Noctua today introduced several new additions to its popular A-series of premium quality quiet fans. While the new NF-A9 and NF-A8 models succeed the award-winning NF-B9 and NF-R8, the NF-A4x10 5V is a dedicated 5V version of the renowned NF-A4x10. All models feature Noctua’s proprietary AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) frames as well as sophisticated aerodynamic design measures such as Flow Acceleration Channels and come with full 6 years manufacturers warranty.
Featuring all of Noctua’s latest technologies such as Stepped Inlet Design, Inner Surface Microstructures and Flow Acceleration Channels, the NF-A9 and NF-A8 provide higher static pressure and an even better airflow/noise ratio than their much acclaimed predecessors, which will continue to be available via Noctua’s redux line.
Whereas the NF-A8 will be available in PWM (2200rpm max.), FLX (2000/1650/1200rpm) and ULN (1400/1000rpm) variants, the NF-B9 will be available as PWM (2000rpm max.) and FLX (1600/1250/1050rpm) models.
With its 5V operating voltage, super-quiet 17.9dB(A) noise rating and the included OmniJoinâ„¢ adaptor set that makes it compatible with proprietary fan headers, the NF-A4x10 5V is ideal for replacing noisy or broken 5V 40mm fans.
Like all A-series fans, the new NF-A9, NF-A8 and NF-A4x10 models come with integrated anti-vibration pads and a wide range of accessories such as anti-vibration mounts, extension cables and Low-Noise Adaptors. Their superb running smoothness, reference-class SSO2 bearing and Noctua’s trusted premium quality make them an elite choice for the highest demands.
