HAF-X Side fan?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Seems louder than the rest. No rackling or vibrations from what i can here, but it does not sound as well as the rest from day one. Just too loud.

People with the same fan and case don't have this issue.
I appriciate your help and suggestions guy's, thank you!

Well mine has appeared to have slipped its sleeve so it is horrible comapred to the others.

I wish CM would have included some 120mm mounts so I could go crazy with some Gentle Typhoons tongue.gif.

Did you take it off and compare side by side with another? Maybe its just going bad or is bad. You could try oiling it, guide in my sig.

I also had to unscrew the screws a little bit because the fan was just touching onto the dust catcher too!

Well if i turn the PC down onto it's back there is no noise. It's a ticking noise. No matter how secure i put the fan on and side panel, it still ticks. It's due to vibrations for sure.

That sounds like a bogus fan to me. RMA? if not try to oil/lube it. you can also take the fan off the pannel, and hold it in your hand while its running to see if it is the motor. if it isnt the motor pick up some Sticky foam sheets for cheap at a local hobby store. and make your own fan noise suppresion kit:)

Just did this test before reading your post. It is the fan. Held it upwards in my hand. Tickers a bit.

I haven't had any ticking noise at all from my side fan. It sounds like you have a bad fan rather than noise caused by vibration.

If you take the side off and hold it while it's on, does it still make the ticking noise?

The HAF 932 side panel will fit on a HAF X (I have the full window version of the 932 panel on mine). The stock 932 panel has 4 120mm fan mounts. Just so you know! biggrin.gif

Here's a pic of one with the panel!!:
