Here is some information about Noctua the company taken from their website.
Noctua aims at establishing a new level of quality and performance "Designed in Austria" through paying attention to the users' needs in a market burdened with all kinds of frills and furbelows and providing sound-optimized premium components, which serve their purpose in a smart, precise and reliable manner.
"In a difficult market, technical advantage, thoroughgoing quality and complete customer orientation are in demand. Our long experience in developing, importing and distributing sound-optimized premium components decisively contributes to Noctua's compliance with these requirements." Mag. Roland Mossig, CEO Rascom Computer distribution Ges.m.b.H
Noctua arises from cooperation between the Austrian Rascom Computer distribution Ges.m.b.H and the Taiwanese Kolink International Corporation and entertains a development partnership with the Austrian Institute of Heat Transmission and Fan Technology (Österreichisches Institute for Wärmeübertragung and Ventilatorentechnik, ÖIWV). These connections form the key to the achievement of our goal: The partnership with the ÖIWV permits the application of scientific measurement instrumentation, methods of calculation and simulation technology in the R&D process. Rascom's long, customer-oriented experience in developing and distributing sound-optimized high-end products ensures a clear focus on the users' needs. The use of Kolink's advanced manufacturing technology and ultra-modern production plants allows us to efficiently implement our technical edge and provide solutions of the highest standard in quality and performance.
Today I shall be taking a look at a product from Noctua that promises to be the answer to those seeking that silent dream. The Noctua NF- S12 and the NF – R8. We only got one NF – S12 (120mm) as we know most 120mm fans can be run silently, but on the R8 we decided to get 3 of these in to replace a complete set of fans in one rather loud UV acrylic case. Trust me even with the quiet golf ball fan there is still a slight hum of fan noise, so let us see if the Noctua’s can give me even more piece and quiet shall we.
