Noctua to use Active Noise Cancellation in new Fan

Noctua, noted Austrian heatsink & fan company, just announced a partnership with a noise reduction specialist called RotoSub to develop PC fans with integrated Active Noise Cancellation. This is not the first time that ANC technology is being used to combat computer noise, but as yet, no ANC products for computers that you can buy have materialized. This project seems more concrete; a specific goal is to improve Noctua’s NF-F12 FocusedFlow fan: "Our performance target is to achieve about 80% more airflow and 120% higher static pressure at the same noise level as the original NF-F12… within the next 12 to 18 months." Noctua says a prototype ANC NF-F12 fan will be publicy demonstrated at Computex in Taipei. Look for my report next week. * Discuss this news *
