In addition to Noctua's standard range of quiet premium fans, featuring all the latest Noctua technologies, delivered with a wide range of accessories and recognizable by the familiar beige color scheme, the manufacturer now also offers an additional product line: Chromax. The special thing about the fans is not least the exclusively black color that Noctua has implemented on customer request.
Optimal flow rate of the NF-A15 Chromax.Black.Swap
The NF-A15 Chromax.Black.Swap is a quiet 140 mm premium fan with round AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimization) frame and 120 mm mounting holes (105 mm hole spacing). For even greater cooling performance on current high-end CPU coolers, the width has been extended to 150 mm and complemented by advanced aerodynamic design measures such as Flow Acceleration Channels, which again improve the silent performance. With far-reaching aerodynamic optimizations, the NF-A15 Chromax.Black.Swap achieves a high static pressure as well as an optimal ratio of flow rate and noise.
The NF-A15 Chromax.Black.Swap was also developed for use on current high-end CPU coolers: The width of 150 mm corresponds to that of most current heat sinks and the height of 140 mm, the fan does not protrude upwards, which guarantees the best housing compatibility. The 120 mm mounting holes (105 mm hole spacing) make the NF-A15 Chromax.Black.Swap an ideal upgrade for case or CPU fans in 120 mm format.
The impeller of the NF-A15 Chromax.Black.Swap is equipped on the suction side with so-called flow acceleration channels. Acceleration of the airflow in the critical outer regions of the fan blades reduces suction vortex shedding, resulting in higher efficiency and lower turbulence-induced noise emissions.
Noctua's Advance Acoustic Optimization (AAO) frames feature built-in vibration bumpers, as well as a stepped inlet area (Stepped Inlet Design) and an interior microstructure (Inner Surface Microstructures) for even better performance / noise efficiency.
Extended color selection
Made of extra-soft silicone anti-vibration pads reduce the transmission of minimal vibration and are at the same time compatible with all standard screws and commercially available mounting systems or fan brackets used in CPU coolers. With the NF-A15 Chromax.Black.Swap the decoupler corners can be used in several colors. The fan comes in the colors black, white, yellow, green, red and blue.
In addition, the NF-A15 Chromax.Black.Swap is equipped with the further optimized second generation of Noctua's proven SSO storage system. With SSO2, the back magnet sits closer to the fan axis for even better stabilization, resulting in further improved precision and durability.
Noctua's fans are known for their flawless quality and outstanding longevity. Like all Noctua fans, the NF-A15 Chromax.Black.Swap has an MTBF specification of over 150,000 hours and comes with a full 6-year manufacturer's warranty.
