Noisy fan OCZ StealthXStream 700W

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Last year when I was completing my new rig I bought OCZ StealthXStream 700W to have some extra power. When I first turn it on the fan was horrible noisy, but it was normal for this model (a lot of people complain about this PSU fan).
Than I decided to do a fan swap and replace the noisy turbo fan made by Yate Loon, I think it was D12BH-12 with 89 CFM, 2300 RPM and 41dB noise, for a swap I found fan with similar CFM - Scythe Slip Stream 1600 RPM, 88 CFM with 33.00 dBA.
Everything was great after swap but now after few months something weird is happening to Scythe fan, it started to make rattling noise from time to time. Maybe this fan can`t work in horizontal position?
