The NF-A8 is a highly optimised, premium quality quiet 80mm fan. Featuring Noctua’s AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) frame as well as sophisticated aerodynamic design measures such as Flow Acceleration Channels, the NF-A8 further improves the renowned quiet cooling performance of the award-winning NF-R8. The PWM version sports Noctua’s custom designed NE-FD1 IC for fully automatic speed control via 4-pin fan headers and comes with a Low-Noise-Adaptor to reduce the maximum speed during PWM control from 2200 to 1750rpm. Its superb running smoothness, reference-class SSO2 bearing and Noctua’s trusted premium quality make it an elite choice for the highest demands. 

Main Features

  • Succeeding the award-winning NF-R8 - Noctua's NF-R8 fan has become a default-choice among PC enthusiasts looking for a premium quality quiet 80mm fan. Thanks to its thoroughgoing aerodynamic optimisations, the NF-A8 provides higher static pressure and an even better airflow/noise ratio than its much acclaimed predecessor.
  • Flow Acceleration Channels - The NF-A8 impeller features suction side Flow Acceleration Channels. By speeding up the airflow at the crucial outer blade regions, this measure reduces suction side flow separation and thus leads to better efficiency and lower vortex noise.
  • AAO frame - Noctua's AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) frames feature integrated anti-vibration pads as well as Noctua's proprietary Stepped Inlet Design and Inner Surface Microstructures, both of which further refine the fan's performance/noise efficiency.
  • Stepped Inlet Design - Noctua's Stepped Inlet Design adds turbulence to the influx in order to facilitate the transition from laminar flow to turbulent flow, which reduces tonal intake noise, improves flow attachment and increases suction capacity, especially in space-restricted environments.
  • Inner Surface Microstructures - With the tips of the fan blades ploughing through the boundary layer created by the Inner Surface Microstructures, flow separation from the suction side of the blades is significantly suppressed, which results in reduced blade passing noise and improved airflow and pressure efficiency.
  • Integrated anti-vibration pads - Integrated anti-vibration pads made from extra-soft silicone minimise the transmission of minute vibrations while maintaining full compatibility with all standard screws and other mounting systems.
  • SSO2 Bearing - The NF-A8 features the further optimised second generation of Noctua's renowned, time-tested SSO bearing. With SSO2, the rear magnet is placed closer to the axis to provide even better stabilisation, precision and durability.
  • Custom-designed PWM IC with SCD - Supporting fully automatic PWM speed control, the NF-A8 PWM uses Noctua's novel, custom-designed NE-FD1 PWM IC that integrates Smooth Commutation Drive (SCD) technology. By providing smoother torque impulses, SCD suppresses PWM switching noises and thus makes the fan quieter at low speeds.
  • Stops at 0% PWM - When the fan is set to 0% PWM duty cycle by the motherboard or PWM fan controller, it will stop. This makes it ideal for creating setups with semi-passive cooling that automatically turn the fans off and thus run completely silent at idle if thermals allow.
  • Low-Noise Adaptor - The NF-A8 PWM is supplied with a (L.N.A.) that reduces the maximum fan speed from 2200 to 1750rpm. The L.N.A. can be used either to run the fan at a fixed speed of 1750rpm or to cap the maximum speed when using automatic PWM control.
  • Extensive cabling options - The fan's short 20cm primary cable minimises cable clutter in typical applications while the supplied 30cm extension provides extended reach when necessary. Both cables are fully sleeved and a 4-pin y-cable allows the connection of a second NF-A8 PWM fan to the same PWM fan header for automatic control.
  • 6-year manufacturer's warranty - Noctua fans are renowned for their impeccable quality and outstanding longevity. Like all Noctua fans, the NF-A8 features an MTTF of more than 150.000 hours rating and comes with a full 6-year manufacturer's warranty.

The 80mm fans have four pins (direct for a motherboard header). [Unlike the smaller 60mm fans that have three pins and a 4-pin molex adapter which are not quite as good] This 80mm fan is very well engineered and manufactured, and is about as silent as youll find. Its quiet at higher speeds too but with the increased airflow you get the inherent airflow noise of course. New to Noctua but very very impressed with my four Noctua purchases so far. The rubber mounting pieces are brilliant and should be standard for ALL computer fans. The included low-speed fan adapters are a great idea, although I didnt need them as my motherboard has enough speed control. Would I buy this fan again? Yes absolutely. Update: Just like to say that I snapped one of the rubber mountings - I emailed Noctua and they sent me a couple of spares for free credit to them for looking after their customers!
