The classic NF-R8 is a long-standing favourite among enthusiast users around the world and helped to found Noctua’s reputation as a top-tier manufacturer of premium quality quiet cooling components. The new redux edition reissues this award-winning model in a streamlined, accessibly priced package that has been reduced to the essential core: the NF-R8 premium fan. Its industry grade SSO-Bearing bearing, over 150.000 hours MTTF rating and full 6 years manufacturer’s warranty make the NF-R8 redux a proven premium choice that provides trusted Noctua quality at an attractive price point. The 1800rpm PWM version features Noctua’s proprietary NE-FD1 PWM IC for automatic speed control, which allows to strike a perfect balance between high cooling capacity and low noise operation in each given situation.
Proven NF-R8 design
Tens of thousands of quiet cooling enthusiasts around the globe swear by Noctua's classic NF-R8. Thanks to its impressive quietness, excellent performance and impeccable quality, the NF-R8 has become an established reference for quiet 80mm fans.
Streamlined redux edition
The redux product line reissues some of Noctua's most popular, award-winning models by presenting them in streamlined, accessibly priced packages. All redux edition products are industry proven, time-tested models that helped to found Noctua's reputation as a first-tier supplier of premium grade low noise cooling equipment.
Custom-designed PWM IC with SCD
Supporting fully automatic speed control via PWM, the fan uses Noctua's 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.
Stops at 0% PWM
When the fan is set to 0% PWM duty cycle by the motherboard or PWM fan controller, it will stop. This makes it ideal for creating setups with semi-passive cooling that automatically turn the fans off and thus run completely silent at idle if thermals allow.
Combining the proven concept of hydrodynamic bearings 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.
Users can choose from Noctua's wide range of optional accessories such as anti-vibration mounts, Low-Noise-Adaptors, y-cables, 3:4 pin adaptors or extension cables to upgrade redux edition fans according to their individual needs.
