    Expanding its line-up of premium quality quiet fans, Noctua today introduced its first 140mm model. Following in the footsteps of the successful NF-P12, the new NF-P14 FLX employs a nine blade impeller with Vortex-Control Notches in order to achieve superb quietness and outstanding aerodynamic efficiency. Other features include metal reinforcements for ultimate manufacturing precision as well as Noctua's premium grade SSO-Bearing and SCD2 technology.

    "As more and more cases and coolers support 140mm fans, we've been receiving an increased amount of customer requests for a premium grade quiet fan in this size", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "After more than 18 months of development and optimisation, we're proud to respond to this demand with the new NF-P14 FLX. Supporting both 120mm and 140mm mounting, the NF-P14 FLX will not only satisfy those looking for a reference class 140mm fan but also forms an ideal upgrade for 120mm case and CPU fans."

    Due to its round frame with the same hole-spacing as common 120mm fans and producing more airflow due to its larger diameter, the NF-P14 FLX is ideal for upgrading 120mm CPU or case fans. At the same time, the NF-P14 FLX also fits common 140mm mounting holes using the supplied adaptors.

    Thanks to its psycho-acoustically optimised nine blade impeller with staggered Vortex-Control Notches, the NF-P14 FLX combines superb quietness with exceptional airflow and static pressure. Like the FLX version of the NF-S12B, the NF-P14 FLX includes both a Low-Noise and Ultra-Low-Noise Adapter that provide 1200, 900 and 750rpm speed settings in order to fine tune the fan for superior airflow or maximum quietness.

    In order to guarantee the highest possible degree of manufacturing precision, the NF-P14 employs high precision CNC milled brass parts to reinforce the motor hub as well as a bearing shell made entirely from brass. The latest version of Noctua's advanced SCD drive system ensures superb running smoothness by eliminating torque variations and switching noises. Like all Noctua fans, the NF-P14 comes with Noctua's premium grade SSO-Bearing that has become synonymous with supremely quiet operation and an exceptional long-term stability that's backed up by a 6 years manufacturer's warranty.

    Price and availability
    The NF-P14 FLX will be available in stores by mid-November at a recommended retail price of EUR 21.90 / USD 24.90.

    Yeah black and white or AC and Gelid have awesome colors. Pricey but yet not for what they offer. Id like to know what CFM they have though. I like HIGH CFM with under 45dBa.

    You'll probably end up with a small dust problem with that Dyson fan.

    I don't mind Noctua's colours as mine are inside the case under my desk.

    I'd so use this if the colour scheme was black. Really dislike the colour scheme.

    :(

    Its not that hard to paint the fans. I did and it took me a few minutes a fan.

    they are pricey but you get what you pay for with Noctua- especially if you like silent rigs

    They are approaching the price of 250mm fans though, which is a bit hard to digest.

    @Roph - that was funny and the video was too. Brits need to learn how to say words like in - O - vay-Tiv. anyways, that was a joke. With a dyson computer fan, youd be paying 80 bucks a fan, just for 80-92mm, probably 100 bucks a fan for 120. Ridiculously expensive tech James Dyson has.

    I would LOVE to see this as a fan for computers. Essentially it would be easy to convert but the mounting and positioning would be the hard part.

    yeah its a neat concept... though the engine is large and the benefit is only really reached 1metre back (according to the video explaination) where the air volume is multiplied 15X to what is drawn in.... not sure it'd work in a case becuase of that

    I like their color scheme. They always stand out and you can spot one of their fans in any build.

    True i didnt think of that. Im sure they could figure out some way of making the smaller ones not have such a long use area.

    Awesome fan, but I'm curious what did they design so much during the 18 months?
