    got a few of them today, quite impressed

    Kraken x52 before 8600k@5.1 1.3v
    2 nzxt aer fans 100% 1500rpm 45c
    2 NF-A12x25 90% 1800 rpm 42c and quieter

    1080ti hybrid cooler
    Nzxt aer fan 1500rpm @100% 56c
    Corsair 120sp fan 1500rpm @100% 54-55c
    NF-A12x25 90% 1800rpm @90% 51-52c and quiet

    At 100% 2000 rpm they aren’t quiet but not terrible either, quieter than the Corsair Pro maglev 2000rpm fans by far

    If you use the gaskets for attaching to a rad, use some needle nose pliers to pull the rubber alignment tips through the hole, much easier to install the gasket

    Hopefully these will be available in 140mm soon.

    They have 120-140 adapters now but fail to see the point really

    Got my answer,

    Noctua_at via YouTube : "The 140mm version is still in the works but won't be ready before next year".
