At Computex, Noctua introduced Project Chromax, which are basically color variants of its anti-vibration pads and mounts for its series of fans. Six months later, the company is ready to release the colored pads on the market.
There are six colors available -- blue, red, yellow, green, white and black -- and Noctua saw fit to provide a mount and pad variant for each color. The mounts, which are collectively called the NA-SAV2 series, will work with any Noctua fan, including the company’s Redux models. The pads (NA-SAVP1), however, will only work with the NF-F12, NF-S12A and NF-A14 fans. They also work with the popular black industrial PPC fans.
Each box of the NA-SAV2 series comes with 20 mounts for five fans, whereas the NA-SAVP1 package includes 16 pads for two fans. Noctua said that the suggested retail price is $6.90 each, with both products currently shipping to stores, and availability coming shortly thereafter.
