Noctua NA-FC1, 4-Pin PWM Fan Controller (Black)

in 30 days
In stock.
Ships from United States.
  • Compact, highly flexible controller for 4-pin PWM fans
  • Works as a manual speed reducer or in tandem with the automatic motherboard fan control: achieve truly quiet operation, even with high-speed PWM fans such as Noctua’s industrialPPC series
  • “No stop” mode: prevents the fan from falling below a speed of 300rpm in order to avoid BIOS fan errors
  • Includes a 3-way splitter cable for controlling up to 3 fans simultaneously
  • 6-year manufacturer’s warranty

The NA-FC1 is a compact, highly flexible controller for 4-pin PWM fans that can both work on its own for manual speed reduction and also work in tandem with the automatic motherboard fan control. By adjusting the NA-FC1's speed control dial, users can either manually set a PWM duty cycle from 0 to 100% or reduce the PWM duty cycle supplied by PC motherboards in order to have the fans running slower than the automatic motherboard fan control would allow. While the brightness of the orange status LED provides visual feedback on the current dial setting, the push button allows the NA-FC1 to be switched into no stop mode, which prevents the fan from falling below a speed of 300rpm. Thanks to the supplied 3-way split cable and power supply adaptor, up to 3 fans can be controlled simultaneously.


PWM based control
While most fan controllers are voltage based, the NA-FC1 uses the more sophisticated Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) technique that allows for more efficient control and lower minimum speeds, regardless of the fan's starting voltage.  
Power supply adaptor
As powering multiple higher wattage fans from a single motherboard fan header may damage the motherboard, the NA-FC1 includes an NA-AC4 adaptor that powers the device directly from the power supply unit while simultaneously receiving PWM input from the motherboard and forwarding RPM information. This makes it ideal for controlling multiple high-speed fans such as Noctua's 3000rpm industrialPPC models.  
3-way splitter cable
The supplied 3-way splitter cable allows the connection of up to three 4-pin PWM fans in order to control them simultaneously. Even more fans can be controlled at once when using additional NA-YC1 splitter cables that are supplied with many Noctua fans and available as an optional accessory kit (NA-SYC1).  
No stop mode
If the small push button is pressed and the green status LED is on, the NA-FC1 operates in no stop mode, which means that it will not allow the fan to fall below 300rpm, regardless of the speed setting and the input PWM duty cycle from the motherboard, thus avoiding BIOS fan errors.

  • NA-EC1 input cable

  • NA-AC4 input cable with power supply adaptor

*Please note that many PWM fans have a minimum speed higher than 300rpm and as the function of no stop mode is to not let fans go below 300rpm, it is only useful for fans which are generally able to go below this speed. For example, a fan with 500rpm minimum speed will act the same with no stop mode on and off.


Manual control mode

If the NA-FC1 doesn't receive an input PWM signal from the motherboard, it works as a simple manual controller that allows the duty cycle to be set from 0 to 100%. This makes it ideal for manually slowing down high-speed PWM fans such as Noctua's iPPC series to achieve consistently quiet operation.
