Depends on if you don't mind volt modding (or just relying on your mobo and PWM). I don't mind and thus I will take a CM Blademaster or CM R4 or CM S4 (I ripped em off my V6GT and have one on a CNPS10X Flex and another on a 212+...GREAT fans) or a myriad of other kick ass fans out there over noctua's p12s. Noctua needs to step up and offer a faster version if they want to gain back enthusiasts as other mfg'ers HAVE stepped up their game. Of course that being said I use Np14s and occasionally P12s in low noise CASE fan locations. ;)

30 bucks for a fan is nuts. The newer NBs are very good..but NOT that good.
