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.

Perfect case fan use 1/7/2017 11:58:53 AM

Pros: Header on mobo only gave me a option for one system case fan. Ordering this came with Y adapter that allowed me to install two fans in mid case. Temps in case have been able to pull fresh air from front and exhaust heat from the rear. With pc on full load fans are very quiet.

Cons: No type of cons about this product. Everything has performed as expected.

Overall Review: You pay a higher price for this fan, with the add on's that are included you can't go wrong on choosing this for your rig

Awesome! 6/15/2016 8:33:31 AM

Pros: Silent, pushes a lot of air. You get what you pay for!

Cons: People can't spell "quiet"
Now I have to replace all my fans with Noctua fans
Reading dumb comments about the colors of fans or lack of LED's

Overall Review: Honestly, if you have advanced to the point where you are considering Noctua fans, you shouldn't be concerned with colored fans with colored lasers shooting out of them. The Ali****re website is that way ---->

Overall Review: Pricey but worth it I use it in an HTPC as a replacement for the stock fan on the cpu cooler. It keeps the cpu as cool as the stock fan and is much quieter

3 of these-- WORTH THE MONEY 9/23/2014 12:10:11 PM

Pros: Near silent

*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

Does exactly what it said 8/8/2014 9:09:39 PM

Pros: Quiet
Moves Air
Variable Speed

Cons: None

Overall Review: 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.
