Noctua have been a force to be reckoned with for a good few years now. Founded in 2005 they are well known for their fans and CPU Coolers. Up until recently their choice of colour scheme for fans was a two-tone brownish colour; needless to say this never really went over well with enthusiasts. One thing was always clear though, they offered some of the best performing fans and CPU coolers around and that is something no one can deny them. The NH-D14 had sat atop the best in air cooling charts for some time, and was only recently knocked off by their own NH-D15, currently only bested by the likes of AIO or Water Cooling.
Today we will be taking a look at one of their two newest ranges of fans; the industrialPPC line-up. The insudtrialPPC fans come in two different sizes, 120/140mm, with a couple of different skus for each size. While these fans are designed for higher end industrial equipment as the name suggests, there is no denying this is something all enthusiasts have been waiting for, a black Noctua fan!
Before we take a closer look at the specifications and packaging; let’s see what Noctua has to say about their industrialPPC fans.
“Conceived for industrial heavy duty applications that require enhanced cooling performance and advanced ingress protection, Noctua’sindustrialPPC (Protected Performance Cooling) line comprises ruggedised 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, theindustrialPPC versions provide superior airflow and pressure capacity while keeping noise levels and power consumption moderate as against comparable high-speed fans. While their fibre-glass 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 years manufacturer’s warranty, theindustrialPPC series are an ideal choice for highly demanding applications that require superior flow rates and ultimate dependability. “
