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-optimised premium components, which serve their purpose in a smart, precise and reliable manner.
What does Noctua mean?
The little owl, Athene noctua, is the symbol of the Greek goddess Athene, who represents wisdom, science and strategy. She has a marked preference for the most clever among the Greek heroes, like Odysseus, who endure their adventures by the use of savvy consideration instead of mere force. Until today, the owl symbolises intelligence and prudence, its manlike face emblematises attentiveness and communication. We from Noctua follow the suit of its calm and accurate observation in the dark, its soundless flight as well as the effective, economical use of its powers and precise attack.
Noctua have a justified reputation of silent, yet powerful cooling. I fell in love with their NF-P12 fans and was wowed by their NH-U12P cooler. Today we are looking at a new fan from Noctua the NF-S12B (specifically the FLX 1200/900/600RPM version).
The NF-S12B is an update on their popular NF-S12 case fan, with the design tweaks Noctua are claiming up to 10% improvement in airflow efficiency.
