Designed in Austria, Noctua's premium cooling components are internationally renowned for their superb quietness, exceptional performance and thoroughgoing quality. Having received more than 6000 awards and recommendations from leading hardware websites and magazines, Noctua's fans and heatsinks are serving hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers around the globe.

What does Noctua mean?

The little owl, Athene noctua, is the symbol of the Greek goddess Athene, who represents wisdom, science and strategy. She has a marked preference for the most clever among the Greek heroes, like Odysseus, who endure their adventures by the use of savvy consideration instead of mere force. The owl has always symbolised intelligence and prudence, and with its manlike face, it is the emblem of attentiveness and communication. We at Noctua imitate its attributes of calm and accurate observation in the dark, its soundless flight as well as the effective, economical use of its powers and precise attack.

Company history and background

Noctua originates from a collaboration between the Austrian Rascom Computerdistribution Ges.m.b.H. and the Taiwanese cooling specialist Kolink International Corporation, pooling more than thirty years of experience in the development, manufacturing and marketing of high-end cooling components. Established in 2005, Noctua took international silent enthusiasts' hearts by storm and quickly developed into one of the most acclaimed suppliers of premium quality quiet cooling products. Today, Noctua is present in more than 30 countries across the globe and working with several hundred sales partners. Chosen by noise-conscious PC users, system integrators and industry clients alike, Noctua has become synonymous with impeccable quality, excellent customer service and class-leading quiet cooling performance.


Scientific know-how pooling and state-of-the-art simulation environments enable the development of advanced, highly optimised products that set new performance benchmarks for noise efficiency. Over the years, Noctua has put itself at the forefront of quiet cooling innovations with its unique, psychoacoustically optimised impeller designs as well as new bearing and drive technologies such as the SSO-Bearing (Self-Stabilising Oil Pressure Bearing) or the Smooth Commutation Drive (SCD) system. Thanks to advanced aerodynamic design measures like Vortex-Control Notches, Flow Acceleration Channels or Inner Surface Microstructures, Noctua's products are renowned for pushing the envelope in axial fan technology.

Quality and service

In a market that's increasingly driven by cost saving rather than customer dedication and flooded with branded budget products, we take pride in striving for excellence in both product and service quality. For example, our heatsinks feature all soldered joints for maximum performance and durability, our fans' 150,000h+ MTBF is backed up by a full 6 years’ manufacturer's warranty and whenever AMD or Intel introduced new CPU sockets, we provided our customers with mounting kits free of charge. As a result, an ever-growing base of avid Noctua users not only swears by the thoroughgoing premium quality of our products, but also by our excellent, customer-friendly service.

Industrial applications

While the Noctua brand has its origins in PC cooling technology, the outstanding quiet cooling efficiency and superior reliability of our premium-grade fans and heatsinks are equally beneficial for various applications outside the realm of PC cooling: The same virtues that have established Noctua products as an elite choice among demanding PC enthusiasts also make them ideal for a wide range of industrial applications. For example, our fans and heatsinks are being used in fields as diverse as solar engineering, LED cooling, storage solutions, household appliances or highly critical domains such as laboratory devices or medical technology. No matter whether it’s in surgery equipment or servers that run important software, Noctua’s thermal solutions have proven that they’re up to the task when it comes to industrial applications that require excellent quiet cooling performance, class-leading energy efficiency and uncompromising dependability.
