the case I guess...
post #18 of 35
These fans are cracking. I replaced all my case fans with them, and bought the Noctua CPU Cooler too, which also does absolute wonders.

Bite the bullet and fork out the cash for them, you wont regret it.

too bad the color scheme is so ugly

i don't know why everyone is always complaining about the colour, i quite like the colour of the Noctua fans. certainly better then some other colour combinations they could've picked!
