Noctua has introduced the NF-P14 FLX, a new round fan that uses a nine blade impeller with so-called Vortex-Control notches in order to achieve superb quietness and outstanding aerodynamic efficiency. The fan features Noctua's SSO-Bearing and SCD2 technology, and has metal reinforcements to avoid unbalance.
The NF-P14 FLX will start shipping by mid-November for $24.90 (21.90EUR). Full specifications can be found at Noctua.
"As more and more cases and coolers support 140mm fans, we've been
receiving an increased amount of customer requests for a premium grade
quiet fan in this size", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "After
more than 18 months of development and optimisation, we're proud to
respond to this demand with the new NF-P14 FLX. Supporting both 120mm
and 140mm mounting, the NF-P14 FLX will not only satisfy those looking
for a reference class 140mm fan but also forms an ideal upgrade for
120mm case and CPU fans."
Due to its round frame with the same hole-spacing as common 120mm fans
and producing more airflow due to its larger diameter, the NF-P14 FLX is
ideal for upgrading 120mm CPU or case fans. At the same time, the NF-P14
FLX also fits common 140mm mounting holes using the supplied adaptors.
Thanks to its psycho-acoustically optimised nine blade impeller with
staggered Vortex-Control Notches, the NF-P14 FLX combines superb
quietness with exceptional airflow and static pressure. Like the FLX
version of the NF-S12B, the NF-P14 FLX includes both a Low-Noise and
Ultra-Low-Noise Adapter that provide 1200, 900 and 750rpm speed settings
in order to fine tune the fan for superior airflow or maximum quietness.
In order to guarantee the highest possible degree of manufacturing
precision, the NF-P14 employs high precision CNC milled brass parts to
reinforce the motor hub as well as a bearing shell made entirely from
brass. The latest version of Noctua's advanced SCD drive system ensures
superb running smoothness by eliminating torque variations and switching
noises. Like all Noctua fans, the NF-P14 comes with Noctua's premium
grade SSO-Bearing that has become synonymous with supremely quiet
operation and an exceptional long-term stability that's backed up by a 6
years manufacturer's warranty.
