Quoted from Noctua NF-P12 Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Noctua NF-P12 reviews & previews
"The Noctua NF-P12 is a well thought product -- with its application taken into account, Noctua has approached the design of such a simple product in appearance very seriously. The abundance of included voltage resistors are there for the user to cap maximum fan speed to their preference, and with the usual Noctua implementations such as native 3-pin connector with sleeved cable as well as a 4-pin Molex adapter makes this a flawless design. The only thing I could possibly complain about is that the Noctua NF-P12's color scheme may not appeal everyone. And maybe if it moved more air... but then, you can always say that for any fan because it could never be enough. After all, it's a quiet fan, and Noctua's done pretty darn well at making it a reality. You got a heatsink that uses a 120mm fan? The Noctua NF-P12 is something that you don't want to miss out on."
"Once again Noctua doesn't disappoint. The NF-P12 produces a decent airflow, a high static pressure and is extremely quiet. This fan is perfect for low-noise CPU, radiator, PSU or case cooling."
"Noctua NF-P12 is a fan which is suitable for tight fin spacing cooler like CPU cooler with it high static pressure which is generated by nine blade design and vortex control notches are able to keep the noise low. If you are seeking for good performance with silent operation, no doubt Noctua NF-P12 is really one of your good choices. However if you don't care about the noise and just want to keep your system as cool as possible then Noctua NF-P12 isn't a good choice. We hope Noctua will produce another version of Noctua NF-P12 with much more powerful RPM to conquer the high performance market as well."
"With Noctua, your not only getting a high quality fan that offers excellent cooling at a decreased noise level, you also get a 6 year warranty. Yes thats correct, I said 6 years. The NF-P12 fans go for around $20 US and are a little steeper than some fans. Those of us that know just how important cooling is, will have no problem spending a few extra bucks for a fan that is going to produce lower noise levels, offer adequate cooling, and have a 6 year warranty. The Noctua NF-P12 fans talk pretty much for themselves."
"...I am finding it difficult to fault this products performance. It really does tick all the boxes, by providing the airflow of a high-performance fan while producing the same noise as fans that have needed to compromise airflow to obtain their low decibel output. The previous Noctua case fans that Overclock3D reviewed came with a slightly hefty price tag of around £15 (now around £13.50). The NF-P12 however has hit the market at an rrp of £13.85 (EUR 19.90). This will definitely seem a little expensive to some prospective purchasers, but in my opinion is well worth it if silence is your biggest priority. Should it hit the shelves in the UK at this price, Noctua are certainly onto a winner and this fan would certainly by my first choice were I to build a HTPC or silence orientated PC."
