The classic NF-R8 80mm fan helped to found Noctua’s reputation as a top-tier manufacturer of premium quality quiet cooling components and still impresses users with its exquisite quietness and superb performance. The new PWM version features Noctua’s novel, custom designed PWM IC for fully automatic control and ultra-low power consumption. Equipped with Noctua’s signature SSO bearing and topped off with a 6 years manufacturer’s warranty, the NF-R8 PWM is a proven premium choice for the highest demands.

  • newegg Proven NF-R8 Design Tens of thousands of quiet cooling enthusiasts swear by Noctua’s classic NF-R8. Its impressive quietness, excellent performance and impeccable, time-tested quality made the R8 a default choice for 80mm quiet cooling.
  • newegg Custom designed PWM IC with SCD Supporting fully automatic PWM speed control, the NF-R8 PWM uses Noctua’s novel, custom designed NE-FD1 PWM IC that integrates Smooth Commutation Drive (SCD) technology. By providing smoother torque impulses, SCD suppresses PWM switching noises and thus makes the fan quieter at lower speeds.
  • newegg Low-Noise Adaptor The NF-R8 PWM is supplied with a Low-Noise Adaptor (L.N.A.) that reduces the maximum fan speed from 1800 to 1300rpm. The L.N.A can be used either to run the fan at a fixed speed of 1300rpm or to cap the maximum speed when using automatic PWM control.
  • newegg Extensive Cabling Options The fan’s short 20cm primary cable minimises cable clutter in typical applications while the supplied 30cm extension provides extended reach when necessary. Both cables are fully sleeved and a 4-pin y-cable allows you to connect a second NF-R8 fan to the same PWM fan header for automatic control.
  • newegg SSO-Bearing Combining the proven concept of hydrodynamic bearing with an additional magnet that supports the self-stabilisation of the rotor axis, Noctua’s time-tested SSO-Bearing technology has become synonymous with supremely quiet operation and exceptional long-term stability.

5 out of 5 eggs3 of these-- WORTH THE MONEY

Pros: Near silent
*Moves alot of air
*Comes with adapter with a resister to make it even quieter
*Comes with PWM extension--like 4 inches long
*Comes with PWM Splitter
*All cables and adapters are nicely sleeved
*6 year warrenty

Cons: *Very high cost to put in all of my devices, recommend slowly integrating noctua fans into your environment to avoid the sticker shock

Other Thoughts: Using these to replace the fans in my 2U enclosure. Unfortunately Redux fans are not meaningfully cheaper than these.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes exactly what it said

Pros: Quiet
Moves Air
Variable Speed

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this to include in a case that was not supposed to have a fan. It did, but I used this one anyway. It seems to move a good amount of air, and adjusts speed based on internal temperature. well worth the purchase price.

Even at full speed I don't hear this, it is extremely quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Fan!

Pros: I'm using this fan on an icydock mb975sp hotswap bay. The fan keeps the 3 drives spinning inside at around 33-35 degrees even under full load and does it all while be nearly silent with the low noise adapter!

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT QUALITY PRODUCT

Pros: This is one of the best quality product i ever got, the packaging, accessories, the fan itself, i never bought Noctua before but i am sold, i will definitly buy again.

Cons: There is none but ill admit it that it is still a little pricey compare to other brands of fans, but for the quality, its tottaly worth it

Other Thoughts: Bought 5 of these to air a old thermaltake xaser III, ambiant temperature is around-25-30 max, not that bad for 80mm fans

5 out of 5 eggsQuietly Ugly

Pros: It's a PWM fan, so its speed is variable based on temperature. Can get faster (louder) when it needs to move more air, but usually operates at low RPM and is very quiet. High quality product with extra wires to suit different installations. Got this with the 20% off coupon that is sometimes offered for case fans.

Cons: I'm going to point his out just to say it: It's a super ugly color. They couldn't just go with black or grey? Pinkish brown tones? Really?

Other Thoughts: It really is fugly to look at. I'm complaining because I have a clear sided case and because I like to complain when I write reviews. I still gave it 5 eggs though because it works the way it's supposed to and it looks like it does in the picture and I knew what I was buying.

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet!

Pros: Quiet, PWM, Quieter than fan it replaced.

Cons: Moves less air than fan it replaced.

Other Thoughts: Bought this so I could enable motherboard control of fan speed on AMD CPU cooler. Not much point in that since this fan has to run a full or almost full speed to cool. Even at top speed it is quieter than the Cougar 140mm fan next to it. Using this in a nMedia wooden case with a Phenom quad core.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Quiet and Strong.

Cons: Silicon dampener plugs hard to install due to my cases's design. Not Noctua's fault.

Other Thoughts: Wonderful, worth the money. I would go all Noctua f I could somehow put one on my GFx card. :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fan

Pros: quiet
puts out a decent amount of air
tons of accessories and cables
great build quality
braided cable

Cons: not the best fan aesthetically, but for the great performance i can put up with that

Other Thoughts: used it to replace a cpu fan for a 3 Ghz core 2 duo, even when it does spin up at load i cant even hear it over the sound of my hard drives

5 out of 5 eggsGood fans.

Pros: Absolute quiet, even at 80% it's barely noticeable. Also when PWM kicks in and changing the rpm, the noise is smooth. However, like every other fans on the market, once the fan is at 100%, the noise is starting to be noticeable (80mm fans are noisy). But it's still quieter than most fans.

Cons: NOTHING. It's Noctua, bro.

Other Thoughts: Replaced my SilenX fans (these babies run at 3000 rpm and ~30 dB!) as case fans. Now my computer is finally quiet.
