The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.

Anybody who has been near their share of computer systems will appreciate that not all systems make the same amount of noise. There are a number of reasons for why this is so. Firstly, a computer makes noise for different reasons. Generally, anything mechanical is going to make noise.

120mm Noctua NF-F12 Industrial PPC 3000RPM PWM High Performance Fan is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all rounder Bought a pair of NF-F12s for the primary intake of my new build, behind the low resistance front panel of the corsair 750D airflow edition. These fans are very loud at 100%, but with the significant amount of air they move at low speeds they rarely have to run at any higher than 1000rpm, even under artificially high benchmark loads they rarely pass 1500rpm. At 750rpm the fans are barely audible, even in a quiet room and maintain an idle system at around 30C. At 1000rpm the fans are just a quiet hum in a quiet room, and will easily be lost behind any typical music, movie or game sounds. At this speed they are comfortable to sleep alongside and keep a relatively powerful system at a comfortable 35C under moderate constant load. Only under extended synthetic loads do the fans spin up to beyond 1500, at which point they do sound relatively loud but no worse than a typical fan. The only time the fans reach full potential is during startup in which they spin up to 100% for a few seconds and remind you just how loud they can be. TLDR: If you're willing to fork out the extra cost these fans make great intakes, quiet enough for everyday use and a big enough airflow at full speed to provide a safety net in case anything goes wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fan for the discerning PC builder I recently kitted out my Corsair 750D in preparation for the next upgrade cycle, and seeing as the rest of the case already has the 140mm version, these were the only choice. Great airflow, high potential RPM (if needed), solid build quality, and PWM functionality. No contest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best fan if you dont mind the noise and price as in title, simple. Great fan worth every penny!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fan! Great fan and good temps although quite noisy at high speeds but what else can you expect from a 3000RPM fan :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid fan. Quiet at low RPMs with massive potential when cranked up to 3k RPM. I bought these fans to replace the non-vibration mounted SP120 fans on my Corsair H100i. Safe to say, the installation was a hassle as I had no idea how to remove the top panel of my case as I didn't build this PC, but once I had it figured it was fine (apart from the damage I managed to do to the mounts on my H100i... oops). Once the fans were installed, they worked fine from the get go. I had no issues with plugging them in either, but the sleeving was annoying as it prevented me from tidying them away. However, this sleeving is very good quality and looks great when these are used as case fans I imagine or when they are mounted on a radiator that isn't directly above the motherboard. The fans themselves are noisy, yes, and the brown anti-vibration mounts do not look the best, but I am still fine with having these on show from my side panel window. The noise factor is easily reduced as the static pressure these fans provide at the RPMs of my old fans is around 1.5x as much, so they outperform them even at the same RPMs. Now onto my main gripe about these fans. The price. These fans are very, very expensive compared to others on the market. Yes, you are paying a premium for these fans as they are THE BEST on the market, but the lack of the standard accessories that Noctua normally provides and the lacklustre packaging is something that disappoints me with these particular fans. Overall, these fans are extremely good quality and perform as you would expect for the price, but the lack of standard accessories compared to other Noctua products and the lacklustre packaging mean that I have to give these fans a good rather than excellent rating for value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed. I purchased an Alpenfohn K2 mount doom air cooler, last year. Love it, great cooler. Kept my FX-8350 nice and cool between 32c-35c. Then in September I upgraded to the FX-9590 and the K2 kept it cool at 39c-42c. In January 2014, I bought a pair of Zotac 770GTX to put in SLI (ideally I wanted 2x780GTX but they were too expensive so I decided to go with these in the interim). Two weeks ago, I found a great bargain on Amazon for the Sapphire Trix R9-290 at £284. So I bought two (5 months on and the cheapest 780GTX was Zotac for £340, so the 290 Trix was £56 cheaper). Problem is whilst these bad boys are very good performers, they put out a lot of heat. I found when gaming, especially crysis3 my gpu's would go to 70c and 80c, cpu would overheat to 71c and BIOS safeties would shut down pc. I also got a lot of artefacts, stuttering, freezing when gaming with the 290's (never had any issues with the 770GTX-SLI#. No doubt summer weather has significant effect on pc temperature. I decided to go for a Coolermaster Nepton 140XL AIO liquid cooler from Amazon. Worked great for first day #Boinc/seti running in background and playing crysis 3, my cpu would hit 55c#. But the 140XL started playing havoc with my ZXR sound card and Asus Crosshair V formula Z motherboard. Spoke to CM euro tech support and the tech guy was flummoxed. He said probably electrical issue with pump. Had to RMA. I went back to my Alpenfohn K2. This time I decided to check the stock fan specs that came with the heatsink. Only 61CFM each!. No wonder my cpu was overheating. A friend told me about the Noctua NFF12-3k rpm #thanks Alex!#. Arrived today, installed. Using Asus AI suite and standard fan mode, cpu at 37c #with Boinc/seti off#. With Boinc/seti running in background, cpu was 46c #with stock Alpenfohn fans cpu was 55/56c#. With boinc running and playing crysis3, this time no crashes, no gpu stuttering or artefacts due to heat. Played 15 minutes easily and cpu was 64c, gpu1 was 70c and gpu2 was 65c. I am well impressed with these Noctua NFF12 fans. Ideally, I wanted the 14cm-3k rpm fans but no one had them in stock, so had to settle for these NFF12. But they have worked brilliantly. It goes to show, you don't need fancy and potentially fickle AIO liquid coolers. You just need a good quality heatsink and a pair of Noctua 3k-rpm fans. These fans are expensive but a very worthwhile investment bearing in mind performance and if you intend to keep them for long term use. They also come with 6 years manufacturer warranty. I have used other fans before like Akasa venom which claim to be 108CFM but when I put my hand over them, I cant feel a thing. The only two fans worth their weight in gold are these Noctua NFF12/14 #109 and 144 CFM respectively# and the coolermaster jetflo 120mm fans #95CFM) but the jetflo fans cant be fitted on a air cooler heatsink!. I am using the CM jetflo as case fans and these Noctua NFF12 as cpu heatsink fans and I can feel the turbine fan blades pushing gusts of air for both brands of fans. Highly recommend.
