Noctua industrialPPC 24V Fans and Chromax Accessories Review

Introduction Typically, nobody is supposed to run a piece of hardware outside of the way that it was intended to run. Of course, we make exceptions because we love to overclock things and see how much extra performance there is to be gained. So it may seem a bit strange to review something and only give it half of what it’s capable of. When you consider that the goal is silence in cooling, then it begins to make sense. NOCTUA just released a new series of industrialPPC fans that rate at 24V. While this can be useful for high end server environments that don’t care about noise as much, the benefit for everyday consumers is at 12V, the fans will run more silently while hopefully giving decent air flow. We’ll find out how well they do, but there’s one more huge thing that consumers have been waiting eons for. COLORS!!! That’s right. NOCTUA is finally giving consumers a broad range of colors to customize their fans beyond brown or beige (I suppose there were those grey colors too). Personally, all it took for me to fall in love with a NOCTUA fan was to see how it performed in person, but I totally understand people who don’t go in on one of them because of the color scheme. Now there are Chromax accessories that allow the user to customize each fan to have a splash of color that matches a build better, while still having the professional look that comes from having a NOCTUA fan over a flashy LED fan. We’ll see how those look in a b...
