These are great fans: quiet, good looking, and capable of moving air.

Beautifully crafted fans, loud at full speed but very nice once under 1300 rpm. Can go into super low rpm modes like 200 rpm no problem

best fans in the world, i loved Noctua but hated the look, then when i found out they had black ones i bought them straight away... Then i found they had different coloured corners... I was so happy, i dont even care about the more premium price.

Push great amounts of air but are noisy. For performance and noise might as well step up and get the 3000rpm.

I love Noctua fans. It's difficult to objectively compare fans, but once you have them installed and running in your own rig, it becomes pretty easy to spot a quality part from a budget one. I used these to replace the NZXT fans that came on my X61 AIO cooler because the NZXT fans had a pretty good hum and even a bit of a rattle above 80% speed. I'm glad Noctua offered these industrial fans in black, and the optional white corner bumpers make them blend perfectly with my white and black build!
At full tilt, these fans easily move some air through the radiator, and the only audible sound is the white noise of air rushing out of the case. This is one of the few PC components where you can be sure you're getting a premium product for the price you pay.

These fans are great. Fantastic airflow and static pressure even at low speeds, and when you turn them up to even 65% they just put a blizzard through the radiator. The CPU is so frosty I could put it in a drink and call it an ice cube. Of course, they do get audible above 50%, but I don't even care. I lived with a laptop cooled with mini jet turbines inside it for years, and this is nowhere near those levels. These fans are on the expensive side, sure, but I think it's worth it for this kind of performance. Highly recommended.

I'm really happy with the Noctua industrial line. They're virtually silent at lower rpm, and the move massive amounts of air when needed (with some audible airflow, of course).

Expensive and loud (i have lowered the speed a lot) but worth it, i also bought the chromax green corners to match my build
