    Noctua violates PWM Spec, Causes Problems in Multi-Fan Configs

    EDIT: I wanted to make it excruciatingly clear that Noctua fixed my issue. They explained the problem, and offered to swap out all 18 of my fans. See more details here. Good job Noctua in addressing the issue head on, solving it, and winning a customer for life. Original Post: Bear with...

    Areca replacing fan: what to do with thermal grease?

    I own a couple of 1882 Areca cards. Most of them are working fine. I would like to replace the fans of all of them, starting with a 1882-8i. I have removed the fan and the squared metal. I have bought a Noctua 40mm (10mm height). This one doesn't really fit on to the squared metal, but okee i...

    Noctua NH-L9a 2 fans?

    I'm about to finish my Node 202 build and I was contemplating attempting something, but I wanted to know if this would cause issues with the fans "fighting" each other...I'm not sure how else to word that. The L9a uses a 92mm fan that is 15mm thick. I will be trying to overclock my 1700x as...

    What kind of temps are you guys seeing with Ryzen in ITX builds?

    R7-1700X here, no overclock (just bog standard out of the box) utilizing a Silverstone NT06-Pro + Noctua A12x15 PWM in a 'push' configuration, all housed inside a Raven RVZ-01B case. I put it under a bit of a 'torture' (in quotes due to not having full CPU utilization) by closing it in the...

    Noctua NH-U14S good enough for OC'd 8700k?

    I can find a lot info about the Noctua NH-D15(S) in combination with the 8700k, but none with the Noctua NH-U14S. Do you guys think that my Noctua NH-U14S will be sufficiënt if I want to overclock the 8700k say to a modest 4.8ghz? Is the Noctua NH-U14S compatible with socket 1151?

    High Performance to Noise Ratio in Noctua's Next Generation A-Series Fans

    Noctua's next generation A-series fan due out this fall has, according to PC gamer, had a whole lot of engineering work go into it. We're talking 200+ prototypes, and four and a half years of development to come up with a fan that produces low noise, but also moves a lot of air, even when up...

    NH-U9DO A3 for 140W opteron & OC.

    I cant buy any coolers for G34 opterons besides nh-u9do a3 in my country, and shipping is not an option since it costs more then the coolers themselfes (modding coolers and water cooling is also not an option). I will be upgrading later to 140W opteron 6300 series and on noctua website it says...
