The time has come to look at yet another 120mm fan from the Austrian company Noctua. This time it’s the NF-P12 model, and previously we’ve reviewed the NF-S12-800 and NF-S12-1200. The fan is sort of atypical, because of the colour and the 9 fan blades instead of the usual 7 blades, but more about that later.
The NF-P12 is packed in a brown/blue box with a little window, revealing the fan and one of the rubber pins used for fastening the fan.
The box contains the fan, 4 vibration reducing rubber pins for fastening the fan, 4 cutting screws, 1 power plug for 4-pin Molex cables, as well as a blue and a black cable for reducing the voltage, which we’ll explain in the specifications part.
These are the specifications:
Noctua NF-p12 without adapters
• (+/- 10%) RPM 1300
• Airflow 92, 3 CM/h
• Acoustic noise 19dB (A)
Noctua NF-p12 with Low.Noise.Adapter (black)
• (+/- 10%) RPM 1100
• Airflow 78, 5 CM/h
• Acoustic noise 16,9dB (A)
Noctua NF-p12 with Ultra.Low.Noise.Adapter (blue)
• (+/- 10%) RPM 900
• Airflow 63,4 CM/h
• Acoustic noise 12,6dB(A)
As seen above, the fan can be used at 3 levels, depending on which power cable you use.
