Noctua NF-F12





The Noctua NF-F12 120mm PWM fan is Noctua’s latest PWM fan. The main things we look for in a fan are performance and aesthetics. Noctua is known for extremely high quality products and aesthetics that not everyone agrees about. Today we’re going to see whether Noctua can maintain their claimed quality by looking at the NF-F12!

The front of the box is pretty normal for a Noctua product, very clean with a window into the product.

For a fan, this is the largest bundle I have ever seen.  Thing’s like the y-cable aren’t even required, they’re just very handy to have.
