Noctua NF-P12

Installation

Fan installation is either very easy, or hard work. Most fans don’t have the mounting holes tapped with a screw thread which means that you’ll have to put in some wrist work when you first come to use the fan. Unfortunately, the NF-P12 is no different, and if you decide to use the normal mounting screws you’ll first have to fish for your Phillips screw driver. But Noctua also give you some rubber mounting pegs which slot through your case and then through the fan casing which negates the need for a screw driver but also reduces any fan vibration being passed and amplified by your case.

Once you’ve got your fan in place, it’s a simple case of popping the trailing fan wire into a spare motherboard header and you are all set. If you want to use one of the adaptors, then this is the time to add it into the loop.
