Dino PC Team Verdict
There’s a reason that my PC has a black and brown aesthetic rather than simply all black, it’s because when I look across at my build and see Noctua’s iconic fans it makes me happy. Yes, I know that a fan is a weird thing to get excited about but Noctua fans are something else. The Austrian company is renowned for their no-nonsense scientific approach to premium case fans, putting performance over aesthetic, and the NF-F12 PWM is no exception.
The NF-F12 PWM is a premium case fan that I am extremely satisfied with. Every aspect of the fan has been engineered to increase airflow and pressure whilst reducing noise. Combine this with the included cable kit, low noise adapter, and anti-vibration mounting system and the result is a high-quality product that makes a great case, CPU cooler, or radiator fan that’s suitable for the most silent of builds.
Is it pretty? No. Would I sacrifice the overall visual appeal of my PC for it? Yes, and I would again.
