Noctua presents NF-S12B premium fan

Vienna, April 21st 2009 - Noctua today introduced the new NF-S12B 120mm premium fan. Succeeding the vastly successful NF-S12, the NF-S12B is a next generation quiet fan featuring Noctua's advanced SCD2 technology as well as a highly optimised blade geometry with Bevelled Blade Tips that improves its award-winning predecessor's airflow efficiency by up to 10%.

"Our popular NF-S12 series is renowned for its excellent airflow/noise ratio, so further improving it was by no means an easy feat", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "It took us quite a lot of time and effort, but we couldn't be happier with the result. The new NF-S12B doesn't only provide more airflow at the same noise level than the original NF-S12, it also produces higher static pressure."

Building on the proven basis of the original NF-S12 impeller, the design goal for the NF-S12B was to further improve its predecessor's much acclaimed airflow/noise ratio and to increase static pressure in order to allow for a broader range of applications. These goals have been achieved by reducing the tip clearance at the leading edge and adding Bevelled Blade-Tips, a feature first introduced with the NF-B9 92mm fan.

In addition to its highly optimised impeller design, the NF-S12B features Noctua's time-tested premium quality SSO-Bearing as well as Smooth Commutation Drive 2, the latest version of Noctua's advanced drive system that ensures superb running smoothness by eliminating torque variations and switching noises.

The NF-S12B is available in two versions: Whereas the FLX (Flexibility) version provides 1200, 900 and 600 rpm speed settings via the supplied Low-Noise and Ultra-Low-Noise Adapters in order to fine-tune it for superior airflow or maximum quietness, the ULN (Ultra-Low-Noise) version with 700/500rpm speed settings is tailor made for silent enthusiasts who demand super-slow running speeds and utmost quietness of operation.

Pricing and Availability
The NF-S12B FLX and NF-S12B ULN are available immediately at a suggested retail price of EUR 19.90 / USD 24.90.

Test verdict: "Η Noctua NH-D9L έρχεται με προτεινόμενη τιμή λιανικής στα 49.90€, και είναι μια πρόταση αρκετά λογική για την απόδοση της ψήκτρας, ειδικά αν συνυπολογίσουμε το γεγονός πως πρόκειται για μια low-profile λύση! Πέρασε τα τεστ μας με αρκετή επιτυχία, και γι’ αυτό δεν έχουμε λόγο ώστε να την θεωρήσουμε μια αξιόλογη λύση!" (Nasioulis Evangelos, ByTheWay.gr)

Test verdict: "Οι επιδόσεις, σε συνδυασμό με τον ανεμιστήρα που δεν θα ενοχλήσει καθόλου τα υψηλά memory modules,καθώς και ο χαμηλός παραγόμενος θόρυβος την καθιστούν μία πολύ καλή all around λύση, που ταιριάζει σε όλα τα socket." (Nasioulis Evangelos, ByTheWay.gr)
