NH-U12F Review

As you can see the Noctua NH-U12F outperformed the other two coolers. At idle the temperature of the processor rose only 1.6°C above the room temperature with the NH-U12F. During load the processor got 10°C less hot with the NH-U12F than with the stock Intel HSF. Besides cooling much better, the NH-U12F was also a lot more silent than both other coolers. [...] Much to my surprise the Ultra Low Noise Adapter barely increased the temperatures. The processor only got 1° hotter with the U.L.N.A. and that's almost negligible if you take the higher room temperature into account. It seems the NH-U12F needs very little airflow to keep the temperatures low. The temperatures without the fan are also still OK. In fact, when you compare the results from this chart with the first chart in which I compared this cooler to the standard Intel heatsink you can see that the NH-U12F without active cooling gets 2°C less hot than the actively cooled Intel heatsink!
Test verdict: "I'm very impressed with the Noctua NH-U12F. The cooler is really big and heavy but it's build quality is excellent and it keeps the processor very cool. Additionally, the noise levels of the Noctua NH-U12F fan are exceptionally low and the package also includes anti-vibration pads and an Ultra Low Noise Adapter to further decrease the noise levels."

NF-S12-1200 Review

Infelizmente não dispomos de um decibelímetro para atestar a diferença entre os níveis de ruído produzidos pelos ventiladores. Mas subjetivamente, nota-se que o ventilador da Noctua produz muito pouco ruído, menos que qualquer outro dispositivo do computador, enquanto o ventilador genérico já se faz notar e o Papst, apesar do ótimo desempenho, faz certo ruído mesmo em baixa rotação. Mesmo não sendo a aplicação mais adequada, o ventilador da Noctua obteve marcas muito boas, 58ºC é uma temperatura perfeitamente suportável para o processador. 2ºC a menos que o ventilador genérico, que faz mais ruído. E 2ºC acima do Papst, que faz muito mais ruído.
Test verdict: "Pelo silêncio absoluto, extraordinária durabilidade e ótima performance, os ventiladores da Noctua merecem nossa recomendação." (Alexandre Ziebert, ForumPCs.com.br)

NC-U6 Review

On top of the high-end motherboard target of the NC-U6, the inclusion of two different and easily adjustable retention mechanisms makes installation a real breeze, leaving us with very little negative to say about Noctua's efforts. Easy installation and it does the job its set up to do, all at a price that can't really be complained about considering the build quality of the product you're getting - What more is there to say?
Test verdict: "While the motherboard used for our testing has no huge requirement for a hefty cooling solution, there are plenty of motherboards out there that do, and for such devices the NC-U6 is an ideal piece of hardware for both users who want a high performance PC coupled with silent cooling, or those looking to overclock the FSB on their motherboard without attaching noisy fans to its chipset."

NC-U6 Review

As seen in both tests, the Noctua cooler performed much better than the stock cooler, with temperatures decreasing approximately 4 degrees during idle and 3 degrees during full load. Given that the existing cooler was had a fan and the Noctua cooler is passive, that's a great improvement.
Test verdict: "The Noctua NC-U6 chipset cooler is one of those rare components that has both solid performance and silent operations at the same time. The cooler also has a flexible design that offers improved performance over a stock chipset cooler. The design takes into account the various chipset designs and mounting configurations, addressing any compatibility issues. Overall, if you're looking to improve your Northbridge chipset performance along with reducing noise, you'd be hard pressed to find a better cooler than the Noctua NC-U6." (Michael Chiu, Rbmods.com)

NF-S12-1200 Review

Silenciosos.
Buen rendimiento.
Silenciosos.
Anclajes anti vibración.
¿Dije que eran silenciosos?
Test verdict: "Caso notable el de los ventiladores Noctua, con su ingeniería austriaca sobre salen del resto por su buen rendimiento y bajos niveles de ruido, otro punto a destacar es que el ventilador de la tarjeta grafica era mucho más molesto que los 4 ventiladores aquí probados."

NF-S12-1200 Review

As fans go, these Noctua specimens are pretty impressive. Plugged straight into the PSU, they weren't silent, but the noise produced was quite different than the vast majority of other fans I've used. While most fans emit a distinctive 'whirring' sound, the sound from the Noctua units was lower in frequency and easily masked by the background room noise. After a very few minutes, my ears seemed to 'lose' the Noctua fans. With the ULNA's in place, the fans became completely inaudible from a distance of more than a few inches. Similarly, the airflow performance was quite good, considering their silence.
Test verdict: "The newest fan offerings from Noctua are real gems! They are quiet (silent, when used with the ULNA,) and move a respectable amount of air. While I hate to make generalizations about such things, these fans exhibit the high quality, innovative features and performance that products from this part of the world are famous for. Noctua has clearly set out to redefine what the future of quiet cooling will be, and if these fans are any indication, they have a very good start." (Joe Anderson, TweakNews.net)

NF-S12-1200 Review

The performance results for these fans are absolutely amazing. While these fans were purring along at only 600rpm they were cooling off the case as well (and better in some areas) than the stock fans running at 900rpm. This goes to show how efficient blade design through engineering genius can increase airflow exponentially. When the speed of the NF-S12 fans was increased to 1200rpm, the contest wasn't even close. The Noctua fans completely overwhelmed the competition by decreasing some temperatures by as much as 7°C! It is absolutely shocking to see the temperature of an overclocked CPU drop by nearly 5°C just by changing to these Noctua fans. [...] Two words come to mind when thinking of the noise level of the Noctua NF-S12: dead silent. When operating at 1200rpm the 4 Noctuas were actually quieter than the stock fans running at 900rpm. Even though the opinion about what constitutes noise and the amount one can hear varies from person to person, even those with the sharpest hearing will have trouble hearing these fans.
Test verdict: "After running through the tests it is more than apparent that a lot of thought and state-of-the-art engineering went into the design of this Noctua fan. Not only did they operate at a lower noise level than the already-quiet stock case fans but they did so while pushing more air through the case. That is efficiency at its finest folks!"

NH-U12F Review

Sowohl der Kühler von Noctua als auch von Scythe unterbieten sogar die 55-Grad- Grenze (Nocta 51,3, Scythe 53) und arbeiten somit fast 15 Grad kühler als mit dem Intel Pentium 4 550.
Test verdict: "Die getesteten CPU-Kühler unterscheiden sich vom Funktionsprinzip kaum voneinander, denn alle besitzen eine Heatpipe, die die Hitze des Prozessors an die großflächigen Kühllamellen abgibt. Besonders gut gelöst hat dies der Hersteller Noctua. Neben der zwar etwas umständlichen Schraubbefestigung, die dafür aber bombenfest sitzt, ist auch die Lautstärke des verbauten 120-Millimeter-Lüfters (17 dB/A) positiv. Dieser ist kaum zu hören und kühlt unseren 'Hitzkopf' auf sehr gute 66,9 Grad." (Fabian Schusdziara, PC Praxis)

NH-U12F Review

For standard clock rates, this cooler hangs with best and is probably the quietest CPU fan this test bench has ever heard. When the U.N.L.A. is attached, the fan produces almost no noise above the base line of the system. Even though it had half as much airflow, the temperatures remained the same for the stock speeds. This is a huge indication of how much capacity this cooler has. In regards to the chipset cooler, it is definitely doing its job. The motherboard temperatures did not rise above +1C from room temperature the entire time.
Test verdict: "When weighing the performance versus the noise production, the NH-U12F and NC-U6 really shine. The fan technology is amazing, the mounting systems are simple, and the cooler has extreme flexibility between audio contentment and all out performance. Hence, both the NH-U12F and the NC-U6 from Noctua earn lots of admiration from this crew." (Chris Hunter, FastSilicon.com)

NF-R8 Review

My test system up until now has used a "hair-dryer" blower fan on a smallish (compared to some others) heatsink. The CPU in there is a Prescott 3ghz - so it knows how to put out some heat! On the back of the case was an Antec 120mm LED Fan. Please excuse the dust on the Antec! Mounting the Noctua fans was extremely simple, thanks to the rubber "vibration compensators". To use them, you simply hold the fan against the holes in the case, and push the rubber pins through from the other side. You then grab the end of the pin, and pull until the edge of the pin pulls through and the fan is secured snugly against the case. To be honest, I did not know if this was going to work acceptably. The 120mm fan was a given - after all, it is doing the simple job of removing hot air from the case. Replacing a high powered but extremely noisy blower fan with a low noise 80mm fan was more of a gamble. Obviously this is not a review about the ability of the 80mm fan to be attached to a heatsink that it was never designed for, and I promised myself I would not be disappointed if it did not work out. Thankfully though, the fan attached, and it actually managed to keep the cpu cool, even when at 100% load (running 2 instances of Toast). The Noctua fans are completely silent inside from outside the case, with the only real noise that I have to live with now coming from the GPU cooler and the PSU.
Test verdict: "Both the Noctua NF-S12 and the NF-R8 are, in my opinion and without a doubt, the best quiet fans on the market today. They offer serious performance, unrivalled quality, while pleasing the "quiet" enthusiasts. I am pleased to recommend these fans to anyone needing a quiet solution. To sum it all up, the Noctua fans presented today are reasonably priced, and excellent value for the product that you get. The design benefits are obvious, with the resulting lack of noise paying testament to the high quality work and testing that Noctua has been able to produce. If you want quiet fans, then look no further, because the Noctua NF-S12 and the Noctua NF-R8 are the best." (John Wilholt, TechDomain.com.au)
