How loud are Noctua iPPC-2000 140mm fans?

Go to solution Solved by WoodenMarker,

Chromax is quieter even at the same rpm. If you're aiming for quiet, there's no point looking at iPPC's.

gonna get a 140mm Noctua fan for an upcoming build, thinking either the Chromax 140mm, or the iPPC 2000, If the Noctua isn't that loud at 2000, I would probably get that, but if it is loud, I would just save some money if I'm never going to run them at 2000rpm. I would like to hear from you guys who have iPPC fans how loud they are. Also, which one I should get, Chromax, or iPPC.

If you are looking for dead silence the Chromax would be your best option, the iPPC fans are not what I would call silent even when dialed back.

if they're running slowly I can't even hear them. In my big rig I have 2 on the back, in the small rig it has 3 on the radiator, 2 on the front, and 2 on the bottom. The D5 pump is louder than the fans.

My dual 140mm iPPC 3k, runs at 2k rpm. Since my noise tolerance is high so I have no problems with them, for you and most of the people the iPPC maybe too loud..

You will hear them as it starts get loud at over 1800 rpm

Have 10 2k and 3k noctua's. They are louder than id like but I never run them more than 1k. Have some phanteks that run at 2k and they are super quiet. But the airflow if the noctuas are much better along with the looks, which is why I bought them.
