Bigbruin.com has covered quite a few Noctua
coolers over the years; and the quality, performance, and attention to detail has always impressed. In this review we're going to do something a little bit different and take a look at a half dozen of Noctua's larger diameter cooling fans. The fans have always been an impressive feature of their coolers, and this time they get to take center stage.
For those of you who aren't that familiar with Noctua, they are an Austrian company that has been in the business of providing elite cooling solutions since 2005. I would say that they are best known for their high-performance / low-noise CPU coolers, but they obviously also sell their unique cooling fans separately.
On hand for this roundup we have three 120mm fans and three 140mm fans. The specific models include the NF-S12A FLX, NF-S12A ULN, NF-S12A PWM, NF-A14 FLX, NF-A14 ULN, and NF-A15 PWM.
Before taking a look at each cooling fan and what it has to offer, let's take a look at all of them fans to be covered. The image below shows the edges of the six boxes Noctua shipped to us... From top to bottom you have the NF-S12A FLX, NF-S12A ULN, NF-S12A PWM, NF-A14 FLX, NF-A14 ULN, and NF-A15 PWM.
