Just a couple weeks ago Noctua finally presented its chromax.black line of CPU coolers, which included the NH-D15, NH-U12S, and the NH-L9i. Today, the company is adding five new fans to its chromax.black.swap series fans to complement its 120 and 140 mm models that have already been out for a while longer.
For this batch, Noctua is revealing the NF-A20 PWM, NF-A12x15 PWM, NF-A9 PWM, NF-A9x14 HS-PWM and NF-A8 PWM in chromax.black.swap variants, which come in black with swappable colors for the anti-vibration pads. These include white, red, green, blue, and black pads for the purists. The two slim models of the fans (NF-A12x15 and NF-A9x14) come with eight colored self-adhesive pads instead of the regular anti-vibration pads.
|Size||Max RPM||Max Noise||Price|
|NF-A8 PWM||80 mm x 25 mm||2200 RPM||27.7 dBA||$19.90|
|NF-A9x14||92 mm x 14 mm||2500 RPM||23.6 dBA||$19.90|
|NF-A9 PWM||92 mm x 25 mm||2000 RPM||22.8 dBA||$19.90|
|NF-A12x-15 PWM||120 mm x 15 mm||4850 RPM||23.9 dBA||$24.90|
|NF-A20 PWM||200 mm x 30 mm||800 RPM||18.1 dBA||$34.90|
All of the fans will come with Noctua's 6 year warranty, which it backs because they've managed to achieve an MTBF of 150,000 operational hours thanks to the very-silent SSO2 bearings.
The units should all be hitting shelves soon with the prices listed in the table above.
