The NA-SEC1 chromax.black is a fan accessory set consisting of four NA-EC1 30cm extension cables. The NA-EC1’s 4-pin connectors are compatible with both 3-pin and 4-pin PWM fans and the cables can be daisy-chained in case more than a 30cm reach is required when installing fans in larger enclosures. Thanks to the black sleeving, the cables are ideal for creating PC builds with neat, focused aesthetics and are a perfect match for Noctua’s chromax edition fans.

NA-SEC1 chromax.black Review

A Noctua tipikusan az a gyártó, aki nem úszik az árral, ha a szükség úgy hozza. A folyadékhűtéses megoldások megjelenésével nem próbálta felvenni a harcot a konkurens gyártókkal, hanem inkább a meglévő léghűtéses processzorhűtőit tökéletesítette annak érdekében, hogy a vásárlók igényeit maximálisan kielégítsék. A komplett processzorhűtők mellett a ventilátorok terén is sokak számára bosszankodásra adott okot, hogy a kezdetek óta barna színösszeállítást használja a gyártó. A Noctua aztán engedett a gyeplőn és piacra dobta Redux sorozatát, valamint az industrialPPC sorozatét, mely színben eltért a megszokottól.
Test verdict: "Ezen is tovább lépve aztán létrejött a chromax elnevezés, mely olyan termékeket gyűjt össze melyekkel más színbe öltözhetnek a processzorhűtők, ventilátorok és egyéb kiegészítők." (Kocsis Bence, Rendszerigény.hu)

NA-SEC1 chromax.black Review

Ihr könnt es anhand der Bilder selber für euch entscheiden, aber wie wir finden, ist es Noctua gelungen, frischen Wind in ihre Produkte zu bringen. Der Wiedererkennungswert wird jetzt natürlich signifikant sinken, es ist kein beige/braun mehr zu finden bei den chromax Produkten. Allerdings werden jetzt nicht mehr nur performance-orientierte Kunden zu Noctua Produkten greifen, sondern es wird eine ganz neue Käuferschaft angesprochen. Gerade wo doch sehr viele Gehäuse auch mit Seitenfenster oder gehärtetem Glas ausgeliefert werden, will man natürlich sein System bestmöglich in Szene setzen.
Test verdict: "Noctua hat den Schritt endlich gewagt und bietet jetzt auch die Möglichkeit, etwas Farbe ins Spiel zu bringen." (Dennis Heinze, hardwarepoint.net)

NA-SEC1 chromax.black Review

Gli sdoppiatori e le prolunghe sono qualitativamente ottimi e utili da usare sia con le ventole di questa serie sia in qualsiasi altro PC. Le ventole della serie Chromax vantano la qualità che contraddistingue Noctua ma molto attente al design, con colorazione nera e la presenza dei pad colorati a spezzare e adattarle a qualsiasi build. Per ultimi le bellissime armature per i dissipatori! Grazie ad esse la personalizzazione della propria configurazione fa un grande balzo in avanti, permettendo inoltre con alcuni modelli di poter cambiare in corso d’opera la colorazione. Insomma un altro ottimo lavoro del produttore austriaco.
Test verdict: "La serie Chromax di Noctua è una vera e propria ventata di aria fresca da parte del produttore austriaco. Siamo abituati a considerare i loro prodotti qualitativamente superiori ma con design non proprio in corso coi tempi, da adesso quando parleremo di Noctua potremmo pensare anche ad un design “bello” e capace di adattarsi ai canoni estetici oramai richiesti dal mercato."

NA-SEC1 chromax.black Review

This level of customization is definitely expensive but it is worth it. Particularly for those who want to stick with the air cooler or even would want to use Chromax line of the fans and cables on the radiators for color customization. When it comes to the air coolers, the debate is on. Form over function or vice-versa. With the recent trends in the market there is a new definition which is Form with Function and this is where the Noctua has turned the table around for their coolers with their new Chromax add-ons which have allowed the users to color customize their fans, color customize their heatsinks to the extent that even the fan extension cables and the y-splitter cables are available in 6 colors for this level of the customization. The quality is top notch and why would it not be. After all, they are coming from the Noctua.
Test verdict: "With this level of the color customization, Noctua has turned their coolers and the fans all around and do we not love it, already! There is no surprise that the Noctua Chromax lineup has won our Must Have award." (Nauman Siddique, EnosTech.com)

NA-SEC1 chromax.black Review

Well, it's been a long time coming, but Noctua have finally realised that not everybody loves the plain aluminium aesthetic of their heat sinks, and the diarrhea brown coupled with prosthetic limb beige of their standard fans. yes it's taken a while, but my God have they hit the ball out of the park with the Chromax Range. You can now get black, white and colour swap Black heat sink covers for the top end Noctua Heat sinks, as well as their leading fans in black with a choice of colour coordinating anti vibration pads. Not only that, but you can top off the whole buiild with a choice of six colours for fan splitter and fan extension cables. We're not expecting the products in the range to be dirt cheap, but what we have learned is that with Noctua, you get the quality you pay for, so yeah, the fans may cost a few quid more than your average fan, but it is, after all, a Noctua fan.
Test verdict: "Thanks Noctua, Thanks a bunch!" (Gary Wain, Overclock3D.net)

NA-SEC1 chromax.black Review

Cable extensions might not be one of the first thought of upgrades for a system or PC build and hey, it might not wield any performance benefit, but the aesthetical advantage of having a clean, crisp and clear interior screams WORTH IT to me. With cable modding being pretty big business recently, companies like Noctua have been enter on this particular sector and let's be honest, they have been doing it rather well. While the NA-EC1 30cm extension cables provide extra reach in larger enclosures, the NA-YC1 y-cables make it possible to run two 4-pin PWM fans on a single fan header and to let the motherboard control the speed of both fans simultaneously. Noctua has recognized that many enthusiasts are just as concerned with looks as they are raw performance. Of course the option to have cables made to specific lengths, colour combinations and design schematics is very appealing to most.
Test verdict: "If you have a system and you want to revitalise it's interior look, or just want to inject some vibrancy into your system, then the cable kits are recommended!" (Ambrosidou Nat, XtremeSystems.org)

NA-SEC1 chromax.black Review

For most of the parts, the cables perform exceptionally well, providing beautiful and high quality colored sleeving. Offering the capability of daisy-chaining multiple cables extend the flexibility of the Chromax cables.
Test verdict: "Noctua Chromax Y-cables (NA-SYC1) and extension cables (NA-SEC1) are great additions to the existing lineup. Due to current trend about having RGB/more colors in every PC builds, the Chromax cables allow users more customization in matching each component's colors." (Chan Long Yin, Unboxing Treatment)
