The “Redux” lineup is more ‘mid range’ than high end, and will be priced at about 75% of their standard Noctua counterparts. More importantly to most, they feature a nice looking monochrome colour scheme that I think would look fantastic in an all black build. This lineup includes fans only:
redux 140mm: EUR 15.90 / USD 19.90
redux 120mm: EUR 13.90 / USD 17.90
redux 92mm: EUR 11.90 / USD 15.90
redux 80mm: EUR 10.90 / USD 14.90
Noctua Redux will be available in 4-pin PWM and 3-pin models, with speeds ranging from 700-1700 RPM. There will be 13 models in total.
Another lineup announced today, Industrial PPC, will cater to the industrial (and ultra high end) market, and are available in 120mm and 140mm square format only. They are built with more durable materials than standard fans, with some models that are dust proof and water proof up to IP67.
If you’re wondering what means, it refers to the International Protection Marking IEC standard.
IP67 means that the fan is safe for “dust tight” and can be immersed in 1m of water for 30 minutes and will work fine when dried off.
The IP52 models are good for “dust protected” (dust can enter, but will not lower the performance of the product) and is protected against dripping water such as rainfall for 10 minutes at a 15 degree angle.
So yeah, these things will last in a PC case.
These do have a bit of brown on them, but I think most people will be interested in the Redux lineup anyway.
industrialPPC 140mm IP52: EUR 26.90 / USD 29.90
industrialPPC 140mm IP67: EUR 29.90 / USD 34.90
industrialPPC 120mm IP52: EUR 24.90 / USD 26.90
industrialPPC 120mm IP67: EUR 29.90 / USD 34.9
These fans range between 2000-3000 RPM, so definitely stray from Noctua’s usual target of ultra silent performance cooling.
Also introduced were several new accessories, intended to be used with these and other Noctua products. Unlike standard Noctua fans, these new models don’t come with any extra accessories. Each package listed below will sell for EUR 5.90 / USD 7.90.

For more information, check out Noctua’s announcement page. No mention has been made as to whether they will offer coolers with the Redux colour fans pre-installed. We’ll be getting some models that you might consider as a replacement to the stock brown/tan fans that come installed on coolers, and see how they perform. Stay tuned on Facebook or Twitter or Google+!
