Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm Fan Review

The infamous beige and brown colour scheme of Noctua fans may be "make
or break" for some people's buying preferences, but that hasn't
stopped the Noctua NF-F12s being some of the most respected 120mm fans
on the market. Surprisingly, we've yet to take a look at the Noctua
NF-F12 fans here at eTeknix and today we've managed to get some in
from Noctua to have a good look at. In an era when consumers are being
increasingly more fussy about aesthetics, quality and noise, Noctua
have managed to make a name for themselves with the NF-F12s.

We are going to walk you briefly through the Noctua NF-F12 fans and
show you how their acoustic performance stacks up against some
competing fans. Unfortunately we can't do any CFM-airflow tests as we
lack the expensive equipment to do so, also using proxy measurements
like fan performance on CPU heatsinks is a very hit-and-miss process
because different heatsinks require different things - some benefit
from static pressure, others from high airflow and others from a mix
of both. Add to that the fact you can start playing around with single
or dual fan configurations, PWM speeds or fixed speeds like
500/1000/1500RPM, different testing environments like cases or open
air test benches and suddenly you've got more graphs than you can
shake a stick at - let alone draw accurate conclusions from.
