Article Publish Date:
I first heard of NOCTUA about a year ago and since then they have made a Gigantic leap by introducing many innovative products in the PC Cooling market.
By Cooperating with many other corporations NOCTUA has a huge and impressive experience in the Cooling department which not only helps them to keep improving their Cooling solutions but also ensures that they make some of the best PC Cooling products.
Noctua aims at establishing a new level of quality and performance "Designed in Austria" through paying attention to the users' needs in a market burdened with all kinds of frills and furbelows and providing sound-optimised premium components, which serve their purpose in a smart, precise and reliable manner.
COMPETENCE THROUGH COOPERATION
Noctua arises from a cooperation between the Austrian Rascom Computerdistribution Ges.m.b.H and the Taiwanese Kolink International Corporation and entertains a development partnership with the Austrian Institute of Heat Transmission and Fan Technology (Österreichisches Institut für Wärmeübertragung und Ventilatorentechnik, ÖIWV). These connections form the key to the achievement of our goal: The partnership with the ÖIWV permits the application of scientific measurement instrumentation, methods of calculation and simulation technology in the R&D process. Rascom's long, customer-oriented experience in developing and distributing sound-optimised high-end products ensures a clear focus on the users' needs. The use of Kolink's advanced manufacturing technology and ultra-modern production plants allows us to efficiently implement our technical edge and provide solutions of the highest standard in quality and performance.
RASCOM COMPUTERDISTRIBUTION GES.M.B.H
Rascom Computerdistribution Ges.m.b.H. is specialised in the distribution of PC accessories for the highest demands. Business customers and consumers alike benefit from a product range that is selected according to strict quality criteria, a high level of availability and personal, obliging service. The core of the business activities is made up of cooling (with a special focus on silent components), design- and high-end cases and quality power supplies. Furthermore, Rascom offers a broad range of high grade accessories (e.g. external drive enclosures, removable racks, input devices, etc.), whereas direct import from the far east, continuous contact with international manufacturers and the attendance at trade fairs permit a fast and flexible reaction to new trends.
At Noctua, Rascom employees contribute their know-how mainly in the areas of R&D, marketing and support and manage the second level of the Noctua quality assurance program. In addition, the import to Europe and the supply of distributors and resellers is conducted by Rascom.
"In a difficult market, technical advantage, thoroughgoing quality and complete customer orientation are in demand. Our long experience in developing, importing and distributing sound-optimised premium components decisively contribute to Noctua's compliance with these requirements."
Mag. Roland Mossig, CEO Rascom Computerdistribution Ges.m.b.H
KOLINK INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION
Kolink International Corporation is a cooling specialist established in 1996 and well known among industry insiders. Throughout the years, Kolink designed and manufactured many top-performing heat-sinks under various brand names that succeeded in international markets. An experienced R&D team and ultra-modern production plants in Taiwan will ensure continuous progress, efficient manufacturing conditions and strict quality standards. Kolink's retail brand "Coolink" is just about to venture into the European retail market.
At Noctua, Kolink is involved in the R&D process and responsible for the manufacturing and on-site quality control, which is the first level of the Noctua quality assurance program that was framed in coordination with Rascom.
"We're very confident about the prospect of Noctua. Their advanced and focused R&D department is a pleasure to work with. We always enjoy trustful cooperation at a professional level with people who know their own minds."

AUSTRIAN INSTITUTE FOR HEAT-TRANSMISSION & FAN TECHNOLOGY
The Austrian Institute for Heat-Transmission and Fan Technology (Österreichisches Institut für Wärmeübertragung und Ventilatorentechnik, ÖIWV) was originated in 2004 by Mag. Manfred Stadler MBA and Mag. Roland Mossig, CEO Rascom Computerdistribution Ges.m.b.H, to harness existing capacities in industry and research in support of new developments in electronics and component cooling as well as stimulating application and market oriented research projects. The ÖIWV's fields of activity involve detailed monitoring of the international scientific development, publication activity, patent situation and market situation, project-oriented resource and know-how pooling between Austrian research facilities and high-tech companies. The priority objective is to give a competitive edge in development to the projects of Austrian companies through the application of scientific measurement instrumentation, methods of calculation and simulation technology.
The development partnership between Noctua and the ÖIWV is made up of a variety of different research projects, surveys and test series, which, combined with the institute's know how pool, form the crucial technical basis for the development of Noctua products. The use of scientific testbeds and simulation environments shortens development times and accelerates internal evaluation procedures.
"The development partnership between the ÖIWV and Noctua clearly shows how the enormous potential of Austrian research facilities and high-tech companies can be implemented in market leading quality products with economic success."
Mag. Manfred Stadler MBA
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. Until today, the owl symbolises intelligence and prudence, its manlike face emblematises attentiveness and communication. We from Noctua follow the suit of its calm and accurate observation in the dark, its soundless flight as well as the effective, economical use of its powers and precise attack.
