    NF-A4x10 5V, NF-A9 FLX, NF-A9 PWM, NF-A8 ULN, NF-A8 FLX, NF-A8 PWM Review

    "Starting with the NF-A4x10, this 40x10mm sized fan is one of the smallest I’ve ever encountered. Powered by a minimum of 5 volts, the tiny case fan operates effectively even at high RPMs, but has the slight drawback of a slightly high pitched noise at full power; the sound can reach to around 20db, although where this fan would be used, noise would clearly not be an issue. I found the NF-A4x10 to be perfect for users who use the popular Asus Sabertooth Mark 1 with TUF armor as the fan is small enough to be placed next to the rear I/O or underneath the TUF armor. Moving on to the next model in the lineup, the NF-A8. With its 80mm specification, the NF-A8 is suitable for hard drive bay cooling or micro-ATX cases where space saving is crucial. Although the NF-A8 supports a larger form factor, the noise is significantly quieter at 16db. Last in the arsenal is the NF-A9. Designed to operate as a rear case fan, CPU cooling fan, or inside a micro-ATX case, its 92mm size makes it the most desired out of the three models. At maximum performance, the NF-A9 is the loudest of the bunch reaching sound levels between 20db and 22db. However, compared to the NF-A4x10 the 92mm size allows it to be quieter without any pitched noise."

    Test verdict: "In the end, the NF-A4x10, NF-A8 and NF-A9 fans comply with Noctua’s Premium Fan statement. Backed by an outstanding six year warranty, these fans should last a computer’s life time without you needing to replace them. With pricing starting at $18.95 for the NF-A8, $19.99 for the NF-A9, and $23.99 for the NF-A4x10, you can’t go wrong buying these fans." (Justin Vendette, TechSupportForum.com)

    NH-D15 Review

    "The improved NF-A15 fans add another strong point to the Noctua NH-D15. The fans are controllable by the PWM functionality for convenient automatic speed control through the mainboard. Furthermore, the maximum fan speed can be tuned down from 1500 to 1200rpm using the included Low-Noise Adapter (L.N.A.) for even quieter operation. The only negative comment about this fan is no other than its colour scheme, which is comes in beige and brown colours. We would like to see a different colour scheme used in Noctua’s new flagship cooler in the future. When it comes to cooling performance, the Noctua NH-D15 did not disappoint is when it was able to keep the temperature under control even when the CPU was overclocked. We managed to overclock our 8-core Core i7-5960X processor to a core frequency of 4.4GHz. The load temperature obtained was 88°C which still leave a headroom to overclock further. We were also able to push our quad-core Core i7-4790K CPU to an impressive clock of 4.6GHz and the load temperature was 78°C which is quite impressive for an air cooler."

    Test verdict: "There’s no doubting that the Noctua NH-D15 is a very decent air cooler. Noctua improved the shortcomings of the old flagship cooler NH-D14 by expanding the dual tower design and offer a much better memory compatibility, which allows for more memory kits with high-profile heatspreader to sit under the heatsink. The build quality is excellent with the heatsink’s aluminium fins soldered nicely onto the heatpipes. The SecuFirm2 mounting kit makes cooler installation easier and more secured."

    NH-U14S Review

    "Encore une fois sans vraiment de surprise, les résultats du test de chaleur, symbolisé par le recours à un benchmark d’une heure d’OCCT, montrent une propension au refroidissement presque au-delà de tout superlatif, on va arrêter d’en ajouter, on s’en voudrait de passer pour un vendu, mais voyez par vous-même. Les relevés sont encore une fois excellents, une constante chez Noctua, inutile de tergiverser et augurent une prédisposition pour l’OC conséquente, grâce à un caloduc supplémentaire (par rapport au NH-U12S s’entend), au volume de dissipation plus élevé et au ventilateur de NF-A15, capable de produire un flux d’air plus important. La réputation de Noctua ne s’est pas faite seulement sur des performances supérieures mais également grâce à ses ventilateurs, certes reconnaissables de loin à leurs couleurs mais aussi parmi les plus silencieux."

    Test verdict: "Il est tout d’abord apparu que le NH-U14S est un ventirad très bien conçu et qui doit être produit selon des canons très stricts, c’est tout du moins l’impression qu’on a en considérant sa qualité de fabrication générale. Puis, la phase de montage s’est montrée aussi facile que dans le cas des autres ventirads Noctua (et pour cause) et relativement rapide. Quant aux performances en refroidissement, elles sont, comme toujours pour l’instant chez Noctua (après trois tests plus que concluants), elles sont au-dessus de la mêlée et le tout dans un silence plus que relatif, à la hauteur de la réputation que le constructeur s’est patiemment forgée au fil des années."

    NF-A14 industrialPPC-2000 PWM, NF-A14 industrialPPC-2000 IP67 PWM, NF-A14 industrialPPC-2000 Review

    "U vezi maksimalne brzine ventilatora: iako nije dostigao maksimalnu brzinu, radijator je gust itd. Da li je NF-A14 iPPC pružio najbolje performanse? Da li NF-A14 iPPC pruža tihu i efikasnu zamenu za fabričko rešenje? Da? To je ono što je najbitnije. Verovatno nije teško biti tiši od onih turbina, a Noctua ventilatore realno ni ne treba posebno hvaliti. Zaključak do kojeg dolazimo je da Noctua predstavlja najozbiljnijeg proizvođača računarskih ventilatora na svetu, a sada i industrijskih rešenja. Pored ogromnog broja modela u raznim dimenzijama, pune lepeze formata od 40 do 140mm, ovoj kompaniji nema ravne."

    Test verdict: "Noctua iPPC modele možemo preporučiti svima i za skoro sve namene, a da ne bismo previše odlutali od IT domena, vratićemo se na računare i performanse." (Atila Gobor, PCAXE.com)

    NF-A9 FLX Review

    "Стоит отметить, что при использовании вентиляторов Noctua, удалось добиться не только снижения температуры процессора, но и заметно меньший уровень шума. Даже на минимальной скорости вентилятор Noctua демонстрирует лучшую производительность, нежели штатное решение."

    Test verdict: "Noctua NF-A9 FLX является чрезвычайно тихим и эффективным решением, если вы планируете приобрести 92 мм вентилятор! Мало того, что даже на максимальных оборотах его не слышно, то с LNA или ULNA адаптером можно будет считать ваш ПК пассивным с точки зрения уровня шума! Для требовательных к уровню шума пользователей мы смело можем рекомендовать NF-A9 FLX к покупке!" Владимир Солонин, GreenTechReviews.ru)
