Noctua NF-P14 FLX Case Fan Review - Pictures

The packaging for the NF-P14 FLX takes a slight detour from Noctua's typical appearance with a very modern, mostly white box surrounding a very typical-looking brown/black/blue box listing several features of the fan.

The back of the box, however, is very typical for Noctua's packaging, and contains tons of pertinent information about the various specs and features.

Here are the contents of the NF-P14 FLX completely laid out, including anti-vibration mounting hardware, as well as standard fan screws, as well as speed-modifying cables as well as a 3 pin to 4-pin molex adapter.  The very typical light/dark brown fan coloring can be seen on the fan itself, and you may also notice that there is basically no bezel on this fan whatsoever, and is a nice little detail, as it keeps its overall size down by quite a large margin.

These three images show just how much technology is employed into making these fans the best of the best.  The vortex control notches help prevent the air from swirling and making what are essentially small tornadoes.  Vortices are a huge part of fan noise, as well as helicopters, and just as the new "silent" helicopter blades recently developed accomplish this feat by eliminating vortices, so does the NF-P14 FLX through these vortex control notches, and the very complex blade geometry I tried diligently to portray in these photos.
