Hey all,

I was thinking of replacing all the fans on my HAF 932 with Noctua 120 and 140mm fans. My goal is quiet and efficient - I'll be doing a little bit of overclocking. I hate LEDs. How will the Noctua fans hold up? Are there better fans out there in terms of sound/performance?

Thanks!

I got 6 Noctua NF-S12 (1200rpm) in my case (Cooler Master Stacker 832), and the airflow is superb. 81m³/h 17dB(A)
The sound from the fans, is in my opinion a bit loud (I did use the rubber things when I attached them to my case)
When I add the Ultra low noise adaptor (ULNA) they will run at a lower speed, cause less noise and still good airflow.

120mm: NF-S12B ULN
140mm: NF-P14 FLX (use the adaptor and run them at lower speed)

Good fans, but if you want real silent fans, you cant use 1200 rpm
