Noctua NF-F12 PWM Fan 120mm
Product Overview
Teaming up eleven stator guide vanes with a specially conceived seven blade impeller, the NF-F12’s Focused Flow™ system creates outstanding static pressure and focuses the airflow for superior performance on heatsinks and radiators.

At the same time, a wide range of advanced aerodynamic design measures, second generation SSO-Bearings and Noctua’s new, custom designed PWM IC for fully automatic control guarantee astounding quietness of operation. The NF-F12 comes with modular cabling, integrated anti-vibration pads and two speed settings for full flexibility. Its commanding performance, exhaustive set of features and Noctua’s trusted premium quality make it an elite choice for use on air coolers, radiators and other pressure demanding applications.
Features
Focused Flow Frame
Designed for pressure demanding applications such as heatsinks and radiators, the Focused Flow™ frame features eleven stator guide vanes that straighten, channel and focus the airflow, which allows the NF-F12 to rival the performance of conventional fans running at much faster speeds.

Varying Angular Distance and Vortex Control Notches
The NF-F12’s stator guide vanes are set out in Varying Angular Distance and feature Vortex-Control Notches. Both measures help to spread the noise emission over a broader frequency spectrum and thus make the fan’s sound pattern more agreeable to the human ear.

Heptaperf Impeller
Custom designed for the new Focused Flow™ frame and to work in tandem with the eleven stator guide vanes, the NF-F12’s seven blade Heptaperf™ impeller has been carefully optimised to achieve a perfect balance between power and quietness.

Stepped Inlet Design
Noctua’s Stepped Inlet Design adds turbulence to the influx in order to facilitate the transition from laminar flow to turbulent flow, which reduces tonal intake noise, improves flow attachment and increases suction capacity, especially in space restricted environments.

Inner Surface Microstructures
With the tips of the fan blades ploughing through the boundary layer created by the Inner Surface Microstructures, flow separation from the suction side of the blades is significantly suppressed, which results in reduced blade passing noise and improved airflow and pressure efficiency.

Integrated Anti-Vibration Pads
Integrated Anti-Vibration Pads made from extra-soft silicone minimise the transmission of minute vibrations while maintaining full compatibility with all standard mounting systems and fan clips used on heatsinks.

SSO2 Bearing
The NF-F12 is the first fan to feature the further optimised 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 stabilisation, precision and durability.

Metal bearing shell
In order to guarantee the highest possible degree of manufacturing precision, minimum tolerance and excellent long-term stability, the NF-F12 sports a CNC milled bearing shell made entirely from brass.

Custom designed PWM IC with SCD
Supporting fully automatic PWM speed control, the NF-F12 uses Noctua’s novel, custom designed NE-FD1 PWM IC that integrates Smooth Commutation Drive (SCD) technology. By providing smoother torque impulses, SCD suppresses PWM switching noises and thus makes the fan quieter at lower speeds.

Ultra-Low Power Consumption
The NF-F12 draws only 0.6W, which is more than 50% less than many fans in the same speed range. This doesn’t only make it eco-friendly but also cuts down the electricity bill: Compared to a typical 2W fan, this allows you to save about half the price of the NF-F12 after 5 years of continuous use.

Low-Noise Adaptor
The NF-F12 is supplied with a Low-Noise Adaptor (L.N.A.) that reduces the maximum fan speed from 1500 to 1200rpm. The L.N.A can be used either to run the fan at a fixed speed of 1200rpm or to cap the maximum speed when using automatic PWM control.

Extensive Cabling Options
The fan’s short 20cm primary cable minimises cable clutter in typical applications while the supplied 30cm extension provides extended reach when necessary. Both cables are fully sleeved and a 4-pin y-cable allows to connect a second NF-F12 fan to the same PWM fan header for automatic control.

6 years manufacturer’s warranty
Noctua fans are renowned for their impeccable quality and outstanding longevity. Like all Noctua fans, the NF-F12 features an MTBF rating of more than 150.000 hours and comes with a full 6 years manufacturer’s warranty.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Noctua 120mm fan for penetrating heatsink & rads etc Bolted this on to my Xeon heatsink, because I could, so now its equally quiet as before, only now it has 3x premium (and unmistakable) Noctua fans! These are generally THE fans that linustechtips and others use as the benchmark/control... There's good reason! They're quiet, and they push plenty of air! 05 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by its a noctua they're a bit pricey but for what you get in the package i think its worth it. 17 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Best you can buy as none comes close, very good quality and silent. 21 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by No sound at all Put two of these on my h100i few people said the performance wouldn't be as good as the original Corsair h100i fans I'm sorry but the performance is exactly the same and it's so much quieter especially at night time. 04 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by good quality fan with lots of extra cables and quiet. This fan works perfectly for me as a 4 pin case exhaust fan. Not keen on the colour otherwise would give it 5 stars. 16 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent fans Recommend this for out take fans or intake i tried to use it has a cpu fan but it made the temps higher has the rpm at stock are 200rpm so reccomend to use these for case not cpu they do a great job at keeping all the heat out of the case i'll sure be buying a few more of these has i prefer these over corsair's sp120s. 12 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent quality Great quality very quiet i have swapped out my NZXT case fans keeps the inside a lot cooler and practically silent. 18 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Silent and powerful for my needs. I am using H100i water cooling for cpu. Stock fans were good in case of flow and cooling but were way loud. I was looking for replacement and as I know some good brands I can say Noctua is excellent. To be honest only thing I do not like about them is their old style look, I wanted something black+green to match my rig colors and lightning. :D But in final verdict I always prefer quality and power over cosmetics. And that's what I've got from these. If you want to ask me anything, ask me. I would talk about them in very details. But people do not read anything what isn't brief :P (y) 21 March 2015

Multiple on 1 fan header?

Noctua says that these fans draw a max. of 0.05 amps. If this is correct, does this mean I could power many of these fans through just one fan header? Like 4 through a 1 amp cpu fan header?

Answer: 
It'd probably be a good idea to see if you can find out how much amperage & wattage your CPU fan headers can supply before hooking up 4 per header, (Although saying that I've hooked up 2+ on all of my motherboard headers) (notably not this fan), so I would say you should be just fine!
