Default Noctua presents NF-B9 92mm fan.

Vienna, February 6th 2008 - After the successful introduction of the NF-P12 120mm fan in November, Noctua presented today their first 92mm retail fan: The NF-B9 complements Noctua's much acclaimed 80 and 120mm fan series, which have been recommended by over 150 international websites and magazines, and achieves outstanding airflow and pressure performance at exceptionally low noise levels.

"Many avid Noctua users have already asked us for a 92mm model", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "After a development period of over 18 months, we're finally able to present a 92mm fan that fully meets our high demands and sets new standards in the 92mm range."

The NF-B9's highly-optimised blade design achieves an exceptional level of airflow and static pressure that most other fans can only reach at much higher speeds. For instance, the NF-B9 achieves no less than 64.3m³/h and 1.61mm H2O at 1600rpm.

Thanks to Noctua's advanced noise reduction techniques however, the NF-B9 is surprisingly quiet at only 17.6dB(A): Bevelled blade tips and the Vortex-Control Notches - already known from the successful NF-P12 - minimize aerodynamic noise. Noctua's well proven SSO-Bearing as well as the new SC drive system - already known from the NF-P12 - ensure outstanding quietness and long-term stability.

The NF-B9 has an MTBF of over 150.000 hours and comes with 6 years manufacturer's warranty. Using the supplied Low-Noise and Ultra-Low-Noise adaptors, the fan's speed can be reduced to 1300 resp. 1000 rpm thus achieving even greater quietness.

Price and availability
The NF-B9 is available immediately at a recommended price of EUR 17.90 / USD 21.90.

Awesome. About time they did a 92mm fan.

Now if they could just also make all their fans in black. Even just the outer frame in black.

Hell no.

They're beautiful.

Good to see them finally make some 92mm, though perhaps a bit late.
