As the third generation of Noctua’s signature S12 series quiet case fans, the NF-S12A has received more than 250 awards and recommendations from the international press. The NF-S12A improves the airflow/noise efficiency of its renowned predecessor by up to 8% with a further refined blade design with Anti-Stall Knobs that works in tandem with the new AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) frame. The ULN version provides super-slow 800/600rpm speed settings for ultra-low-noise applications and highly noise sensitive users who demand near-silent operation. With superb running smoothness, SSO2 bearing and Noctua’s trusted premium quality, it is a perfect choice for customers who want to enjoy quiet case cooling.

  • newegg Award-winning S12 design The NF-S12A features the third evolution of Noctua’s classic Straight Blade Design that has earned its S12 series countless recommendations from hardware journalists and enthusiasts around the world. Further optimised for even better airflow/noise efficiency, it makes the NF-S12A an ideal quiet case fan.
  • newegg Anti-Stall Knobs The NF-S12A’s Anti-Stall Knobs reduce flow separation phenomena in medium to high impedance situations and thereby increase the fan’s stall margin. This means that the NF-S12A is even more versatile than its renowned predecessor and can achieve better performance on heatsinks and radiators.
  • newegg Advanced engineering for quiet cooling Noctua’s AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) frames feature integrated anti-vibration pads as well as Noctua’s unique Stepped Inlet Design and Inner Surface Microstructures, both of which further refine the fan’s performance/noise efficiency. And the latest version of Noctua’s advanced Smooth Commutation Drive system ensures superb running smoothness by eliminating torque variations and switching noises.
  • newegg SSO2 Bearing The NF-S12A features the further optimised second generation of Noctua’s renowned, time-tested SSO bearing. With SSO2, the rear magnet is placed closer to the axis to provide even better stabilisation, precision and durability.
  • newegg 2 speed settings for maximum quietness Providing 800 and 600 rpm speed settings via the supplied adapter, the ULN (Ultra-Low-Noise) version is tailor made for serious silent enthusiasts who demand super-slow running speeds and utmost quietness of operation.
  • 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.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Fans

Pros: These fans are amazing. Not only did they come with buffers preinstalled (no more buying the little circles from home depot) they also came with 3 different connectors for the fans to cover whatever your needs are.

Once I got these things powered up, i could tell how amazing they are. They were so quiet it was unbelievable. I would know, I sleep with my computer tower not but 2 feet from my head. It's always been a loud tower with 8 fans. I always had only 5 running at night to keep it quieter. Well, it never was quiet. Once I put in 3 of these fans to replace the noisiest fans in the case, I can't even hear it! I never even turn on the other fans now because they're so loud compared to how it is just running normal with these fans. SO AMAZING!

I will definitely replace all the fans in my machine with these

Cons: None yet! Hopefully they last, maintaining their quality!

Cons: Price and its really not for heatsinks
