Noctua NF-S12A FLX 120mm Cooling Fan Review


Summary and Comments


Noctua knows how to design a fan, they put a lot of work and and effort in the research and development of them as I’m sure you’ve noticed. They make fans like no other, they’re unique in their colors and of course the designs of them, they look like no other. The designs of the fans serve a true purpose, and that is to keep things quiet but yet move the most amount of air they possibly can.

The Noctua NF-S12A FLX fan is an excellent choice if you want to keep your CPU cool either using common air cooling or liquid cooling using a radiator. The fan can also be used as a case fan and surely it will work just as good in that position as it does on a CPU cooler.

The fan can be run at three different speeds, it all depends on your needs, you just need to choose the appropriate adapter and you’re ready to go.

The fan includes nice extras like your choice or metal or silicone fasteners and an adapter to go from the 3pin connection on the fan to a standard molex on your power supply. The power cable on the fan is short and this is done purposely as it doesn’t nee to be very long if you’re using it for an air cooler, but Noctua included an extension in case you need to place the fan farther from a power connection.
