Noctua presents NF-B9 92mm fan

Vienna, February 6th 2008 - After the successful introduction of the NF-P12 120mm fan in November, Noctua presented today their first 92mm retail fan: The NF-B9 complements Noctua's much acclaimed 80 and 120mm fan series, which have been recommended by over 150 international websites and magazines, and achieves outstanding airflow and pressure performance at exceptionally low noise levels.

"Many avid Noctua users have already asked us for a 92mm model", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "After a development period of over 18 months, we're finally able to present a 92mm fan that fully meets our high demands and sets new standards in the 92mm range."

The NF-B9's highly-optimised blade design achieves an exceptional level of airflow and static pressure that most other fans can only reach at much higher speeds. For instance, the NF-B9 achieves no less than 64.3m³/h and 1.61mm H2O at 1600rpm.

Thanks to Noctua's advanced noise reduction techniques however, the NF-B9 is surprisingly quiet at only 17.6dB(A): Bevelled blade tips and the Vortex-Control Notches - already known from the successful NF-P12 - minimize aerodynamic noise. Noctua's well proven SSO-Bearing as well as the new SC drive system - already known from the NF-P12 - ensure outstanding quietness and long-term stability.

The NF-B9 has an MTBF of over 150.000 hours and comes with 6 years manufacturer's warranty. Using the supplied Low-Noise and Ultra-Low-Noise adaptors, the fan's speed can be reduced to 1300 resp. 1000 rpm thus achieving even greater quietness.

Price and availability
The NF-B9 is available immediately at a recommended price of EUR 17.90 / USD 21.90.

Test verdict: "Køleevne Vi ligger jo ikke på samme niveau som de store modeller, men stadig godt klaret i forhold til størrelsen af køleren. Og med en ekstra blæser på, er der ingen tvivl om at de slår mange, hvis ikke alle andre kølere i denne klasse." (John Thorn, ElektronikTest.dk)

Test verdict: "For a Mini-ITX CPU cooler, the Noctua NH-L12 is somewhat of a luxury product. But like any luxury item, this heat sink comes with all the bells and whistles. While the price might be high compared to competing coolers, the NH-L12’s quality, configurability and extras make this cooler a value nonetheless." (Thomas Soderstrom, Tom's Hardware)

Test verdict: "Der NH-U14S ist noch leistungsfähiger als der ohnehin schon gut abschneidende Dark Rock 3 und hält somit die CPU noch kühler. Hinzu kommt das bessere Montagesystem, was am Ende auch einen teureren Einkaufspreis nach sich zieht." (Dennis Heinze, hardwarepoint.net)

Test verdict: "Uzun lafın kısası ufak form faktörde bir bilgisayar topluyorsanız ve size ram,ekran kartı, kasa uyumuyla sıkıntı yaşatmayacak bir hava soğutma çözümü arıyorsanız NH-U9S ye bakmanızı mutlaka tavsiye ederim. Zira şu an piyasada pek alternatifi ortada gözükmüyor. Altı sene garantide cabası." (Ali Emre Alıcı, Donanimhaber Forum)
