Noctua NF-A12x25 Fan Review

👤by Matthew Hodgson Comments 📅17-05-18
Four and a half years of investment into research and development, for any product, would almost certainly yield impressive results, but when all of that effort is focussed onto one fan, available in one colour and one size, the results are amazing.

Our testing showed this fan blows everything else out of the water, including the Corsair ML-120, a fan known for its excellent performance.

The construction of the fan is “no compromise” in every single way, going to unbelievable lengths to ensure optimal performance and minimal noise in the process. The fan is easily the heaviest we’ve encountered, tipping the scales at a mighty 201g. A Corsair ML Series 120mm fan, for example, weighs 148g. Noctua believe in their product so much, they tag it with a 6-year warranty; not shabby at all!

To round up, if you’re after the best performance or silent operation, this is the only fan we can recommend, full stop. Yeah, it’s pricey at £26, but that is absolutely warranted in our opinion.

Noctua’s design team have definitely earned their bonus this year; the NF-A12x25 is incredible in every way, but can we get a black one please?
