  • The NF-S12A features the third evolution of Noctua's classic Straight Blade Design that has earned its S12 series countless recommendations from hardware journalists and enthusiasts around the world.
  • The NF-S12A's Anti-Stall Knobs reduce flow separation phenomena in medium to high impedance situations n thereby increase the fan's stall margin, that is even more versatile than its renowned predecessor .
  • Noctua's AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimization) frames feature integrated anti-vibration pads as well as Noctua's proprietary Stepped Inlet Design and Inner Surface Microstructures, both of which further refine the fan's performance/noise efficiency.
  • Noctua's Stepped Inlet Design adds turbulence to the influx to facilitate the transition for laminar flow to turbulent flow, that reduces tonal intake noise, improves flow attachment, incur suction capacity, especially in space restricted environments.
  • Integrated Anti-Vibration Pads made from extra-soft silicone minimize the transmission of minute vibrations while maintaining full compatibility with all standard screws and other mounting systems.
  • The latest version of Noctua's advanced Smooth Commutation Drive system ensures superb running smoothness by eliminating torque variations and switching noises. This makes the NF-S12A remarkably quiet even at very close distance.
  • Providing 1200, 900 and 700 rpm speed settings via the supplied Low-Noise and Ultra-Low-Noise Adapters, the NF-S12A FLX (Flexibility) can be fine-tuned for superior airflow or maximum quietness.
  • The NF-S12A features the further optimized second generation of Noctua's renowned, time-tested SSO bearing. With SSO2, the rear magnet is placed closer to the axis to provide even better stabilization, precision and durability.

Love noctua fans! The included accessories and packaging is great! You get what you pay for...
By Lester Hunter
Output is dispersed. Not good to focus air on a specific component
This is not silent by any means. I guess the motor itself is nearly silent, but the whoosh of the wind make is quite loud. If it moved a massive amount of air i could use a silencing adapter. However, i can barely feel the exhaust of this fan. It seems to move air near the edge, with nearly nothing in the center. I purchased this to mount on the side of my case to blow air on the vrms to keep them cool. I suppose it does a decent job of circulating air inside the case, but the output is not focused.

Worth it!
Works as advertised, quiet, easy install, would buy more when needed.

Great product!

Excellent quiet fan.
Using it in an entertainment center in the living room to exhaust the hot air from the cabinet storing my cable modem, router, and switches.
By Ruben Lane
Great quality. The packaging was very high quality
Great quality. The packaging was very high quality. I am not sure they are as silent as people make them out to be. I think most fans at 700rpm will be pretty quiet. Above 1000 rpm they are audible.
By Cathy Rice
Very reliable and comparable to liquid cooling, and very quiet
Noctua is the premier air-cooling manufacturer on the market. It won't get any better than this. I bought and installed these two years ago. They are so good at pushing and pulling air, that they rarely need any actual cleaning. I have a cooler master cosmos 2 case, as well. So coupled with that, i rarely ever hit 40c on my cpu. In fact, it takes the hottest days of the year for my temp cases to get close to that. On average, with high load of question and heavy gaming, my cpu temp stays around 33-38c, and in the winter about 27-33c. I've as well had the fans running on max speed for a year straight (with power cycles of course), and sometimes with 48hrs+ of uptime. Still no wear and tear. I don't foresee myself ever buying another brand of cooling fans again. These things deliver results comparable with liquid cooling.That's not even the best part. These things are quieter than my desk fan! I was amazed at how quiet these fans are even on max speed setting. They're practically silent on low and medium speeds. You'll need a good case to take full advantage of these fans, but even in a terrible case, these will outperform any other fan on the market, especially for its price.
