NOCTUA Fans

Recommended Posts

Noctua fans are great but whether they're the best solution or not depends on what you want to use the fan for, your priorities, and budget. 

They have arguably the best 120mm fan in the form of the NF-A12x25.

If you mean Noctua coolers then they are package. As such fans are at par with many other premium brands.

Over-hyped. It comes from a time when sleeve bearings were the norm. Price difference to Arctic p12:s is insane, you can get a five pack of those or two noctua redux fans. Performance difference is nowhere near to justify the price gap.

I just use old industrial fans, they seem to be as good or better than what everyone else uses when they are at  5v or 7v.. at 12v they are hair dryers.

On the other hand, Noctua's thing has been low operating noise and high performance. With cheaper fans you usually have to give in some in one of those. Not saying that Arctic would be bad, but just few years ago the difference between €20 Noctua and €13 Bitfenix fans was very noticeable.
