anyone have experience with Noctua NF-A14 industrialPPC-3000 PWM 140mm Fan ??

Go to solution Solved by Lyfie,

What is the point of buying a 3000rpm fan and running it at 1500?  You just pay extra money for a more powerful motor, which you will not use. The blades are essentially the same as in retail NF-A14, so you will get the same airflow at 1500rpm on both models. Noise might be actually worse on the Industrial version at the same rpm, because of a more massive motor.

 

Here is a nice overview table of their products that proves my point:

Hi guys

 

Have anyone have experience with Noctua NF-A14 industrialPPC-3000 PWM 140mm Fan - Good? Bad? Loud? Overkill?

https://noctua.at/en/nf-a14-industrialppc-3000-pwm

 

3 of them in a tall tower, 2 intake 1 exhaust and 2x120mm Corsair AIO exhaust top fans - the 3 Noctua NF-A14 will be controlled by a Corsair Commander Pro and ICue.

The 2x120mm Corsair AIO fans controlled by Corsair Link (Maybe change to ICue)

 

 Noctua makes solid products, whish I had bought Noctua NH-D15 chromax.black, instead of the Corsair AIO waterloop

They're extremely noisy.

The Redux fans are gray, but if you want black maybe look at bequiet silent wings.

Thanks for your input Enderman

 

I want the Noctua NF-A14 IPPC-3000, because of the 269,3 m³/h Airflow at max capacity So i will run it at 1500 rpm, roughly ½ the speed, ½ the noise and still get 130 m³/h Airflow

And still have the possibility to increase RPM and Airflow. Can you follow my way of thinking, and do you believe my assumptions about the fan are correct???

 

I knew I should have studied engineering, instead of joining the Army, somehow the skills you acquire in the Army, do not carry well over into civilian life 🤔

Yeah, assuming you have a good fan controller, you should be able to run them much slwoer.

Even half speed will be loud though, but maybe that's just me.

I run my fans at 500rpm 🙂
