Noctua 120x120x25mm Premium PWM Fan NF-P12 PWM
Specifically conceived for pressure demanding applications such as CPU cooling, the classic NF-P12 120mm fan helped to found Noctuas reputation as a top-tier manufacturer of premium quality quiet cooling components and still impresses users with its exquisite quietness and superb performance. The new PWM version features Noctuas novel, custom designed PWM IC for fully automatic control and ultra-low power consumption. Equipped with Noctuas signature SSO bearing and topped off with a 6 years manufacturers warranty, the NF-P12 PWM is a proven premium choice for the highest demands
Proven NF-P12 Design
Tens of thousands of quiet cooling enthusiasts swear by Noctuas classic NF-P12. Its impressive quietness, excellent performance and impeccable, time-tested quality made the P12 a default choice for 120mm quiet cooling.
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 PWM provides outstanding pressure and airflow performance.
Noctuas signature Vortex-Control Notches split up trailing edge vortices and thus spread the fans noise emission over a wider range of frequencies. This measure makes the NF-P12 PWM sound more pleasant to the human ear.
Custom designed PWM IC with SCD
Supporting fully automatic PWM speed control, the NF-P12 PWM uses Noctuas novel, custom designed NE-FD1 PWM IC that integrates Smooth Commutation Drive (SCD) technology. By providing smoother torque impulses, SCD suppresses PWM switching noises and thus makes the fan quieter at lower speeds.
Ultra-Low Power Consumption
The NF-P12 PWM draws only 0.6W, which is more than 50% less than many other PWM fans. This doesnt only make it eco-friendly but also cuts down the electricity bill: Compared to a typical 2W fan, this allows you to save about half the price of the NF-P12 after 5 years of continuous use.
The NF-P12 PWM is supplied with a Low-Noise Adaptor (L.N.A.) that reduces the maximum fan speed from 1300 to 900rpm. The L.N.A can be used either to run the fan at a fixed speed of 900rpm or to cap the maximum speed when using automatic PWM control.
Extensive Cabling Options
The fans short 20cm primary cable minimises cable clutter in typical applications while the supplied 30cm extension provides extended reach when necessary. Both cables are fully sleeved and a 4-pin y-cable allows to connect a second NF-P12 fan to the same PWM fan header for automatic control.
Combining the proven concept of hydrodynamic bearing with an additional magnet that supports the self-stabilisation of the rotor axis, Noctuas time-tested SSO-Bearing technology has become synonymous with supremely quiet operation and exceptional long-term stability.
6 years manufacturers warranty
Noctua fans are renowned for their impeccable quality and outstanding longevity. Like all Noctua fans, the NF-P12 PWM features an MTBF rating of more than 150.000 hours and comes with a full 6 years manufacturers warranty.

NOTE: PWM Fans are not variable speed control fans on their own. An integrated circuit varies the speed and airflow of a fan using a pulse-width-modulated (PWM) voltage in response to temperature or system commands send typically by a computer motherboard. You can use them to run at full speed from an external supply if you adapt the plug. (PWM Adapter Cables)
