They combine excellent workmanship with high cooling performance and minimal noise. The self-developed Noctua fans, which are also available separately to serve as a chassis or CPU fan, are the key drivers.
The NF-A15 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 advanced aerodynamic design measures such as Flow Acceleration Channels, the NF-A15 compared to the award-winning NF-P14 achieved a further improved silent performance.
Noctua's specially designed PWM IC for fully automatic speed control as well as the SSO2 reference class bearing guarantee superb smoothness and outstanding long-term stability. The modular cabling, low-noise adapter and 6-year manufacturer's warranty make the NF-A15 a top solution for the highest demands.
Noctua's NF-P14 has become a standard solution for PC enthusiasts who need premium quality 140mm fans. Through far-reaching aerodynamic optimizations, the NF-A14 achieves even higher static pressure and a further improved ratio of conveying performance and noise development compared to its renowned predecessor.
The NF-A15 is specifically designed for use on current high-end CPU coolers: the 150mm width is the same as most current heatsinks, and the 140mm height does not allow the fan to project up, ensuring best package compatibility , The 120 mm mounting holes (105 mm hole spacing) make the NF-A15 an ideal upgrade for housing or CPU fans in 120 mm format.
The impeller of the NF-A15 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.
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.
The NF-A15 PWM supports fully automatic speed control via PWM and uses Noctua's new, specially designed NE-FD1 chip. This new PWM IC incorporates Noctua's Smooth Commutation Drive (SCD) technology that minimizes PWM switching noise, making the fan quieter at low speeds.
The NF-A15 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.
Despite its further improved performance, the power consumption of the NF-A15 is only 0.96W, which corresponds to a reduction of about 20% compared to its predecessor. So the NF-A15 is not only environmentally friendly, but also helps you to lower the electricity bill!
Noctua's fans are known for their impeccable quality and outstanding longevity. Like all Noctua fans, the NF-A15 has an MTBF specification of over 150,000 hours and comes with a full 6-year manufacturer's warranty.
