Premium 40mm Cooling
Featuring advanced aerodynamic design measures such as Flow Acceleration Channels and an AAO frame, the NF-A4x10 5V PWM is a PWM-enabled 5V variant of Noctua’s award-winning, premium quality quiet 40x10mm fan. The custom-designed NE-FD3 PWM IC that integrates Smooth Commutation Drive technology and Noctua’s reference class SSO2 bearings guarantees superb running smoothness and excellent long-term stability. Topped off with modular cabling, the OmniJoin Adaptor Set and 6 years manufacturer’s warranty, the NF-A4x10 5V PWM is a premium choice for demanding 5V applications that require PWM control.
PLEASE NOTE: Being a 5V fan, the NF-A4x10 5V PWM cannot be run at 12V and will be damaged when used with typical 12V power sources such as PC motherboard fan headers.
Award-winning NF-A4x10 Design
Having received more than 50 awards and recommendations from the international press, Noctua’s NF-A4x10 has become a proven premium choice for 40mm cooling needs. Its renowned efficiency has convinced tens of thousands of customers all over the world.
5V PWM Version
Many devices such as network or storage solutions use 5-volt 40mm fans with PWM speed control. With the same operating voltage, PWM support and the included OmniJoin™ adaptor set that makes it compatible with proprietary fan headers, the NF-A4x10 5V PWM is ideal for replacing noisy or broken 5V 40mm fans with PWM.
Reduced Motor Hub Size
Thanks to its streamlined, compact motor design, the NF-A4x10's motor hub is smaller than with conventional 4cm fans. This allows for more blade surface area and thus contributes to the NF-A4x10's superior airflow and pressure performance.
Flow Acceleration Channels
The NF-A4x10 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.
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 plowing 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 minimize the transmission of minute vibrations while maintaining full compatibility with all standard mounting systems and fan clips used on heatsinks.
Custom-designed PWM IC with SCD
Supporting fully automatic PWM speed control, the NF-A4x10 5V PWM uses Noctua’s custom-designed NE-FD3 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.
As many devices using 5V fans feature proprietary connectors, and documentation of the pin alignment may not be available, the fan features an integrated diode for polarity protection. This way, you're on the safe side if you accidentally connect it with reverse polarity.
The NF-A4x10 features the further optimized 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 stabilization, precision, and durability.
OmniJoin™ Adaptor Set
Many devices featuring 40mm fans use proprietary fan headers, so the NF-A4x10 comes with Noctua's OmniJoin™ adaptor set. Just cut the original fan's cable, fix it to the adaptor using the supplied 3M Scotchlok™ connectors and you can plug the NF-A4x10 into proprietary fan headers!
USB Power Adaptor Cable
The fan includes a USB power adaptor cable that allows it to run on power banks, devices with USB host ports, or USB power supplies such as those used for smartphones, giving you near endless possibilities for using the fan in your home, in your car or wherever a need for cooling occurs!
Extensive Cabling Options
The fan's short 20cm primary cable minimizes cable clutter in typical applications while the supplied 30cm extension provides extended reach when necessary. Both cables are fully sleeved.
6-Year Manufacturer’s Warranty
Noctua fans are renowned for their impeccable quality and outstanding longevity. Like all Noctua fans, the NF-A4x10 features an MTTF of more than 150.000 hours rating and comes with a full 6-year manufacturer's warranty.
