Award-winning NF-A12x25 impeller

Noctua’s NF-A12x25 has captured the hearts of quiet cooling enthusiasts around the world and reshaped the common perception of what 120mm fans can do. With more than 100 awards and recommendations from the international press, it is widely considered to be the best 120mm fan on the market. The NF-A12x25r combines the same impeller with a round frame.

Round frame design

The NF-A12x25r is identical to the NF-A12x25 except for the round frame that allows it to be used in applications where a square-frame 120mm fan would not fit. For example, the NF-A12x25r is ideal for being sunk in between the dual towers of the low-height NH-D12L cooler without causing compatibility problems with tall motherboard heatsinks or shrouds.

Highly optimized P/Q curve for all applications

The NF-A12x25’s sophisticated aerodynamic design allows for a pressure to airflow (P/Q) curve that is extremely strong in the critical mid-section. This means that the NF-A12x25 is a true jack-of-all-trades with excellent performance in both static pressure demanding and airflow demanding applications.

Excellent on-application acoustics

While many fans produce unpleasant, high-pitched noises when installed in typical applications such as on heatsinks or radiators, the NF-A12x25 has been carefully fine-tuned for optimal on-application acoustics. It produces a smooth, pleasant frequency profile and surprisingly low sound pressure levels (SPL) when working against backpressure.

Flow Acceleration Channels

The NF-A12x25 impeller features suction side Flow Acceleration Channels. By speeding up the airflow at the crucial outer blade regions, this measure reduces suction side flow separation and thus leads to better efficiency and lower vortex noise.

Inner Surface Microstructures

With the tips of the fan blades plowing through the boundary layer created by the Inner Surface Microstructures, flow separation from the suction side of the blades is significantly suppressed, which results in reduced blade passing noise and improved airflow and pressure efficiency.

Low-Noise Adaptor

The NF-A12x25 PWM is supplied with a Low-Noise Adaptor (L.N.A.) that reduces the maximum fan speed from 2000 to 1700rpm. The L.N.A. can be used either to run the fan at a fixed speed of 1700rpm or to cap the maximum speed when using automatic PWM control.

Extensive cabling options

The fan's short 20cm primary cable minimises cable clutter in typical applications while the supplied 30cm extension provides extended reach when necessary. Both cables are fully sleeved and a 4-pin y-cable allows the connection of a second fan to the same PWM fan header for automatic control.

AAO frame

Noctua's AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) frames feature integrated anti-vibration pads as well as Noctua's proprietary Stepped Inlet Design and Inner Surface Microstructures, both of which further refine the fan's performance/noise efficiency.
