Noctua NH-12 for $4, good deal?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I went to a local computer recycling shop a few days ago to see if I could find a lan party board floating around some where. Sadly, I didn't find that, but talking to the guy at the counter, I noticed a NH-12 sitting on the back bench. I asked him how much he wanted for it, and was surprised to hear $4. Knowing Noctua's a pretty well known company I jumped on the chance to buy and, and left him my mobile to call me if they got more.

What do those fans normally sell for used? The egg has them listed for $24.99, so already I feel good about getting it for $4, but I'm wondering what sort of deal I got in comparison to buying one used some where else.

I already bought it, even left them a note to call when they got more. I was just wondering what they normally sell for used as a comparison to what I had paid for the one I've got now. smile.gif

$12-15 used, so you still saved 66-75%. Yay!

Not too shabby!

They've been calling me on a few things, and said they have a few systems they think may have more in them. Hopefully I'll get a call back tomorrow saying they've found a lot of them so I can fill my Cosmos with them and get it quieted down some.
