... of those fans and am getting at they're amazing. I want to clear some things up about ... By adam on The month of january 7, 2015 I simply bought a couple of these fans and am getting at they're amazing.
I wish to obvious several things up relating to this fan. I see people complaining about this being loud.
This fan, Because the title states, is 3,000 RPMs.
Any fan, does not matter who causes it to be, at 3,000 revoltions per minute will probably be loud. You are moving a little propeller 3,000 rotations one minute, 50 rotations another, developing a vortex, fans smashing against air and blowing it. That will be loud automatically.
This fan though is really a pwm fan. That means it has the ability to be controlled by your motherboards bios if it has a pwm (4 PIN) header available.
PWM means Pulse Width Modulation. Which means that the fan always receives 12v of energy that it requires, in a kind of a pulse, a go of 12vs, but then gets to be a break, or perhaps a pause in the present. Once the fan gets to be a break it slows lower and then will get another shot and receives its electricity again and ramps support. The greater breaks sent, the slower it is going. The less breaks it will get and more pulses the faster it is going. Consider it as being flicking the fan blade together with your finger.
These breaks are controlled from your motherboard. It decides the number of breaks to transmit in line with the tempature of the CPU.
Motherboards like Asus permit you to set the thermal limits and fan speed limits. For example high is 55c and low is 30c. Therefore if the cpu reaches 55c then run the fans at 100%. When the CPU reaches 30c then run at 40% speed. If between 30c and 55c then run between 40% - 100% according to between temp. Therefore the closer it will get to 55c the faster the fan spins.
This getting pwm is essential because despite the fact that its a 3,000rpm fan that does not mean it must run at 3,000 revoltions per minute. This fan is made to run lower.

A 120mm fan spinning at 3000 Revoltions per minute will probably be loud.
I purchased these because I am using a custom loop in a small (fractal arc small r2) chassis and I did not like my temps using NF-F12 fans.
with such rather, my CPU temp under load dropped 6C, and GPU dropped 4C.
They work great as PWM. Quiet until needed. I recieve no noticeable variation in vibration with 5 of those at 3000 Revoltions per minute.
they appear great too. I am glad Noctua began producing their top quality fans in various colors.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By Anon on April 10, 2015
They are much quicker than the conventional versions. When combined with a regulator, they are ideal for radiators. I made use of those to replace a push pull system that used antec on 1 side and along with a powerful industrial exhaust fan alternatively. The antec could keep temps lower under regular use and the exhaust fans were started up for gaming.
While using highly accurate scientific approach to while using fan to blow air on my small face, in the same seem level, the 2 fans offer a similar experience in output, Contrary, the antec appears to blow more. Once installed on the radiator however, the Noctua is much more quiet when maintaining the same temp as the antec (return coolant really measured). Now i operate the fans at 40% normally which will keep the temps less than once the antec were at 100%. After I place the Noctua at 100%, it's able to keep the temps reasonable during gaming without sounding like jet exhaust (that old industrial exhaust fans).Comment Was this review useful for you?

By Chris Ellis on August 18, 2014
These fans are the most useful fans you can purchase at this time. Their Static pressure and sheer amount of air moved is astonishing. That being stated, you may need a fan controller. They are able to become loud. They increase to 3000rpm that is rarely necessary and means they are seem just like a weed wacker. These fans are ideal for the situation or a radiator/heatsink. The standard is of these a greater standard than every other fans that it might be difficult to buy other things at this time. the cost is steep, but having a 6 year warranty its worth the money. These can without doubt be the best fans for many years.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback... Appreciate your feedback.If the review is inappropriate, Please tell us.

By Snagglepuss on June 3, 2015
Nicely built fan, quieter than many in the same RPMs and with lots of power.
Concerning the negative reviews concerning the noise:
This can be a PWM fan like the fan that is included with Intel's CPU coolers i.e. it utilizes a 4 pin link with control its speed. With PWM manage it can run as slow as ~200 revoltions per minute and you need to be a bat to listen to it at this type of speed. Some motherboards or fan controllers do DC control (Current) instead of PWM (pulse). You are able to manage it using these but the slowest it may run is ~1500, quite audible. Some motherboards (like Asus) come with an option in BIOS to change between Electricity and PWM modes, it is recommended to make certain it's running in PWM.
and, Obviously, don't buy a PWM fan if you don't possess a PWM connector to give it.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By Caleb Cooley on April 10, 2015
This fan rocks !. I got myself a couple of those to replace a set of Noctua NF - F12's placed in a push-pull setup on the 120mm radiator. The NF12's just could not awesome my overclock to my liking using the 1500 rpms they top out at. The NF - F12's were ideal for stock speed and even moderate overclocks and were probably restricted to my cheap rad.
Enter this option. My prime 95 temp dropped 10 levels Celsius. Enough stated. Anybody complaining about noise, google pwm. These fans are as quiet because the NF12's at equal rpm's. If you're expecting silence, you have to limit the rpms or setup an admirer profile. No 120mm fan spinning at 3000 rpms will seem much better than these fans. purchase these. There aren't any better fans available.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback... Appreciate your feedback.If the review is inappropriate, Please tell us.
