Noctua NF-P12 PWM 120mm Fan
Specifically conceived for pressure demanding applications such as CPU cooling, the classic NF-P12 120mm fan helped to found Noctua's reputation as a top-tier manufacturer of premium quality quiet cooling components and still impresses users with its exquisite quietness and superb performance. The new PWM version features Noctua's novel, custom designed PWM IC for fully automatic control and ultra-low power consumption. Equipped with Noctua's signature SSO-Bearings and topped off with a 6 years manufacturer's warranty, the NF-P12 PWM is a proven premium choice for the highest demands.
Noctua NF-P12 PWM Features
Proven NF-P12 Design
Proven NF-P12 Design Tens of thousands of quiet cooling enthusiasts swear by Noctua's classic NF-P12. Its impressive quietness, excellent performance and impeccable, time-tested quality made the P12 a default choice for 120mm quiet cooling.
Pressure-optimized Nine-Blade Design
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.
Vortex Control Notches
Noctua’s signature Vortex-Control Notches split up trailing edge vortices and thus spread the fan’s noise emission over a wider range of frequencies. This measure makes the NF-P12 PWM sound more pleasant to the human ear.
Combining the proven concept of hydrodynamic bearing with an additional magnet that supports the self-stabilisation of the rotor axis, Noctua’s time-tested SSO-Bearing technology has become synonymous with supremely quiet operation and exceptional long-term stability.
Custom designed PWM IC with SCD
Supporting fully automatic PWM speed control, the NF-P12 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-P12 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-P12 after 5 years of continuous use.
The NF-P12 is supplied with a Low-Noise Adapter (L.N.A.) that reduces the maximum fan speed from 1300 to 900rpm. The L.N.A can be used either to run the fan at a fixed speed of 900rpm or to cap the maximum speed when using automatic PWM control.
Extensive Cabling Options
The fan’s short 20cm primary cable minimizes 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-P12 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-P12 features an MTBF rating of more than 150.000 hours and comes with a full 6 years manufacturer’s warranty.
