I have fitted my SP120 fan back on today with a grill, temps aren't too bad actually, it looks soooo nice and its really quiet apart from a low humming noise which i am trying to stop with washersas it could be vibrating on the case. My top GPU reaches around 70c with this fan which to be honest is a good temperature considering the noise difference and the fact i have two overclocked cards in SLI!

I see you have an sp, have you tried an af series to see the difference in temps?

Hmm, have you tried running it outside the case just to see if it's the engine noise or some kind of vibration?

I can see the acrylic resonating with the vibration. Try a different/slower fan maybe. Seems like side panel fans are always the loudest because 1. it's facing towards you 2. it could resonate with the whole panel.

Yeah i know its right next to your ear so is going to be annoying! The AP-15 is the quietest at faster speeds so was going to stick with that. Just took the blades off to spray blue to match my build but the little clip on the back went flying and i cant find it anywhere ARGHHHH Maybe i can use a cable tie or hair clip as a substitute when i fit it back on!

So my AP-15 is back together and seems to work fine!

Here's the result...i still need to figure a way of stopping the droaning noise above 1200RPM with the guard fitted but apart from that its good









A word of warning for anyone wanting to paint their AP-15, the little clip on the back is a pain to get off and when it comes off it flies into the air never to be seen again! Luckily i had some tiny O rings which slotted over the shaft of the fan to hold it in place and seem to be doing the trick at the moment.
