Today I will be reviewing Noctua’s “industrialPPC 24V” line of fans. To some enthusiasts, color is a deciding factor when choosing a fan because many cases have a side window to show-off the beautiful hardware. Noctua fans are widely known for their durability and performance and not so much their aesthetics. Now with the new color options to choose from, Noctua has appealed to many of us builders out there that may have sacrificed performance for style. These fans offer the superb performance expected from Noctua and now some style points to boot. The new colors look sharp and even though they are not your coffee and cream color, Noctua has still built a highly distinguished set of fans. The build quality is noticeable from a distance and I am sure that these fans will hold true to Noctua’s standard of high quality performance.
Now with the new color options for the rubber bumpers we have a lot to chose from to match your hardware scheme. The 24V fans are intended to be used with a power supply capable of delivering the necessary volts to allow the fans to spin at full speed. They will work with a 12V but will spin noticeably slower. I had no way to test these fans at 24V. So we can assume Noctuas specs are right on target. One thing I have noticed with all the Noctua products I have reviewed all of the products have exceeded specs. I would not hesitate in guarantying this would be a similar case.
The industrialPPC model is black on black with Noctua’s signature brown anti-vibration pads. Noctua’s industrialPPC (Protected Performance Cooling) line comprises of rugged high-speed versions of the company’s award-winning retail models. Thanks to the outstanding aerodynamic efficiency of Noctua’s designs and the use of a novel three-phase motor, the industrialPPC versions provide superior airflow and pressure capacity while keeping noise levels and power consumption moderate as comparable high-speed fans. While their fiberglass reinforced polyamide construction and certified water and dust protection make the industrialPPC fans suitable for operation in challenging environments, the renowned SSO2 bearing technology guarantees an MTBF of over 150.000hrs. Topped off with Noctua’s trusted reliability and 6-year manufacturer’s warranty, the industrialPPC series are an ideal choice for highly demanding applications that require superior flow rates and ultimate dependability.
