Which 120mm fan?

Noctua’s 120mm fans are premium quality solutions that have been thoroughly optimised to achieve the best possible results in specific fields of application. Each of the three models works fine in all typical environments, so you can’t go wrong with either of them, but choosing the model that is best suited for your application can help you to obtain even better results:

NF-S12A NF-P12 NF-F12
Case Ventilation
Heatsink & Radiator Performance
Quietness

NF-S12A: The NF-S12A has been optimised for “low impedance” applications that don’t require high static pressure and thus combines moderate pressure with outstanding airflow and superb quietness of operation. Choose the NF-S12A for case ventilation, applications with little or no obstruction to airflow as well as all other applications where minimum noise emission has first priority.

NF-P12: The NF-P12 has been designed with more pressure demanding “high impedance” applications in mind. It provides an even balance of high static pressure, high airflow and excellent quietness, which has made it a standard choice for low noise CPU cooling, cases with tight fan grills and other low noise cooling applications with mid- to high airflow resistance.

NF-F12: The NF-F12’s unique Focused Flow™ system produces extremely high static pressure and focuses the airflow in order to achieve even better results on air cooling heatsinks and water cooling radiators. With a top speed of 1500rpm, it also offers more performance headroom for less noise-sensitive applications. Choose the NF-F12 if you’re looking for the best possible performance on heatsinks and radiators.

Test verdict: "Soğutucu seçerken kasa, ekran kartı, ram, anakart gibi bileşenler sizi kısıtlıyorsa NH-L9x65'e bakmanızı tavsiye ederim." (Ali Emre Alıcı, Donanimhaber Forum)

Test verdict: "Noctua NH-L9x65 to wprawdzie bardzo kompaktowy cooler CPU ale mimo to jest on godnym następcą modelu NH-L9. Po pierwsze oferowana przez niego wydajność już bez problemu wystarczy do zastosowań przy chłodzeniu nawet wydajniejszych procesorów (a przynajmniej jeśli chodzi o jednostki 4-rdzeniowe). Po drugie producent nie rozdziela już tego modelu coolera na wersję dla AMD i wersję dla Intel a zatem jest to rozwiązanie zdecydowanie bardziej uniwersalne." (Łukasz Talkowski, BestPCInfo.pl)

Test verdict: "Ci sentiamo di consigliare caldamente il nuovo Noctua per tutti gli usi, non solo per HTPC, tenere testa e battere soluzioni più grosse dimostra la cura in cui Noctua ripone nei suoi prodotti." (Michele Mura, hwresources.org)

Test verdict: "In the end, the Noctua NH-D9L, U9S and L9x65 are certainly among the best 92 mm low-profile coolers in the market that money can buy. For rig builders who are planning to set up a small HTPC and small form factor system, these coolers could be the perfect choice for you!" (Kevin Owi Kheng Him, OCDrift.com)
