The absolute best fan in its size for radiator or CPU tower cooler. More quiet and efficient than the competition.

Uses this for 8 of 13 fans in my machine (4 on a 480 row and 4 as case fans). Very quiet. Uses F.O. 2x Aquasite fan control for all fans and both pumps. The 8 NF-A12x25 fans are configured as 'daily drivers'. This setup usually stays below 30dBA even at slightly heavier work loads over some time.

Very impressed by both air flow and sound level. Drive 8p in my chassis and it keeps an even fine flow. 4pcs sits on my radiator 240mm (push-pull sandwich) and cools the processor without problems. 3 front (push) and 1st rear (pull). Worth mentioning is that it includes an extension cable and adapter that lowers the voltage (rpm) from 2000 rpm to 1700 rpm max and splitter.

There is no better fan in terms of quality and sound level. They are starting to come in black as well, so the disadvantage of the Noctua color may soon be gone.

Updates previous text when the can is filled with these, at PWM they are around 1200-1300rpm as max which is optimal if you want the most skins without it being too loud, sounds a lot at 1700-2000rpm (1500rpm is the pain limit for me) Works best on radiator and runs two on the water cooler that cools the graphics card, a small gpu PWM adapter for 70-80kr, you control everything in MSI Afterburner as usual, very smooth. Costs a lot, however, you get a lot of product, good guarantees and the box is filled with accessories that do not have to worry about splitters, extenders, etc. if you have a larger chassis, everything is included.

Bought in as ... Aww-what-the-heck-gotta-try-it after the reviews came in. Especially curious about what pressure it manages to push through a tough and thick 120mm radiator, considering building a really tight customloop to the working computer ... Dislike showing loyalty to brands, but seems to have some kind of preference for these rackets. However, they have tested more expensive Vardar, Corsair Maglev, and they do not seem to keep the same quality on quality as this particular company dedicated to fans. That said, this should probably be taken into account in my reviews. + 6 year warranty. Breathe quality straight through. + Low noise all the way to ~ 60% PWM - 1400 RPM. + Very wide PWM range. 0-2000 + RPM. Stays at 0% PWM. + Moves a senseless amount of air even at lower RPM. + Good accessory package, as usual. (ULNA, 30 cm 4-pin extension, Y-splitter, lots of silicone mufflers) - The price is great. Misc: * Taste: Not available in sensible colors yet. * Would have liked to see a 140 or 180 or 200mm variant with corresponding PWM range and performance. % PWM: RPM (rounded) - TOTAL SUBJECTIVE comment;) 100: 2100 - Directly loud for a consumer fan. Good to know you have the RPM range, but would probably not want to drive it at these speeds. 90: 1950 - See above. 80: 1750 - Definitely not quiet, but compared to Corsair fans or Noctua PPC at 2000 RPM clearly less noise. 70: 1550 - "Propeller sound" surprises the engine noise. Audible from> 2 meters. Moves a really high amount of air even through narrower radiators. 60: 1400 - Obvious engine noise. "propeller sound" surprises the noise. Definitely audible from a few meters away. 50: 1200 - Very weak engine noise. Deaf sigh with weak "propeller sound". 40: 950 - Very weak engine noise. Deaf sus audible from ~ 50 cm. 30: 700 - Zero engine noise. Slightly audible ~ 30 cm away. 20: 500 - In principle, quite silent. Zero engine noise. Very weak rush of air moving if I put the ear next to it. 10: 250 - VERY quiet 0: 0 RPM - Stops completely Tested via Corsair Commander Pro on an ASUS Zenith Extreme, Win10x64Ent-17763 As usual; YMMV

The world's best fan. Uses in my Icy Dock MB074SP-1B. Pretty hard-to-use hard drive cage. A little expensive ..
