Which 120mm fan?

Noctua’s 120mm fans are premium quality solutions that have been thoroughly optimised to achieve the best possible results in specific fields of application. Each of the three models works fine in all typical environments, so you can’t go wrong with either of them, but choosing the model that is best suited for your application can help you to obtain even better results:

NF-S12A NF-P12 NF-F12
Case Ventilation
Heatsink & Radiator Performance
Quietness

NF-S12A: The NF-S12A has been optimised for “low impedance” applications that don’t require high static pressure and thus combines moderate pressure with outstanding airflow and superb quietness of operation. Choose the NF-S12A for case ventilation, applications with little or no obstruction to airflow as well as all other applications where minimum noise emission has first priority.

NF-P12: The NF-P12 has been designed with more pressure demanding “high impedance” applications in mind. It provides an even balance of high static pressure, high airflow and excellent quietness, which has made it a standard choice for low noise CPU cooling, cases with tight fan grills and other low noise cooling applications with mid- to high airflow resistance.

NF-F12: The NF-F12’s unique Focused Flow™ system produces extremely high static pressure and focuses the airflow in order to achieve even better results on air cooling heatsinks and water cooling radiators. With a top speed of 1500rpm, it also offers more performance headroom for less noise-sensitive applications. Choose the NF-F12 if you’re looking for the best possible performance on heatsinks and radiators.

Test verdict: "Po pravilu, kao i svaki drugi sjajan Noctua proizvod, tako ćemo i ova dva kulera nagraditi sa 'PCAXE Diamond' priznanjem. U pratnji te nagrade dolazi i "PCAXE Advanced Design" jer su oba kulera dizajnirana tako da nemaju otisak veći od 95x95cm, zbog čega nude neverovatno otvorenu kompatibilnost."

Test verdict: "With the popularity of MiniITX motherboards there has been a push for companiles to make smaller computer cases. As these cases shrink to take advantage of the smaller form factor it becomes increasingly difficult to find a good aftermarket heatsink that not only cools well but, can fit in a half height computer chassis. The Noctua NH-L9x65 is designed to take advantage of this niche and offers up a viable replacement for the OEM coolers from Intel and AMD." (Dennis Garcia, HardwareAsylum.com)

Test verdict: "Volvemos a tener una solución más que buena para nuestro ordenador de pequeño tamaño, PC de bajo consumo, HTPC o similar, y si viene de parte de Noctua, conocida por su buen hacer y eficiencia, pues más que una solución se trata de una recomendación. Excelente sistema de montaje, piezas de calidad, buen rendimiento para tratarse de un disipador de perfil bajo, compatibilidad con todos los sockets actuales, deja espacio para operar y para módulos de RAM altos, y todo ello por un precio aproximado de 45 euros, algo más caro que un disipador de perfil bajo convencional, pero ya sabemos que los precios de Noctua suelen despuntar un poco respecto a otras marcas."
