Noctua introduces NF-P12 high-impedance fan
Noctua introduces NF-P12 high-impedance fan
Vienna, November 5th, 2007 - Only 14 months after the release of the NF-S12 series, which has received more than 100 awards and recommendations from leading international websites and magazines, Noctua expands its line-up of 120mm fans with the NF-P12 high-impedance fan. The NF-P12 has been specifically developed for high-impedance applications such as CPU coolers, water-cooling radiators or cases with tight fan grills and features psychoacoustic optimizations that make it less annoying to the human ear.
"One of the main difficulties in the design and development of axial fans is to achieve a good balance of the three key parameters of airflow, pressure and noise", explains Mag. Manfred Stadler from the Austrian Institute for Heat-Transmission and Fan Technology (Österreichisches Institut für Wärmeübertragung und Ventilatorentechnik, ÖIWV). "Even in the field of PC cooling, each application has different requirements though: Whereas CPU coolers require high static pressure, it's mostly the airflow to noise ratio that counts when it comes to case fans. Common fans are usually designed to be all-round solutions compromising in certain areas in order to achieve solid results in all typical applications. Noctua, on the other hand, is following a two-fold approach with its NF-S12 and NF-P12 fan series in order to achieve optimal results at various applications: While the NF-S12 was optimized so as to provide a class-leading airflow to noise ratio in the lower speed ranges and therefore makes for an excellent case fan, the NF-P12 was designed to produce high airflow and an outstanding amount of static pressure, which makes it perfect for use on CPU coolers and other high-impedance applications."With its nine large, closely spaced blades, the NF-P12 achieves no less than 1.68mm H²O and 92.3m³/h at 1300 rpm. Thanks to psychoacoustic optimizations, the NF-P12 is nonetheless surprisingly quiet: The Vortex-Control Notches at the trailing edges allow for the flows along the suction and pressure side to mix more smoothly and spread the noise emission over a wider range of frequencies. As a result, the NF-P12's noise pattern is perceived as much less annoying.
Like the NF-S12, the NF-P12 is equipped with Noctua's tried and tested SSO-Bearing that guarantees maximum long-term stability and excellent running smoothness. On top of that, the NF-P12's running smoothness is further increased by Noctua's new Smooth Commutation Drive system, which ensures a smoother transition between the stator coils. The NF-P12 has an MTBF of over 150.000 hours and comes with 6 years manufacturer's warranty. Using the supplied Low-Noise and Ultra-Low-Noise adaptors, the fan's speed can be reduced to 1100 resp. 900 rpm.
Price and availability
The NF-P12 is available with immediate effect at a recommended price of EUR 19.90 / USD 24.90.
Noctua comes from a cooperation between the Austrian Rascom Computerdistribution Ges.m.b.H and the Taiwanese Kolink International Corporation and has a development partnership with the Austrian Institute of Heat Transmission and Fan Technology (Österreichisches Institut für Wärmeübertragung und Ventilatorentechnik, ÖIWV). These connections form the key to the development of sound-optimised premium components "Designed in Austria": The partnership with the ÖIWV permits the application of latest technology in methods of scientific measurement instrumentation, calculation and simulation in the R&D process. Rascom's long, customer-orientated experience in developing and distributing sound-optimised high-end components ensures a clear focus on the users' needs. The use of Kolink's advanced manufacturing technology and ultra-modern production plants allows Noctua to efficiently implement its technical edge and provide solutions of the highest standard in quality and performance to the customer.
