Vienna, April 21st 2009 - Noctua today introduced the new NF-S12B 120mm
premium fan. Succeeding the vastly successful NF-S12, the NF-S12B is a
next generation quiet fan featuring Noctua's advanced SCD2 technology as
well as a highly optimised blade geometry with Bevelled Blade Tips that
improves its award-winning predecessor's airflow efficiency by up to 10%.




"Our popular NF-S12 series is renowned for its excellent airflow/noise
ratio, so further improving it was by no means an easy feat", explains
Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "It took us quite a lot of time and
effort, but we couldn't be happier with the result. The new NF-S12B
doesn't only provide more airflow at the same noise level than the
original NF-S12, it also produces higher static pressure."

Building on the proven basis of the original NF-S12 impeller, the design
goal for the NF-S12B was to further improve its predecessor's much
acclaimed airflow/noise ratio and to increase static pressure in order
to allow for a broader range of applications. These goals have been
achieved by reducing the tip clearance at the leading edge and adding
Bevelled Blade-Tips, a feature first introduced with the NF-B9 92mm fan.



In addition to its highly optimised impeller design, the NF-S12B
features Noctua's time-tested premium quality SSO-Bearing as well as
Smooth Commutation Drive 2, the latest version of Noctua's advanced
drive system that ensures superb running smoothness by eliminating
torque variations and switching noises.

The NF-S12B is available in two versions: Whereas the FLX (Flexibility)
version provides 1200, 900 and 600 rpm speed settings via the supplied
Low-Noise and Ultra-Low-Noise Adapters in order to fine-tune it for
superior airflow or maximum quietness, the ULN (Ultra-Low-Noise) version
with 700/500rpm speed settings is tailor made for silent enthusiasts who
demand super-slow running speeds and utmost quietness of operation.



Pricing and Availability:
The NF-S12B FLX and NF-S12B ULN are available immediately at a suggested
retail price of EUR 19.90 / USD 24.90.
