The Noctua NF-F12 is packaged in an off-white rectangular box. The front has a line drawing of the enclosed fan. On the right side of the front cover is a small window displaying part of the fan. The front cover opens up “book like” to reveal four pages of information on Noctua’s focused flow system, and a diagram of a disassembled NF-F12. On the back of the package is a paragraph translated into 7 different languages. The paragraph describes some of the NF-F12 features along with its intended use; also on the back of the box is the fan specifications, and accessory list.
Inside the box is a foldout paper guide that covers: installation, connections, cleaning, and warranty information. On the back of the guide is a one paragraph letter addressed to the customer that congratulates them on their purchase. The letter also covers quality assurance practices, reinforcing to the consumer that your Noctura NF-F12 has been thoroughly tested, and is in perfect working condition. Also inside, in a clear plastic container, is your Noctura NF-F12 PMW fan with accessories. The fan comes connected to a 20cm sleeved cable with a four pin PWM connector. The accessories included with the Noctura NF-F12 are: a splitter to run two fans off one PWM connection, a 30cm extension cable giving you a total of 50cm of cable length, a low-noise adapter to run your fan at 7 volts instead of 12v, 4 rubber anti-vibration mounts, and 4 standard fan screws should you chose to use them. The fact that all the cables are sleeved lets you know Noctua didn’t overlook any aspect of this product. The amount of accessories is greatly appreciated as well. The Noctura NF-F12’s packaging is well organized and informative; the traditional Noctua color scheme rounds out the packaging.
