The NF-P12 has been specifically developed for applications such as CPU coolers that demand superior pressure and airflow performance. Thanks to psychoacoustic optimizations like the Vortex-Control Notches, the new SCD drive system and Noctua's premium-grade SSO-Bearing, the NF-P12 achieves exceptional quietness and long-term stability.
We principally recommend the NF-P12 for the following applications:
CPU coolers with tight fin-spacing
Water-cooling radiators with tight fin-spacing
Cases with very restrictive fan grills and filters
All applications with significant obstruction to airflow
Pressure-optimized Nine-Blade Design Specifically developed for high-impedance applications such as CPU coolers, water-cooling radiators or cases with tight fan grills, the NF-P12 provides superior pressure and airflow performance.
Vortex-Control Notches Psychoacoustic optimizations like the staggered Vortex-Control Notches make the NF-P12 surprisingly quiet.
Smooth Commutation Drive The NF-P12's new drive system reduces torque variations and thereby ensures improved running smoothness.
Self-stabilizing oil-pressure bearing Noctua's well proven SSO-Bearing technology guarantees supremely quiet operation and exceptional long-term stability.?/

"Utilising both the NF-S12 and NF-P12 120mm fans on the radiator for our cooling tests yielded some interesting results. I have included some Scythe S-FLEX results in the chart to help make a comparison. The NF-S12 800 gets left behind at 7v, but the NF-P12 performs better than the Scythe S-FLEX's t
It’s incredible the volume that this fan produces and equally incredible when you see not only the airflow figures but the static pressures. It obvious that this fan has been designed for watercooling setups where static pressure plays a large role.

This is not made to be a case fan. It's meant to cool precise areas like a CPU radiator. Not meant to be in a push/pull config. Push/Pull will cause whistling and no gains. You do not need push/ pull with this fan.
Great fan. I couldn't stand stock 70mm fans in my Xbox 360 console. The noise was unnecessary and when they wind up to maximum rpm when the Xbox was hot, the sound drowned out the game and was unbearable. It was akin to a F-4 Jet takeoff mixed with a leaf-blower. After ploughing through hours of online forums, useless meandering, a limited selection of products claiming reduced overall noise (while brandishing pretty LEDs and other useless paraphernalia) in what proved to be a dead end task, I knew what I had to do. Several years ago this console went back to the manufacturer for repairs, and came back with the same heatsink and fan combo. My old PC which is about 14 years of age has the exact same heatsink, and that heatsink is aluminum and only rated for 50W dissipation with convection assistance. If there was a copper one to fit, I'd buy it. Clearly, the "maximum savings!" sirens and strobe lights went off inside the XBox marketing department and someone decided to use a 50W rated heatsink on a CPU that dissipates 100W. No more reeling around the fountain, indeed...
The noctua NF-P12 is very quiet even without adapters with an improved static pressure. Very good build quality of the fan and cabling. Long lasting, self stabilizing bearing. Nicely packaged with good 6 Year Warranty.
I just got these fans, 5 of them and they are amazing. Can't hear a thing and I have them controlled by NZXT Mesh. Moves a lot of air. Huge difference between these (4 in use) compared to the 200mm that came with my HAF XM.
The other reviews have said it all. These fans have amazing cooling. I have used them in a few high end client builds. They are very quiet, and offer awesome cooling performance. They are not the cheapest out there, but as with anything, you get what you pay for. I highly recommend these for a high end to top tier system.
