Featuring advanced aerodynamic design measures such as Flow Acceleration Channels and Noctua’s AAO frame, the NF-A12x15 is a highly optimised, premium quality quiet fan in size 120x15mm. Its 15mm slim design makes the NF-A12x15 ideal for space-restricted applications such as low-profile CPU coolers or HTPC cases. The PWM version sports Noctua’s custom-designed NE-FD1 IC for fully automatic speed control via 4-pin fan headers and comes with a Low-Noise Adaptor to reduce the maximum speed during PWM control from 1850 to 1400rpm. Its superb running smoothness, reference-class SSO2 bearing and Noctua’s trusted premium quality make it an elite choice for the highest demands.
15mm slim design
Having a thickness of only 15mm, the NF-A12x15 is much slimmer than standard 120x25mm fans. This makes it ideal for typical slim fan applications such as low-profile CPU coolers as well as for freeing up space by replacing standard 120x25mm fans on tower coolers, radiators or in PC cases.
The NF-A12x15 features the further optimised 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 stabilisation, precision and durability.
Flow Acceleration Channels
The NF-A12x15 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.
Integrated anti-vibration pads
Integrated Anti-Vibration Pads made from extra-soft silicone minimise the transmission of minute vibrations while maintaining full compatibility with all standard mounting systems and fan clips used on heatsinks.

Only comment is that these Premium models come with such a great packaging (box opens with flaps from both sides, with velcro and full color graphics) that it feels like such a waste to throw thoseaway, and perhaps these could be a couple of pounds cheaper too ;)
If you don't like the beige/brown scheme, go for Redux series or Chromax series. Same quality, different colours.
Once you go Noctua, you never go back.
The fan is extremely quiet at every speed. The anti-vibration pads and mounts do an excellent job at preventing rattling and resonance. Instructions are very clear and easy to follow.
Of course (you can see it from the picture) the product looks very unattractive due to a puke-y choice of colours. It's Noctua's favourite colour scheme and everyone agrees that it sucks. Who knows why they would insist on using it.
Fan is 4-Pin so is PWM capable.
I run the fan on average at 40% most of the time and the fan is completely silent. The temperature of my case does not reach temperatures required to push the fan to its limit very often.
Fan comes with cable extension lead and low noise adapters to run the fan at lower voltages, but they really are not necessary with this fan
I recommend this for anyone with tighter space requirements in their case.
Pros - slimmer than most fans available, whisper quiet, and extremely high quality parts.
Comes with extra cables and adaptors and very well packaged.
Cons - that color... Not for me but since its an exhaust fan and my case has no windows it didn't matter. Also, the price was a little high for a non rgb fan.
Though the price was a little high, I would definitely buy more (and need to) as I can be assured all the parts are of top quality.
