Product on Review: Arctic BioniX P120
Street Price: GBP 13.99 / USD $15.99
Arctic have been around for a while now, best known for their cooling products, particularly the MX series of thermal compounds and the Freezer range of CPU coolers.
Today we look at one of their new 120mm fan offerings, the BioniX P120. This new fan is optimised for increased static pressure, making it useful on heatsinks and radiators, while other refinements include reduced power consumption through the use of a Neodym-Iron-Boron-Magnet motor, decreased motor vibration with clever magnet placement and, perhaps best of all, an extended lifespan via reduced operating temperatures.
The P120 utilises the PWM connection standard, allowing a range of 200 to 2100 RPM as well as an idle-mode, which stops the fan completely when the PWM signal drops below 5%, ensuring absolute silence when the system doesn’t require airflow.
The BioniX P120 will be available early December, black & white or black & red, with a price tag of £13.99/$15.99. The specifications certainly sound promising so let’s take a closer look and see how it performs.
Noctua on the NF-P12 Redux:
During the development of the new BioniX P120, special emphasis was placed on a focused airstream and thus a high static pressure. The fan guarantees extremely efficient cooling, even with increased air resistance. Therefore, the BioniX P120 is particularly suitable for use on heatsinks and radiators.
