Noctua Ultra Silent 140mm NF-P14 FLX Fan Review

Noctua, a corporate collaboration with nearly ten years of experience, has become the very definition of high performance, silent cooling hardware. With innovative features that many cooling manufacturers have yet to even consider, such as notched blades to reduce turbulence, self-stabilizing oil-pressure bearings, and their torque-pulse reducing SCD, Noctua is a true force to be reckoned with. Recently, however, Noctua has developed a new, previously unthinkable product - that of the NF-P14 FLX. If you can increasing the diameter of the propeller, while simultaneously reducing RPM, you should be able to produce a similar amount of air flow, while keeping the fan nearly silent. Noctua took that idea and ran; the NF-P14 FLX is one of the only fully contained fan units that allows you to effectively install a 140mm fan into a 120mm mount. Let's see if the tech is worth the 'Noctua tax'.
