Default Noctua NF-R8 and NF-S12 Fans, NC-U6 Chipset Cooler

There are many companies that exist for the sole purpose of helping your PC keep it's cool, but Noctua believes they do that better than anyone. So, we are putting their 80mm fan, 120mm fan and chipset cooler to the test, to see if they live up to the hype.

For those of you who like silence, SPCR was also pleased with the Noctua 120mm fan. SPCR also did a second 120mm fan comparison here. Here's a link to SPCR's recommended fans - Noctua is currently at the top.

For those on a budget though, I'm not aware of any better deal than the Yate Loon 120mm fans.

I love Noctua cooling products. It's all I use inside my PC and it is as close to silent as possible.
