Succeeding the vastly successful NF-S12, the NF-S12B is a next generation quiet fan featuring Noctua's advanced SCD2 technology as well as a highly optimised blade geometry with Bevelled Blade Tips that improves its award-winning predecessor's airflow efficiency by up to 10%. Topped off with Noctua's time-tested SSO-Bearing, 6 years warranty and versatile 1200/900/600 rpm speed settings, the NF-S12B FLX is a premium quality fan that offers full flexibility in quiet to ultra-quiet case cooling.
Compared with the NF-P12 fans, Noctua state that the NF-S12Bís offer more airflow while at the same time being quieter.

This may make you ask why Noctua still sells the NF-P12ís but the secret is static pressure, the NF-S12Bís are only meant to be used as case fans and flowing freely, as opposed to the very restrictive airflow paths that would be present using the fan on a CPU cooler etc. Used on a heatsink the NF-P12 would still outperform the S12Bís.
