NF-A20 PWM, NF-A20 FLX

It runs very quiet and seems to move the air through the case pretty well. At $30, it’s about $10 more than a replacement Thermaltake branded fan. For me, it was worth the extra money. Not only does the fan operate efficiently and quietly, it carries a rock solid 6 year warranty should I ever need it.
Test verdict: "If you’re in the market for a high quality 200mm fan for your PC, you really can’t go wrong with the Noctua NF-A20 PWM." (Krishna Sadasivam, PC Weenies)

NF-A20 PWM, NF-A20 FLX

Tenemos ante nosotros dos ventiladores Noctua NF-A20, de gran formato, uno basado en la tecnología FLEX, que ofrece flexibilidad de funcionamiento según las necesidades, de manera automática y el modelo PWM, que permite variar la velocidad de trabajo según la temperatura del procesador, aumentando el caudal. Son ventiladores polivalentes, de muy buena calidad, pero claramente estos ventiladores están pensados para un número reducido de chasis, ya que son de 200mm de diámetro, un tamaño poco estándar y poco utilizado, pero sin duda, para aquellos que tengan un gran chasis, son ideales. La sonoridad de estos ventiladores está dentro de unos parámetros más que normales, debido a que estos ventiladores trabajan a velocidades relativamente bajas, gracias a sus dimensiones. Sencillamente son ventiladores, similares a los de 120/140mm, pero en este caso operando a una velocidad de trabajo inferior, debido a que cuanto mayor es el ventilador, menos velocidad de trabajo se necesita para operar. Aquellos que tengan chasis compatibles con estos ventiladores, instalando uno de estos inyectando aire y la temperatura bajaran varios grados, debido al gran caudal que es capaz de absorber.
Test verdict: "Excelentes ventiladores, sin lugar a dudas." (Roberto Solé, HardwareSfera.com)

NA-SAV3, NA-SAV4, NA-SAC5, NF-A20 PWM, NF-A20 FLX, NF-A12x15 PWM, NF-A12x15 FLX, NF-A4x20 PWM, NF-A4x20 FLX, NF-A4x20 5V PWM, NF-A4x20 5V, NA-FC1

Jumping right into things and as you would expect from Noctua, the performance of these products is second to none. Given their respective sizes, all of these fans create a decent amount of airflow when tested in an open world environment, i.e. not in a case but just on a table. As mentioned I have actually used the NF-A4x20’s on a 3D printer in the past and was a great upgrade from the cheap fans that it had originally come with. While some may criticize the colour scheme, I don’t recall hearing very many people talk ill of the performance of any Noctua product. These fans all offer a great amount of airflow, again, for their respective sizes and remain as quiet as possible when doing so. The massive NF-A20’s are for those who need the most airflow possible but do make sure your case or where ever you are using them can cater to their 20cm sizes. The A4x20’s and A12x15’s are for when space is crucial and you need the most from your fans. The small 20mm and their unique size can come in handy for a number of scenarios. The added airflow to say the intake vents on a lot of the newer PC gaming cases is sure to help keep your components as cool as can be. The A12x15 are slimline and will surely come in handy for those looking to go with a push/pull configuration on any radiators for CPU and GPU cooling. Too many times have I seen a case where you can’t install a push/pull configuration due to space restrictions, well no more! Noctua’s A12x15 are sure to help you overcome this issue with ease. All of these fans in their own rights are equally useful and offer the same great performance we have come to know and love from Noctua. As far as the accessories go, they all perform as good as one could hope for. My Favourite was probably the fan controller as it allowed me to control my 2 front intake fans and 1 exhaust fan with ease. During the day I like them silent, but when the headphones come out and the game comes on, it’s time to turn the fans up a bit and this was done easily and quickly. The Anti-vibration mounts are nice as well. Not only do they reduce noise from vibrations, they allow you to install and remove your fans with ease which is always a plus when it comes time to clean them. Lastly, the 4-pin PWM to SATA power cable is a great addition to any build as it will allow you to connect a fan to any extra SATA power cables you have coming from your power supply. Those with motherboards that don’t have a lot of fan headers and are not keen on using a controller will find these very useful.
Test verdict: "If you want the best of the best and you want it to last you for as long as you’ll need, then Noctua has the answer for you. These products on review here today are well worth their individual price tags and you shouldn’t be put off paying a bit extra for them considering everything they have to offer."

Šie ventiliatoriai paveldėjo visas efektyvumo/triukšmo santykį gerinančias „Noctua“ technologijas, taikomas korpusams skirtiems ventiliatoriams. Kiekviena iš devynių mentelių pasižymi trimis linijiniais iškilimais – tai „Noctua“ patentuota Flow Acceleration Channels technologija, padidinanti oro tėkmės efektyvumą ir sumažinanti oro sūkuriavimo sukeltą triukšmą. Išorinėje rėmo dalyje esantys smulkūs įleidimai (angl. Stepped Inlet Design) atsakingi už papildomą turbulencijos sukūrimą bei triukšmo slopinimą įsiurbiant orą, o rėmo viduje matomi mažyčiai išskaptavimai (angl. Inner Surface Microstructures) ne tik mažina oro tėkmės pasipriešinimą tarp mentelių, bet ir tuo pačiu didina ventiliatoriaus sukuriamą statinį slėgį. „Noctua“ stengėsi, kad NF-A20 galėtų pakeisti ne tik 200 mm skersmens gamyklinius korpusų ventiliatorius, bet ir didesnius. Ant AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) rėmo esančios 170 x 170 tvirtinimo skylės turėtų leisti pakeisti daugelį 230/250 mm ventiliatorių. Mažiausiai 150 000 valandų siekiantį produkto ilgaamžiškumą užtikrina antros kartos SSO guoliai, o bet kokias su vibracijomis susijusias problemas šalina guminiai padukai ir dėžutėse rasti dviejų rūšių (NA-AV3 ir NA-AV4) daugkartinio naudojimo laikikliai.

Another issue that I ran into is the fact that these fans are so incredibly quiet that I was not able to pick them up with my dB meter. The ambient noise in my condo is above that of the fans, and the only one I can audibly hear over anything else any more than a foot away is the 120 mm fan. At 70% speed (thanks again for the awesome tool, Noctua!), I was only able to hear it at the same distance as the other fans. It becomes audible above 70%, but not intrusively. I have an absolutely maddening obsession when it comes to rig silence, so for me to say this, it tells you something. Even the 40 mm fans did me very proud indeed. I was able to hear them a very small amount, but given that they are spinning at 5000 RPM (I may or may not have tried to stick my finger in to slow it down…), it blew me away with its noise level. Simply phenomenal acoustic levels.
Test verdict: "If you can afford the premium price that comes attached with Noctua products, and you don’t mind their browny-beige color scheme, then they are absolutely one of the best fan makers in the world. I honestly forgot how quiet and premium their fans were until I got my hands on the care package that they sent over." (Brendan van Varik, PureOverclock.com)

NF-A20 PWM, NF-A20 FLX

At roughly 34.5dBA, +/- 0.5dBA, the Noctua fan pushes 424LPM, where Cooler Master does 334LPM. At 33dBA, we’re running 386LPM on Noctua, and 302LPM on Cooler Master. 31dBA has us at 316LPM and 275LPM, respectively. [...] The Noctua fan remains generally ahead, but has a wider acoustic performance lead at the low-end. If you recall, Cooler Master had a bit of an LPM lead at the same low-end, which would mesh with these noise findings.
Test verdict: "[T]he Noctua fan pushes a higher LPM than Cooler Master at the higher RPMs, and manages to do so while retaining competitive noise levels. The Noctua NF-A20 could be run at 90% and achieve similar airflow and acoustic performance to the Cooler Master fan at 100%, which is potentially beneficial to some noise-sensitive users;" (Stephen Burke, GamersNexus.net)

Noctua sigue siendo el mejor fabricante del mundo en lo relativo a ventiladores y disipadores. No hay ningún otro fabricante que se le acerque. Es impresionante la amplia gama disponible, pero sobre todo la calidad y el detalle con los que se fabrica y distribuyen sus productos. Sus ventiladores son robustos y utilizan gran cantidad de patentes y desarrollos nacidos dentro de Noctua. Incorporan gran cantidad de accesorios y extras para cualquier tipo de montaje. Basta con ver el sistema OmniJoin que incorporan los modelos de 40mm, pensado para facilitar la instalación de ventiladores en equipos que no siempre llevan el conector estándar. El precio va desde las 15 Euros de los modelos de 40 mm hasta los 30 Euros del modelo de 200 mm. Personalmente no son caros, viendo lo que incorporan y la calidad que ofrecen.
Test verdict: "A modo de conclusión final, indicar que nos volvemos a encontrar con los mejores ventiladores que podemos adquirir. Antes de comprar hay que asegurarse del modelo que necesitamos y estoy seguro que Noctua lo tendrá dentro de su amplio catálogo. Toda la gama A obtiene 5 estrellas y nuestro llevo de producto recomendado." (Abel Hernandez Valero, TodoHTPC.com)

NF-A20 PWM, NF-A20 FLX

With the Intel stock cooler installed, we let our Intel i7 4790K system run on full load using Prime95 for extended hours. The highest temperature recorded while using the stock 200mm fan is 46°C, but both the Noctua NF-A20 FLX and NF-A20 PWM perform even better with 3°C lower than the stock fan.
Test verdict: "While most of the stock 200mm fan we’ve seen run at around 900-1000RPM, not many of them are as well built and as capable of moving as much air as both the Noctua NF-A20 PWM and NF-A20 FLX are without compromising the acoustic performance. If you happen to have one and planning to upgrade its 200mm fan, the Noctua NF-A20 FLX or NF-A20 PWM are a choice that is definitely worth considering – especially for the 6-year warranty period which not many brands would offer."

NF-A20 PWM, NF-A20 FLX

Долгожданная 200-мм модель от австрийского производителя, наконец-то позволит заменить обладателям больших корпусов свои старые стоковые вентиляторы. Но подойдет она далеко не всем, потому для начала стоит ознакомиться со списками совместимости с шасси на официальном сайте. NF-A20 PWM имеет высокое качество изготовления, богатую комплектацию и отличные показатели производительности при относительно невысоком уровне шума. Наличие ШИМ у данной модели позволяет снизить скорость пропеллера до минимального порога в 350 об/мин, при которой он будет полностью бесшумным. Однако, наиболее эффективная по соотношению производительности и шума скорость для него — это 550 об/мин, в которые легко можно попасть, используя комплектный понижающий резистор. Noctua NF-A20 FLX: Мало чем отличается от NF-A20 PWM по техническим параметрам и производительности. Тут нет ШИМ для гибкого и оперативного управления скоростью вентилятора, зато есть трехконтактный разъем, и переходник для подключения к блоку питания. Потому типичный сценарий использования данного пропеллера выглядит так: подключаем его к БП, используя переходник, удлинитель и комплектный резистор, снижаем скорость до 550 об/мин и забываем о его существовании.
Test verdict: "Как видно из результатов тестирования, и это вполне ожидаемо, 200-мм вентиляторы являются чемпионами по объему прокачиваемого воздуха. Что еще интереснее — благодаря технологиям Noctua им удается сохранять при этом относительную тишину." (Vasilenko Andrey, Overclockers.com.ua)
