Noctua today released a higher speed PWM version of its award-winning NF-A14 140 mm fan. Its performance-oriented 1500 rpm top speed and comprehensive speed control options make the NF-A14 PWM an elite choice for users who strive to strike a perfect balance between excellent cooling capacity and superb quietness of operation, be it on watercooling radiators, on heatsinks or in case ventilation.

"Our NF-A15 and NF-A14 fans have been very well received by customers and hardware journalists alike", says Mag. Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO), "but we got many requests for a square frame PWM version for use as a case fan and on watercooling radiators. We can now meet this demand with the new NF-A14 PWM."

These fans are beast.

I usually buy from Noctua direct, it depends on where you are located tho.

Pretty easy for me since I'm very close to them.

I did not know that lol

I thought 100.6 CFM was good? :confused:
Noctua fans have never been rated in CFM, always cubic meters of air flow (likely a site typo). Doing the conversion to CFM is just slightly over half of the cubic meter measurement and your fans will deliver more in the range of 55 to 60 CFM.

100+ CFM is great, but your fans aren't pushing 100 CFM;)

Can you recommend any that do push in the area of 100CFM?

not anything that is going to be that silent. Honestly if you are happy with them, as you seemed to be before I opened my mouth, don't worry about the e-peen ratings, just be happy with what you have;) I was just stopping in to correct you as I looked at that post for a day and thought to myself I never knew of a 100CFM fan from Noctua.
