It seems to be letting me post, however when I click on the 'post reply' button, it redirects to the sign-in page again before allowing me to type my message. It never used to do that.

Re: New noctua 120mm PWM fan, NF-A12x25 the GT Clone

When buying Noctua fans, is there any difference in noise or airflow between buying a PWM fan and running it at the ULN or FLX rpm settings, and buying the actual ULN or FLX versions?

Re: Ryzen 5 2600 and Ryzen 7 2700

Thanks Ollie. That's sort of what I intuitively suspected. From all the reading I've done, it seems overclocking the 2600 or 2700 draws a lot more power than overclocking the 'X' models. https://www.bit-tech.net/reviews/tech/cpus/amd-ryzen-5-2600-review/6/ And most of the reviewers I've read (kitgur...

What is the average RPM range for CPU cooler fans? Would anyone ever need 2000 RPM? What would be too low even for idle?

Re: New noctua 120mm PWM fan, NF-A12x25 the GT Clone

Is it best to have the cooler fan spin according to the CPU temps?

I like to have PWM for all the case fans, but I've usually just let the CPU fan do its thing.

Re: New noctua 120mm PWM fan, NF-A12x25 the GT Clone

Good points, thanks. I notice the NF-A12x25 is available in ULN, PWM, and FLX like most other Noctua fans. For cooling, are any of these configurations better to have than the other?

Re: What's the difference between these cards?

Anything different about the 'X' model? And why are the two X models wildly different prices?

What is the 'armor' version? Why do some cards only have one fan? Are these any quieter?

Would all of these slightly different versions all have the same cooling and/or quietness characteristics?

Re: New noctua 120mm PWM fan, NF-A12x25 the GT Clone

I agree, I don't particularly like specs either, since they are just numbers on a promo sheet. Though specs do give us something of a starting point. The real evaluation comes with hands on testing. There hasn't been a SPCR fan round up in years, and it doesn't seem likely they'll be another one any...

Re: New noctua 120mm PWM fan, NF-A12x25 the GT Clone

The problem with comparing these fans is that the NF-A12x25 is a 2000 rpm fan, the NF-F12 is1500 rpm, and the NF-S12A is 1200 rpm. According to Noctua's spec sheet: https://noctua.at/en/products/fan The NF-A12x25 (4pin PWM) is 22.6 d/BA @2000 rpm.. with 102.1 air flow and 2.34 static pressure The NF...

Re: New noctua 120mm PWM fan, NF-A12x25 the GT Clone

Not sure if I quite understand the graph.

So, the NF-F12 has a higher static pressure but a lower air flow, whereas the NF-S12A has a lower static pressure but a higher air flow? And the NF-A12x25 is somewhere in between?

Wouldn't the NF-F12 be better for coolers?

Re: Ryzen 5 2600 and Ryzen 7 2700

I had a related question, regarding overclocking. I'm looking at getting a Ryzen 5, either a 2600 or 2600X. The 2600 has a base clock of 3.4GHz boosting to 3.9GHz with a TDP of 65W The 2600X base is 3.6GHz boosting to 4.2GHz with a TDP of 95W According to Bit-tech, the 2600 is very power efficient: ...
