Noctua - Bild

Product discontinued.

The classic NF-R8 80mm fan helped to found Noctua’s reputation as a top-tier manufacturer of premium quality quiet cooling components and still impresses users with its exquisite quietness and superb performance. The new PWM version features Noctua’s novel, custom designed PWM IC for fully automatic control and ultra-low power consumption. Equipped with Noctua’s signature SSO bearing and topped off with a 6 years manufacturer’s warranty, the NF-R8 PWM is a proven premium choice for the highest demands.

Focused Flow Proven NF-R8 Design
Tens of thousands of quiet cooling enthusiasts swear by Noctua’s classic NF-R8. Its impressive quietness, excellent performance and impeccable, time-tested quality made the R8 a default choice for 80mm quiet cooling.

PWM Custom designed PWM IC with SCD
Supporting fully automatic PWM speed control, the NF-R8 PWM uses Noctua’s novel, custom designed NE-FD1 PWM IC that integrates Smooth Commutation Drive (SCD) technology. By providing smoother torque impulses, SCD suppresses PWM switching noises and thus makes the fan quieter at lower speeds. button

LNA Low-Noise Adaptor
The NF-R8 PWM is supplied with a Low-Noise Adaptor (L.N.A.) that reduces the maximum fan speed from 1800 to 1300rpm. The L.N.A can be used either to run the fan at a fixed speed of 1300rpm or to cap the maximum speed when using automatic PWM control.

Cabling Options Extensive Cabling Options
The fan’s short 20cm primary cable minimises cable clutter in typical applications while the supplied 30cm extension provides extended reach when necessary. Both cables are fully sleeved and a 4-pin y-cable allows to connect a second NF-R8 fan to the same PWM fan header for automatic control.

SSO-Bearing SSO-Bearing
Combining the proven concept of hydrodynamic bearing with an additional magnet that supports the self-stabilisation of the rotor axis, Noctua’s time-tested SSO-Bearing technology has become synonymous with supremely quiet operation and exceptional long-term stability. button

Warranty 6 years manufacturer’s warranty
Noctua fans are renowned for their impeccable quality and outstanding longevity. Like all Noctua fans, the NF-R8 PWM features an MTBF rating of more than 150.000 hours and comes with a full 6 years manufacturer’s warranty.

Test verdict: "Noctua ancora una volta ci sorprende con i suoi prodotti eccezionali che rappresentano la qualità per eccellenza nel suo settore. I loro punti di forza si sono ancora una volta espressi in silenziosità, qualità ed efficienza, il top che pretende ogni utente." (Enrico Luperini,

Test verdict: "Po pravilu, kao i svaki drugi sjajan Noctua proizvod, tako ćemo i ova dva kulera nagraditi sa 'PCAXE Diamond' priznanjem. U pratnji te nagrade dolazi i "PCAXE Advanced Design" jer su oba kulera dizajnirana tako da nemaju otisak veći od 95x95cm, zbog čega nude neverovatno otvorenu kompatibilnost." (Atila Gobor,

Test verdict: "With the popularity of MiniITX motherboards there has been a push for companiles to make smaller computer cases. As these cases shrink to take advantage of the smaller form factor it becomes increasingly difficult to find a good aftermarket heatsink that not only cools well but, can fit in a half height computer chassis. The Noctua NH-L9x65 is designed to take advantage of this niche and offers up a viable replacement for the OEM coolers from Intel and AMD." (Dennis Garcia,
