The NA-SFMA1 is a set of two NA-FMA1 fan mounting adaptors that permit the installation of the NF-A12x25 and several other Noctua 120mm fans on 140mm watercooling radiators (or other screw-mount applications that are designed for 140mm fans, e.g. as a case fan). Thanks to the superior efficiency of the NF-A12x25 fan, the NA-SFMA1 thereby enables users to boost the performance of their 140mm radiators by replacing the stock fans with NF-A12x25s. In addition to the two adaptors, the NA-SFMA1 includes eight NA-AV4 anti-vibration mounts, which give the extra benefit of damping any minute vibrations that might otherwise be transferred to the radiator and on to the PC case.
Caution: the NA-SFMA1 has been specifically designed to ensure an optimal fit of the NF-A12x25 fan on watercooling radiators. It is also compatible with the NF-F12, NF-S12A and NF-P12 redux models as well as some 120mm fans from other manufacturers, but due to the special adaption to the NF-A12x25’s frame shape, not all 120mm fans fit. The NA-SFMA1 can be used for other screw-mount applications such as installing the NF-A12x25 in 140mm case fan placements, but may not work with 140mm applications that feature different methods of mounting (e.g. CPU coolers with custom fan clips).

Boosting 140mm radiator performance with the NF-A12x25

Boosting 140mm radiator performance with the NF-A12x25

Noctua’s novel NF-A12x25 120mm fan has been thoroughly optimised for superior performance on mid to high impedance applications such as watercooling radiators and effectively outperforms many 140mm fans. The NA-SFMA1 thus allows the performance of 140mm-based all-in-one (AIO) or custom (DIY) watercooling systems to be boosted by replacing the fans with NF-A12x25s.
Dual pack for two fans

Dual pack for two fans

The NA-SFMA1 set includes 2 NA-FMA1 adaptors and 8 NA-AV4 anti-vibration mounts for installing two fans, thereby enabling users to set up either a single 140mm radiator in a push/pull configuration or a dual 140mm (280mm) radiator with two NF-A12x25 fans.
Vibration-free fan mount

The included NA-AV4 anti-vibration mounts damp any minute vibrations that may otherwise be transferred to the radiator and on to the PC case, which makes the NA-SFMA1 a great choice not only for those seeking to boost the performance of their 140mm watercoolers but also for silent enthusiasts who aim to reduce vibrations and resonances.
Easy installation

Easy installation

Installing NF-A12x25 fans on 140mm radiators using the NA-FMA1 is child’s play: Pull the supplied anti-vibration mounts through the adaptor’s fan mounting holes, fix the adaptor to the radiator using the original screws, put the fan on the assembly and pull the tips of the anti-vibration mounts through its mounting holes – done!
6-year manufacturer’s warranty

6-year manufacturer’s warranty

The NA-FMA1 adaptors are made from the same high-grade, fibreglass reinforced PBT material that is used for most of Noctua’s fans, which makes it just as sturdy as a Noctua fan frame. Like all Noctua products, the entire NA-SFMA1 set comes with a full 6-year manufacturer’s warranty.

NA-SFMA1 Review

We have tested the Noctua NF-SFMA1 on the NZXT Kraken X62. NZXT has provided AER P 140mm fans with this cooler. The rated speed of the NZXT AER P 140 is 500 ~ 1800 +/- 300 RPM. Noise level rating is 21 – 38 dBA. Fan operates on 12V DC and draws 0.35A with an input power of 4.20W. These fans are PWM design with 4-pin PWM power connector. For comparison, we have tested the fans for which these brackets are designed in particular aka NF-A12x25. We have tested the PWM version of these fans. Their rated speed is 2000 +/- 10% RPM with sound level 22.6 dBA. Static pressure rating is 2.34 mmH2O. [...] The idle temps using the NZXT AER P were 1.99°C whereas the idle temps were 1.83°C with the Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM. This is a marginal difference but keep in mind these are 120mm Noctua fans vs NZXT 140mm fans and noise level difference is huge between both fans. Real comparison will come from the under load temps. Under load, the NZXT Kraken X62 was doing 38.83°C. With Noctua NF-A12x25 fans, the Kraken X62 was doing 38.5°C. Again we note a marginal difference but this is a significant boost in the performance from the 120mm fans using the 140mm bracket. Please, note that there is a 1 ~ 1.5m,m gap between the 120mm fans and the radiator when using this bracket. Against all odds, the fans have delivered a powerful punch.
Test verdict: "Against all odds the might and prime of the Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM outclass the competition in the noise-to-performance ratio. This goes to show that Noctua has brought out an accessory that would be a lethal cooling solution when coupled with their new generation NF-A12x25 (PWM/FLX) fans" (Nauman Siddique, EnosTech.com)

NA-SFMA1 Review

NF-A12x25 ventilatori donose neke nove tehnologije i materijale, a uz odlične radne karakteristike i zadovoljavajuće nisku radnu buku. Ovo je svakako najtiši ventilator na 2.000 okretaja koji smo čuli, a uz vrlo respektabilne brojke propusnosti i statičkog pritiska. Kao i uvijek, potrudili su se izbaciti nekoliko modela kako bi svatko pronašao opciju za sebe, a sve dolaze po istoj cijeni. Cijena kod Noctue nikada nije bila niska, a to je pogotovo tako kod premium proizvoda, pa A12x25 ventilatori koštaju preporučenih 29.99 €. Ako ih poželite ugraditi na 140-milimetarska mjesta, SFMA1 adapter s dva okvira će vas koštati 11.90 €. Za one koji ne žele izdvojiti za nove ventilatore, razveselit će činjenica kako se dobri stari P12 modeli u Redux seriji prodaju po prihvatljivih 13.90 € bez obzira na izvedbu.
Test verdict: "Neupitno je kako je Noctua oduvijek bila sinonim za kvalitetu, inovativnost i pouzdanost, a to i dalje potvrđuju novim serijama proizvoda koje izbacuju." (Krešimir Matanović, PC Ekspert)

NA-SFMA1 Review

Wszystkie pokazane dzisiaj konstrukcje są godne polecenia. Wersja Redux jest głośna, ale także dosyć wydajna. Brakuje jej jednak dodatków czy nakładek na boki – trzeba wtedy dokupić nakładki Chromax. Nowe śmigła NF-A12x25 fascynują jakością wykonania oraz kulturą pracy. Sprawdzą się one świetnie w obudowie, jak i na chłodnicy. Na podobnym poziomie głośności są wydajniejsze od konkurencji, więc wynik jest znakomity. Wszystkie przedstawione dzisiaj produkty polecam, bo naprawdę warto się nimi zainteresować.

NA-SFMA1 Review

Das Fazit zum Lüfteradapter fällt kurz und knapp aus. Für 10€ bekommt man zwei 140 mm Rahmen (NF-FMA1), die direkt auf den neuen A12x25 120 mm Lüfter zugeschnitten sind. Dazu gibt es entsprechend acht Gummipuffer (NA-AV4) für die Montage der A-Serie Lüfter.
Test verdict: "Alles in allem gut verarbeitet, passt und macht das was es verspricht." (Dennis Heinze, hardwarepoint.net)

NA-SFMA1 Review

Sin duda, nada más ver estos ventiladores nos queda claro que estamos ante calidad Noctua, tanto en el material de la fabricación (se nota material de calidad, no como con los ventiladores negros genéricos) como, cuando los conectemos, en el rendimiento y en la sonoridad. Cada modelo tiene su diseño característico en las aspas según la finalidad de la gama del ventilador. Los ventiladores NF-A12x25 tienen una apariencia bastante más bonita debido a que son los típicos que colocaremos en la caja o en otras partes más a la vista. Por el contrario, los NF-P12 Redux tienen un diseño más rudimentario al ser ventiladores enfocados a la refrigeración de radiadores o disipadores, lugares donde no es tan importante lo visual como el rendimiento. Si estamos buscando un ventilador para introducir, o sacar, aire de nuestro ordenador, los Noctua NF-A12x25 son la mejor opción que podemos encontrar. Además, gracias a sus soportes de goma podremos montarlos en el ordenador reduciendo al mínimo las vibraciones. En caso de tener una RL y querer un ventilador que rinda al máximo y aporte una mayor presión de aire, entonces debemos optar por los NF-P12 Redux, aunque estos ventiladores harán más ruido y también son más propensos a vibraciones debido a que solo vienen con tornillos.
Test verdict: "Por todo ello, hemos decidido dar a estos ventiladores Noctua nuestro galardón de platino." (Rubén Velasco, HardZone.es)

NA-SFMA1 Review

Le nuove ventole Noctua vantano caratteristiche e qualità da vendere sotto tutti i punti di vista. Le nuove NF-A hanno un rapporto qualità prestazioni ottimo, con un bundle di prima scelta che di certo fa alzare il prezzo. Non si compra una ventola ma tutta una serie di accessori di qualità che rendono l’acquisto ancora più sensato. Le prestazioni della P12 da 1700 RPM sono eccezionali sotto ogni punto di vista, con un ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo e una colorazione che le rendono adatte a qualsiasi build.
Test verdict: "Tutti i prodotti oggi recensiti sono degni di nota e del massimo dei voti." (Mauro Santoro, HWready.it)

NA-SFMA1 Review

Avusturya merkezli Noctua senelerce sessiz ve kaliteli soğutma ürünleriyla karşımıza çıktı. Firmanın beğenilen NF-A12 serisi kasa fanları aynı zamanda işlemci soğutucularıyla da geliyor. Bu fan ailesi kısa süre önce yenilendi ve firmanın geliştirdiği Sterrox LCP (likit kristal polimer) adlı özel malzemeye yer verir hale geldi.
Test verdict: "Hız değerleri ve PWM desteği olup olmaması kolayca anlaşılabiliyor. Tümü 13.9 Avro olan bu yeni modellerin standart modellere kıyasla yarı yarıya ucuz olması bazı kullanıcıların ilgisini çekebilir." (Gorkem Yildirim, Hardware Plus)

NA-SFMA1 Review

Il test è stato condotto con un microfono posto a 20 cm di distanza per capire come la nuova struttura influenzasse la rumorosità e sono rimasto veramente colpito da come queste nuove ventole riescano ad avere un flusso d’aria così elevato ed uniforme, ma allo stesso tempo una bassissima rumorosità che si aggira intorno al 25% in meno rispetto le ventole NF-F12 se portate a pari velocità.
Test verdict: "Noctua come al solito non ha deluso le aspettative su questi nuovi prodotti, ed è riuscita a migliorare le sue proposte più performanti, tramite la nuova serie NF-A12x25 con l’utilizzo del nuovo materiale a cristalli liquidi Sterrox® LCP, andando così ad aumentare le prestazioni mantenendo una bassissima rumorosità."

NA-SFMA1 Review

Az évek során megszokhattuk, hogy a Noctua kiváló minőségű hűtési megoldásokat dob piacra. Tőlük nem kell várnunk különféle RGB-s ventilátorokat, vagy méretes vízhűtéseket – bár utóbbi termékvonal a pletykák szerint hamarosan érkezni fog – , hanem inkább abban jeleskednek, amiben szerintünk a legjobbak, azaz a ventilátorok terén igyekeznek évről évre maradandót alkotni. A kiváló minőséget a több száz elnyert díj és a pozitív vásárlói visszajelzések is bizonyítják. Persze a minőséget (és természetesen a kutatási költséget) meg kell fizetni… Mai tesztünkben két új ventilátorral ismerkedhettek meg, valamint elhoztunk nektek egy érdekes kiegészítőt, mellyel a Noctua a vízhűtés szerelmesei számára kínál egyfajta alternatívát.
Test verdict: "Az NA-SFMA1 tökéletes választás azok számára, akik 120 mm-es Noctua ventilátorokkal akarják felvértezni 280 mm-es folyadékhűtéses radiátoraikat." (Kocsis Bence, Rendszerigény.hu)
